My mother and I have been going to Vijays since I was a child, so almost twenty years. The food had always been amazing. It had been a year since we had last been in and we thought we'd go for dinner. Not only was the food awful the service was awful to. We ordered the dal, tikka masala chicken... More

I feel bad to share this review given the fact that I am sure the owners really care and want to provide delicious food. I am not Indian decent, but our very close friends are and we have experienced amazing Indian food in our time. Possibly these dishes have been altered for a palate that is not experienced with Indian... More

Our party of 7 went for a birthday meal on a Saturday early evening. We had made a reservation and although when we got there the place was quiet, by the time we left it was almost full. The young man that served us could not be faulted. Gave us as much time as we needed to place our orders... More

Surprisingly, this place has a high rating but I still don't know. The food was TERRIBLE! (throwing up) and the customer service was even worse. The owner, Vijay has no respect for his customer. We ordered the following items and this is what we had to say about it..The daal looked like it was just boiled with no spices, the... More

I frequent Vijay's and am always pleased with the place. Service is fast, efficient and friendly. Food is prepared well and always tasty. Value is outstanding. They should charge more! Went for lunch with 2 business associates. Had a great time. Vijay, the owner, takes time to come out of the kitchen and greet the guests. A lost art! We'll... More

For about the same price as a drive through burger joint or a take out sub, enjoy a great curry and good soup or samosa in an environment where the staff are efficient and friendly. The lunch menu has a selection of curries with soup or samosa for around $10, spiced to your liking. If you are allowed to drink... More

This is a fabulous restaurant. The service is excellent and Vijay is often serving you himself. The staff are very knowledgeable and able to help you make excellent decisions. I'd suggest going with a foursome and ordering the meal for 4 its fantastic, you'll definitely have left overs.

This place was absolutely terrible. The food had no taste and no spice/seasonings at all. I don't understand how so many people have rated this restaurant so highly. If you think this is the real deal indian food you need to go to any other place. The naan was like a piece of white bread for heaven sakes. Stay away... More
