I discovered Vik's years before it moved to it's current location. When it was just in a warehouse like space around the corner. I go here every single time I'm in Berkeley. It's delicious, fresh, JUST SO DAMN GOOD. Try anything. My favorite? The Vegetable Dosa with a Mango Lassi on the side. If you get a Dosa make sure... More

This place is located in Berkeley a little out there from the busiest spots. The menu is posted as well as printed with pictures and a brief explanation of the food. You order at the counter, Pay for your meal and drinks and then look for a table where to sit. When your food is ready they call out your... More

I tried the pani puri and chole chaat. They were very nice. Would go there again and recommend it to anyone. Except for an instance of rude behavior by a couple of people rest of the staff including the manager/owner were pretty nice.

This is a "must" stop for us on our trips to Berkeley. You cannot order wrong here so do not stress about the menu if the words and food are unfamiliar to you! Everything is delicious and different. This is a great place to go with several people so you can eat family style - sharing and debating which plates... More

Gone there for South Indian food. Good food. Gives a feel of Indian canteen. Thalis are also good. Looking for chaat in Berkeley, this is the place.

Remember when Vik's was still housed in a former auto garage? I'm addicted to their masala dosa. The downside is that it is now $9.50 and a mango lassi is $4.50
