Not our first visit, and certainly not our last. My wife and I went for a quiet dinner using a coupon from a recent mailer. The menu was set by the coupon, so we simply ordered drinks and waited for the food to arrive. It was a dinner for two, with vegetarian as well as meat dishes, and everything was... More

We went there for lunch and got the lunch special. The samosa and soup were just average to below average. The curries lacked depth of flavour, on par with grocery store jar sauces. The rice was not good, not sure how you mess up rice. If you like middle of the road curry the lunch special is a good deal.... More

Arrived in late evening to a half-full restaurant. Service was excellent - server was prompt, courteous and knowledgeable. Ordered the house specialty - medium-high spiciness. Food arrived promptly, but was missing authentic Indian flavour. Meat was somewhat tough and chewy. Owners were seated behind me and were involved in a somewhat heated discussion throughout my meal. Not sure if I... More

I went with two good friends to have a meal of good Indian food and found some very tasty delights at Vijay's. We were greeted at the door by a cheerful waiter and shown to our seats. The restaurant is small but comfortable. The service is wonderful… attentive but not overly intrusive. Our drink orders arrived quickly and our food... More

Perfect for the carnivore, vegetarian and omnivore. Small restaurant, big value. The food is tasty, as spicy as you like, lots of it, and you're allowed time to savour between dishes. I like that pause. Really enjoyed the flavours of every dish. We chose a dinner for three and, wow! There was a lot of food. We all had our... More

We were driving by and saw Vijay's and decided to give it a try. We loved it! The food was amazing. Very flavorful. I had the samosas which were excellent and the Chicken Tikka Masala which was to die for!! My husband had the lentil soup, the Aloo Gobi and the lamb curry and he LOVED them all. Our waiter... More

Four of us visited this restaurant the night before our golfing trip to Cancun (we were leaving the next day). From the time we arrived, the service was just excellent, employees so welcoming and informative. We had never been there and had no idea what to order so the server suggested sample platters of each item. We agreed and are... More

Thought to try this place again as it was pretty good many years back. Made a reservation the day before for three. Arrived spot on time, were led to a table near the back (which was occupied) and then our group (including a 79-year old with a leg ulcer) were forced to stand there in the middle of the narrow...

Ordered combo for 2 with ease. It was ready in 40 minutes to pick up. We had combo 2 and found there was more for 3 people and leftovers for later. Tikka and Biryani rice together was great!
