Everything was amazing from the food, to the service to the drinks. The service staff was very attentive and knowledgeable. I also felt very safe with all the proper covid 19 protocols in place. Will definitely be back!
Meal was brought out while we were still half way through appetizers. Service was brusque.
The food was good but the service just didn't feel right. Servers were not able to talk about the food as I expected, and seemed a bit too casual. Blue paper masks on some made me feel like I was in a hospital. As well, $8.50 for a samosa is a bit pricey.
Great food and service. We felt safe; the tables are quite widely spaced for covid.
Warm and welcoming people, amazing food, beautiful space, and amazing to meet Vikram himself.
Love the option of the Thali as the menu items are so diverse and blend the traditional with the experimental - you get to try a bit of (almost) everything Vij’s has to offer, making you want to come back again and again.
If I could improve one thing, I would love to see more naan and rice come with the Thali.
My first time to Vij’s but it won’t be my last. Beautiful decor and ambiance and top level service. Vij himself came to our table a couple of times to thank us for coming and ensure all was ok. Will be coming back!
Great tasting food! There's an option that allows you to try out several dishes in one serving which was great. Cocktails were delicious as well.
By FAR the finest Indian dining experience we have endured !
Very disappointing. Did not enjoy the food. potatoes were raw and cold. We expressed that to the server and they did not see it as a concern. We also did not eat much from our mains ..and they also did nothing . We are punjabi , and it was not authentic at all !
This place is amazing. I love it and will keep going there. Vij and his staff are the best and the food is outstanding.
Great culinarily fun. Both husband and I did the sampler plate which meant we tried 8 different dishes. They were all good to amazing tasting. Would definitely go back.
Only side note, ask not to be seated near the door, especially in the winter. It opens and closes a lot and we found it uncomfortably cold . We asked to move and were very nicely accommodated
Disappointing -- and I can't put that down to Covid-19 challenges. We were told as we were being seated that we had 90 minutes to dine due to second seating arrangements. Well, that was a problem since 75 minutes in our appetizers had still not arrived (we cancelled them, and they turned up after our meal came). The service was abysmal. My partner had to ask for a new glass of Prosecco since the first one (served in a regular wine glass) was flat, and the replacement took about 20 minutes to arrive. The food, when it finally did arrive, was good, but not in the least remarkable, and served in what looked a bit like a hospital tray. The ambience is a far cry from the old Vij's: no sprarkle, not even a nod at New Year's eve (when we were there); you could be dining mid-week at a Swiss Chalet. We will not be returning.
Lamb popsicles are the way to go
Excellent evening would definitely recommend it to friends
Delicious as always!
Tried the sample size of four main dishes, it was a great way to share and tried some new dishes with my husband.
Once again a delightfully delicious experience. Vij’s never disappoints- it’s our favourite restaurant and number one go to for a date night.
The food is ridiculous and the service is great. Prices are about $25-30 per dish but worth every penny.
If you like ethnic cuisine, you will NOT regret dining at Vij’s. Vikram is often there and goes around to all the tables taking with the guests and thanking them for coming. A nice touch that is rarely seen these days.
Absolutely fantastic as always. As an added bonus Vikram was doing the rounds, but really the star attraction is the food. The eggplant starter with onion rings is so good. Planning our next visit!
I never have a bad meal, everything was delicious
It pains me to write this but there is a serious mouse infestation at this restaurant. I saw at least 7 mice in the upper dining area. The staff did not seem surprised when we told them which makes me believe it’s been a consistent issue. I’m sure the food was great but we unfortunately completely lost our appetite.
Have been here twice, very nice food, nice atmosphere, friendly staff. Nothing can be better! Definitely will recommend friends to come here!
We had a fantastic time at Vij’s for my husband’s birthday. It was our first time. The food was amazing and the service was great. The inside is nicely decorated with a nice ambience and tables were nicely spaced apart. The staff also remembered to put a candle on my husband’s dessert which was very kind. I would definitely go back to try more dishes!
For the price, I would've liked a little better service. But the food is good.
Wonderful food, classy dining room and all staff that helped us were wonderful and pleasant. They have bent over backwards to create a good balance of distancing and mask guidelines for their guests to make the dining experience both a safe and enjoyable one, even during these times.
We had 3 mains and 2 apps for 2 people! Lots of leftover.
Loved the garam masala portobello etc, lamb pops, and samosa. I found the dish with goat meat dry but the curry was flavorful. Attentive and funny service staff.
It was a fantastic meal!
Great service and food. Even had a little visit with Vij!
Thank you for a great dinning experience! Food was excellent, service was warm and welcoming.
A visit to our table from Vikram and his kind words was a special touch! Thank you
Amazing food and service! Vij even came to our table yo check on how we liked the food and to thank us for coming in. So friendly and kind. I suggest we go in and eat there or take out. Avoid Door Dash as restaurants lose 30% off the top and only cover food costs. They need our local support to stay open!!
As usual an excellent & very enjoyable meal with first class service.
Food and drinks were fantastic. Our server was great, we loved him!
Been waiting over 10 years to come, mostly because I was lazy, and also there are other great Indian restaurants in Vancouver. But for sure needed to try Vikram Vij's restaurant, how can you not?
Everything was very delicious, especially the lamb popsicle. The rice was a touch wet, but everything was very good and delightful.
Will be coming here for my Indian fusion fix. Hoping for a Pappy Van Winkle bourbon fix next time, but I can only hope.
A wonderful meal, as always. Chatting with Vij reminded us what an amazing institution this restaurant is for Vancouver and how important it is to support local restaurateurs, especially now. Go! You won’t regret it.
Awesome experience! Would absolutely go back. The owner was walking around thanking everyone for coming and being very personable. Everyone should go and support local!
I really liked the option to pick 4 different items on the menu to sample for the Thali menu. It was generously portioned, the only thing that needs improvement was the tray it was served on. Felt cafeteria like, though I appreciate it served the purpose of dividing all the different items up.
The naan bread was delicious, so was the chai tea offered when we first arrived. Everyone thoroughly enjoyed their food and 2 of 3 had leftovers to take away.
We come back every year for the lamb popsicles as we currently reside in Vienna Austria
You can taste the love in the food served with exceptional personal service
We had a fabulous evening at Vij’s. The restaurant was spotless, the tables were well spaced and the service was friendly and attentive. Best of all, the food was sublime! Vij himself stopped by to thank us for supporting his restaurant.
We had not visited a restaurant for quite some time due to Covid. The few times we had dined out, there was no ambiance and the experience wasn’t very enjoyable. This experience was just the opposite and we are already planning our next visit.
Our experience was very good!
Great Service ambiance and food!
Always a perfect meal. Creamy beef with kale. Jackfruit. Chai. Excellent protocols in place. Friendly staff.
In these times of social distancing, the quality of food and the service remained high. Social distancing protocols were rigidly observed. I look forward to a time when the restaurant can once again be at full capacity.
