The assortment was very nice. The food is slightly spicy so I would recommend choosing dishes that are not spicy.

I am a little bit disappointed with the menu. However, I am told that there is a new chef and am hoping that this will improve the selection. I used to love their menu and then they dropped favourites and changed other standbys. The staff is fabulous and the venue is lovely. They need to improve the selection.

Thank-you very much for the review and return business. Yes, the team is correct we have a new (award winning!) Chef and will be updating the menu again before the fall. Let's see if we can get more stars from you later this year?

Disappointing we could not get a table upstairs. I like the food, however the nosie level downstairs is too high to comfortably carry on a good conversation. They should always have the upstairs area open for people who prefer a quieter area.

The food was over rated and costly. The so called fusion food was mediocre. Calls for booking made twice remained unreturned. The staff was a bit matter of fact and not as cordial as one would expect at an Indian restaurant.

From the moment we arrived for our rezzo, Sid (the manager) was all-welcoming! The space is beautiful, dimly lit, and spacious so that tables still have privacy for conversation. The menu was filled with delicious entrees, and the kitchen team was fantastic at their craft. I tried my first “gin sour” as per recommendation, the Empress Gin was a delightful treat. We celebrated my daughter’s fourth birthday this particular evening, and they made sure to treat my little one with an amazing candle lit dessert. I’d highly recommend this spot to all lovers, AND newcomers to Indian cuisine! Thanks again, Sid!

My friend and I each ordered a assortment dish to try various items. It was served in one big container. They only had 3 small wedges of Naan bread, which I wondered how they figured 2 orders equaled 3 pieces of naan. The server asked if we'd like more bread and we said yes. We were given 4 small wedges of Naan and charged $5. I felt the food was over cooked and only really liked the chicken.

This has been our third visit to Copper Chimney over the years and we were not disappointed! The occasion was the visit of our daughter attending a conference in Vancouver over this weekend. We ordered the tandoori platter. The meal was a delight to the palate as we sampled the salmon, prawns, chicken & kebabs. For a starter we had the calamari kaporas which were light, airy and crunchy. Deserts were delicious: macaroons and an Indian spiced creme brulee. To accompany the previous was a bottle of Luigi Bosca malbec from Argentina. We had a 7:15pm reservation but left a few hours later. The ambiance was mellow as I suspect a lot of people were at the Canada Rugby 7s. Our service by Mark was excellent and he even had time for a bit of non-food related conversation. A good evening of food and company!

After waiting more than 30 minutes to get seated. They put us in this awkward table in the corner... beside the door, in the hallway and the bar behind us. We asked to be moved so after another 30 minutes we got better seats.... ordered food and 1 bottle of wine and almost 1 hour later our food finally came out. The wine was gone before any appys or food in our table. Food was ok but to charge $8.00 for mixed vegetables- sautéed beans and onion is unreal. Ambience was nice but if you want Indian food. There’s better place out there !!! Definitely won’t come back.

Food was awesome! Salmon and lamb were tender. I loved the tandoori prawn - had a kick to it.
But the menu was hard to read. It was too dark and the prints were too small to read in the dark. Had to squint to read the menu.
Waitress was very nice and attentive. Service was amazing.
But we can tell she forgot to include 1 order that didn’t come out with the other 4 dishes. Maybe if she repeat the order? But I would still give her 5 star for her service!
