Four of us (two couples), had lunch at Vij's after touring Stanley Park....we were hungry. We're both well experienced with Indian cuisine and Vij's goes to the top of the list. The food is excellent and creative. When we asked why they served dahl with pakoras instead of the traditional chutneys, their answer was "Why not? Isn't it good?" And... More

We sat outside on a warm August night for a wonderful meal. Service was quick and cheerful, but the food was the real star. Every dish was excellent. We shared 2 appetizers and 3 entrees and were too full for dessert. around $110 with a 2 beer. Highly recommended.

Thank you Vikram Vij for breaking the image of heavy, comfort food inspired, Indian restaurants. I had reservations about going to Vij's Rangoli after not being overly impressed with My Shanti. Do not go here if you expect to have simple, home cooking inspired dishes. This is gourmet Indian food. I cannot speak highly enough of my experience from food... More

Outstanding food! Do not miss! The tea is good, as is the chaat. Service is a bit slow but the amazing food makes up for it.

The food is affordable (14-26$) and tasty. The location is small and pretty, the staff is very helpful. We had the lamb curry and the roasted eggplant + chickpeas and everything tasted great, and we were completely full at the end. Definitely recommend the place, you can taste that those people are working in the kitchen, the result is great.

We ended up going here because we forgot Vij's had moved and it's right beside the old place. Nice ambience for a quick meal. Pricey but not outrageous. Prompt service and very similar to the original vij's but without as many 'fusion' dishes. Liked it enough we bought the second cookbook.

In the mood for a change of scene, I decided to head to Vancouver, B.C., and have lunch at a place I’d been hearing about for a couple of years. I didn’t make it to the place I was seeking, but stumbled upon another establishment that made me glad I’d missed my original mark. Walking around the city’s Granville area... More

Was much better than I had expected. I can the veggie kofta and the lamb dish and I was in heaven. My boyfriend let me pick and he loved it as well. Will absolutely be back. Can't wait to try out the Cambie location.

Had to run to the airport so only grabbed take-out. The dish was full of flavor and very dynamic. Not overly creamy, but enjoyably complex. The is higher quality than your typical Indian place.

Staying in South Granville

Neighborhood Profile
South Granville
The neighbourhood closest to the airport, a generous mix of locals and tourists populate the area. The blend has made it a go-to spot to find an eclectic collection of entertainment, from theatres and cinemas, to antique stores and last-minute kitsch souvenir shops. It gives off a transient vibe, and is one of the more higgledy-piggledy areas in terms of what you'll find, making it a fun area to explore and map out, all while taking in the hectic atmosphere of people coming and going, while others look for the best ways to spend their last few hours in the city.
