To level-set, being from England the standard of Mexican food I think somewhat lower than you get in the US. Nachos and dips being served as you look at the menu is not generally a thing in the UK, so this came as a nice...More

A quick brunch with a work friend. At first we had doubts but the service and food was very good. A small but nice range of different breakfast options with fresh ingredients and a little more effort than the usual Mexican food.

I went alone and ordered the chicken enchilada mole. The taste just wasn't what I would expect of an enchilada. To me it just really wasn't there and did not taste like Mexican food. The enchilada was also too thick. I regretted not having crossed...More
