We had eaten an excellent meal here about 5 years ago so while visiting Osoyoos this year we drove over to Oliver for a return visit. The experience was nothing at all like we had remembered. The naan was not much more than pita bread from the grocery store. The pakora was more about flour than vegetable. The butter chicken,... More

I had a great experience here 8 years ago and so I returned. Frankly, I think it's gone down a notch or two. The food was mostly good - excellent rice too. However, the pakoras had way too much batter for my liking. In terms of service, perhaps the waiter was a stand-in for the evening because he really couldn't... More

This was the best Indian food I have ever had in my life. I love Indian food and I try it everywhere I can but this meal was an absolute front runner. This is a tiny little place in Oliver. The owners of the restaurant are very sweet and nice. I had curried chicken and my mother had butter chicken... More

I want to start my review by saying that I'm not a local. I spent almost two months in town on a house-sitting assignment and got to know a lot of lovely locals this way. One of them invited us out to dinner to Best of India with some of his friends. We hadn't had Indian in a long time... More

I like the restaurant for a change. The food is good but even the mild food is too spicy for me. The mildest spice factor can be taken down a notch or two with some extra yogurt. The service is pretty good but be prepared to wait for your food.

A friendly family run restaurant. Food is good and served on heated plates. The curry spice is adjusted to individual tastes. Portions are small versus the prices. Slow service. Closing time 7pm!

Best of India says it all! A superb place for a curry and a Kingfisher beer! Great food, friendly service and good atmosphere! I would recommend this restaurant to anyone who likes Indian food. They will adjust the spiceness of your curry to your palate!

We mistakenly thought the restaurant was open until 8 PM and showed up at 7:45 PM – about 15 minutes after it had already closed. However, the server/host/owners were all happy to have us stay and wait to get take-out – very hospitable of them! We were very thankful and it was worth the wait. When we got our food,... More

We only eat there once a year, when we are up in Oliver on vacation. But we make a point of it. On our last visit there were three of us, we had three different dishes, chicken curry, butter chicken and chicken vindaloo all accompanied with rice naan and pikoras. We each asked for different amounts of heat, from medium... More
