I visted Boojum on Saturday afternoon after hearing all the rave reviews. Staff seemed to be friendly enough and I ordered the pulled pork. It was rather tasteless. The bread had gone very soggy and the rice seemed quite mushy in texture, like it was overcooked. It didn't seem to be anymore impressive than a late night kebab, in fact... More

My partner is from Belfast and every time we go back to visit we ALWAYS get a Boojum. This place ticks all the boxes in terms of value for money, taste, quality and enjoyment. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Boojum to anyone and I really do they think would make a fortune if they opened up more restaurants right across... More

I am not too familiar with the Mexican kitchen, but Boojum's burrito's are absolutely my favorite in Belfast. The prices are reasonable, and their portions are just massive. One boojum, and I have eaten for one entire day. Or more. Pity that, because they are so popular, they can just close whenever they want. Last week (or was it the... More

I've been here a few times to know that the queue is absolutely crazy at lunchtimes so I opted for an early lunch when I was in the city for work. Had the veggie burrito and wasn't disappointed at all, it was so big that I only managed half of it and left very very stuffed. Love the fact you... More

After listening to colleagues raving about this place I felt like I needed to try it. We headed round and the queue was out the door so I thought that this place would be amazing. How wrong was I??? To begin with, I was overcharged, however I didn't realise this until I returned to work and checked the change in... More

Hi there, Thanks for getting in touch about your recent boojum experience. It doesn't sound like it was a great one so I was wondering if you could email emma@boojummex.com with some more information about exactly what you got in your burrito? Bland and flavourless are not normally the feedback we receive so perhaps something went wrong with your burrito... More

This place offers you good mexican food for cheap prices. you have a different variety of choice and you can build your own plate by yourself. expect long queue every day at every time, since this place is very popular in Belfast.

Good,food, however they unfortunately don't take debit or credit cards and there isn't an ATM all that close. I don't really tend to carry very much cash around with me, so it is an inconvenience that way. I suppose it allows people to be served quicker, etc., but once or twice I have gone there and had to turn back... More
