Took some local advice and put our name in at the front desk for the wait for a table. No reservations taken when we were there. Went across the street to West and spent an hour with the bartender that was memorable...another review... Service at Vij was spot on, food was exquisite. Some of the best I've had. Headed back...

This is a great spot that we have frequented many times over the years. Service is always excellent and the quality of the food is superb. The waits can be pretty long but lingering in the bar is always fun. Friendly patrons often commiserate with each other and the staff seems to always have a great little appetizer (complimentary) to... More

My son and his girlfriend have been raving about Vij's and fulfilled their promise to take me there on my most recent visit to Vancouver. It was a cool, rainy weekday night, but the place was still packed, so we were ushered to the back bar where a very attentive bartender took our drink order and we sat down to... More

Not only was the food interesting and delicious but the whole time we spent in the restaurant was an experience. The service was as unique as the dishes we were served. As there are no reservations we started our dinner in the lounge where we were served complimentary appetizers with our drinks. After being seated at our table we discovered... More

My husband and I went to Vij's for dinner on a week night. Its basically a high end Indian restaurant (without butter chicken!!). We got there 1/2 hour before the restaurant opened for dinner and there was already 1/2 hour wait outside in the cold. They don't accept reservations. We will not be going back mainly because of the wait,... More

Whether you like Indian food or not this restaurant is a must experience in Vancouver's hip Granville Rise district. The moment you enter the owner, Vij himself personally greets you and makes you feel like a close friend. While you wait for your table the staff in the cosy bar area make you feel welcome by bringing over amazing tapas.... More

This is by far my favourite restaurant in Vancouver. The food is fantastic, flavourful and creative. The chef obviously loves what he does and it shows in his food.

The food is good but not memorable. Great staff and service. A good experience overall. If there were no lines, and I felt like good indian food, I would come back. But I can definitely pass on the food given the consistently long wait times.
