Perched next to the popular Croydon Valley Leisure Park, Chiquito Croydon offers its guests an authentic Mexican experience. This lively eatery offers striking décor and the relaxing tones of Latin-American music.

Packed with authentic dishes from both sides of the border, the Chiquito menu captures the essence of all things Tex Mex. Start the fiesta with fully-loaded nachos or the soft taco sharer between a few amigos, before sampling the famous fajitas and burritos, or a classic chilli con carne. A take on the traditional Mexican market, the street food section of the menu features sweet chorizo croquettes, patatas bravas, and a flavour-packed Mexican frittata.

Family-friendly entertainment and a fun kids' menu evokes a vibrant atmosphere at Chiquito restaurant in Croydon. From the bar, a colourful selection of cocktails, mocktails, and tequilas will add a kick to any meal, whilst an extensive range of wines and beers are also on offer.

With a laidback vibe, Croydon Chiquito offers a relaxed retreat in this quaint suburb of London. Waddon Rail Station sits just 4 minutes’ drive away.

    The restaurant didn't meet our expectations
    The food was of poor standard. The Cod and Mango dish was well
    And the other dish of rice and chicken was not good value. The rice was served on a plate the size of a tea suacer and at £58 was not good value

    Sadly to say will not be returning. Service was very slow. Restaurant was not very busy. Waited 20 mins after we got our table before a waitress came over yo order our drinks. Which by then we wanted to order our food. After waiting 50 mins for the food. I had to ask where our order was. My daughters food was over cooked and very dry. After eating our food took another 20 mins or so for the table to be cleared. Then the waitress came back 10 mins later asking if we wanted dessert. Which I declined as we have been waiting far to long. The waitress then did apologise for the long wait. Which by then was too late.

    Unfortunately my experience was extremely poor from the minute my party was seated. Poor service, poor drinks and extremely poor food. Took an hour before our starters arrived, restaurant did not have any beef or steaks and when the main eventually turned up 2 hours after being seated all food completely cold. In the end spoke with a manger who agreed and wavered the cost of the night. This went some way in redeeming the evening but the birthday celebration was ruined. Will not be returning. All other Chiiquito restaurants visited have been fantastic. very disappointed.

    Food was way over cooked the cod I ordered was uneadable as well my side dish being burnt, couldn't even cut the cheese it was that bad. Won't be coming back I know that for sure!

    Didn't start out very well. 40 mins into sitting down we still didn't even have a drink as manager was faffing about with the menus. The meals were nice although small portions. Do not order sweet potato wedges. For £4 a side dish, we were served SIX wedges. SIX wedges for £4?! What an extreme joke, more than half of minimum wage on 6 dried up pieces of sweet potato. The restaurant wasn't busy but spent a fair while waiting for someone to take dessert order. Thankfully dessert was nice and there was a wide range of choices available. Lovely cocktails available. And to round it off, after being given the bill had another Long wait for someone to bring the card machine. Would return. Hopefully on a better service day.
