This restaurant is great. Aaron, the owner, is super friendly and is usually hanging out in the restaurant taking care of people. The chipotle pork tacos are great. The tortillas are handmade at the restaurant, and that makes a really big difference. Most Mexican food in Seoul is much more like Tex-mex, but Gusto Taco is actually really good. Another... More

Was shocked to see a Mexican restaurant as the #1 in Seoul. So glad we decided to give it a try! Food was great. Restaurant was clean. Staff was friendly and informative. And the owner even came out and chatted with our party. The other family in our party later told us they went back a second time during their... More

We visited Gusto Taco with a party of four. When we entered we were greeted by the cashier who explained the menu to us and made recommendations based on guests favorites. I ordered the Chipotle pork tacos, an order of nachos and a mojito my wife ordered the chicken tacos and a tangerine margarita, I do not recall what our... More

Best Mexican I've had in Seoul and one of my favourite restaurants. The food is delicious, always tastes fresh and not drenched in grease as in other Mexican places. I have probably tried everything on the menu by now, I would recommend ordering a variety of dishes, but make sure to try the tacos (the tortillas are home made). Aaron,... More

Okay so when I first visited two months ago the owner had me try the Chipotle pork tacos. They make their own tortillas and everything. I was really excited to try something new and they come two tacos to an order. At first bite I was in heaven and after finishing both along with my delicious frozen margarita, I was... More

The chipotle pork tacos are the best tacos I've ever had! Quesedillas are excellent. Taquitos and nachos are very good. Burritos are ok. Service is usually very good, and the owner is friendly. Been coming since 2012. Always worth the hike to Seoul.

They are very fast in preparing the food that is really tasty and yummy. Unfortunately it's a pleasure that doesn't last long they serve two tacos for each menu ordered but the tacos are quite small.

I witnessed this restaurant grow from a little hole in the wall on a back street of Hongdae. Now with this new fairly new location in Sangsu and another on the way, I am proud to call myself a long-standing patron of Gusto Taco. Food was top notch from the very first visit and has never disappointed with any subsequent... More

Moved to Seoul from the States fairly recently and was relieved to find Gusto Taco. I love tacos and was seriously concerned about where I'd get my fix in Seoul. Gusto Taco satisfies my taco craving every time. The tacos are GREAT! Definitely try the pork. YUM! Added pluses: the staff is friendly, the service is great, and the price... More
