So excited to get back to Vij's, post-covid. Everything was absolutely spot on. Friendly, efficient service (including a couple of visits from Vikram Vij himself), incredible food (including a couple of complimentary bite-sized appetizers), beautiful ambience, comfortable seating and temperature. We'll be back again as soon as we can!

La nourriture était excellente! Mention spéciale pour le poulet curry-coco. Le service est impeccable et le chef vient même s’assurer de nous saluer et de nous donner nos commentaires. Je recommande ce restaurant sans aucun doute un des meilleurs indiens que j’ai mangé.

The food was good and we appreciated the free snacks at the beginning of the meal. Servers were efficient. The naan was heavenly. I miss the glamour of old location on Granville Street.

I haven't been to Vij's in nearly 7 years and I was so happy to come back and be served a meal that was consistently delicious with my memories. And it's always nice to have Vij come say hello and give his thanks, makes the customer feel like their business is genuinely appreciated by the restaurant.

Food was good, but not exceptional. Service was both rushed and disjointed at the same time.

Lovely meal but the kitchen was slow. Waited nearly 1 hour for our mains to arrive. Our kind server was extremely apologetic and our company made the time fly but still, the wait was not acceptable.

Loved it. Delicious food. Incredibly well balanced - spice, but with depth and great combinations of flavours. And the service was spectacular - friendly, prompt, helpful, fun.

In summary: food was good, but many aspects of the restaurant’s service was poor.

Our server (didn’t catch his name, but a older man with glasses and a medium length beard) made our dining experience poor. I’m not expecting Alfred from Batman, but this server couldn’t be bothered to answer basic questions I had about dishes. I asked what the lamb curry was like compared to the beef dish and he said verbatim “one has lamb, one has beef. I have eaten both of them. It depends if you like lamb or beef.”

Once the food came, it was delicious. Only have good things to say about the actual food. However it did take a very long time for the food to arrive. A minor point but keep that in mind if you are looking for a quick dining experience.

Looking forward to this but our appy was so peppery we couldn’t eat it. The sauces were not as good as last time. Seems like a different cook. For this price it should be better.

Amazing from the moment we walked in the door. Great service and recommendations from the entire team. The food was incredible. The flavours were so different, and so good. Get the lamb popsicles. My only problem is the tables were too small.

A great take on Indian food. Well spiced (although a little hot for my wife), nice presentation. Service was good, but a little slow. A bit pricey, especially for an Indian restaurant, but the food is not your typical Indian fare.

Fabulous as always . Six of us out together for the first time in a while . Too much chatter between us to select our order so our waiter offered to do it . We let him and it was perfect ! Every dish was a hit . Service was "over the top" good !

The service was very poor, meaning that we had to wait quite a while for appetizers and then had to reach out to the manager for the table to be cleared and for us to order our next course. I don’t know whetherthey were understaffed but it was disappointing as the food was outstanding as always.

Food was excellent, flavourful, tasty and more than we could eat.
The server forgot to bring my daughter-in-law's beer, she did when reminded, and my granddaughter's appetiser, too late once everyone was served so we just wanted to make sure it wasn't included on the bill.
There were 6 of us and we were placed at a table with 3 people having the sun in their eyes. Perhaps the table could be placed lengthwise rather than along the window? Next time we will ask for a table on the other side of the room. All the servers were pleasant and as I said the food was absolutely delicious.
