I went with teenage children for lunch. Staff is extremely helpful and friendly and the food had reasonable prices and huge variety. Everything was delicious and we will certainly come again!

Looks fab, sounds fab but too busy and chaotic. Feeling of being rushed and no relaxed chilled out feel at all

We have always enjoyed Las Iguanas. Started going to the one in Bath and was really pleased that one came to Reading. Recommend XinXim or Blazing Chicken.

Walk through the doors of Las Iguanas and find yourself transported to Latin America, full of rich, vibrant colours, quirky features and custom-made wooden mosaic tables made especially for the restaurant from sustainable woods in Brazil. Each restaurant is unique and the staff love bringing unusual things back from their travels, ranging from large lobster sculptures to giant drums. The philosophy of Las Iguanas is to serve delicious and authentic Latin American food and drink in an environment which evokes the very best of Latin life. With recipes dating back to the 16th century, the food successfully fuses native Latin American Indian, Spanish, Portuguese and African influences. Working hard to ensure that everything comes from the best possible source, Las Iguanas is proud of its fresh GM free food and top quality ingredients.
