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.
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.
we didn't pay for our food as staff realised how terrible the service was. cold food that took ages to arrive. our server was lovely and did her best. but I won't be going back. it was a Monday and they just couldn't get it together.
Very good place! Totally recommended! :)
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.
Both our dishes were very tasty, and I would happily come to Lupita again. Great cocktails too!
Pleasantly surprised, food was amazing !!! And came pretty quick aswell
Very good food and drinks. A little expensive considering the kind of food
Tasty food, but not the most cosy atmosphere
Wonderful food, everything we had was great! Cocktails were also excellent! I would recommend this for hanging out with friends or a casual date night!
Authentic mexican cuisine, a good menu, amd food was delicious. Great place to get a bite to eat with friends. We had a lovely time. The barman making cocktails was fantastic. The service at the table was outstanding. A great atmosphere, but for us the music was a little too loud. We loved Lupita and will be back.
The young lady who served us was very professional yet very friendly. A real joy - lovely smile! We all enjoyed our food which was fresh and very tasty. Will visit Lupita again!!
My Mexican friend recommended Lupita to us. They use fresh ingredients and food are very authentic. Staff are very kindly explained their menu, so we could get the right dishes for us. I really recommend this place.
Our server was fantastic!!! Because of her, we will definitely come again.
We had a really lovely meal and the staff were very helpful. I will be coming back again :-)
Menu has changed in recent years but generally still good food. Service was a little lacking as 1 order was forgotten and 2 were delivered incorrectly in a group of 6.
great service and quality of food
An excellent evening with great food and service Would highly recommend and will revisit
Excellent servers. Guacamole was very expensive. Would love to have more sharing platters.
Table of six on a weeknight and couldn't fault the service. Food was tasty, drinks were good but it was mainly the cheery manner and friendliness of the staff that really made our night. Everything arrived in a timely manner. Had a lovely time, would definitely recommend!
Service was extremely welcoming and friendly, but knowledge of ingredients on menu was fairly poor. Guacamole starter was good, fresh and zingy as were drinks (Margarita and a non-alcoholic cocktail.) These were the highlights. The rest of the food was very poor indeed - everything very mushy with no texture whatsoever. The quality of the main course Alambra steak fajitas was extremely poor and shockingly bad value for £14.50. It looked completely inedible. The side of rice was cooked well but had almost no flavour. All the food came within five minutes of ordering. It would have been much nicer to have been served it over a more staggered period. Also the speed at which it came made us doubt it was cooked fresh? The fish taco listed on the menu did not indicate what kind of fish is used. When we asked we were shocked to learn the restaurant uses Pangasius, a very poor quality ingredient.
Love this place! Especially the guacamole prepared at table and the Margaritas. Will be back!
Great food and excellent service.
Probably one of the best Mexican meals we’ve had. Quick, tasty very good thank you
I booked weeks in advance and told my Mexican girlfriend I had booked a nice Mexican restaurant for her to try but when we arrived the restaurant was shut due to a “gas problem” and I wasn’t informed prior to the booking. Very annoyed.
