Nice food, very tasty steak & guacamole. In the era of fast-food, this restaurant offers a healthy option & good value for money. Used to go to their Islington branch and compare to that branch, Leadenhall one is very spacious (2 big rooms downstairs & seats upstairs as well). Interesting fact: they've got a chandelier built from beer bottles - pretty shiny! Worth a go.

Recommended by a colleague, turned out to be one of my favourite lunchtime places. Choose from pork, beef and chicken, add beans or peppers with onions and topped it with spicy salsa and fresh guacamole. Quick service too.

I come to Tortilla often for lunch - it's one of my favourites. I've found that the food is consistently good and, for the amount you get, not that expensive. There is often a queue, but it moves relatively quickly (just try and figure out what you want ahead of time!). If you do want to skip the queue, you can order your burrito through their website (it's a bit clunky but it works). This is best if you're making a large order. Most people will take their food away, and I've found that the basement (which really is massive) always has plenty of seating free if you want somewhere quiet to sit and eat.

Visited a couple of days ago. Nice food, pleasant atmosphere, different alcoholic and non-alhocolic drinks. Burritos around £5 - £6 depending on a size and if you take any extras(guac or steak). Liked their pork wrap with black beans and fresh salsa.

Very spacious, good quality of food. Visited with a group of friends and enjoyed our burritos and budweiser. Vegetarian option available.

I used to go to their Southwark branch, but since they've opened this one I'm a regular customer. First of all the food - affordable and I really love the taste of their pork burrito with beans and fresh salsa. Loads of space, especially donwstairs, decor seems cosy - I'm usually coming during the lunchtime, but I think it'd be a nice place to hang out in the evening as well. Very creative idea for their chandeliers - made from recycled bottles of Corona, the one next to the entrance is enormous and really sparkly. Restaurant worth visiting if you're looking for something not too expensive.

Following the successful formula of its four predecessors, Tortilla’s Leadenhall location offers burrito fans the same food they’ve come to expect, with a bit more room to eat it in.

The Venue
Located in picturesque Leadenhall Market, Tortilla is set over three floors. Order your burrito on the ground floor at the assembly line-style counter (be prepared for a queue) and then you can either head upstairs or downstairs to have a seat. The upstairs is mezzanine-like, overlooking the ground floor, but downstairs is surprisingly massive. There’s a warren of rooms that offers plenty of space for customers searching for a seat but it would be equally suited to large parties or events. Decor is cosy, with brick walls and warm woods, and just a touch of Mexican-themed art to be on topic without seeming too cheesy. Look up and you’ll see chandeliers made out of beer bottles.

The Atmosphere
Burritos being the ultimate takeaway food – handily-sized and ready wrapped – many customers choose to head back to their local offices, but if you decide to stay you’ll see the crowd is almost exclusively City folk. Although the queue seems long, it moves fast.

The Food
Tortilla specialises in California-style Mexican food, offering burritos, wraps, salads and tacos with a choice of fillings. A medium burrito is £4.95 and a large is £5.95, but unless you’re not planning on eating the rest of the day the medium is more than enough. When you order, you can choose from a main filling of chicken, pork, a veggie-friendly pepper and onion mix, and steak (an extra 50p). Then choose your rice (lime-cilantro or Mexican), beans (black or pinto), salsa (mild pico de gallo, medium green salsa and hot red salsa), sour cream, cheese and guacamole (an extra 70p).

In terms of fillings, both the pork and chicken are highly recommended, the pork tender and savoury and the chicken with a slight char-grill taste. Both black beans and pinto beans are good, depending on whether you want a slightly creamier (go for the pinto) or fresher (go for the black) taste. The only downside is that, depending on your ingredients, the burrito can be slightly drippy, so make sure you keep the foil on for as long as possible to avoid various juices running down your arm.

The Drink
Soft drinks, juices and water are available by the bottle. Alcohol-wise there’s Budweiser on draft, bottles of Mexican beers, plus frozen margaritas made with silver tequila. Wine is also available and the red works surprisingly well with a pork burrito.

The Last Word
A welcome location to EC3, Tortilla is definitely worth a try – or a return visit.
