My wife and I go to Vic’s often for lunch rather than dinner (since they close at 6 PM M-Th) and I habitually order more food than I should. You may have a wait in line to order, you sit at cafeteria-style metal-topped tables, the restaurant can be quite boisterous, you pick up your order or orders, and bus your... More

Vik's is a fun place for lunch. You can watch the good being prepared, which is always interesting. If you enjoy Indian food, Vik's is a must!

A true gem of an Indian restaurant providing a huge variety of delicacies. They also have a shop in the front selling Indian groceries. The have a great variety if Indian sweets which are very tempting. We ordered a whole bunch if smaller plates to taste more. Everything was incredible. Had a great time including the 5 year old kid.

We were drawn by the great reviews to try this eatery and we were underwhelmed. Having travelled in India and lovers of Indian food, Vik's had some winners and losers. The biggest loser was the lamb dish that was full, and I mean full, of bones. Large bones, medium size bones, and small bones. There were more bones than meat.... More

You can't miss with Viks if you're craving lipsmacking indian street food. It maybe tame for some FOB indians , but is great for most resident indians and other folk.

My go-to Indian restaurant for quality eats @ fair prices. Noisy and crowded but that all fades when you're eating Masala dosas with spaghetti squash mixed into the potatoes and peas, downing cool rose lassis and crunching on perfectly fried fresh fish. Drool.

Awesome place to have good from across the India. Choley Bhatoorey are the best. Lamb and chicken dishes are good. Try Fish pakora if you like something spicy.

Extremely crowded place - absolutely not worth visiting with family. People who take order have no clue on how many people they can accommodate in that place. They have a lot of variety of so called Indian street food but nothing compared to what you would get in Fremont and/or Sunnyvale area. IMO, any chat of "Chat Bhavan" would be... More

We are from the Bay and now we work in Asia... We really appreciate good Indian food. And when we return for business meetings or visits we don't often find places like Vik's that cook Indian food this well. Not only was the food as good as we get in Bangalore and Kuala Lumpur, but the atmosphere was so relaxed... More
