“Terrific Indian food in a cool place”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2013

Really good, really authentic Indian fare. Lots of variety. Delicious and reasonably priced. Check out the grocery next door for hard to find ingredients.

“Want to feel like you in India, eat at Viks”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 14, 2013

The delightful descriptions of the chaat selections made me feel like I was buying from Indian street carts and it was delicious. Be prepared for a bare bones do it yourself experience with order and pick up when your name is called. Quite an adventure in spicy tastes. Search it out if you are in the East Bay.

“Glad I finally made it to Vik's”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 27, 2013

Had been wanting to lunch at Vik's for years but never got around to it until last week. At first I was slightly put off by the institutional cafeteria-style setting although I sort of expected it, but the food was simply delicious. Got to talk with Vik (nice guy!) about preparing food for a party I was planning, and that seems like a great option. I know now why Vik's is a Berkeley standard, and look forward to return visits and to shop at the lovely market which adjoins the restaurant.

“Great Lunch”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2013

We went into Berkeley for the day and tried Viks Chaat. It was a unique and fun opportunity to try some new Indian food and see exactly how it is made. We watched from the counter as the main dishes were prepared. Excellent flavors, fresh ingrediants and a wonderful family experience of the culture. Highly recommended.

“Great Indian fast good”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 27, 2013

If you want delicious Indian fast good, you have to visit Viks. They have everything- from dosas to chaats to biryani. Long lines on weekends but service is fast.
