Fabulous food, excellent service. One of my favorite restaurants in Vancouver
The food at Vij's is amazing. It offers a thoroughly gourmet and individual interpretation of Indian fare, and so many great options. The service was also top notch, helping us navigate the menu. And the new location is amazing -- with the added bonus of reservations through OpenTable!
Great food! Loved the tastes of appies that was served before we ordered. Good service!
I've always enjoyed dining at Vij's and have recommended them to many friends and families in the past. We've noticed that over the years, the value has declined quite dramatically. To give you an idea, I'll use an $18 plate of asparagus and winter squash as an example. This dish has 3 slices of winter squash and 2 spears of asparagus, some black chick peas and a few cashews. In my opinion, these ingredients are inexpensive and the serving can be increased. I'm pretty certain adding a dollar worth of ingredient to the plate will not put the business in jeopardy. I hope the owners will consider this review as a positive reminder of the importance to continue to improve.
I love lamb popsicle, that’s a main reason for me to visit Viji. I have ordered the dish 3 times and this time was 4th. I liked the taste as always but the presentation was surprisingly poor. I ordered 2 popsicles, maybe that’s the reason, but the lamb were just dumped in a very small bowl with the sauce. I forgot taking the photo, but those who have ordered would know what I am talking about. I felt disappointed because that was my entree and I remembered how nicely they presented before. I believe presentation plays a big role for this level of restaurant. So I hope they reconsider this point and look forward to seeing it in nice way next time. I still love the taste and come back!
We had a birthday dinner with 6 people. It was great to be able to make a reservation!
A couple of the people in our party had not been to Vij's before. The wait staff was very helpful, describing many of the things on the menu and.helping us decide how many dishes to order.
The food was delivered promptly, with an appropriate time interval between courses.
Needless to say, the food was delicious!
We'll be back! Soon!
Fresh, delicious food + great atmosphere, great service!
I’ve only been a few times but each time it’s great service and divine dining!
Vij's lives up to its reputation. While you could consider Vij's an Indian cuisine restaurant, many of the dishes are influenced by cross cultural elements. Vij's is truly an original and delicious dining experience.
The food was amazing. Rich, nuanced flavours, beautifully presented, wonderful service, we so enjoyed our evening.
Wonderful food, attentive service, and speedy delivery to the table! Delightful naan!
Despite the hype, the food here is average. I’ve had better Indian food at many other restaurants in Vancouver that were less expensive or noisy.
Whenever in Vancouver we pay a visit to Vij’s...the ambiance is perfect for catching up with friends. The food is superb...upscale yet family style...every dish was delicious.
Far-from-typical Indian food, well prepared and delicious. Just a little difficult to carry on a conversation with our friends but, overall, a lovely dining experience.
We reserved for 5:45 pm to celebrate my husband’s 60th birthday with friends. The feeling we got is that we were being rushed through the meal - serving plates removed while we were still eating, wineglass too - for the next sitting although the restaurant was not busy. The food was delicious - heavy on sauce perhaps - but we did not get time to enjoy it.
Vij's has wonderful menu offerings that seem to adapt and change with ingredient availability. The lamb popsicles, which we were told have been on the menu from the very beginning, are definitely worth trying! Great and very knowledgeable wait staff as well!
This is our second time to Vij’s. We live in Vernon so we don’t get to eat there as much as we’d like.
The food is truly an experience like no other. It’s like every taste bud is having a party. Be sure to get the mushrooms and the samosas! . 💚
Lovely as always! Food was spectacular, drink recommendations were perfect and so was dessert! The only thing was the server was a little abrupt. That was the only thing that ran a little short for the evening. Seeing Vij and having a picture take was also lovely! Such a personable man with obvious love for his clients, restaurant and food!
Beautiful meal topped by meeting Vij himself! Had not been to this new location and we were so happy to be able to make reservations. A very special evening!
The most amazing food I have ever had. The Lamb popsicles are a must!!! Everything was really tasty and overall great experience! I would highly recommend!
We miss the old place but still love Vij's. The service was wonderful, and the flavors - as always - were absolutely fantastic.
Vij’s is very popular and for good reason, the food and service are outstanding. Opening at 5:30pm daily we arrived at 5:00pm and were forth in line. Everyone who arrived by 5:30pm were immediately seated on our Sunday evening in mid-November visit.
We were given a light snack and tea as we looked over the menu. Our waiter asked if this was our first visit when we replayed in the affirmative he took extra time to explain the menu. We ordered a dark beer which was outstanding. Per suggestions from our waiter we ordered an appetizer, one full plate (2 ‘popsicle’ chops) and a half plate chicken dish. The creamy sauce with the chops was really special. Naan bread came with both the appetizer and again with the meal. All items were delicious.
The rest rooms, 3 each unisex, had cloth hand towels which was a surprising accent to the evening.
$70 Canadian for our meals and drinks.
I definitely recommend.
We were able to make a reservation for later in the evening which was great. The server was very knowledgeable with all her recommendations and the food and service was excellent!
Fresh East Asian food with a few twists. We have yet to stumble across a poor dish at Vij's.
As always Vij’s food, service and atmosphere were awesome!!
We have been to Vij's many times before, but it's always a new experience. We had some new items from the menu and they were wonderful. The pork tenderloin appetizers were wonderful. Our server was a man who was a bit of a hipster, and excellent, and he gave us some tips for making an egg dish with the leftovers in the morning!
Top of class service, food + Team.
And very accommodating
Cannot day one negative thing about our dining experience. The service was excellent and the food was so delicious. The staff really care about your dining experience and are so personable. They think about everything to the last detail. Would definitely visit again and highly recommend!
Given we had a baby at the table, service was unforgivably slow. Certain dishes - lamb, jackfruit, samosas - were total crowd pleasers. We tried a good portion of the menu and not all dishes were up to par. Disappointing based on past amazing experiences of this restaurant.
A very good anniversary dinner. Server was very knowledgeable and friendly. Food and drink was exceptional. The only glitch was that I didn’t check the bill until we got home, when I discovered that we were charged full price for my wife’s entree (chicken paneer) when in fact she ordered the smaller portion. Had a drink at the bar before dinner, and the bartender was excellent. The cocktail he suggested was truly delicious. Tried to tip him, but he refused to accept it as he explained that staff shared the tip pool.
One of the best meals I have had in my life. Waited 6 years to go to this restaurant (I am from Ontario), and it did not disappoint
Great ambience: warm & inviting. Waitstaff friendly/courteous and knowledgeable on food prep. Made great recommendations. A lot of gluten free options and they were able to make substitutions on most of the menu. Seasoning on food was great. Left very satisfied. Will definitely visit again.
have eaten there many times and it is always good. I am ready for more from this restaurant. Seems to stagnant.
We felt we were rushed. The food came to quickly, although very tasty. It felt like they were turning the table over to fast.
Amazing food and service! Food recommendations were excellent, can’t wait to go back!
very poor acoustics, could hardly hear what my guests were saying across the table due to constant high level humming. the food looked interested but the 3 of us did not enjoy the dishes we had so we are going back to the old fashioned indian cuisine at palki’s family restaurant in north vancouver where the chicken massala and beef curry always taste superb and the nan bread is always soft inside with a crispy cover.
Excellent as always. Great food and great service.
A really special place for Indian food.
Excellent food and make sure to try the cocktails too! Could have eaten everything on the menu!
Love the food, it’s so different than any indian we’ve had!! Great service! A bit pricey (especially for the lambcycles).
