“Decent tacos”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 June 2014

The store has a surprisingly good environment for a quick dinner, but for a fast food restaurant I feel the tacos, whilst decent, are just slightly more pricey than I would like.

“Average. Nothing really amazed me.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 June 2014

Hi there,

Please understand before you read this review that I sell Mexican Food for a living so I may be snobby.

On arrival, the girl serving seemed quite flustered as it was busy. And the processes looked like they could be improved as everyone was getting in each others way.

Anyway, we ordered 'Real Nachos', Beef Tacos and a Chicken Burrito.

The Nachos were good and tasty, especially with the pork. However, I am unsure what was 'Real' about them. The salsa was very tasty too.

The chicken burrito was quite bland and I would suggest that more spice needs adding to more of the items. The chicken and rice (the main components) had no spice within. It seemed they were relying completely on the added sauce for taste. However, it was quite nice, it just didn't tantalise the taste buds. Also, salsa and sour cream cost extra which is a pet hate of mine.

The beef tacos weren't great to be honest. We were expecting beef chunks but were provided with mince beef cooked with coriander. The mince had not been strained so we had quite a soggy wrap. Also, all of the food tasted strongly of coriander. So I hope you like it.

Final note- the door was slamming quite violently and was rather annoying while eating.

On a positive note, we walked in, got 2 meals and a side for £20 and walked out within 20 mins. So if you want a decent meal which quickly. This is great.

To be honest, they seemed to be very busy and looking at other reviews, the quality may have suffered slightly on this day. I'm sure it would have been a lot better on another day.

“Good value food Central Cambridge ”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 31 May 2014 via mobile

We've had Nanna Mexico takeaway before and the new food bar near the Lion Yard is as good as ever. My wife is vegetarian and gluten intolerant but no problems and the food was really delicious. Great value for 2 as well, especially for eat-in in Central Cambridge.

“Great veggie tacos”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 May 2014

As a veggie family there is something for everyone here. I like bean tacos with soft corn tortillas. The beans are not as good as I make myself, but they are good. Much nicer than any of the so called tex mex places around here. The prices are fab too

“Overall fantastic”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 May 2014

Went to the new restaurant on Petty Cury and was very impressed. The food tasted amazing and the staff were very friendly. It is great value for money. I can't wait to go back and try other things from the menu.
