Great food and amazing service.

I went to Gusto Toco for the first time this weekend. Not only was the food amazing, but the owner walked outside with us and gave us directions to the subway station and the one we needed to off at. If you're reading this, you're a life saver. We would have never found our hotel if it wasn't for... read more

As an expat from California, this restaurant was my comfort food haven while living in the Sangsu-Hongdae neighborhood in Seoul. The food is fresh, well seasoned and reasonably priced. Overall a super delicious option. Also, they're pretty heavy handed when it comes to pouring margaritas!

I've been to Gusto Taco twice and neither times was I let down by the quality of the food. The staff is super friendly and helpful, and the food is ready quickly and with quality. I love the venue and the atmosphere is very relaxing and not rushed, which I sometimes feel at other popular Mexican restaurants in Seoul because... More

This place is good, friendly staff and I like the food. My nephew complained that the food is a bit greasy (which I found amusing, considering some of the junk food he loves). I've been there for lunch a few times, it's a good place to bring Korean friends who are curious about Mexican food. It's easily the best Mexican... More

Arrived in this restaurant randomly after a hike. First good point: the whole restaurant is open, and even when you sit inside, you still have the feeling that you are on terrace. Seems like they tried to create a New-York feeling and it worked really well. The service is relaxed with multicultural staff who always take care of you: it... More

If I had a third thumb, it'll also go up to approve this place; it's really that good. That's not just about the food but from the ownership down to the atmosphere. The owner and staff are really kind and makes you feel as if you're family when you're dining. The particular one I visited with friends is located near... More

This is a very cool spot in the very popular Hongdae area - just a few steps outside Exit 2 of Sangsu Station. The tortillas are hand made and the meats are specially prepared - very tasty and a great spot for a meal or a snack while exploring Hongdae.

My wife got a burrito and I got tacos. Both were not properly seasoned and lacking in meat, the tacos were tiny, and the salsa was terrible. We sat at a table for a few minutes before we noticed there was no wait staff, and as soon as we got up someone else took our table. Weird guy. Anyway, the... More

Hi, As a rule I don't respond to reviews, however, my wife and I were deeply saddened that you did not have a good experience and I felt obliged to make a few comments. I believe I remember you and your wife and I am genuinely sorry that we did not make it clear that you order up at the... More

Gusto Taco is an excellent small restaurant a good friend of mine and I stumbled across. The service was fast and friendly, and the cashier spoke excellent English (which was a treat!) The place has a really nice, relaxing atmosphere, and a balcony you can sit on during the warmer months. The food was finished quickly, and was very well... More
