Chimichanga Mexican restaurant in Ealing

Updated on November 16, 2012

Rating for Chimichanga in Ealing

3 stars for Chimichanga

Chimichanga Mexican restaurant in Ealing offers food from Latin America. It is situated in Ealing, west London, and the eatery opened in the Autumn of 2012.

The restaurant offers a variety of popular Mexican dishes such as fajitas, burritos and enchiladas. Piri piri chicken is also on the menu, and there are a small selection of salads, potato side orders, nachos and olives.

The food at Chimichangas - which is part of a chain of Mexican restaurants - is typical Mexican dishes that are some of the most popular from Latin America. It is not particularly adventurous Mexican food, but it is tasty and ticks all the boxes. Basically, there's not a great deal wrong with it but it doesn't set the taste buds alight and the stomach doing cartwheels.

On my first visit I had the chicken fajitas while my partner had the steak fajitas. There were plenty of dips - sour cream, salsa and guacamole, but we did run a little low on the tortilla wraps. For the price of the meal, which was £14.50 for each dish, I felt they could have been bit more generous with the portions or thrown in a side of potato wedges for that price.

The staff were friendly and attentive. The place had only been open a few weeks when we visited so they were obviously still keen to impress. It seemed like the owners were working on the restaurant floor and serving people. There were also a few waitresses. For a mid-week night, the restaurant was really busy, which was quite surprising - I didn't realise just how many people were in to Mexican food!

Inside the restaurant, the decor is clean and stylish. It is decorated with a Mexican theme with various Aztec style wood carvings. However, from the outside the black wood frames of the shop window are a little off-putting. In fact, I probably would have went there earlier but I thought it all seemed 'a bit dark'. Nevertheless, once inside the restaurant there isn't much black decoration so it's all good.

The only one point, and there might have been little that the Mexican restaurant owners could have done about this owing to the design of the building, is that the toilets are up two flights of steps. It felt like walking up Everest to reach them... and that was before eating so goodness knows what it's like after a hefty meal and a few Tequilas (yes, alcohol is served there). There is also a confusing system of 'multisex' room and individual cubicles for the sexes. There was a bizarre moment when I was washing my hands and a woman came in and neither of us were quite sure who was in the wrong bathroom!

Overall, Chimichangas in Ealing is well worth a visit for anyone living in the area. There seems to be quite a few people who stop off for quick snacks. But for me personally, it's more like a restaurant that I would go to maybe once every few months.
