yummy but could be improved

like said before, after a certain time you have to order a set and a drink, which is unfortunate due to the price of the items.

however, the tacos were really good and the tortilla was homemade and delicious.

the burritos were also tasty and filling, with tofu skin as a great addition. i wasn’t a fan of the plain veggie one, as it left a bit to be desired with not enough beans and not a large variety of veg.

the drinks that i tried (lemonade and limeade) were good, but i would just prefer water.

i also wish they had guac, but very appreciative for the menu options

Disorganized kitchen, but friendly to vegans

I ordered the veggie set for 1. Tripadvisor said they'll accomodate vegans so I just told them I'm vegan. The girl asked if I want dairy and said no.

So they bring out the tacos, but then one of the cooks rushes over apologizing they put in cheese, ok I have to wait a bit longer, no biggie. Then the girl at the counter comes over and asks if I want something other than the tofu quesadilla (because she didn't realize that a quesadilla without cheese isn't really possible). She was able to sub it for a nice big burrito.

Food was good. 21,000₩ for a veggie set 1,000₩ for a draft beer. Quite a bit more expensive than your average 식당 but where can you found a 식당 that has ANYTHING vegan?

Pros: They're accomodating to vegans, Lots of English speaking staff, Big portions

Cons: Not the cheapest, Kitchen seems a bit disorganized

Nice tortillas

I loved that theres a veggie set. It was a quesadillas with tofu and cheese, tacos with homemade wrap and we switched the tofu with nachos (the best I ever have). The quesadillas were to salty for me but everything else was quality.

Pros: Good food, Nice little spot

Cons: Salty

Good food and drinks

I used to visit here more often but it has been over a year since Ive been back.

At night, it's required to order a set, which is actually 2 menu choices and a drink. Something to keep in mind if youre not hungry or trying to eat less. There are 2 tacos in each order.

This time I had tofu tacos, burrito, and a margarita on the rocks. The food was delicious. They have a lot of delicious sauce on the tacos. It was too much food so I took half of my burrito home with me. The drinks are also really delicious, but I would be frustrated to be forced into buying a drink if I didnt want one. There are non-alcoholic options like lemonade available.

When you order vegan meals you should specify you want to remove cheese and sour cream as well

The atmosphere and customer base here seems to be a lot of US military. Staff members use English. The staff was very friendly and accommodating to me.

I was really impressed with the taco so I will be back soon.

One of the friendliest/best taco shops in Seoul

Popped in with a friend after a long day and they were able to seat us even tho they were about to close. The food was fresh and tasty, but I think what really made the visit was the fact the owner popped out to talk to us and give us a list of other restaurant recommendations. It was nice and really made our night. Really recommend!

Pros: Friendly staff , Fresh food, Cozy atmosphere

Cons: Expensive

would be 5 stars if they were only vegan!

The tofu tacos were great! Making their own tortillas makes all the difference. All the ingredients tasted very fresh.

Pros: Great tacos as good as anywhere, Nice staff

Cons: No hot sauce out for customers. Have to ask, no chips and salsa

Best tacos in Seoul!

So happy to have discovered this spot - finally found good tacos in Seoul! This place deserves 5 stars because it's one of the most vegetarian/vegan-friendly restaurants I've come across in Seoul. I've tried a few Mexican restaurants around the city and nothing compares to this spot. The tacos reminded me of the food back home in Los Angeles. I tried the veggie tacos and they were delicious! The hand-made tortillas were the extra cherry on top. The restaurant is also very charming and conveniently located right off of Sangsu station. Highly, highly recommend if you're in Seoul seeking quality Mexican food. Amazing food + very friendly/helpful staff!

Pros: Excellent food, Amazing staff, Nice vibes

I'll be back soon!

Good taste, way too overpriced

4500KRW for adding guacamole, 13000 for a small vegan burrito, with a filling of just rice, pepper and a tiny portion of beans. The taste is good, but it’s the most overpriced restaurant on my travels so far!

Pros: Good taste

Cons: Overpriced, Small portions, Filling quite boring

This was a great option for me. I got the burrito taco set they were happy to make them vegan. The owner came in, greeted me and gave me recommendations for places to visit. Fantastic experience in kindness and customer service!

Amazing !

We had the best surprise when going to Gusto Taco, we were warmly welcomed and the owner took the time to guide us through our first time ordering there. He told us what was best to order when vegan and made sure all through the meal that we had a great time and enjoyed the food which we absolutely did! I can say that those were the best burritos and tacos i've ever had without a doubt! I totally recommend you to go there, you won't be disappointed at all not by the food nor the service. A must try in Seoul for sure!

Pros: Delicious, Great Service, Nice Atmosphere

Great Experience

Came here with a friend, I'm vegetarian, and he is vegan. We were able to customise our orders to fit our dietary needs and all of the staff were very friendly and helpful. The owner was super friendly and not only moved us to a better table, but also have us some great recommendations for things to do and eat in Seoul. The food was delicious, definitely worth stopping in if you're in the area!

Pros: Customisable menu, Great owner, Great ambience

Mexican Oasis

This place made me feel like I was in Cabo. The owner is really personable and will serve you himself. Gusto really knows what they're doing, great service.

The food is a little pricey, but it's understandable. You get a set with tacos, quesadilla, and drink. The portion size is large and filling. The tofu quesadilla is amazing. Rich Mexican flavor. The tacos are fresh. I think it is the best Mexican in Korea.

Pros: Environment, Service, Food

Cons: Cost

So yummy!!!

I had the veggie and tofu tacos. Both tasted fantastic. Also, they have the best corn taco shells I've ever had. The owner was very nice and well aware of what vegan means. They were very accommodating. The only downside is that the food is a little pricy. Luckily, you can order a-la-carte. You don't have to order the set menu.

Pros: Wonderful food, great service

Cons: expensive

5 stars!! Delicious food in Hongdae!

I love Gusto Taco. I have only visited as a vegetarian, and have not since transitioning to vegan. I am confident they would accommodate any requests to remove dairy products. The quesadillas and tacos are incredible. Highly recommend.

Great value and food

We really appreciated the willingness to make as many of the menu items vegan as possible. The food was great and very good value. It's a nice casual restaurant and like other reviewers have said the owner was very friendly and even gave us recommendations for other places to eat in Seoul.
