    The server was great and we were quickly accommodated downstairs when it was too warm upstairs which was a blessing. Wine was great, ambiance was great, but the food not so much. We were quite a large group and had feedback from most of them that the food they ordered was just ok, not outstanding or something special. Quite a shame because I've been here many times before, always had the butter chicken and always enjoyed it.

    My friends and I love the food and service there. Only thing I find the place not suitable for big groups due to table seating. There were 6 of us and we find it crowded in a small table. And most of the tables are just the same. Other than that, it was a great place to dine.

    I eat at the Copper Chimney frequently for lunch since I work in the neighbourhood, and once in awhile for dinner. The food is consistently very good, not a huge menu but varied and updated occasionally. The wait staff are attentive and will bring extra chutney or dips to the table. We took a friend here for dinner on Friday night. The live musician was a nice treat and the sound didn't compete with our conversation. The decor is dark wood with some booth and bench seating. Comfortable for an evening to relax with good food and good friends. Lunch is served quickly (within the hour) without feeling rushed.

    Excellent varied menu+wine list-fairly priced. Ambiance is lovely, attention was taken with the decor of this beautiful restaurant and you could easily have a conversation without shouting! Our young server was pleasant, attentive and as gracious as could be. She and another server were extremely efficient and hard working which added to the enjoyment of the meal. We had the bread appetizer- assorted(plain and with fillings) which was excellent and plentiful,with a delicious dip. A bit of chutney was brought to us which was perfect. The crab cake entree and chicken Cobb dinner salad were excellent and fresh. We had not one complaint and remarked that if this restaurant was located on Robson you would not be able to get in the door.

    Our server was extremely knowledgeable about all of the dishes; made great recommendations; and made our entire dinner truly enjoyable. Food came out in a reasonable amount of time, drinks were delicious - gotta love a good Hendricks, and their drink special for the day was affordable and tasty (Blue Lagoon). This is my kind of fusion restaurant - rather than simply throwing food from two cultures together, it was complementary tastes/flavours working together. It was also nice to be able to choose from one culture or another (I went traditionally Indian), and not feel that every item on the menu was a fusion dish just for the sake of it.

    My girlfriend and I absolutely love this place! It was built to give ur an old age historical look and they did a great job! We had the samosas, beet salad and butter chicken and our palates were tingling from the perfect blend of spices! Our waitress was the best we've ever had, being so intuitive without being invasive. The recommended vanilla caramel dessert was by far the best we've ever had!

    My partner and I booked a table at the Copper Chimney for our Valentines dinner. Upon arriving at the restaurant we were greeted and quickly seated. The ambience and decor was nice, however we found our server to be overly attentive which was bordering on inappropriate when we were trying to have a romantic night together. The food was nice but not spectacular and was incredibly over priced for what we got. Overall, our whole experience was disappointing. We wont be going back.

    After a very tasty lunch of their chicken wrap (fantastic, great naan) , I came back again but was very disappointed. Bottomline, the lunch special was lacking in quantity and taste. It was pretty obvious it was the "special". I was so looking forward to the curry chicken only to get a plate with way too much bare space on it! They weren't even generous with the rice! As for the curry chicken, it was barely warm in temperature and lacked much of any flavor. Very surprised.

    We were here for DineOut Vancouver with the set menu. It was quiet for a Sat night, but the ambience was comfortable, warm and friendly for a date night. The live keyboard was a nice touch, though a little kitschy, we didn't mind that he played oldies classics. The food was quite good. Though the starter salad was plain, the mains, a fallapart rib roast with asparagus and a prawn curry, were both delicious. The side of onion rings was also great (what was that awesome dipping sauce?!) The paired wine was perfect and affordable. Recommended.

We definitely will be back to experience your regular menu. Thank you so much!

