While on a day trip to St Jacobs, thought to dine in the locality before we head back to Mississauga. We went to Classic Indian restaurant but that was packed with waitihg list of 30 minutes. So decided to give Vijay's a try since this had some good rating on TA. We were the first one to enter (were told... More

My husband and I ate here as we had a coupon from a coupon booklet featuring local businesses. We had a lovely dinner for two . The food was wonderfully spiced. There was likely enough for 4 people. The service was very good, and you tell that they were truly happy to have you as their guest. We will definitely... More

Review written by an Indian food novice: This was the fourth Indian restaurant that I have tried. I ordered the lamb Vindaloo (I ordered it mild). It still had a bit of a kick to it but mild enough that I still had my taste buds. It was very good with the basmati rice w/peas. I also had a mango... More

There where 4 of us for dinner one evening, we had reservations and when we arrived our table was ready for us. The dining room is small and personable. Everything was very clean and looked like someone was a stickler for details which is nice. We ordered one of their preset dinners for 4. There was plenty of options on... More

This was a take-out. I ordered butter chicken and when asked how spicy I'd like it, I replied "mild plus a little bit of spice", to which the owner replied, "Okay.... Medium Spicy". The butter chicken was medium spicy and while a couple of traditional spices and flavors were recognizable to the palate, there was something missing. I couldn't put... More

Three of my friends and I decided after a Saturday afternoon of shopping St Jacobs to try Indian Food. Vijay’s, on the border of Kitchener and Waterloo was a GREAT choice! We each ordered a different item from the menu and shared. The results were a treat for all of us. The rice platter accompanying the meal was delicious! The... More

This used to be our favorite place. Over the past 12 years we have noticed a decline in the food - taste, freshness and amount. So sad

Delicious, authentic Indian food. We ordered a the "Dinner for Two" combo and it was probably best suited for four people. This was unfortunate because we were leaving the next day anyway so there wasn't much place for leftovers at our hotel and we certainly couldn't finish the whole meal. Everything was mildly spicy like typical Indian food, though for... More

The ambiance is... More
