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

Yummy food and an interesting experience! They had a unique variety of cocktails and service was great. The dishes are pretty pricey but definitely worth trying at least once.

Absolutely one of the best meals I've had. Everything we had was delicious (including the cocktails), but the standout was Vij's Favorite Snack - flatbread with mushrooms. We can't wait to come back.

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).

The service was excellent. I loved all the dishes we tried that were recommended. I would definitely come back for more. We sat outside on the patio and it was quiet enough to have conversations. Keep up the good work.

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.

A great meal for a BDay celebration, Vij's coming to mingle with the guests was amazing.... Food was amazing, amounts of food was excellent...... great atmosphere.

The only negative is the mandatory 18% gratuity that was automatically added.... I STRONGLY do not agree with this practice as gratuities are meant to reward good service & should only be a patrons decision.... for that reason I will think twice going there.......

The food was outstanding!! The service was great. I would love to be back.. but I am not sure if I can. I found the restaurant way too loud, it was close to impossible to have a conversation. There was a charity event taking place and I think the restaurant had over booked. I was surprised as my visit was on a Monday so I didn't expect that atmosphere. I am unsure if it is always this loud.. but for me it ruined the experience. Maybe I am just getting old..

Great Foodie experience! The food was fresh, well spiced, and delicious. The wine menu featured wonderful Okanagan Valley labels. The wait staff and the owner were attentive. Decor was perfect. I can’t say enough positives. I’ll be eating here again if I ever get back north of the border. No, let me rephrase. This alone would be worth making another trip north of the border.

We were pleasantly surprised when we walked into the restaurant and Vij was at reception. He grabbed a couple of menus and sat us at our table. We had the gunpowder prawns to start with the eggplant and chicken korma for mains with naan and jasmin rice. Everything was super and our waitress was the bomb.

We had the three course dinner. Food was good and okay for the price. We weren't happy with the service at all. People who came after us, ate and left, and we were still waiting for our main course. I understand if it takes time, but would appreciate someone telling us how long it's going to take. We were just sitting there, waiting, waiting, waiting and losing our appetite.

Vickram has done it again! Great authentic food with his special flair. My Shanti is a 30 minute drive for us but it's worth it. Great food, atmosphere and service and it's a little different style than most Indian restaurants I've been to - definitely worth trying out!
