Ok has a sampling plate with four items of choice. I had four meats! All were excellent. Amazing how Vij spicing adds to the dish. Well worth the hassles of COVID dining.

If you haven't been, you must go. Fantastic food and service. A great rooftop patio and it's always a pleasure to see Vikram chatting with guests throughout the night. We always leave satisfied and looking forward to our next visit!

The Chai was great. Thali was not that great and the Mango kulfi wasn’t kulfi but I would call it kind of sorbet and was disappointed. Gulab Jamun was also mini’s. $ 20 for both desserts and quality not good at all.

Food was absolutely delicious. The patio was freezing however and it made it hard to focus on the conversation and the food at times. Would have been nice if they placed the heaters closer to the tables. Food is pricey but worth it, depending on the dish.

Disappointing, food served in canteen like metal plates. Average food despite a promosing menu. No whoa moment. It’s a shame as we had heard a lot of good things about Vij’s

Awesome service and fantastic food. Yummy flavours. The patio was well heated and social distancing was practiced. The noise level from the street was not an issue. Very quiet and peaceful.

To be one of the city's best restaurants, the food had to be on another level..unfortunately i found it bland and flavorless - where's the spice?! The ambiance was nice on the rooftop patio. But honestly would never return, meh food that was overpriced and overhyped for me.

You really can't go wrong with Vij's. I'm a bit of a particular eater, as are my vegan friends, but regardless of the menu, you're always delighted and satisfied. Most importantly, they're taking COVID guidelines for patios very seriously. Let's support our local restaurants. :)

We had high expectations, and they did not fail to far exceed them. Superb cocktails, exciting wine list, and the food is still world class. The charismatic proprietor himself was working the front house, and was a delight to converse with. Still the best after all these years!

Service was awesome, had a lovely older gentleman who was fun to talk to and seemed to know exactly what we were looking for. Everything about the food (and drinks!) was phenomenal, truly no complaints at all. All the staff were super friendly and Mr. Viji himself came over to say hello! Overall wonderful experience and I’ll definitely be back.
