Food is spectacular. This time we had the quaint table along the window where the landscape was. Lunch time was quiet but the experience is the same. Had the chai today and it was delicious and served extra hot as we requested. Very happy and will return again. Love the ambience.

Upon arrival staff initially stated they didn’t have the reservation showing. I received the confirmation email of the reservation on Sept 14th and the modification of time on the day of the reservation. Unsure why they said there was reservation for me.

We had a lovely culinary experience. Indian food is something I like at my moms house because no other places seem to satisfy me like back home in India. This place came close and that's huge for me. Service was impeccable.

First time trying Sula and we absolutely loved the decor/ambience! We went here for dine out and it was very good value for the money. We were both full and had a little bit of leftovers. Would definitely recommend and we plan to come back to try more of their other dishes.

Beautiful restaurant with a great atmosphere, food was delicious as well! Was looking forward to trying out some of their cocktails since they had quite an interesting selection but was told they had no bartender so I was limited to beer or wine. Disappointing considering it was on a long weekend.

We went during Dine Out and were amazed by the quantity and quality of the food. It was the first night and they were a bit disorganized. They couldn't find our reservation till I showed them my phone then we had to ask for the Dine Out menu even though we reserved through that we site. Once our server arrived everything was good.

We loved the food, and have been there multiple times for great Indian food. It is a great restaurant but their wine list can definitely be improved and their prices can also be improved.

Outside this, if you love Indian food you will love Sula’s.

Always an excellent time at Sula. Great food. Great service. The restaurant also looks very nice inside. We went for the Dine-Out Vancouver for $25/person. It was a great value. I am a pretty big eater, and I was stuffed at the end.

Visited Sula for the first time for their Dine out menu. Beautiful atmosphere, friendly and attentive service and the food was amazing! The dishes were a great price especially considering their size: my friend and I both took part of our entrees home to enjoy again later. I will definitely be back!

I wish I could give a review but unfortunately the restaurant called us the afternoon of our reservation to say they could not accommodate us due to being fully booked? It was disappointing, I've heard great things about the restaurant but this was a rough start.

Dear Jen, We appreciate your feedback, we are always looking for ways to ensure our guests have a great experience from Sula. We apologize we couldn't accept your reservation for the 25th of Jan 2020, we were a part of dine out Vancouver festival and facing technical issues with our reservation system unable to sync with open-table servers on the 24th. That issue is now fixed, hope we can turn around your experience at Sula next time. We look forward to serving you in the near future. Thank you

Took advantage of dine out but possibly a la carte would have been better. Willing to give it another try.

We have been to Sula several times since it opened. Each time has been an exploration of various types of incredible Indian foods. Their curries each have a distinctive flavour with both meat / fish and vegetarian options. Whether you go as a small or large group, you'll have a chance to taste a variety of delicious regional dishes. The Paneer Pakora is one of our favorite starters and like many of their dishes, its gluten free. Friendly service too!

Found Sula while visiting Vancouver. Many GF options. Everything we ordered was delicious and distinctive. Highly recommend the Mulligatawny soup, BBQ chicken tikka. Even the cocktails were unique and outstanding.

Had resos for 7:45pm for my family of 5, we were sat 40 mins later. Our food came after the other 2 tables that were sat after us had their food. Food was spectacular but the overall service needs improvement as the staff seemed overwhelmed and understaffed.
