Good Food @ Both Locations, but Don't Forget Restaurant Upkeep @ N. End !

I've always enjoyed the food that I've ordered at both locations because it's tasty, fresh, & healthy. In addition, the staff at both locations have always been friendly. However, at the north end location, the lid on the toilet in the ladies washroom has been broken in two, and then patched... read more

They need to update their cups mugs are so small, They have overpriced cookies date/granola bars at the till,bring healthy stuff from the Green store. Its the only place open before 4pm It's a dark dump with ok music. The food trend is very home made by granola type people. Servers cannot hear you call over the music

All the food here is good. I have eaten here more than fifty times. You have to wait for your order but its well worth it.

I have eaten at Delicado's numerous times, dating back to as early as 2004. I have been to both locations in Nanaimo and like them both equally well. Customers place their orders at the counter; you are given a standing metal Order Number holder to place on your table which allows the staff to deliver the food to you! Pleasant... More

This place serves great southwestern style food. Salads are always unique and fresh. Place is a little pricier then most places but well worth it. Their roll ups are a local favorite and come in a variety of flavored and heat levels. For people not into the spicy style just a heads up that the medium is still rather hot... More

I love the food here, all vegetarian choices are really good! I love the fact that you have a choice of spicy ratings. Service is a little slower, it is always busy here, so expect to wait 20 minutes, if your in a hurry, call in your order. It is a casual ambience, nothing fancy, just good food. You can... More

Whole and often organic meals eat in or take away. The setting is noisy and busy, but not uncomfortable. The "custom" heat option is excellent.

this is faster food, not fast food. There is a difference. If it's busy expect to wait. I had a great veggie wrap today. Hit the spot. I have been eating here since it opened. Great service!

The food is very bland and what should be a quick stop ends up taking a long time because the service is so slow. Many people could easily make a better tasting wrap at home and the ingredients used don't seem to be fresh at all- I thought Mexican food was all about fresh bright flavours! All around a pretty...

Went there for lunch today. Staff did not seem like they wanted to be there. I ordered the enchilada's and my husband had a roll up. The wait time for our food was reasonable. When we got our food mine was cold in the center, it looked and felt like it was heated up in a microwave as the plate... More
