One of the better burritos

I have visited here several times, although a bit pricey the burritos are worth a special visit, the pork is belly pork rather than the usual pulled pork, which adds flavour. Amongst the best burritos.

This place was not what I expected. The whole experience was like grabbing lunch at Subway, but not as fresh or healthy (I have nothing against Subway by the way), with the ingredients in little pots ready for the server to add on, which are all exposed to be coughed on. This also means they are not as hot as... More

Been here a couple of times. Chilango is good but not great - I've had better buritos in London. The main problem is a lack of flavour. The size of the burrito is good, service is ok, but it just lacks the taste that it should. In particular, the salsa was flavourless. The salsa should be packed with taste to... More

Extremely disappointing experience. The counter only had one worker behind it while the others chatted away on the street outside. The girl serving us was rushed and was very stingy with the ingredients. She completely skipped the salsa and I had to ask her to add some and she gave a huff. She then asked 'do you want guacamole?' to... More

I visit this branch regularly on lunch from work. Best burritos in town. Good portions, nice ingredients, quick service. Could be a little cheaper but you pay for quality. Highly recommend for a take away lunch to eat in lincons fields or similar.

Living in Norwich has a downside, having to venture all the way to the capital to experience some of the new tastes on the scene i.e. gourmet burger places, Mexican street food etc. Chilangos is one of those that I have studied from afar, watched and then finally got round to visiting on a recent visit to London. The experience:... More

What a shame! It looked great as it was being made, but my pork burrito was bland, sludgy and full of pieces of fat. It wasn't even cheap. I love burritos and am ever on a search for better and better. This sadly wasn't. When I visited the staff were having problems with the tortillas breaking and were having to... More

Fresh, succulent, and incredibly tasty burritos. Having done a bit of shopping around London burrito outlets, I'd never consider eating anywhere else, this place is something different. The queues, while reminiscent of those for a new ride at Disneyland, are well worth it, and can be avoided by ordering online.

Took out burritos (pork and chicken) and chicken tacos - the burritos tasted good but the tacos were better. Good sized portions and the closest it came to the real deal - which is the food I've had in a couple of Mexican restaurants in Texas. The tortilla chips with salsa were good to have with beer. A pleasant experience... More
