The restaurant is a small but very nicely decorated. The value for money is more than excellent. We had a beef burrito for 9€ and it was very very tasty. This is a very good option if need something quick and delicious to fill you up (dishes are quite large). Just don't hesitate with salsas, they are quite mild.

We will come back for sure :)

A nice little Mexican restaurant in Turku. It's got a pretty good atmosphere with a tacografia map of Mexico and a few other things in Spanish.

It's just like a Chipotle for anyone who has eaten there in the states. You go through lone picking a burrito, salad, tacos, or burrito bowl and then get rice, beans and your selection of meat and then salsas. Tastes pretty good.

Not quite as good as chipotle but for being so far from the states it's actually prett good. The guacamole had a but too much yogurt and was not authentic, but the pico de gallo was as authentic as it gets with fresh jalapeños and cilantro. Had the chicken burrito and the chicken was a little dry and bland, but the salsas helped.

Overall for a guy from New Mexico who is pretty picky about Mexican style food I give it a 3 on the food, but the staff was super friendly and helpful and the atmosphere was kind if cool. So a four in all.

Taco Nito is right in the heart of the city, but you might easily walk past without noticing it, since the premises are really small and the lines in lunchtime don't reach the pavement (yet). But make the best decision of your day and go find it! Like all great chefs always say, a small menu is better than hundreds of choices, and in Taco Nito even choosing between tacos and a burrito can be a hard task. Everything's freshly made, flavours are pure and the shredded meats are really tasty unlike the industrially produced mince you usually get in Finnish restaurants. Every dish is prepared right under your eyes and do note that it is ok to choose different meat and even different sauce to each of the 3 tacos. An authentic experience that leaves every single "Mexican" restaurant in town to its small but hopefully growing shadow!
The only reason I'm only giving the place a 4 star rating is that I'd love a wheat-free burrito, but besides the corn-based tacos I'm stuck with a burrito platter (i.e. dish w/o the tortilla). Not bad, not at all, but please turn the small taco into a large tortilla and you'll lure in coeliacs and low-carb enthusiasts...

Excellent authentic Mexican fast food made of fresh ingredients. Fresh tomato salsa, guacamole and jalopeno sauces made in-house etc. Home made feeling. This is totally different from any other Mexican or Tex Mex places I've experienced in Europe.

There are a few tables inside and also some outside tables during summer time. Takeaway is available, too.

My recommendation: Beef burrito, a big portion and absolutely wonderful tastes.

I hope this develops into a chain. I see opportunities here.

I visited this new restaurant last weekend. I ordered chiken burrito. It included wheat tortilla, rice, beans, pulled chiken, sour cream, quacamole and salsa. Burrito tasted the same I had in California and was made by real mexicans. Location of the restaurant is great (Aurakatu). It is in the middle of the city. This is good option for nigth time foor. The food is not so greasy then kebab or pizza.