    Pros: Excellent live jazz performer. Seated at a large table including a booth. My friend liked the salad and pakora curry. Desserts (both creme brulee and spicy chocolate cake). Cons: Near the washrooms = lots of traffic in the adjacent hotel hallway. Candle on the table that spontaneously sparks. Our request for a cup of warm water was forgotten and finally came with a piece of lint floating in it. Waited an hour before appies and entrees arrived simultaneously. Salt mint lassi was the least likable (acquired taste). Tiger prawns weren't fresh. Nan bread was flat and dry. The chick-pea-battered onion rings we ordered on the side were too heavy tasting (for me). Cumin fries were forgettable. Hope others have better experiences.

    A thoroughly enjoyable experience. Food was good, they provided a reasonable option for lower priced wine but still had a comprehensive selection if you wanted to pay more. A pleasant surprise was an entertainer able to entertain without being intrusive or overwhelming conversation. Staff was very attentive, pleasant, and knowledgeable. Nice atmosphere, and comfortable seating. All in all a reasonably priced evening out that to our group of five represented very good value.

    This hidden gem is a real find. Room is both eclectic and appealing every way. DineOut Vancouver menu was imaginative and delicious. Star of the show was the service provided by the talented and accommodating hostess, Wanita, not to mention the live entertainment provided by a jazz and blues guitarist. They pull out all the stops to make this a thoroughly pleasant dining experience.

    We went on a Friday evening for Dine-Out. It is appears to be a combination of bar and restaurant in one. The portion sizes were on the smaller scale and would rate starter, entree and dessert, all fair. Our server was very nice and pleasant but over attentive. I am not sure if this was because there were not a lot of other customers so she was keeping herself busy, but found she was trying to be part of our dining visit rather than giving us time to visit amongst ourselves. Too many other restaurants downtown that I would prefer and recommend - in comparison to all categories.

    Dined on 12/25/2013
    We selected an Indian restaurant on Christmas specifically to avoid the "traditional" approach. We were a little shocked to discover that Copper Chimney had created a special Christmas menu, which we had no interest in. We ended up ordering off the regular menu (which was only provided when we requested it) and were a little disappointed with the limited selection. What we did order (for the most part) was very good. But it wasn't good enough to warrant the prices they charged. We won't be going back.

    We went with a group of 8 and had good attentive service with a smile and desire to help. The food was excellent and more authentic in terms of Indian style than many other places that offer a meat gravy with raw spice. The only complaint was the décor and music (rather loud holiday music) not really in keeping with the food being served.

    My first visit to Copper Chimney for a business lunch. First off the ambience is rich at the same time welcoming. The staff are lovely and the food was excellent. If you work in the area, stop in and get your re-usable stainless steel take out lunch pail--which CC will refill for you in the mornings. What a great idea!! I will be returning for dinner with friends soon.

    There are about 3 - 4 people in the restaurant. I read reviews on Urbanspoon and it sounded good. Our two servers were genuinely great so we stayed the course. The food arrived warm at best, quite flavorless (we know good Indian food being from Seattle), and it looked as though the cook was bored and didn't really have his heart, mind, or integrity in the cooking. A very disheartening meal. The tandoori salmon was overcooked and lukewarm, the beet "salad" had no flavor. Being later in the evening we just wanted to be done and go so we didn't attempt to get satisfaction for our meal. Even though our server/bartender was wonderful she mixed such a bad negroni and brought me extra sweet vermouth to put in it!

My friend (who has been to India) said that the food she had here was the closest thing she had tasted to real Indian food. And that's saying A LOT. Would definitely recommend it to anyone. They have live music on the weekends and it just adds to the enjoyment of it all.

    I had an Entertainment book coupon and went there with my husband for my birthday. The food is Indian fusion and was very good. It was a little more expensive than I was expecting, but very reasonable with the coupon. The atmosphere was great with a live artist, Jeff Johnson, singing and playing guitar. He played songs by Adele, Coldplay, Train, Jack Johnson, etc. which was perfect for dinner music. Even though I had a coupon, the server still gave us a dessert on the house for my birthday. Would totally go back and recommend to others!
