Restaurant easy to get to. Service was good, food fresh and tasty. Good value for money. I like that you have a choice of tapas or a main meal. Option to pay by app which is helpful if restaurabtbis busy.

Visiting London on a day out, me and girlfriend decided that we wanted to try Mexican cuisine. It was our first time visiting a Wahaca, we weren’t disappointed. Staff were friendly and helpful, our waiter was nice and he kindly recommended some dishes for us....More

Hi Lynda - definitely! You can see our gluten advice menu on our website, and our team can advise on lactose on the day. Often this just requires removing a cheese or crema garnish. Hope we'll see you soon.

Description
The original and still the best! As popular now as the day it opened, Wahaca Covent Garden collides the heat of the Mexican market with all the coolness of London's trendy West End, in an explosion of colour, texture and noise. Enjoy the funky music and lively surroundings in the bar while you wait to be seated.
