Vik's is definitely a unique dining experience, but one you should definitely try! The food is pretty good -- spicy -- but it's more the method of service. It's basically like a cafeteria: you order, find a seat, and wait until they call your name. You then go and pick up your food, and dig in! I split three dishes... More

Went there based on previous reviews. Food was below average, atmosphere not nice at all and prices not low. No reason to go there, I will not come back. So many better restaurants in Berkeley!

This old favorite must be visited every once in a while, Chhole-Bhatura continues to be peerless, samosas were also good, But prices have gotten a bit much. So we will have to find other places.

We went to this place on two separate Saturdays, once in October and once in November 2014. This is basically a fast food joint where you stand in a queue, place your order and wait to be called from the service counters. It has several tables and seats, but quite noisy. The choice of food is good and the taste... More

Although this place has gotten fancier over the years and now has enough tables for its ravenous patrons, it continues to turn out the most exciting chaat in the bay area. The batura chole is my regular dish here - a huge puffy wonder with spicy chickpeas. The dosas are very good, and their lamb roti is rich and fantastic.... More

Having gone for a Saturday lunch when Vik's is at its height, we were both delighted and confused by all the food choices, the din and the pretty crazy system for receiving one's food. Still, we loved it, though we ordered way too much. Street food from India right in Berkeley, in a great industrial space. Wow!

Vik's is a Berkeley tradition -- a standout clean, efficient, friendly joint to satisfy all your Indian street food cravings. From chaat to samosas to dosas to kaathi rolls to biryani, Indo-Chinese staples and freshly made Indian sweets, chai and lassi, it's impossible to have a bad meal here. Vik's ups the ante with environmentally sound plating, waste disposal and... More

This place is wonderful. Depending where you walk in, you either enter through the grocery (east side) or food area (south side). The grocery isn't large, but it has an assortment of spices and other items. The "restaurant" is more of a cafeteria area. They have laminated menus and also a written menu above where you order. You pick up... More

I've been here a few times and it hasn't disappointed me yet. As others have mentioned, you order at one location and then they call your name to pick up your food at another location. Food comes out pretty fast and the prices are very reasonable. Be prepared for the long lines especially on the weekends. Don't expect a lot... More

Vik's Chaat corner has some of the best Indian food in Berkeley. It's spicy, authentic, and great for eating by hand. It has a wide variety of food, from sweets, to snacks, to main dinner courses. I love the chicken rolled in bread with peppercorns and sauces. I would really reccomend Vik's if you like spicy Indian food. It is... More
