“very enjoyable”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 8, 2013

We enjoyed our evening at Vij's. Contrary to what many have said we had no wait the evening during the week that we visited. The lamb popsicles are to die for. A wonderful meal, and glad we were able to visit. Service was exemplary.

“Get there early!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 7, 2013

On a drizzly Thursday night, we got the last table at 5:45 pm! No reservations but the food is legendary. You must order the brussels sprouts - outstanding!
Service was great, food even better!
Vij's is a Vancouver institution so come early and come often!

“Wow”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 5, 2013

Love this place. From the food to the service to the décor, everything is beyond expectations. Hate the wait at the door, but I guess that's part of the charm. One of my favorite places in BC

“Good ambience. Overrated food!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 28, 2013 via mobile

To have the taste of good Indian food, you have to be at Vij's. The place is quite clean and cosy. The restaurant opens only at 5:30 and gets filled up so early. So, to have seat on time, be there at 5:15. The food is good but seems to be overpriced compared to the quantity they give.
Overall good place!

“Great indian restaurant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 23, 2013

I bumped into the Vij's food truck while at a festival and had a great curry and some nice chai. Several people I know also recommended the restaurant so I went there straight before going to my hotel on a trip to Vancouver.

Once seated, the server came around several times with amuse bouches and they were fun to try and tasty. I had the fish special which had wonderful flavour and a little bit of heat. some nice naan bread and a couple of glasses of wine with a small dessert really hit the spot.
