Vancouver's Kitsilano neighborhood is filled with small restaurants; some good, some not quite so good. The upscale area is filled with ethnic places: Thai, Indian, Greek, Mexican, others. The Indian Oven has been around for several years, despite a second-floor location that makes it hard to spot from the street. It's worth the trek up the stairs to find a tandoori place that is among the city's best Indian restaurants -- and Vancouver has no shortage of Indian places. The Indian Oven likes to promote its butter chicken, and it's a nice dish, but several vegetarian entrees also deserve mention. One that isn't seen frequently is a lentil dish called Daal Amritsari. It's made with different varieties of yellow lentils, and it's great with steamed basmati rice.

Another is Palak Paneer, a spinach and cheese entree that's common to most Indian restaurants, but not often as well prepared as this one is. The usual chicken, fish and lamb entrees are present, as well.

Because the place is seldom packed, the atmosphere is quiet, and service is good. Parking, like pretty much anywhere in Kitsilano, can be tricky, and meters in Vancouver operate until 10 p.m.

We love this place. I crave their butter chicken. Alcoholic drinks are on special and inexpensive. The food is prepared quickly and is hot and fresh. They also accommodate larger groups. I drive across town to go here. Love it :)

As a Brit, I'm always on the lookout for a decent curry in Vancouver. This is pretty darn close! Their butter chicken really is delicious and their bhindi (okra) is fabulous. Try them together with some pilau rice.
