This mexican is not authentic and has poor flavours, all the tacos had the same boring seasoning which was subtle even when ordering the spicy options. The meat was dry and the waitress added cheese and extras to the tacos we didnt even order making...More

The meat in the tacos was dry and tasteless, the queso fundido straight out of the microwave and both of us felt sick within 20 minutes of eating. The 'spicy' salsa had no kick to it and don't bother asking for cheese and paying 1.25...More

I enjoy Mexican food and the offerings on London are few and far between. While having a Mexican restaurant on Kensington High Street is a welcome addition to the area Lupita is not something to get excited about. The waitress didn’t really acknowledge us and...More

What a rip off for bland slop of microscopic proportions! Never bother writing reviews but want to warn others. Asked waitress to recommend something substantial as hungry but pointed me to a dish that was barely a starter, let alone a main and so bland,...More

Happy with my meal, burrito cochinita pibil, which was very nice and would recommend I wouldn’t describe the food as outstanding but for the price and speed it was more than acceptable

We came 2 families to this very neat and tidy restaurant not knowing anything about it. Food was very good. Service was excellent 👍🏻

Food was decidedly average .. bordering on not great. Certainly not the vibrant and fresh food that I associate with Mexican. Suggest you can do much better

Loved the food here. Great music, great service. Laid back. When you come here be sure to come here when you’re not in a hurry. Loved it. Had the chicken Tinga quesadilla and the Taquitos. Really awesome.

I'm currently on vacation, and have made it a goal to find Mexican food in as many cities as I can. So far, I've had Mexican in Glasgow, London, and Paris, and Lupita is the best of the 3. I am Mexican-American from Southern California,...More

South Kensington
With its ivied mews, row upon row of Poppins-esque
white washed mansions, and placid garden squares, it's
easy to see the charms of South Kensington. And with
superb access to Hyde Park, Holland Park and
Kensington Gardens, as well as the largely
child-friendly and mostly free Museum Quarter (not to
mention more major attractions like Royal Albert Hall)
such charms are easy to make the most of. As welcoming
