Description

The Mexican market food maestros that are Wahaca can be found in Manchester's Corn Exchange for tacos and Margarita talk a-plenty.

Undergoing a huge renovation project, the Grade II listed Triangle building has become an emporium for all things food and drink. Enter Wahaca. Expanding on their mammoth London success, the vibrant Mexican brand has brought its fresh flavours and big tasting tacos to the North with quirky interiors and beloved plates galore.

Champions of the Mexican morsels, this joint is known for plating up a menu of traditional street food fare, authentic small plates to the munching of burritos, tacos and quesadillas as well as plenty of big plate favourites for a real feasting session. But, this would be no Hispanic hot spot without a cheeky selection of Tequila tipples and Mezcal mixers, which come in abundance at Wahaca.

Had a lovely meal - delicious food, inventive and well presented. The restaurant was busy and the service was slow initially. After a making the the waitress aware we'd been waiting the food came quickly and some complementary tequila tasters were provided. Overall, had a good time and would come back. Did I mention it was a 21st meal? visited Wahaca Manchester on 03 Mar 2017

The food was excellent. My wife, who's Mexican, thought the tastes were as close to the real thing as she's had in this country. The only downside was the children's meals being served long after ours, so much so that our son, aged 2, feel asleep and couldn't even eat his when it eventually did arrive. visited Wahaca Manchester on 25 Feb 2017

Terrible service decided not to even bother staying as the staff were so rude didn't acknowledge us until 5 mins of walking in the restaurant and gave us a bad table despite having a booking. There were other tables free yet when I asked if we could move told there were no other tables. Went to pho next door where the service was friendly and welcoming despite them being very busy and us not having a booking. visited Wahaca Manchester on 17 Feb 2017

We were unable to stay for our reservation because you do not fry your vegetarian dishes separately from meat and fish and the majority of my party was vegetarian. This was very disappointing given that your menu states that these dishes are suitable for vegetarians and they are not. Unfortunately, we wouldn't be able to visit again. visited Wahaca Manchester on 18 Feb 2017

We had dinner on at 20:00 at Wahaca and were sat at the bottom of stairs near the the kitchen. I have to say all four of us were extremely disappointed with the experience. We had been sat at the table for 15 minutes before anyone even came to offer us drinks. We found the waitress to be unwelcoming and unfriendly. I don't think she managed a smile the whole time she served us. On top of that two of us ordered burritos and both of them arrived cold. This is the second time we have eaten at Wahaca in Manchester. The first time we had an enjoyable experience and good food. Unfortunately after our experience on Friday we will not be coming back. visited Wahaca Manchester on 10 Feb 2017

We wanted to try something new for my husband's birthday so decided to book Wahaca. We were a large group with various tricky dietary requirements and the staff were fantastic from start to finish, accommodating all our requests without hesitation and with a smile. The food was fabulous and mixed with the great service it made for a really enjoyable experience. Will definitely be back. visited Wahaca Manchester on 04 Feb 2017

Overall was left feeling slightly disappointed with the evening. Drinks were slow to appear every time we ordered and we had to ask repeatedly for drinks missing from the order. Similarly with the food; I know it comes out as it's prepared, but two of our meals were delivered after the other four of us had finished eating. Will probably avoid Wahaca in future. visited Wahaca Manchester on 04 Feb 2017

We had a group booking which after recommendation thought it would be best to preorder the food. We did this then after a considerable time the waitresses wanted to check everyones order was correct.. It then took a considerable amount of time again for the food to be actually served to the table by which time people were getting hungry and ended up ordering more drinks which they didnt really want to do. Food was ok but the service wasnt that great. visited Wahaca Manchester on 03 Feb 2017

The food was great, so tasty! I think when we arrived, it was at the busiest point of the evening, and our waitress and the bar staff could have done with a hand - they were dealing with everyone single handed and doing their best. visited Wahaca Manchester on 21 Jan 2017

Having been to wahaca many times before I was really disappointed. A group of 6 of us went for my birthday and all being busy mums we don't get out much so this was a treat. From the start the waitress serving us was rude. 3 times the wrong food came out. It took nearly an hour to actually order anything and everything we asked seemed a bother to her. The food as always was wonderful but the service has really put me off returning visited Wahaca Manchester on 21 Jan 2017

A table for 4. Two on street food, two on burritos. Service excellent, food perfect. Only criticism is that I never leave enough room for churros. If you haven't been to Wahaca, make sure you have Pork Pible tacos and Frijoles (with Chorizo) as a minimum visited Wahaca Manchester on 07 Jan 2017

We had a lovely night at Wahaca. All of the staff were wonderful. Gaz our server was very friendly and fast with our service. We were early but we still got seated. Our food was gorgeous. I had the steak and it's by far the best I've had in a long time. I had the churros for desert. They came with cinnamon on which I'm allergic too and they were very apologetic and made me a new batch very quickly. I've never been before but I will be returning and I will tell my friends about the wonderful time I had there. Thanks again. Happy new year. visited Wahaca Manchester on 31 Dec 2016

Eaten at Wahaca before so decidd to go again. Me, my partner and my 2 friends had are Christmas meal together, We had the festive menu and my friends the regular menu. We ordered are food as normal, first we had the starters, we werent too sure what we were given to be honest but it was good, then we started to be given the same food again and said we already had that, then it happened later on as well. The food was delicious just wasn't sure what we got or even if we got off the same christmas menu. The lady that served us Siobhan was brilliant as apologiesd about the nuisance and she offered us free tequila and also gave us are christmas menu free!! We weren't expecting that at all!! I was happy with the tequila to be honest. Just wanted to let you know how lovely the meal was and thanks again! We werent expecting this kind of service. Great job will definately be visiting again!! visited Wahaca Manchester on 17 Dec 2016
