We were looking for a Mexican restaurant near North Burnaby and found Bandidas online in east Vancouver and decided to give it a try. When we arrived we were pleasantly surprised to find out that it is a vegetarian restaurant. It's not your typical Mexican menu so if you're stuck on mexican rice and refried beans this might not be... More

Checked this restaurant out a while back due to its good reviews. Was a little hesitant to go as it was my first vegetarian type restaurant. I was very happily surprised to taste how good it was! Have been back many times since. I live out in pitt meadows, so weekend mornings on occasion we will drive in to get... More

We recently dined here on our daughter's recommendation! (she has dietary restrictions; no dairy, no gluten) Suggested there would be a lot of options for her as well as the rest of us at Bandidas. As we are walking towards the restaurant she happily chirps "oh by the way, this place is vegetarian 😃 but the food is delicious, you... More

The atmosphere is casual as are the servers. Expect a laid back attitude which is quite nice - they get to you....just relax and enjoy. It's a slow pace vibe but not a long wait for your food. The kitchen staff are on their A game! The food was great! Chips with freshly made salsa and guacamole -YUM! The Hibiscus... More

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
