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

The venue in Petty Cury is new and very nicely styled, but this is the same owner and food as the Nana Mexico in Regent Street (and also a few vans that circulate around Cambridge) which has been catering successfully several years. Both restaurants are fairly simple, but very clean and pleasant. Service is at the entrance, and the staff... More

Had lunch here with my wife on a recent visit to Cambridge. This is a great little cantina style restaurant with lunch menu of tacos, quesadillas, burritos made in front of you, for take away or eating in. Nice fresh ingredients and lovely flavour. Great alternative tio the usual chains.

Not sure how long this has been here, only noticed it for the first time today. Quite a small frontage so it is easy to miss. The food was really good I had a burrito and my wife had tacos. There is a good variety of fillings to suit the meat eaters and the veggies among us. For some quick... More

I enjoyed lunch here during a recent weekend city break to Cambridge with my husband. Nanna Mexico provided everything we wanted for a laid back, quick bite to eat. Two lunches, 1 beer & 1 soft drink came to just £17, great value!

I used to love this place for quick, nice Mexican street-food, even if the food isn't altogether authentic for purists. I went to get a takeaway burrito bowl there just now after a gap of time. The food is terrible: the rice is half-cooked, stale and refried to liven it up - floating in oil. The carnitas are stale and... More

I ordered a delivery burrito and I can truly say it was the worst takeaway I have every eaten. This is not Mexican food, the burrito was dry and tasteless with little to no seasoning. Mexican food it meant to be bright, light and tasty - this was plain boring. To top it all it took two hours to deliver... More

Quick service, good food. It's hard to find decent Mexican food in Cambridge but this place does a nice job! I was reluctant to try because it always looks impossibly crowded but they have a big room upstairs with extra seating.
