I have been a Bandidas enthusiast since they opened. I've convinced people to wait in line, even in the rain! However, of late, the service has been slow and disorganized, I am having trouble getting behind the restaurant with the same kind of conviction. The straw that broke this camel's back was when I went there to celebrate something special... More

Ate with my son at Bandidas three times during my visit to Vancouver. The food is fresh and vibrant, lots of choice for vegans and vegetarians. Loved the burritos and salads, and the cinnamon tart is divine! Staff were friendly and attentive and there's a great atmosphere. Highly recommended.

Threesome for lunch, had a variety of dishes. The atmosphere was pleasant, Bandida's has great staff, very attentive, friendly, and informative. However the food was simply bland. Hard to understand how Mexican food could be bland. The description of the dishes sounded inventive and interesting, we were ready for some new taste experiences. But it was not to be. Don't...

Went here for dinner with a girlfriend as I had been wanting to go for some time, and she had been a few times and recommended it. We went fairly late in the evening so it was moderately busy. They have expanded as well so there is more seating now. The service was slow to start, but once we ordered,... More

With my son being a Vegan, we went to this restaurant to check out their Mexican Food. The tacos and enchiladas we ordered were wonderful. We really enjoyed the flavours and tastes. The service as well was friendly. The only downsides is that the way the seating of this restaurant is laid out, you are closely packed together and the... More

I am not a vegetarian, and certainly am not a vegan. I prefer meat with my Mexican food as do the majority of my family members. As a result, I was apprehensive about inviting my family (3 generations) to the Drive for dinner, but we all enjoyed ourselves. My aunt & mother prefer more traditional Asian establishments. However, we were... More

This family friendly Vegetarian restaurant/cafe opens from 9 am to 12 am. I was supposed to meet up with my friend around 9:30 am and looking for a cafe/restaurant so that we can eat brunch. I have ordered Brito from Brunch menu, and my friend ordered Benny. Instead of English muffin, they use Corn Bread. They serve HUGE volume! I... More

Love this place. We used to come more often but always hated the long lines. Now that they have expanded the place the wait was very minimal. Service was great and food was awesome! Love that they use corn bread for their eggs benny!!! One of our favorite brunch spots on the drive!
