This Is London

Fay Maschler - 1/5

Thursday, July 29, 2010 - After picking at tiger prawn flautas - I thought that was the effect of re-fried beans - my companion said 'I'm not going to hold this against you'. When we then shared carnitas, described as braised pork shanks with chipotle wine sauce, he added, 'I can't remember a meal this bad.' Even the margaritas seemed phoney. The one star is for the sweet and smiling service from Carole.

The Independent

Tracey MacLeod - 6/15

Saturday, July 24, 2010 - The sheer size of our starters, each vast bowl packed with redundant chopped lettuce and other bulking agents, confirmed that this wasn't going to be an exquisite fine dining experience. Quesadillas stuffed with gooey Oaxaca cheese, mushrooms and caramelised onions offered a flavour experience straight out of Pizza Express. Cilantro chicken salad, made with several kilos of grilled chicken, black beans and avocado, also failed to deliver any of the expected jolts of flavour.

Cheese and Biscuits

Cheese and Biscuits - 5/10

Thursday, July 08, 2010 - None of the food was actively disgusting or cooked badly (apart from the chicken) or even anything less than tasty, it just wasn't worth anywhere near the prices they're charging...If our meal had been half the price, it would just about have been worth it - there's nothing not to enjoy about Mexican cuisine when it's competently cooked and served with a smile. But 80 for two comes with a weight of expectation regarding presentation, ingredients and atmosphere that really wasn't in evidence last night.
