The food was very good. We had a lamb dish and some vegetarian dishes. Service was excellent. The setup was more like a cafe so not a great atmosphere. Overall we had good value.

If my recollection serves me correctly we first visited the Mirchi Restaurant in 2005 (I believe that the restaurant has changed hands at least once since then). Although the food is still more than satisfactory my fondest memories are from our first visit way back when. The butter chicken and fish masala are still very tasty.

Really enjoyed the butter chicken (had a sweetness that I personally really liked) Service was polite and friendly. Will happily return.

Wanting some sustenance after a cold evening out of doors I took my family here. We were warmly greeted and given menus. After placing our orders we waited a full 30 minutes for our food to arrive. I'm all for 'prepared from fresh' food but perhaps some part of the meal could have been offered while we waited for the... More

The restaurant is like being invited direclty of the family that own the place. They are friendly and give good advice (especially in terms of what level of spiceness you can tolerate). The food is tasty and you can see the cooker prepare it from your table.

There is a sign outside of the restaurant advising everything is made from scratch and asks for your patience. Definitely worth the wait. The naan was nice and fresh. We ordered the Sarahi chicken, chicken pakora and lamb vindaloo. All excellent. Family run business, very simple and modest looking interior / exterior with limited seating.

Today I was in Marpole area and, since I had appetite for Indian cuisine I went to the “Mirchi”. Surprisingly, it was completely empty. The kitchen was directly beside the guestroom, in fact it was the same room separated only by some cabinets. The manager/chef/server was almost the entire time there, chatting with a woman (his wife?). It took a... More

It's lost in the suburbs of Vancouver a little bit but if you have the time and want some bespoke homestyle subcontinent cooking then this is a great place to eat.

This restaurant is a dive (diners, drive-ins & dives) and has but very limited seating. Had it not been for a very good Indian friend I probably would not have visited this establishment. We all ordered butter chicken, naan and were also served a very crispy bread as well. Much to my pleasant surprise all of the food items were... More
