Great interesting food. I’ve not tried the larger courses but myself and my girlfriend got 3 small courses and they were very good and filled us completely. The new haggis tacos are also great! Make a reservation if going on the weekend though as it was a 45 minute wait at one point!

Thank you Luke,

This is a great little review. We sure hope you return again soon! In fact, if you need any further excuses to do so I can highly recommend our new specials. The Crispy Duck Croquetas served with our sticky sweet Chipotle Hibiscus Salsa will leave you wanting more and the Chargrilled Hispi served with a creamy cashew nut mole needs to be tried & will be a hit for sure.

Till the next adventure,
Claire

Ola Tommii,

Your review is by far the most original I have seen yet! Your better half's taste should be rewarded, so why don't you send us a wee email to edinburgh@wahaca.co.uk and we would like to twist your arm, invite you back and see if we can't make it a 5 star "most original" review. We'll also throw in a table for you that's not close to a boombox for good measure :)

Bestest,
Claire

You spoil us Lauren, a big thank you to you too! If you love it so much we invite you to become a regular :) In fact send us a wee email at edinburgh@wahaca.co.uk & we'd love to spoil you with a couple of street food dishes on us for next time you visit.

Many thanks,
Claire

I visited Wahaca for the first time with a friend. The food we had was lovely - a steak dish and a pork burrito. However the service was somewhat lacking - awkward and unwillingness to swap rice to sweet potato, which would have been fine if no was said politely instead of abruptly. Also felt like we were forgotten about at the end. We said we didn't want dessert, were finishing off our drinks and we never got spoken to again until we had to force attention to get the bill. We said bye and thanks on the way out but got no reaction from the three staff chatting at the bar.

Hi there,

We are grateful to you for writing about your experience & we regret that your first visit wasn't the kind of first time head-turning experience we endeavor to give everyone. We would like to investigate further, so we can ensure that next time you visit it won't be just the food that blows you away. If you could email us with further details including the date you visited at edinburgh@wahaca.co.uk we will get to the bottom of this and will certainly try to twist your arm to come back again and give us another go.

Warmest regards,
Claire
