Having never eaten at a takeaway mexican before I was very happy with my meal. You watch them make the food infront of you, a very 'Subway,' -like experience, and I can't praise them enough. The food was beautiful, hot and prepared fast, perfect for the hungry shopper or (as on the next table to us) the hungover student.

Easily the worst take-away experience EVER - delivered over an hour and a half late. The driver had got lost - incompetent! On arrival, the food was cold, bland and all-round disappointing. I would strongly advise against ordering take-out from them - my housemate is experiencing the same unreasonable delay right now - which prompted me to write this review.... More

My quesadilla contained more gristle and fat than actual meat; when we were queuing to pay we were practically pressed against the wall in the tiny hallway; and when we finally did pay we were charged for the people in front of us' meal. There are far better, tastier places to eat in cambridge, don't waste your time here!

The food at Nanna Mexico is reliably great - I'd particularly recommend the lamb barbacoa, and the guacamole is perhaps the best I've ever had. The horchata is also definitely worth a try!

Last night had stale chips, indifferent salsa, and ok burritto - soggy. A shame, because they used to have reasonably priced good food. Not so much now.

The Big A** Burrito was lovely. Good for fast food without having to stoop to MaccieD's. A little pricey, but worth it. (2 burritos and 2 bottles of pop for £18)

Just to be clear, I'm talking about their new branch just outside the Grand Arcade (ex Lion Yard), as I've never been inside the one on Regent street. I also know their food, as I regularly order take away from their food van that travels all over Cambridge during the week. Nanna Mexico have very tasty, yummy Mexican food, much... More

I've looked at this little place a few times since it opened in The Grande Arcade and though I quite fancied it - but not gone in opting for my usual Yo Sushi. Last week though my husband and I tried it. . . and it was FABULOUS! I don't know much about 'authentic Mexican' so can't comment about that,... More

There are 2 Nanna Mexicos in Cambridge. We started going to the Regent Street and have also been going to the one in the center of Cambridge. Always friendly and fast counter service - we've eaten in and taken out. I always order the carnitas and my husband the beef. The meat is almost always tender, moist, juicy and tasty.... More
