Cracking little place, best Mexican food in the city in my opinion. Drinks are a bit pricey but they are tasty. Been a number of times & will always return.

I visited here with friends in late May. The staff were friendly and very efficient. However, I found the food to be bland and the portions were small. The options for vegetarians were limited and it wasn't cheap. I wouldn't go back.

Food was poor, hot in some places, cold in others. Tasteless, trying to be covered up with far too much chilli. Staff were uninterested and did not even ask if we had enjoyed our meal. The only good thing was the magaritas. A complete waste...More

Description
London's most authentic Mexican taquería. The same tastes, ingredients, flavors and smells found in Mexico City. As one of the most popular restaurants providing authentic Mexico City cuisine in London, the chefs at Lupita pride themselves on the authenticity of their dishes. Choosing to use only fresh, flavoursome ingredients to create exciting and tastebud tingling dishes, the menus at Lupita are a true reflection of the incredible flavours, colours and smells found throughout Mexico. In September 2012, Zagat, the worldwide ratings and reviews website for restaurants, released their London 2012 survey results announcing that Lupita had made the top five Mexican restaurants in the city.Enjoy a wide range of dishes from tacos, tostadas, quesadillas and enchiladas to salads, soups and totopos (traditional homemade tortilla chips) before washing it all down with one of Lupita’s much loved margaritas (made with 100% agave tequila).The team at Lupita are also proud to offer diners the opportunity to taste some of Mexico’s hard-to-find beers including Pacifico, Modelo Especial and Negra Modelo as well as a variety of Mexican, South American and Spanish wines.
