We were welcomed excellently by Macarena who explained everything on the menu and was extremely helpful and friendly! We opted for the market food and had 3 dishes between 2 of us. It was just enough for a light lunch and overall very tasty. The food didn't all come at the same time but this had been explained to us and it was actually quite nice to have each dish individually. There weren't big gaps between the dishes arriving so it felt just right. The food was different to what I'd had in other Mexican restaurants and very nice, seemed reasonably priced too. However the drinks seemed a little overpriced for what they were. I had a lovely Virgin Mohito but it was quite a small serving with way too much ice and a bit expensive!

We visited over the Easter weekend with family for the first time. All the food was really good. The only reason not a 5 as the food all came out in dribs and drabs and we only received a side of sweet potatoes as we were finishing our meal, however the staff were very apologetic and kept us up to date with were the food was up to. This is a nice restaurant tastefully decorated and we will definitely be visiting again.

We're happy that you enjoyed our lovely Mexican treats.

I'm sorry to hear you received your side as you were finishing your meal. Our food does come out as of when it's ready to make sure you get everything piping hot and as fresh as possible. Again, we're sorry the side arrived so late.

We look forward to seeing you again soon!

We called in without a reservation at a busy time for seven of us and we were looked after immediately by the manager, Rafaella. Our server, coincidentally, also called Rafaella, was very helpful and attentive and the food was lovely, particularly the Chorizo quesadillas.
Definitely worth a visit.

Hola askjerryf!

Thank you so much for taking the time to write us such a lovely review! I have shared your beautiful comments with the team & they were all so thrilled that you had such an amazing experience!

I have to agree with you, our chorizo & potato quesadillas are absolutely delicious! Our new specials launch next week, so you should definitely pop in & try those : ) We do always find room for walk ins but if you would like to book a table in the future, drop me a email to manchester@wahaca.co.uk.

Have a lovely weekend & see you again soon!

Came 15th March at around 8:30, not a busy night but our server, can’t remember her name it started with R. She was great but seemed very rushed even tho it wasn’t that busy it was hard to grab her attention for anything as she was running past. Some things were great: salmon taquitos, pork tacos and cocktails were amazing. Special of mock scotch egg was odd and mash was lumpy in it, also chicken wings the skin was wet, they would have been much better deep fried or roasted first to make crispy.it was nice and I’m sure we will come again but am afraid I can’t rave about it
