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

First time visit for my wife’s birthday . We were joined by another couple and enjoyed the meal very much. We were served by three different people which I found unusual. Will go back but not for a celebration as other restaurant make a better deal of a Birthday.

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 yet to have a bad experience. Best to go with friends as you can order more food to taste and share. But this time we ordered Vij's favourite snack and Chicken Korma. Always great choices and never disappoints. We look forward to going back again soon. Thanks

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.

Staff were friendly and welcoming. The outdoor and indoor ambiance were warm. However the cod pakoras, papadum, and biryani took over 30 minutes and were overly salty (not from spices). Would recommend this place for the atmosphere.

Excellent but they didn't seem to have our reservation and hence did not know about a nut allergy nor a birthday. They were very careful with the nuts as there are cashews in a few dishes but we had no problems. We were not offered outdoor seating and were unaware of its existence.
Food and service excellent! Unique dishes and drinks.

My girls (ages 17 and 20) and I ate at My Shanti on our trip out to the Vancouver area. We had been recommended to eat here by the owners of our Air BNB in the White Rock area. We absolutely loved our meal there. My girls are both vegan and there was a few options there for them to pick from. We all loved our meals. I had the Chicken Korma, it was delicious! Best chicken korma I've ever had! Chicken was cooked perfectly and had such awesome flavour. The service was great too! Our waitress was amazing! We sat outside and they have a really nice seating area outside. I would highly recommend it to anyone!

Beautiful food and an opulent, rich interior. Our server was friendly and attentive. Loved that you could see in to the kitchen and witness the care that went in to every dish. The washrooms could use a little more attention (chipped paint and rusting/dirty soap dispensers).

Great food, good menu selection, service was excellent. Drinks menu the best I've seen anywhere!
Wine choice was nice & many BC brands.
BUT the noise level was WAY too disruptive, from the tables (just normal talking) and esp the kitchen carried all over the restaurant ---sound screens needed or something??
We'll try the take-away next time.

Lovely restaurent with a charming outdoor terrace. Unfortunately the food we had selected was quite spicy to the point that one entree was left practically untouched.
It was disappointing as I had informed the server prior to ordering of our concerns and his response after our meal was served was that his father had introduced him to hot peppers at a very young age and so that perhaps he was not the best person to make recommendations with regards to the spicy ness of the food served at the restaurant.
A server’s responsibility is to not only take orders and bring food to the table but be knowledgeable about the menu and provide appropriate guidance to patrons.
