Great experience. There is a dedicated menu and a wide range of choices. The staff seems also clued up which is always good.

Gluten free menu was very extensive and very helpful. It differentiated food that could be eaten by celiacs and by people with gluten intolerances. We were waited on and served by the manager. Truly delicious food. I would definitely come back here again

Very knowledgeable staff and the managers were super helpful. I was happy to find overlaps between their GF and Vegan menus.

The food was good (guac and GF tortilla chips, Mexico Bowl, & raspberry sorbet) and the space has cool decor. Portions are small but prices are fair.

I was slightly gassy so I’m not sure if it was CC related or something else. However, they are aware and make all efforts but do admit they cannot make any guarantees.

This place does a great job of assuring celiacs get a safe and delicious meal. There is a separate GF menu with plenty of options, and the staff are very knowledgeable about celiacs disease and proper cross-contamination procedures. They even ask up front when you request a GF menu if you are celiac and the food comes with a little flag in it, denoting it as gluten free. I ate here several times while visiting London and felt confident in the safety of the food, making it easier to relax and enjoy the fun vibe in the restaurant. Would definitely recommend!

I was in London on a business trip and used the internet to find me a place to eat that had gluten free options, and Wahaca came up. The enchiladas were actually quite good, the rice & beans were pretty mediocre, and the service was a little... distant. My colleague and I waited a good 3-5 minutes at the host stand for someone to come seat us while three employees stared at us from the bar. We had walked pretty far to get to this place or we would have just turned around and left.

very attentive staff who understand food allergies. well documented allergen list and dedicated gf menu. They also acknowledge there are those who simply prefer to avoid gluten and offer them a menu where small risks of cross-contamination may occur. The strict GF menu is excellent and have me confidence I could eat here safely.

Loads of options, staff ask whether you’re coeliac or intolerant and advise accordingly. Gluten free orders dealt with directly by manager and arrive with a purple flag on. Good margaritas too! Great for large groups.
