“Great Little Indian Restaurant”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 3, 2013

We found this place when we tried it on "Dine Vancouver" and have returned several times since that first visit because the food is fresh, delicious, & reasonable and the staff are friendly and attentive.
We have dined here about half a dozen times and been pleased with each visit.
There is a good variety on the menu, so lots to choose from.
There is usually parking right on Broadway..or nearby.

“Deccan Kabab Curry (Goat Curry)”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 24, 2013

Vancouver's finest goat dish. I order it hot and it still has enough flavour to stand up to the heat. If you can't, they serve a spiced buttermilk drink called Moru that will cool your mouth right down.

Easily this city's most original Indian menu. The restaurant is clean, the service is great, great value, I just wish it was closer to Horseshoe Bay! Well worth the drive.

My Celiac, vegetarian GF loves the Masala Dosa.

“Terrific Neighborhood Indian”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 29, 2012

If you want to wait two hours, and spend a fortune on Indian cuisine for dinner, the Vij's is probably the place for you.
Chutney Villa isn't fancy - It's an unremarkable storefront on Broadway - but the food is excellent, the menu exhaustive, the service efficient and very friendly, and the prices quite reasonable.
My wife and I were in Vancouver for just four days. I research our dining options (probably a llittle too) extensively. This was one of our four dinners (Blue Water, Cioppino, and Kingyo) and we enjoyed it as much or more than the others.
Kind of place we'd go regularly if we were locals.
