Delicious food (except the ‘phish’ in the baja phish 2.0 taco, but the rest of the content of that taco were amazing). Even the vegan cheese quesadilla tasted pretty much like dairy cheese!
And the pibil taco was incredible!

Our hopes were high as we had read great reviews and the place was often full. Not sure if this was just a bad night or a post COVID staff crisis but the food was woeful. Flavourless, and no fresh ingredients. These dishes needed more salad, lime, coriander and spice. The tacos were limp and oily. It was hard to find a vegan option without fake meat. Very disappointing.

Plates were dirty with food stains as soon as we sat down, not the best look. We then ordered off our phones which was fine, however the food came out within 10 minutes of us ordering which didn’t give us the best impression of the food. We then got served the wrong order and then as the food was coming out parts of the order were missing. The food wasn’t that flavoursome and it was distasteful. I then got charged twice in the order as a glitch.

Thank you for the feedback. We are very sorry you didn't like the food and the service was not to your liking. We do have very limited staff and most of our staff are new because of covid. We are trying our best to do what we can in these hard times. When it comes to the ordering issue this is outside our control. We have checked system is not showing two payments. If you feel this is still showing please contact us to look into more.

Personally, I am not vegan - however having said that, my friend and I decided to try Don Taco. I am so glad we did, the food is amazingly good, the staff are so nice, and the place is such a good venue to catch up, have some food and a drink or two with a friend. Highly recommend, and would go back again!!

All you can eat Taco Tuesday was very lovely! Amazing food and outstanding staff. I wish the light wasn’t so harsh for more ambience and a cozier vibe but maybe that’s just me. Had a great time overall and definitely worth it!!
