Having grown up in the UK, I know my way around an Anglo-Indian curry menu, but living now in the US I don't get too many opportunities for a good curry. This was absolutely excellent - probably the first pakora I've eaten in ten years. Flavours were all bold and fresh, the aroma was heaven. Thorough recommended.

Dinner for 3 last night here was fantastic. Small inside, no tables available do we opted to sit outside. There was a heater and blankets available. This is a walk in restaurant that doesn't take bookings. We shared the Lentil paneer & chickpea Samosas for starters. Then the Portobello mushroom red curry, the Beef Short Ribs and the Lamb with Cumin curry. All came with rice and naan bread. Seriously good Indian Food. Loved it. We can see why it's so popular. Our waiter from Edmonton (sorry I can't remember your name) chased us down the street when we had forgotten our leftovers which were packed for us to take home. Thanks again!

Lots of Indian restaurants produce a weird genre of Indian food with lots of creamy sauce and throwing in a mixture of spices into their "curries"
Vij's Rangoli is different. The flavour, taste and quality of food is pretty close to home cooked Indian food. The presentation is simple and nice.
Waiting time is optimally right, and the price and portion sizes are proportionate.
Overall 8.5 to 9 out of 10.

Four of us (two couples), had lunch at Vij's after touring Stanley Park....we were hungry. We're both well experienced with Indian cuisine and Vij's goes to the top of the list. The food is excellent and creative. When we asked why they served dahl with pakoras instead of the traditional chutneys, their answer was "Why not? Isn't it good?" And it surely was. Also try their desert rhoti...that filled any empty spots we had.
Plus the service is great and the wait staff are very engaging. Nice selection of beer and wine and very reasonably priced for the quality of the food.
