Offering some of London's most authentic Mexican dining, Lupita Central is inspired by a single charcoal grill taquería, which has drawn hordes of diners from all over Mexico since it opened in 1962. Enjoy views of South American delicacies being rustled up in the island open kitchen, which sizzles with the sound of chefs at work.

The bright, funky décor is as vibrant as the Lupita menu, which offers everything from tacos, tostadas and enchiladas to salads, soups and totopos. The sharing platters are bursting with selections of their finest, with veggie and seafood options, while the tempting quesadillas are full of surprises, including Nopales cactus and Huitlacoche Mexican truffle.

Indulge in tacos loaded with exciting fillings in one of London's most popular Mexican restaurants. Try Pastor, pork fillets and bacon marinated in Lupita’s special blend of herbs and fruits, or the protein-packed Gobernador with shrimps, cheese and chipotle sauce, then wash it all down with one of Lupita’s much-loved margaritas, made using the best Agave Tequila.

Lupita in London’s extensive drinks list also boasts some of Mexico’s hard-to-find beers, including Pacifico, Modelo Especial & Negra Modelo, as well as a variety of South American and Spanish wines. Charing Cross Tube Station is a minute’s walk away.

    Met some friends at Lupita for dinner and it was great. We tried the chicharron de queso for the first time - delicious! Highly recommend! And their margaritas are good too, recommend getting the pitcher to share.

    It was well located and a pleasant environment to eat in. The waitress was very nice and attentive. The food however was not that brilliant and it was far far to expensive.

    Good food, good service and very conveniently located venue. Staff is friendly and "tacos campechanos" are delicious, apart from pastor tacos. Churros is a must for dessert.

    I was really disappointed by the food. The guacamole was good, but the ceviche was stodgy, the nachos and the chicken in the tacos was flavourless. The service was ok but slow in patches. I wI probably wouldn't go back.

    Been coming to Lupita for a couple of years and sadly food now seems to be slipping with tacos being overly greasy and freshness of before not there as much. Same good Mexican tastes but quality seems to have dropped while prices have gone up. Guess that eventually happens with a lot of places as they become established.. Service is still lovely.

    We had a great time on our first visit but this was our second time and it was not so good. Firstly we wanted more tortilla chips for the guacamole and they would not even let us pay for more. There were a lot of us and we spent £400 so I think they could have let us pay for more. That was annoying. Then my son got a very bad stomach upset which can only have been caused by the food there. So we will not be going back.
