I had a lovely lunch at Vij's with a dear friend who I have not seen for months. We had a delicious lunch and were able to enjoy the ambience of the restaurant. We both thoroughly enjoyed our meals. Service was attentive and kind. It was a treat on my Sunday. Thank you.

Amazing food and experience! The lamb popsicles are incredible. Cocktails exceeded our expectation. Energetic and attentive service. Vikram Vij himself popped by to each table several times throughout the night to thank everyone for supporting the business and share laughs - what a special evening!

The staff at Vij's were very well tuned to the needs of both themselves and the patrons during the pandemic. They were attentive but kept a respectful distance. Food was high quality, great recommendations from staff for wine, tables well spaced, helpful in arranging taxi service home - it was all good!

The food and the ambience was amazing! We tried the jackfruit appetizer which was stellar. And the lamb chops with fenugreek and turmeric sauce for the main. It was definitely out of this world!

We had a great time. Staff was friendly and accommodating. I was ready to give up our patio table as I was concerned about getting cold. I’m glad the hostess encouraged us to try it out - she made sure the heater was on and provided me with a fleece blanket. It was lovely and such a nice ambience!

Food was great, service could have been better. It seemed like they were short handed as they hardly visited our table and weren’t communicating among co-workers as we had two different people visit us to take our order and pay our bill, which we had to mention that we had already done.

I saw a lot of reward of this restaurant, but the food I had there is just ok. Appetizer we had the pork spoon and eggplant, it just look so cheap. 6-8 dollars for one bite, flavor is alright. Main we had lamb and chicken. The chicken is grilled, flavor is good but kind of dry. Lamb is ok, I had better lamb at other Indian restaurants. Just not really meet my expectations.

The lighting was very dark, the food was so spicey we couldn’t taste the flavour, and the $14 drink was so small.

We celebrated my wife's birthday at Vijs. We were lucky enough to get good weather and were able to sit on the roof terrace. It was very nice and comfortable because of the overhead heaters. We enjoyed all of our dishes. The price was very reasonable and we got a lot of food. I would highly recommend it.

Overall disappointing. Had great reviews so expected more. All dishes tasted relatively the same and overall lack of flavour.
Service was also not up to par.

First time at Vij's and will definitely return. Had the Thali which lets you try a smaller portion of 4 different mains. Each one was unique and the sauces were so flavorful and different. I just wish there was more wine choices for a glass or 1/2 bottle. Pakoras were probably the best ones I have ever had.

We have been patronizing Vijs’
restaurants since he was just a hole in the wall on Broadway near Granville. His delicious, innovative take on the rich legacy of Indian food, the simple but sophisticated design of his restaurants, the graciousness and high calibre of his servers make Vijs’ our first choice for special events or just a meal out.

Was a little disappointed with the food this time. The presentation of the mushroom, beets, paneer dish was not pleasing to the eye. The other mushroom dish was great.
