This is a popular Indian restaurant. They don't take reservations so the wait can be a while. But it is worth it. The food is delicious and a twist on regular Indian cuisine. Truly enjoyed it. I went to Vancouver for a meeting and glad...More

We normally stay away from "celebrity chefs" spots, preferring authentic small places. However, we've received so many recommendations about Vij's from such diverse group of people, we had to try it out. The parking on the street is a bit of a pain, so budget...More

Fantastic food - classic Indian with a little twist, but in a tasty and not distracting way. Flavors were good with just the right amount of heat. Was it the best Indian food on the continent? I wouldn't go that far, but still excellent. Worth...More

We had supper at Vij's on Granville Island last year. The only negative was the long wait, but it was summer and we got to sit outside and wait. While we waited we had a cocktail, and enjoyed many yummy snacks compliments of the restaurant....More

After hearing almost everybody we told that we were headed to Vancouver for the weekend tell us that we HAD to eat at Vij's, we decided all our friends can't be wrong. The line begins to form around 4:30, if you end up in line,...More

what a great dining experience. A long wait to get seated, so get reservations and cross your fingers. It's worth it.

South Granville
The neighbourhood closest to the airport, a generous
mix of locals and tourists populate the area. The
blend has made it a go-to spot to find an eclectic
collection of entertainment, from theatres and
cinemas, to antique stores and last-minute kitsch
souvenir shops. It gives off a transient vibe, and is
one of the more higgledy-piggledy areas in terms of
what you'll find, making it a fun area to explore and
