Came with a big group for a business meal. The place has a cool vibe with a lot of activity. The small plates format was perfect and everyone could try some Mexican and Peruvian options. Super easy to get to. We will definitely be back.

Briefed the staff we were going to the Theatre and we had an hour and half. Courses for the 4 of us arrived in a jumble with some members having nothing on their plate for 20 mins. The last course for someone arrived as we were paying the Bill. Margaritas arrived with no ice. The whole experience was chaotic with no communication between staff and kitchen. Constantly chasing staff to where individual course selections were. Would not recommend this experience to anyone who wishes a calming experience. Staff were eager to remove items from the table rather than to deliver food. Overall well overpriced for drinks and food.

Service was excellent but the food wasn't anything especial for me. I mean the ingredients were nice and fresh but the overall taste was OK nothing really wowed me.The taco portions were tiny but the other plates were a good size. We had a nice little surprise at the end as it was a special day for us which was a nice touch!

As a group of 11 women celebrating a Hen Do meal the LSK was a great venue. Everybody enjoyed the selection of tapas and small dishes that were served, the staff were very friendly and attentive. We were shocked at how reasonably priced it all was and will certainly be back again.

Intrusive service, we were not served all of the food we had ordered on time even though we were clear about what time we must leave from the start, and we were still charged for all the food and "discreationary" service charge despite our protests and no response to my follow up complaint. She we asked to put the food we did not get in a doggy bad we got a snappy response that they were not a take-away. Food was decent but I can see why the place was basically empty.

Great food with a good variety of options available on the pre theatre menu. We particularly enjoyed the starters and dessert. The restaurant ambiance is good too - very stylish and service was friendly and attentive. Much more classy than you would usually find in leicester Square. Not the best value pre theatre menu but the food was so good, would still recommend

Really lemony food, everything tasted of lemon from the chicken, to the vegetables to the lamb!
Had to send the lamb back as it was ridiculously expensive but begrudgingly didn’t send the other food back as that would have been rude. Having been to various of their sister restaurants, I was shocked!

Visited for my daughter's 21st, we all really enjoyed the whole experience, and the service was first class.

They even brought my daughter a birthday desert which was a lovely touch.

Would recommend for something a bit different and for a celebration.

Wonderful meal. We are from the set menu and had dishes that we would not normally try but so pleased that we did. Stand out dishes were the duck and pomegranate salad, stone bass, matchstick chicken with VERY hot habanero sauce and the firecracker prawns. Look forward to coming back again one day

It’s in Leicester Sq, so expectations weren’t high, but the menu of South American tapas is absolutely delicious. It’s not cheap, but the service is great

In the past, Leicester Square was not known for its culinary experience. Here comes a fantastic restaurant which was a very pleasant surprise. The food was delicious and the service quick and polite. We'll be coming back to try the rest of the menu. Thank you for a great meal!

Having lived in Mexico for 3 months I can say this is not authentic mexican food and the prices are extremely high for the small portions you get! The food is nice but nothing amazing and given there is no authenticity I cannot really recommend going there if it is Mexican food you are after!

Wonderful restaurant!
We visited on Thursday 15th August at 10:45pm.
I booked very last minute and late in the evening. It was our wedding anniversary and we’d just been out so it was a last minute chance find.
Absolutely loved the food and service.
Our honeymoon 10yrs ago was in Mexico, so it was appropriate to have Mexican meal!
Kitti was our waitress and she was lovely, efficient and couldn’t do enough for us. She is a total credit to your restaurant. So friendly & good at her job. Thank you Kitti!
The food was delicious and everything was explained before we ordered.
We had some small plates, sides and tacos, all delicious. Our favourite was the duck salad.
The chicken & cashews salad was nice, but the chilli lime dressing was very strong for me. Still, it was good.
The cost was as expected and although a little above our budget it was good value for everything we had.
Such a lovely meal with great service and a warm atmosphere.
Thank you!!!

We were looked after very well by all of our servers.
Before ordering we made it clear that we weren't keen on very spicy foods - the servers were great at guiding us through the menu and ensuring the dishes we eat were suitable.
The food was delicious as always and presented beautifully.

Took my Friend for a birthday meal and we were pleasantly surprised by the decor and overall feel of the restaurant. Our waiter was great, so helpful and attentive (without being overbearing). We ordered quite a bit of food, which between us came to £65 and was very filling. Would definitely go again.

We thoroughly enjoyed our meal at Leicester Square Kitchen! Our servers Gaetano and Kitti provided exceptional service, including recommending dishes and cocktails to try based on our personal preferences, and all of the food and drinks were delicious! We especially enjoyed the beef tartare tacos and the smoked tuna tostadas. The small plates enabled us to try many things and share between two of us. We will absolutely visit again the next time we are in London!
