Took a chance on this place, never been before (or knew anyone who had). The food was very tasty and the price seems reasonable for central London, service is very lacking. We were brought the wrong main meals, which the staff realised but never bothered...More

The go-to district for a good time in London, Soho

compelling lineup of cafes, restaurants, pubs, bars,
and clubs. At Soho's core is London's original Red
Light District and the epicenter of the LGBT scene –
and thus the city's hottest nightlife. For shopping
enthusiasts, Soho is not only the home of London's
greatest concentration of boutique shops, but also the

Tucked away in Brewer Street is El Camion, the Soho branch of Ned Conran's - son of Terence - hip Mexican restaurant that is famous for its huge burritos and devilish cocktail list. This very central location combined with an interior that is all at once both dark and sleek, and kitsch and colourful, El Camion is the perfect venue for dates, pre-theatre bites, late night feasts and birthday parties. Decorated with brightly coloured tablecloths, flowers and a wall display of kooky hot sauces, El Camion is filled with quirky charm but the menu is classically Mexican with all of your favourites from tacos and quesadillas to salads and ice-cold Mexican beers thrown in for good measure. We operate a hour and a half turn time on all restaurant tables and please keep in mind that we also serve a slightly reduced menu nightly after 10:45pm
