While Vij's main restaurant is living off it's name, this food truck is a great option to enjoy some select options with great value for money. The mogo fries are fantastic! You can find them on Burrard/Georgia during weekday lunch, or at the NVan Shipyards...More

I just picked up the Bengali chickpea squash and potato curry on rice with naan and this is so inedible. Strong flavour of vomit. Couldn't eat it I was excited to try this food truck as I love Indian cuisine but will not go back.

Any of Vij's food outlets are worth going to. This is a family who takes great pride and hard work to make sure their products are first class and you never feel rushed in them (squeezed in maybe, but not rushed).

Did not disappoint! The butter chicken schnitzel curry with naan rocked! One can tell why there is a line outside the food truck and for reservations at the restaurant. When in Vancouver, find this food truck and enjoy some excellent food!

While visiting Vancouver, we wanted to visit one of Vij's restaurants but didn't have the time so decided to hit his food truck instead. Butter chicken schnitzel. If I could eat this every day, I would. DELICIOUS!
