I am a regular visitor to The Adobo located in Crown Passage, Mayfair as i work nearby and although the food is great the manager/owner should really consider replacing some of the staff, one in particular who i have noticed continually has a bad attitude on every visit. It's a shame the rudeness of the lady with dark hair on... More

Fast, fresh, you can add whatever you want and also ask not to have some ingredients (so good for fussy eaters like me). Cheap, especially after 5pm. Sometimes the staff are a bit rude though

The food here is grreeeaattt!! You have a choice between brown and white rice, beef, chicken (done 2 ways) and pork. The food tastes fresh and its a great price, I paid around £7 and I was stuffed! I recommend trying the guacamole and definitely get the salsa, they were so fresh and delicious. The food is healthy and there... More

How do Adobo's burritos measure up compared to those in Mexico? I have no idea. But for a fast, reliable lunch in London they are a strong option. Adobo makes claims to be healthy - and some of its ingredients must be (such as the brown rice). But as I tuck into another one of their burritos, with a generous... More

I don't consider myself an expert too often but when it comes to burritos I'm definitely well versed. Given my love for Burritos I’d also think that I’m easy to please, however after 5 minutes (and the finished product) I wanted to headbutt a wall. The staff were incredibly rude, If I’m paying £7+ for my lunch I at least... More

Delicious and very filling - I can never finish a whole one on my own. After 5pm they are only £5. You can chose from beef, pork, chicken (halal) with beans, rice (white or brown), salasa...

Love the burritos from here, massive, delicious fillings, and fried chorizo as an extra is a pure winner. Miss working near here dearly. Big queues, eat out though, it's very small inside

The food here always tastes good. Most of it is quite fresh, though I think the earlier you get there the better, for the cooked food. There isn't much seating, so it's more of a place for a quick snack. The staff are usually friendly. It's a simple, no frills sort of place that is worth going to if you... More
