The ambiance and interior was great, certainly what i would expect of a restaurant in London; the cocktails looked and tasted amazing however the food was a massive let down. To really improve, Boho Mexica needs to make fresh authentic food in line with its feel and ambiance. The Empanadas where over cooked and tasteless and the Enchilladas tasted like a freezer meal. Not good! The restaurant definitely has potential- shame about the food!
Amazing food & ambience. Authentic Mexican. Absolute perfection!! x
Been here a couple of times and will keep going back. Food is good with a wide menu so everyone can eat here! Service is lovely and really enjoy it here
We had a big lunch party. The service was great as we were the only people in the restaurant. Whilst the menu was limited, the chef did make an effort for the vegetarians in our group.
Delicious food and good value for money!
I took my brother here who was visiting for a couple of days. Really good nibbles and loved the pork tacos. The waitress was great and didn't push us to order more than was necessary. The bar staff was friendly and fast, loved my margarita. It gets a bit loud when the small rooms get busy, but that is expected.
Table for two on busy Fri night. Main course partially delivered as waitress didn't listen carefully. Table next door told service wasn't included and tipped again when it clearly is included by default.
We went to Boho Mexican on a friend's recommendation and were not disappointed. It was very busy but the staff were calm, efficient and friendly. We loved our food and cocktails - the black bean sauce with the pork and the fish ceviche were big winners.
My friend and I usually head to Lupita as it is in the same area but decided we wanted a change - so when here! We won't be going back.
The margaritas were fab but even they did not remove the cramped conditions in the restaurant we were basically sitting on the laps of our neighbouring diners which may be good for the restaurant is not conducive for a nice Friday night dinner. It wasn't great that when I say down they said to let you know you have 90 minutes. I managed to go up to two hours but 90 minutes - you are having a laugh.
The food was ok but nothing special and my vegetation friend was a little underwhelmed.
A change is as good as a rest but it just means we will be Lupita-philes moving forward.
Good food, great drinks and service. This is our new place for Mexican food.
Took a couple of friends to this restaurant last weekend. We waited over an hour for our mains to arive and were pretty disappointed when it did. My pork quesadillas were just awful - full of greasy cheese - my plate was full of oil! I will not be returning.
Awesome food. Couldn't be better Mexican food!
Food was very good, the place is very nice and cool, but the service was awful. We talked to the manager and he didn't even care about it. That summarizes all of the experience. I would not recommend this place.
One of few actual mexican restaurants in shoreditch area after few closed down nearby. Like the fact that most plates are quite small so ideal for sharing and their margaritas are very good as well. Recommended for small groups of friends or dates...
Guacamole with Taco Chips was much too salty, made it inedible. Other food was nice but not much for the money. Service was a bit all over the place. Never brought back the drinks menu we asked for, so we had our Cocktail in that quirky pub across the road instead.
The food was ok the service was bad the place was too cramped up unnecessarily so as the tables should be a bit more spread out ! I felt like a sardine ! There is a fine line between profit and descency I think
Loud and lively atmosphere on arrival. Turned out you couldn't hear the person sat directly opposite. A confusing arrangement of all passing waiting staff individually trying to serve you and blatantly trying to up-sell at every individual encounter. Drinks were brought promptly. Food arrived almost immediately. As did the bill. A whirlwind. We got the impression it was more business than pleasure.
We are big fans of authentic Mexican cuisine and run a mile from formulaic TexMex fare so we were delighted to come across Boho Mexica. The restaurant is quirkily decorated and the upbeat but relaxed vibe welcomes you as soon as you walk in. The menu is compact but full of enticing dishes with traditional Mexican ingredients, while the drinks menu offers an array of mouth-watering margaritas, mojitos, caipirinhas etc. Our waitress was perhaps a little over-eager and there was some confusion with our bill but all was sorted out with good grace. Definitely a spot to return to, if only to try the things we didn't manage to sample on both the food and cocktail menus.
Best Mexican food in London - margaritas and fish tacos ....
I always look forward to visiting Boho. The food is great, from start to finish (make sure to leave room for the desserts!). Most recently, even though I only was in London for 2 days, I made a point of having dinner at Boho.
The service is warm and friendly, the menu is consistent. What more could you ask for in a restaurant?
We went to Boho for a friends birthday, its a very strange shape and layout for restaurant but its quirky, I like the décor and the oddness of the furniture. The staff were all great - welcomed within seconds of arriving and were well looked after throughout. food was of good quality and as I was dining with a Mexican and he gave his approval it must have been authentic too! quite good value for money, not a cheap meal but you get what you pay for.
I'd read about this place on the nudge and was keen to try it out as I'm yet to find a great Mexican in London. I was really glad I did! The food was a little unusual (ordered enchiladas and rice came as a side) but it was interesting and absolutely delicious - we will definitely be going back.
We enjoyed a really lovely meal here, the waitress we had was really lovely, never letting our glasses go empty but not buzzing around us continuously, she managed to get the balance perfectly right. The food was authentic and delicious, although the enchiladas I wouldn't order again, a bit bland. We would definatly return!
The food I ordered at Boho Mexica was quite disappointing. Mexican cuisine is my favourite, especially enchiladas, which I ordered from the menu and was disappointed to find the dish to be very underwhelming. High marks to the restaurant for using authentic corn tortillas, but I've never been served a dish as plain as those enchiladas. The plate consisted of lightly spiced shredded chicken wrapped in tortillas and covered in tomato sauce. Very underwhelming. My friend commented I was served "Mexican caneloni." I make Mexican food at home often and I know that there are so many ways to make enchiladas exciting and delicious, which unfortunately the ones I got at Boho Mexica were not. I would expect more imagination from a restaurant priding itself on making good Mexican food. I have to say that authenticity wasn't necessarily an issue, I was very pleased to see the restaurant uses real corn tortillas and ingredients sourced from Mexico. However the recipe for enchiladas was not imaginative at all. I don't come to London often and our visit to Boho Mexica was expected to be a treat; I can't speak for my friends, who ordered different things from the menu, but my meal ended up being something I could make in my own kitchen.
The place has a lively atmosphere (though this does mean that it is pretty cramped and noisy) but the food is truly awful. Soggy starter and a main with sauce that came straight from a jar. Would not recommend
The food was great - one of the tastiest meals I've had in ages. Good margaritas and friendly service from our run-off-her-feet waitress. Only slight off moment was the guy (owner? manager?) who, after we'd been seated, demanded to know if we had a reservation, like he didn't believe us, then slammed down the window blind - we were obviously not picturesque enough for the window!
With much sadness I learnt of this lovely restaurants closure so sad .
Good cocktails, great guacamole and fantastic starters. Wonderful atmosphere. Service was solid.
The mains, however, were just disappointing. Ok at best and not good value.
I'd go back for drinks and some nibbles, but wouldn't go back for dinner again.
Great choice of flavoursome food and tasty cocktails!
The food was delicious and as a vegetarian there was a lot of options. The tables are a bit close however the atmosphere really makes up for it! So friendly and welcoming, really comfortable and we felt like we could spend all evening there. In addition the food is fantastic value for money, perfect on a student budget! Both our waitress and the overall service was brilliant. Need to book a table before as it's obviously a popular place.
