This place has excellent food! Easily one of the best meals in Vancouver! The lamb popsicles are delicious as is almost everything else. The lineup is quite long though and they don't accept reservations so don't come hungry!

I used to be shocked when people say that Vij's is overpriced. Well, I think I agree now. All vegetarian dinner, with 1 glass of beer, 1 glass of wine, and NO desserts came to $132 with tip. This used to be my #1 favourite restaurant in Vancouver. Tonight things seemed different.... - total turnaround of staff - the new... More

I've been here a couple of time, including one time sitting down with the owner. Place : Great ambiance, they don't take reservations and the lines get long usually but totally worth the way. While you wait, snacks are on the house - get a bottle of Wine and wait itself will be a great experience. Food - Select authentic... More

Good authentic Indian food with great service. If you don't like waiting, don't go! If your from London you've probably had better food. Veg - few good options - shiitake mushrooms

But I have had some amazing Indian food in Birmingham, Reading (UK) London, Amsterdam, NYC and at my BFF's MC Patel's house. It says in Vij's cookbook that he wanted to create the best Indian food in Vancouver, I think it's the best Indian food I have had anywhere anytime. Vij's doesn't need another great review, you turn up at... More

Best meal we had in Vancouver! However, be warned, you need to go EARLY. They don't take reservations so be prepared to wait. We got there approximately 10 minutes before the restaurant opened, and we were able to get a table (2 people). A line had already formed. After the restaurant opened, the tables filled and everyone else had to... More

If you don't mind standing in line, or hanging in the lounge at Vij's enjoying a fabulous glass of wine, a lemon drink, or Indian chai this is the place to be. Fabulous food with outstanding flavour, great staff and host located in South Granville area.

Glad to have found Vij's and had a chance to try their delicious cuisine. Certainly Indian-based though not like the food i've had in India. I'm glad Vij is pushing the envelope into new gastronomic territory, especially for Canada.
