“Delicious home made food !”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 26, 2013

So far the best tikka massala we ever had !
We can guess that everything is made from scratch. Just delicious !
(You go there for the food not necessarily for the location. I wouldn't go there for a romantic dinner but to enjoy amazing indian food with family or friends ; )

“Worst butter chicken I've ever had!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed October 6, 2013

We tried this restaurant because of the good reviews it has in the internet, but the experience was totally different from what we had read.

We waited for a long time before we were given the menu (which was expected as the reviews say). But the waitress was rushing like crazy. Relied on her memory for the customer's order. When the food was served, the naan and aloo gobi were fine, but it was the WORST butter chicken I've ever had! Too bitter and too salty. Not even creamy. It doesn't taste like butter chicken, looks like she forgot my order, and was given something else, and she forgot to serve the drink that I ordered :(

“Proof is in the eating as to why we love "Hole In The Wall" restaurants.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 1, 2013

We love this place. It's one we return to frequently, for the owners are delightful people and the food is terrific, atmosphere cosy and cheerful. One always feels welcome here.
They offer the best naan bread anywhere and aren't kidding, when they refer to themselves as "the butter chicken specialists"! You can choose the level of "heat" you want your dish to be, mild, medium, or hot. Beware, when they say "hot", they're not kidding.
My favourite item is Fish Kerala, it's flavoured deliciously, perfect for the aforementioned naan breads. I often go home with enough leftovers for another meal. Rice is always perfectly cooked. I highly recommend their chai tea for the colder months and their mango lassi for warmer days.
Delivery isn't available, but you can order for pick up.
Have to get back there again soon... it's been a bit too long since we last did. Always worth stopping in, any day of the week, for lunch or dinner, in this tiny Marpole gem.

“Good flavor and phenomenal service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 22, 2012

3 stars for the food, 5 stars for the service; which evens out to 4 stars.

We had a meeting near the Vancouver airport and were craving Indian food for lunch. The closest place we found with good ratings was Mirchi, so off we went. Once inside, we were blown over by amazing scents wafting about, the cheery yellow walls and the sight of several pots simmering away on the big stove. We then noticed that there was only one man handling everything - cooking, patrons, the whole shebang.

We sat and were promptly served fresh water. The lunch menu was short (about seven items) but covered all the important bases. I ordered the butter chicken (medium) and the hubs went for the chicken curry (mild). We had a chance to speak with the owner, and as it turns out, he previously owned a great kabob place right down the street from our home in Seattle! Very cool coincidence.

Lunch was served and the owner kindly included a bit of yogurt for the hubs so he could cool his mouth in case the curry was too spicy. His curry had a great taste and the base roux flavor shone through. My butter chicken was very good as well, loved the flavor of the chicken but the sauce seemed to separate out a bit, it didn't hold together as most butter chicken sauces do.

Overall, good flavor and phenomenal service.
