I have visited this establishment on several occasions and have never been disappointed. The grilled meat dishes are amazing. The service is attentive but not obtrusive just the way I like it. I totally appreciate the endless cups of piping hot Indisn tea. I am glad I do not live too close to this place.

We went to this restaurant for the first time on the recommendation of a good friend. Everything about this place is correct. The owner and staff are attentive. You get the strong first impression that they actually care that you have made a choice to eat in their restaurant. The owner introduced himself to us, as did his wife. Where... More

Very Centrally located, James Grill does great job on all their meals. Their Samosas, Mogo, Curries, Nyama Choma (BBQ'd meat platter > african style) is fantastic. Try their steak! You will be blown away with the flavor and tenderness and rivals any steakhouse at half the price, besides they will serve it up with Masala potatoes, if you ask for... More

If you are looking for a good breakfast all day, nice place to stop and meet. Service and staff very nice. Good portions and good value. Check it out. They also do lunches and dinners. All meals looked good. Must be, as there over lunch hour and was busy.

Had late lunch there.. Mogo was particularly good; daal bhaghia and kabobs also good. Traditional Kulfi was excellent and they serve Indian tea. Tamarind chutney was a little watery but tasted fine

Excellent food and service. I often visit while I am in BC visiting family. Great for take out as well. A good selection of options and spice level for whatever you order. I recommend to all friends. This one is a must visit.

Had breakfast here and found it to be good, slightly overpriced but decent. Service was ok, considering there were not very many people we were a little ignored, I could have had more refills for my coffee. It was a nice day so we sat on the deck which was pleasant, the restaurant looked very nice and clean. It had... More

We enjoyed having lunch here. Tried two Indian dishes - Butter Prawns and Chicken. Both were excellant and the portions were large. Menu has a bit of everything. Good value!

More of an Indian cuisine. Eggs Benny was not authentic. Hollaindase is not straight egg yolks. Would be curious to try their Indian food but will never try breakfast here again.
