    We were thrilled with every aspect of our dining experience, with one exception. Since one member of our party is immunocompromized, we called ahead to verify that their staff would be masked, but the host (later busboy) was not.

    We decided to check out the restaurant during Dine out. I ordered a cocktail "Himalaya" that looked as beautiful as it tasted. For appetizers we ordered Papdi chat and chicken 65. Papdi chat was good, chicken 65 was average. I say average because I was expecting more flavor. For main course it was Chana Saag(chickpeas and greens). It was a burst of flavor, really good! Chicken kadhai was good. Garlic naan was delicious, soft on the inside, crunchy outside. Dessert was yummy I had the ras malai and mango pudding. I will definitely go back to try the regular menu.

    I made a point of trying dishes I had never had before and every course was delicious! Portions were very generous- I had to force myself to stop eating the appetizer so I would be able to eat my entree (and even then, could only fit 1/3 before I was full!) cocktails were beautiful and tasty ✨ success from start to finish!

    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.

    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
