Great Value Lunch

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... read 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

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

My husband and I always order delivery from Vijay's. We usually get the Butter Chicken Curry with Naan bread and basmati rice. It is delicious and always delivered quickly and hot. So damn good!

This restaurant has been here for years but I just recently returned for the second time. I was on an eighth month anniversary date with my boyfriend. The server accommodated my gluten allergy with a free bread instead of the nan. The chicken and lamb dishes were deliciously spicy. There needs to be a chocolate mousse dessert however and having...

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.
