    The food is fabulous and the server was great but we didn’t get the kitchen was very delayed in getting us the food. We made reservations way in advance so they should have known we are a big group. We asked for the food to arrive at once but it was just horrible in that some people waited forever to get their appetizers or didn’t get the rice until the very end which didn’t make sense.

    Vivaan is, by far, the best Indian restaurant in Ottawa. Their offerings change regularly and their commitment to quality, flavours and culinary excellence is unmatched in the city. I can't recommend it enough.

    Probably the best Indian Food that we’ve had! We will be back to sample more. The only thing that I wasn’t as crazy about was the Naan which I found too thin and not chewy enough. The taste was good but I wasn’t that impressed with the texture. Staff was very helpful and attentive. The Butter Chicken w Burrata was crazy amazing! the cocktails were also very good. Definitely recommend Vivaan!!!

    Would not recommend. Very expensive for what you get. Took a while to get seated, even with a reservation. Did not serve basic things like a Lassi. The eggplant dish was tasty and spicy, but essentially was just a sauce with little substance to it. Onion Kulcha was great though. The veg pops were good. Masala Dosa was ok but we've had much better. Only one option for desert and it was pretty horrible and made with toasted bread slices lapped in butter. Wife and I will never go here again.

    The ambiance is interesting. They prepare everything in the same room. The Mohito was delicious as was the chicken and the lamb dishes with the spicy sauces. We also enjoyed the vege side dish.The rice is the staple food on which you add the main dishes. We shared as is traditional.

    Always a pleasure to eat at Vivaan. It was our 4th time dine-in there (plus 2 takeouts). Good food and great service. Vivaan is among our top 3 Indian restaurants in Ottawa, along with Thali and Kochin Kitchen. This time, dosa is great and the ceviche is a fantastic surprise.

    This was our second visit to Vivaan in the last few months. The food both times was excellent - fresh, flavourful and creative. If I were to make one suggestion it would be that they would benefit from a proper tandoori oven - the naan would benefit from it.

    This restaurant badly needs a front-house manager. The food is always great, but there is no music, the lights are too bright, the server is treading water to stay afloat, and the runner brings your sharing dishes without serving spoons. A talented chef in a big kitchen is not a restaurant.

    A unique spin on Indian food that could better from a stronger execution. Chaat paapdi was great, perhaps the burrata was unnecessary but a fun spin on a classic snack. Oysters could’ve been shucked better - we had a hard time getting to the meat. Dosa was good, it’s accompaniments of chutney and sambar could’ve used some more flavour. Shrimp curry was lack lustre and some shrimp were over cooked and others under cooked. The sauce itself was very grainy. Breads (naan and onion kulcha) were fantastic!

    Food delicious, a nice fusion of Indian spice blend! Small portions enough to dine for two- if ordering a few dishes! Recommended for people who like small portions, want to dine in more for experience/taste…..,drinks, appetizers and one or two main courses! PS: furniture is dates. Place needs a but freshening up- paint is too dark.

    Waiters seemed confused and took so long to bring the food out. Asked us if the food for the other table was ours multiple times. Didn’t provide us with water or silverware for at least 45 mins

    The food was very tasty. We got there and they were not ready so they put us in a room by ourselves but we felt isolated rather than private. Service was very slow. I would recommend with said reservations.
