We LOVE "Best Of India"

We frequent this restaurant, eating in or order take out. Our favourite dish is Butter chicken / with Naan (& hot pickles on the side). We have tried quite a few dishes on their menu, and have never been disappointed. The staff is very personable and ALWAYS come and ask how everything is, and... read more

I was skeptical about going here, but I really enjoyed my meal. The naan in particular was really nicely done. Samosas were a bit disappointing, but the naan and the daal really stood out. Portions are pretty big as well, so be careful not to over order. One tip...don't wait until you are really hungry to go. Service is slow... More

The food is good , but not exceptional. Portions are decent size. Owners are very nice and always very kind. Great stop before or after the Movie Theatre which is across the street.

This a gem in the south Okanagan. If you want very good Indian food you have to make the trip down to oliver. Heck after dinner walk across the street to the policed theatre and make a night of it. The food is fantastic, the Pechora and the samosas are delicious and the butter chicken is oh so good. The... More

I eat at this restaurant often and the food is always great. The only thing that would make it better would be if they made gluten-free samosas.

Curries were good flavour but was a bit disappointed on the lack of spice in the vindaloo. The dishes clearly cater to North Americanized version of Indian cuisine. Not a bad place to go and decent value for what you pay, but if you love the more authentic spicyness you will leave a bit disappointed.

We ordered palak paneer, lamb curry, and a malai kofta (vegetarian dish) that were all very tasty--as good and possibly better than what we have had while in Calgary, and certainly surprising for such a small town like Oliver. I was particularly impressed with the palak paneer. Service was prompt, and the atmosphere was unpretentious but suitable. Portions were decent... More

Hubby and I went there for dinner, looking forward to some good curry. It was good -- but finding three long hairs in the food was definitely not good. Won't be going back.

I had the butter curry and it was very good. The place itself is basic. But the food is so good. And friendly service .
