You can get better churros in London. Don’t waste your time. Unfriendly service and not fresh churros. Very disappointed as I was looking forward to try San Gines churros.

This place is amazing, the top dish churros with chocolate is from an other word but the best part is that the chocolate is sweet but not to sweet just perfect. Cool place to take a brake and a lot of things to try.

Even there is a long queu, you do not have to wait so long. The Churro is delicious and the chocolate it is as you like, soft creamy and hot! I love this place. Very good for a desert or after dinner in cold weather.

Buenos días, el error se debió a una errata en la elaboración de la carta en chino. Dicho error no aparece en el resto de idiomas. Fue corregido en cuanto nos lo avisaron. Muchas gracias.

I don't have any nut allergy so probably won't be the best person to answer your query but the staff there is very friendly and would be glad to help you out if you asked them the same. There's plenty of other things to eat... More
