    This was a wonderful experience, from the attentive, welcoming and friendly staff to the delicious food! The restaurant has a lovely atmosphere which was buzzing but not too loud that you couldn’t hear the conversation at your own table. Our waiter, I think his name was Gaetano, clearly explained the menu and made recommendations which were spot on as some of my friends were not a fan of anything to spicy or hot. My favourite dishes were the tostados which were superb as were the calamari and sea bass ceviche. His wine recommendations were also perfect. Overall we had a lovely evening although marred at the end by my friends scarf going missing. Highly recommend.

    I visited Leicester Square Kitchen dining on the pre theatre set menu! We had six dishes in total that we split between the two of us. The food was delicious, the stand out dishes have to be the duck and pomegranate salad and the tiger prawns with cayenne pepper mayo! We were there from 1700-1830 and it really was very quiet for a bank holiday Monday but it still had a nice and relaxed atmosphere. The interior of the restaurant is beautifully and tastefully done and will definitely consider going back if we are in the area.

    Food was excellent. Fresh flavours which married together beautifully. Nice relaxed pace with sharing plates arriving at regular intervals. My only negative was the table which was quite close to the door and on a blustery evening was a little chilly.

    Service was brilliant, drinks were great. Barman and waitress was very helpful. Food was over priced and the tacos were over whelmed with the taste of lime. The duck salad was the best dish, which was probably because u could actually taste the flavour and it wasn’t over powered with the taste of lime. We were 99% sure we did not get all of the dishes we ordered but in a way we greatful as we could not stomach much more lime.

    Excellent food mainly spicy which I like, table could have done with being a little bigger as we could only fit two dishes at a time.

    Wonderfully different dining experience. The staff were lovely and explained the best way to order from the menu. Mario, our waiter was very helpful and somehow our glasses were never empty, but he wasn't intrusive. Very different Mexican food from what I've had before, and couldn't say which was the favourite dish as it was all wonderful.
