Mexican food in the UK always seems to be associated with street food where you can have a burrito or tacos and sit in the pub or market .
As delicious as the food is there doesn't seem to be a restaurant which brings a modern take on this type of cuisine ... Until now .

Upon entering into the restaurant you are greeted with a wonderful ,calm environment which relaxes you. The staff are charming and make sure you are comfortable .

The menu is very informative and highlights the difference in Mexican and Peruvian food .

The food can only be described as amazing .

The nachos were wonderful , a different take on your usual starter . The guacamole was devine .

My girlfriend and I tried two types of tacos . Both of them were excellent and we'll presented .

The main courses were astonishing . The ribs were succelent and had a great sweet and spicy taste . The steak was outstanding . The aubergine had a wonderful home made salsa .

The desserts optimized the restaurant with two Innovative , wonderful desserts . Yoghurt with nuts in a raspberry coulis and chocolate balls with pistachio and ice cream .

If you have a predilection for Mexican but want somewhere that is innovative and has a touch of class then this is the place for you .

Try for yourself and enjoy.

We went on a Saturday night. The food was amazing. Very nice cocktails as well. The service was excellent. A big thank you to Silviu, who explained the menu to us. His recommendations on the dishes were perfect based on our preferences, how spicy we like the food, etc. We asked him for recommendations on the drinks as well. And they were spot on. Lovely atmosphere. Highly recommend. Definitely ask for Silviu when go again.

We visited LSK for the first time for my Grandma's 80th birthday. Our waitress was fantastic, she made recommendations where requested but also left us to our own devices - which I like. We had a total of 12 dishes, plus rice, between us and it was enough. We tried something from each section of the menu and every dish was full of flavour. My Grandma had never eaten Mexican or Peruvian food before and she loved every dish!

We also sampled the sorbet and "doughnut" puddings, both were delicious although the doughnuts were more of a choux pastry - still amazing though!

Are here on Friday night as on way to theatre. Had walked through Leicester Square and spotted as some where different. Had never had Peruvian food before and was not disappointed.
Explained to waitress we were in a rush and only had an hour to eat but this was not a problem. She gave us lots of information and tips on what best to eat and avoid as had allergies.
Food was incredible!! All cooked to order. It was all very tasty with lots of citrus flavours mixed with good amounts of spice. Waitress gave us enough time to eat with out feeling rushed. They were all very attentive with fantastic service. Would highly recommend this place. Might be wise to book as was busy but staff managed to fit us in kindly.
