Every time I go to Vij's it's like my first time; the quality of the food and service are always such a delight. We ordered from the Dine Out menu and the portions were big and satisfying - no skimping out on anything! As a vegetarian, it's always exciting to have so many flavourful and delicious choices!

Vij's is a staple in Vancouver! The service was incredible. The flavors were extraordinary! I am always in awe of everything about Vij's. In the pandemic, they have done incredibly well to keep all of us safe too!

Waited a while for our main course (kitchen error) but they made up for it by giving us some extra lamb chops. It was also a lovely surprise to get a glass of wine each for our anniversary. Our table service was outstanding! Server was friendly and attentive and also recommended the perfect cocktail for me. I like sweet with some sour...Cambie Sour was great! Our starter samosas and our lollipop lamb chops were divine! It was the second time we had eaten there. The food is so tasty!

Thought the portions were small & could have used a few more vegetables.
Rice pudding was small &only ok - should have had a mango option as well

Our favourite place to eat when we stay in Vancouver. Vij’s never disappoints. We had the dine out menu for $40.00. Appetizer, main and dessert. The perfect amount of food for the evening. ♥️♥️

Simply put, the best Indian food I have ever had. The service was also excellent and Vij himself came by the table several times to check that we were happy. One of the best restaurant meals I’ve ever had.

They are operating at 30% capacity right now, so there is lots of social-distancing room, especially on a Sunday evening. Servers are very attentive. Mr. Vij came by to thank us for patronizing his restaurant, very classy!

My husband and I each had the sampler plate with 4 meat options and started with an eggplant appetizer. Everything was delicious! The flavours were all unique and each item had so much flavour. The staff was lovely, knowledgeable and attentive, and really seemed to enjoy working there. We look forward to our next meal at Vij’s!

Because of limited seating we were seated in the old banquet room and the atmosphere is not as nice as their dining room but it was fine as the food and service were fabulous. It was also very nice that Vikram Vij greeted us and checked on us a couple of times to see if all was good.

We had a wonderful experience at dinner. The food was incredible, savoury and healthy (one of us is dairy/gluten free and one vegan) and beautifully executed. The service was impeccable. The restaurant was safely spaced and all appropriate COVID precautions were taken - felt safe. The best part was Vij himself was there, welcomed us and then came to check on our experience and "his" food! Made the whole night very special. Highly highly recommend. Can't wait to return.

We have been going to Vij’s restaurant since it opened. We have always loved the food and the very superior service that they offer. Understandably, they’ve revised the menu to accommodate Covid but we were both disappointed with the mixed thalis we ordered. Some of the dishes were cold, the eggplant was basically raw and that is not a vegetable to be eaten crunchy. The presentation lacked finesse and our server was indifferent. The pakoras had zero salt in them so they tasted odd.

I’ve never been so disappointed with our dining experience at Vij’s but it was a Tuesday night and he wasn’t in attendance so maybe that made a difference.

Fantastic overall experience. First time being here and the food was all I could hope it to be. Got to meet Vij, too, he was very warm and made us feel welcome, as though we were guests in his home. They followed safety protocols for covid very well. Went on Valentines and the ambience was perfect for intimate and engaging conversation. I highly recommend.

The eggplant main dish was uncooked and bitter. They offered to replace the meal but only replaced it with an appetizer that we already had as our first course. The spice and cooking is not the same as before. We used to live this restaurant for its balanced and aromatics spices. This time it was disappointing.
