About

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!

Vikram Vij

I love the very different dishes at My Shanti. One of my favorites is the duck bryani. We had 7 people in our party and decided to eat family style so we could try a little of everything. YUMMY is l I can say!!

Nice decor, but a little crowded and noisy. Naan wasn’t even close to the best I’ve had, was expecting better. All of the curries were nice though. A shame they don’t have vegetable pakoras on the menu - only cod and paneer are available and I just don’t think they’re quite as good, personally.

Table 33 on November 9th 545pm seating.
We have been here several times but our last experience may be our last. We ordered beverages and our appetizers. When we tried to order we were told the Tandoor was broken. Fair enough. We ordered.

Nobody came back for 45 minutes. I tried to catch my servers eyes many times who would not make eye contact. I actually did not see her again. I had to get the host and let him know what was going on. He said the Tandoor was broken so service was slow. This was frustrating. If the Tandoor was broken and service would be slow I can understand that but our server (who disappeared) did not say that. If she had I would have ordered more appetizers. My son passed out as he was so hungry which was equally disappointing. The host then made sure our food was on our table within 5 minutes. Sitting at table 33, I could hear the conversations amongst staff and it sounded like our order may been missed :(

Needless to say it was an embarrassing experience as I had convinced my dad that it is worth eating out at an Indian restaurant even though we can make the food for free at home.

Can not see myself going back.

Food, ambiance and service were all decent until at the end , the waitress gave us the bill before we asked for it. It’s less than 2 hours since we have been dining there and some of us have not even finished our drinks. We didn’t understand what’s the rush as the restaurant was just like half full!

My Shanti

Hi Anonymous, We're very happy to hear you liked everything! Please know that we always give the bill when a table seems done ordering. This by no means indicates that we want to rush you out! We apologize if that is how you felt. Some guests don't appreciate having to ask for the bill. We always try to anticipate the next step in order to ensure the best experience! Hoping to see you again soon!

Nice traditional decor fused with modern elegance creates a nice looking dining room. The food here is amazing , absolutely stunning , I can compare this food to the best restaurants in india . The wild boar kebabs were delicious , the duck biryani had the right flavors, Karahi chicken was rustic and the whole spices in it created a great taste , the goat was a masterclass dish cooked by a real master chef , the slow cooking technique has been mastered by the chef and the taste rivaled the best in class. I would highly recommend a meal here for the authenticity and masterclass cooking

Vij always makes you feel welcome in his establishment and treats you like family. When it first opened I didn't like the way it was pretentious at the door, make you wait, etc. Now it is a truly welcoming atmosphere. The food is always great. I would like to see more of a rotating specials on the menu as we do not eat meat and it is like going for the same dish..... if that makes any sense
