My Shanti is a reflection of the personal and culinary journeys that I’ve taken with friends throughout India. Each dish has been chosen to represent the uniqueness of a particular region’s cuisine. My explorations took me from the kitchens of home cooks and executive chefs to the ubiquitous street food stalls, exchanging ideas and discovering spice mixtures, ingredients and techniques.

This restaurant is an homage to the diversity and richness of Indian cuisine. I hope that the bold flavours and our style of cooking, along with the passion that we bring to each dish, will excite your palate and arouse your senses.

Namaste and enjoy!

First time visit to celebrate my sons birthday. The best restaurant in Vancouver and Lower Mainland! Vikram Vij visited our table and was charming and witty. Our server was amazing and very diligent about my daughters many allergies. Highly recommend this restaurant!

Excellent experience and a real treat was that Vij was there in person and visited our table several times during the night sharing his stories.

An array of South Asian dishes that made sampling a delight. One had to think carefully for a suitable combination but the quality was good across the selection. It’s identity was blurred without Vij present. Less a Canadian Indian fusion experience and more an array of choices from South Asia. Next time we will have a greater focus on the veg choices. Drinks were good value and promptly served. Spicing level was good for both those with experience and for those in our party they were more cautious.

It feels really exotic because the decor to me is amazing & the food is most titillating for the palate...exhilarating with so many different flavours...
Service is always friendly, engaging, concerned with the right suggestions, patient in explaining in depth the menu or any particular dish.
They strive to put everybody at ease...
At certain times, we are even greeted with the ever affable, vivacious & vibrant owner Vikram Vij that makes a point of visiting each & every one of his patron, insuring they're satisfied...
Overall, it is a pleasurable & consistently delicious restaurant to visit...

Great staff + food knowledge!! We had multiple staff always checking we were taken care off. Would love to name drop to give the servers some credit but didn’t get their names. Thanks for the great night! I was even a bit of a pain when booking changing the number and time they were more than accommodating.

This visit we were disappointed to discover that they have dummied down their beer offerings (featureless Alexander Keith is the only IPA on offer ...) and that they now charge for chutney. As well, our server wasn't as welcoming or knowledgeable as we've had in the past; however, we will continue to visit My Shanti because everything we have ever eaten there has been outstanding.

Had a very good time the atmosphere was very cool and the music was up beat. All the servers knew exactly how to treat us, the only thing I had a problem with was the French fries, I would have liked a salad or something else, since the fries were under cooked and had an unfamiliar spice to them. I didn't even ask for the fries lol. But it was a good experience over all thank you!!

Brenda our server went beyond the call of duty to explain, suggest, fix/resolve an issue that came up...
She has a great personality while exuding great professionalism.
Having been there on quite a few occasions before, I've always had great service & encounters with the staff while the food & the ambiance can be seen as very good.
It is indeed a great place to try out & enjoy something new or should I say different but oh so titillating in the variety of flavours & preparations...very creative...
And the decor is so amazingly "chic et de bon goût" meaning very well designed, luxurious without being intimidating...inviting to comfort & relaxation...
It is also geared to accommodate large groups or families while having some more private sitting areas for more intimate get together...
All in all, a great place...I highly recommend...

We went for an intimate family birthday dinner, and while the reservation wasn't really necessary that night, I could see that many people came in after we arrived - and mostly in groups or families. As our first time, we were delighted with both the menu and the server who was funny, intuitive and friendly without anything feeling false or forced. The meal was delicious and we'll be returning for an evening of samosas and beer. The samosas are probably the best I have ever eaten!

We have had the pleasure of dining at My Shanti on numerous occasions both as a couple and with friends or family. It has always not only met, but exceeded our expectations. The dishes are always spiced perfectly. Most of the time Vikram is in the house making sure his guests are completely satisfied with everything.

Everything was fabulous; the only comment I have is that we had a bit of food left over that we would have loved to take home, and our waiter said that she would pack it up, but we never did get it back. Not sure if she forgot to tell someone or she forgot to do it herself. Otherwise, we had a fabulous meal and can't wait to come back and try some more.
