“"Im on this Band Wagon"”
Reviewed August 26, 2013

If you have vegetarians to impress with Vancouver's vegie variety this is a great place. It is a relatively small venue and there is often a line up but it moves quite quickly. They have a liquor licence with some interesting alternatives but there are also some nice non-alcoholic choices. I like the hibiscus lemonade. They have all day breakfast and Brunch between certain hours that offers a wide choice of egg and vegie dishes. I have sampled the various tacos which provide interesting combinations of vegetables, nuts, cheese avacado and salsas, all very tasty. The tortilla soup is thick and delicious, I usually add some salt and spice it up. It is filling, try a half bowl and something else. Last time I also sampled the chile. It was a bit bland for me and again I added some spicy sauce and salt and pepper. Its a nice venue and the service is friendly and quite quick for the number of customers they have to deal with.

Massive portions, great staff, really tasty Vegan food for mains, starters & sweets, a hike from Yaletown but worth it!

“Comida excallante!”
Reviewed August 23, 2013

Other than feeling like we were the oldest in the joint. We loved the food. Great flavors, texture, quantity and preparation. You could go there several times and just keep trying different combinations. Just creative and tasty. Service is attentive. The place is hopping busy. The ambiance has some things to be desired but for the people watching and diversity of the crowd.

“reFreshing take on Mexican”
Reviewed August 10, 2013 via mobile

All vegetarian Mexican food with flair... and very accommodating to alterations (even though it's not on the menu they gave me 3 enchiladas with 3 sauces). The mole was pretty good, which is an indicator for me. The enchilada filling needed some heat, but still tasty. Great friendly service and relaxed atmosphere. Commercial Drive treasure.

“Wonderful service, fantastic food, great atmosphere, good price”
Reviewed August 6, 2013

The Bobcat baked burrito wins this one. My husband usually is not keen on going to vegetarian restaurants, but liking the vibe, he was willing to give Bandidas a try. He claims he won lunch because he order the Bobcat baked burrito, and loved it. It was quite busy on a weekday, so we sat at the bar, and enjoyed watching dishing coming out of the kitchen. If we find ourselves in Vancouver again, we would definitely go back.
