Wahaca Mexican Restaurant (Covent Garden, London) Reviews
Description:Address: 66 Chandos Place / Covent Garden / London WC2N 4HG
Newest Review: ... several screens; I presume that each screen was a diagram of an area of the restaurant, covered by one waiter or waitress and the diagram could show where there were free tables. By checking the screens before seating new diners, the 'modern maitre d'' could be sure to be spreading diners around fairly among the waiters. The staff are all youthful (but not really young, old enough to have ... more

I'm a big fan of Thomasina Miers: for those who don't know, she's a former Masterchef winner who went on to present a couple of her own television series (including the recent 'Mexican Made Simple' which is a really good show and sadly lost in the murk of Channel 5) and to open a small chain of restaurants in London serving predominantly street food from Mexico; I say predominantly because Wahaca serves a selection of more substantial main course dishes in addition to the smaller, tapas style dishes which form the mainstay of the offering. It's taken me a while to get there but I've finally been to Wahaca; pronounced 'Wa-haka' the name is an Anglicisation, or an easy to . Read the complete review

ABOUT THE RESTAURANT Wahaca is a chain of London restaurants that serve Mexican 'street food'. They offer a range of different mini dishes, where you can order 2 or 3 each and share them amongst your group or have them to yourself! And some main courses where you don't need to worry about sharing! (I love my food and don't like to share!). MY INTRODUCTION TO WAHACA The Covent Garden branch of Wahaca is nearest to my work, which is why I come here the most (even though the Soho branch has a Mojito bar!). I was introduced to the chain by my previous boss, who took me here one lunch and ordered half the menu! If any friends say ... Read the complete review

I visited this restaurant last week with a mate and have to say it was not as bad as some reviews i've had from family but not as good as some of the reviews i've read also. Location: Located on Chandos Place, just off of Covent Garden main square its a great location for transport within an easy 5 minute walk of Charing Cross tube and mainline, as well as Embankment, Leicester Square and Covent Garden Tubes, the place is in a basement and down a flight of stairs but is well signposted and generally has a myriad of people hanging about outside. Service: This was fine, we had gone in their as my mate said he had a crush on one ... Read the complete review

I arranged to meet a friend here for dinner a couple of Friday nights ago - I had been previously to the one in Canary Wharf, and we had made plans to go out in Covent Garden afterwards, so I thought this was worth a shot. I had called beforehand to make reservations, but they don't take them. We arrived at 7.00pm, thinking it was well before the dinner rush hour (or after, if we were going to compete with those going to the theater). We were told that it would be a 2.5 hour wait for a table (for 2). We had not seen each other for a while, so we took up their offer to get a bottle of wine at the bar and catch up while we waited for our table. They ... Read the complete review

First things first, this place gets very busy indeed. So be prepared to come along, give your names and then have to come back in around 1 - 2 hours - and that's just fitting in a table for 2 of us. You'll also often be sat right next to others, so if you want space, this won't be the place for you. I have been told they don't take bookings over the phone so you will need to turf up in person to get a table. We've (my wife and I) been a couple of times, which I guess is a good sign in that we came back, and we would go again. The first occasion we didn't quite realise how things worked, so tried to order starter then main, but they make it clear ... Read the complete review
