Still Very Good.

We were here a year or so ago and thought we would try it again. It is still very good. There is a good selection of ethnic dishes suitable for the western palate and lots of personal touches from the people that work at this restaurant.

Celebrated my birthday with 50 of us eating their delicious and piping hot buffet catered to my selection of a mix of healthy foods and their famous samosas of course. They made a stage for our Harmonium playing singer and her musicians. Service was great and the endless chai and delicious desserts satisfied all my guests. Dealt with the owner... More

Three of us ordered from their $7.95 breakfast special menu, a bacon and egg breakfast and 2- eggs benny. The food tasted fine. I dont think that you can really spruce up a standard breakfast order. Their hollandaise sauce was OK, nothing special. It wasnt too runny nor was it too thick. I just found that they use small eggs... More

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.
