I love, love, love this place. It's good to get there early as you often have to line up, but they bring you treats while you wait, and they bring you samples inside as well. Food is FABULOUS! And "modern Indian."

"Consummate restaurateur" Vikram Vij presides over this "very popular" South Granville "destination" where the "enormously satisfying" Indian cooking exhibits an "unrivalled" "depth of flavours" and the "warm", "festive" atmosphere feels like a "private party", complete with "attentive" servers; on the downside, no reserving means inevitable "long waits", but fans insist it's "so worth it",... more

At Vancouver's most innovative Indian restaurant, genial proprietor Vikram Vij and his wife Meeru Dhalwala use local ingredients to create exciting takes on South Asian cuisine. Dishes such as lamb "popsicles" in a creamy curry, spot prawns served with a wheat berry pilaf, or roasted eggplant and butternut squash with black chickpeas are far from traditional but are beautifully executed.

Vij's doesn't take reservations, as is apparent by the line outside every night, but patrons huddled under the neon sign don't seem to mind since they're treated to tea and papadums (a thin bread made from lentils). Inside, the decor is as warm and subtle as the seasonings, which are all roasted, hand-ground, and used with studied delicacy. The menu changes monthly, though some of the more... more

I've been to Vij's twice now.. the first time it was amazing! But this second time, it wasn't that good. I have to give it a third chance!

Try the lamb popsicles! soooooooooooooooo good!

It's super awesome that naan and rice are brought out fresh! The servers notice you're running out, so they bring you more. Love that!

Very self-satisfied and complacent restaurant. Noisy and crowded. Westernized Indian-ish food, but not at all good Indian cuisine. No reservations, often long waits

Indian, Where to Dine since 2005. Best Indian,

magazine since 1996. Vij’s superb, home-cooked Indian fare evolves at whim, with a menu that changes frequently. Regulars rave over the lamb “popsicles.” Wonderful vegetarian dishes, too. No reservations. $$-$$$. D (daily).
