We enjoyed a most delicious and intimate dinner! Everything was so fresh and flavorful. And although we seemed to have a few different servers they were very attentive and not overbearing. We'll be back again soon!

My husband, father and I visited during a recent trip to Vancouver. We arrived about 20 minutes before opening and had no trouble getting a table. Servers came around with chai tea and appetizers while we decided on our order. The chai was amazing! There is a small, but well-thought wine by-the-glass list. We ordered samosas to share and then... More

Not too sure about some of the details it's possible to fill out in the review. However, I loved this place. We were there on a Monday evening, and didn't have to wait long. Really enjoyed the food, which was a tasty, contemprary take on Indian. Nice relaxed atmosphere, great service. Very pleasant. Thanks guys.

The wait is well worth it. HOWEVER, if you don't like to wait, get there 15 minutes before they open and you'll likely be seated as soon as they open. If you just miss that, they will serve you free appies - and you can order drinks - while you wait! One word: Lambsicles. They are delicious. I recommend them... More

Never been a big fan of Indian food but willing to try different things. While my wife and I were in town, several people recommended this restaurant and saw it was highly recommended in Trip Advisor. Was told there would be a wait and there was one. Their bar is very intimate however the employees were one of the most... More

Be prepared to wait and you will experience delicious Indian food with Vijs own flavours. My family and I throughly enjoyed everything we ordered including the cocktails. It's very popular and you can't book so go to the bar whilst a table becomes free or go early.

Magical food, great environment, not at all pretentious. Vij's just does everything right. The flavors practically explode in your mouth. Do whatever you can do to just get there and quickly.

I don't like waiting and waiting inside Vij's is even worse. Thank god for the appetizers the staff hands out or I would've been a drooling mess. The aroma and finally the food was just fantastic. Next time , I'll double up on the lamb popsicle. They'll have to roll me out!
