I have traveled to different parts of India and eaten everything from street food to gas station communal fare to some of the finest restos India has to offer. I am also a longtime fan of the award-winning Vij's Indian restaurant in Vancouver. I have dined at Pukka 5 times since it opened and each time it has exceeded my expectations. The owners; Harsh and Derek bring a combination of wine knowledge (Derek is a sommelier) and Indian culture (Harsh's native India) combined with first-class customer service and engaging personalities. The room is intimate but not confining, warm but lively. The cocktails are creative, the wine list is well balanced with a nod to local, value and of course well suited to the incredible food! We adore the Kale salad - a welcome and rare fresh item on an Indian menu. The Chicken 65, boatmans fish curry, Beef ribs, french beans and lamb lollipops are favourites for me and my wife. Our fussy daughters LOVE the perfectly balanced butter chicken - one of the best ever. I highly recommend an evening out to Pukka with a special partner, kids or a group of friends!
