About Lupita Central

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.

Lupita Central has a bright, funky décor. Which is as vibrant as the Lupita menu, which offers everything from Tacos, Tostadas and Enchiladas to Salads, Soups and Totopos.

Lupita Central has an extensive drinks list, some of Mexico’s hard-to-find beers, including Pacifico, Modelo Especial, as well as our much-loved margaritas, made using the best Agave Tequila.

Love the food and the drinks! A must every time we visit London... But how can you refer to “South American delicacies” on the about section when this is a Mexican restaurant? You should know Mexico is not in South America! Will come back but please change that description

I appreciate that the manager was kind and flexible in moving my booking to a later time at short notice. It was on a busy Friday evening so his friendly and accommodating attitude was much appreciated.

Enjoyable food and drink. The churros were great but a bit on the small side. Lively atmosphere. Seats could be more comfortable.

The food was great, but although I didn't actually a particularly large meal, my meal was quite expensive for what it was. Lupita's atmosphere was lovely, very vibrant and fun, but the service was quite bad - we waited over half an hour for our food order to be taken, and then another half hour for the bill.

Just what we had hoped for. Fantastic attention to detail for one of our friends (who is a coeliac). Less spicy than we had anticipated , but excellent Margaritas

Despite booking a table, we were left waiting for 20 minutes whilst other tables were given to walk-in guests. However! The food was amazing and the waiting team were fabulous. Definitely worth it!

starters were ok, although the avocado lacked onion/garlic. First jug of margarita was excellent, the next had far less alcohol. The main courses were inedible: very cheap watery beef and chicken and the rice was out of a packet. VERY disappointing. If I had bought that food in a shop I would have taken it back and asked for my money back but with restaurant dining we just have to put up with being ripped off. I couldn't even take off the service because the service was good.

Of all the Mexican choices I had through many years of living in the UK, La Lupita is probably the best however three things in my last visit. I resent that they don’t do refills of Fresh Horchata anymore... this was a good sailing point for us in the past but this time we have a jug for four of us and before we could have our glasses refil for free although the waitress insisted this never been the case I had it done at least twice in past visits. Second, being from Mexico City I can say food is good but very pricey in comparison for what you would get in Mexico, at the end of the day this is still street food and for the same price we would have a very fancy meal in Mexico. Lastly although I always leave good tips (and in Mexico is usually 10%) I really didn’t justify the 12.5% added to the bill specially without asking, this would be consider really rude in Mexico and most people would actually react negatively to this been added without previous consent.

The service was abysmal. The waiter brought my margarita to the wrong table and when I pointed it out to the waiter, it took him 30 minutes to get me a new one. We also requested water and did not get any either. As a result, we had to endure eating our spicy food without any drinks to wash the food down. This was my 4th time here but am unlikely to return.
