My Husband and I went to the Copper Chimney with great anticipation of celebrating not only Christmas but also our Anniversary. We had seen the Christmas Menu online and it sounded wonderful. However, for $45.00 per person we got: turkey roll, 5 under-cooked vegetables, horrible mashed potatoes, a smear of cranberry chutney and a very tiny round slice of what I believe was stuffing. Awful, we will not go back nor recommend this meal to any of our friends both in BC and the Mainland.

We got a great seat. Weren't served for quite a while. The restaurant set up and ambiance is nice. Portions are really small (I'm sure they could have spared some more rice???) and I think $22 is too much for a lunch meal of butter chicken.

The food was delicious. Delicious. We wanted to try everything. Great place for a date night or a small family celebration, (would be a good place to bring clients). It was busy and the service was a bit slow, but there wasnt any hurry. My only note would be that the wine list was too pricey. We will absolutely go back.

Indian fusion is rare so this a great find in a quiet downtown hotel. There are standard northern Indian specialties, but the fusion dishes are the real attraction. If you like lamb curries this place is for you.

We went for an early dinner, and the smallness of the restaurant surprised us. Looks like an extension of a bar, and this subdued our expectations from those set by past reviews. But once we were seated and the hostess took control, an amazing, satisfying experience unfolded. The food was good, the wine ok, but it was the service that made all the difference. Pleasant and present when needed without being intrusive, and full of helpful and useful suggestions without any sense of imposition. It felt just like home.

I have dined at the Copper Chimney several times now and have tried a different dish each time. The variety of spices and ingredients is quite amazing. Not what you would expect from an Indian restaurant. Koodos to the chefs for creating such a diversified menu.

Vancouver Copper Chimney is a gem next to the Hotel Le Soleil. I Ordered a vegetarian Indian dish which was seasoned just right and cooked to perfection with a variety of vegetables. My husband ordered a salmon entree which he gave the same rave review.

Our waiter was friendly and professional, easily answering our menu questions. I have a shellfish allergy, and this was not a problem for them.

Restaurant walls are unique, very relaxing atmosphere, restaurant seating is very comfortable . Bar area also very inviting and comfortable.

Had read and heard mixed reviews about this place but my girlfriend and I were looking for Indian food nearby and found the Copper Chimney.

With the decor and prices, this place attempts to do slightly upscale Indian fusion. The place was deathly quiet with no vibe even though there was a decent number of seated guests on a Sunday evening.

We weren't starving so we skipped the appetizers and ordered two mains. We ordered the sablefish and the braised short ribs. I must say the food was underwhelming.

The sablefish was definitely off, it was previously frozen as it didn't have that luscious buttery texture and flavour. Essentially, the fish was moderately mushy. The bed of couscous it was perched upon was OK, nothing special, and lacking in flavour.

I was surprised to find the short rib to be dry. Such a fatty cut of meat braised in liquid shouldnt ever be dry but somehow they managed to make it dry. The short rib was served with sambal green beans and some underseasoned mashed potatoes.

At $26 and $24 for the sablefish and short rib respectively, you expect the food to be at least decent. I'd rate the food alone about a 5.5/10 but after factoring in the prices the score drops to a 4.

Service was unobtrusive and slightly inattentive. I had to look around and attempt to make eye contact for about 15 minutes before I could find my server to clear our table and bring the bill.

We had originally planned on having dessert but dinner was so wildly mediocre that we decided to skip it, pay, and go.

It seems others have had better experiences during happy hour but unfortunately I won't be back to give it a try.

The relaxed feel of this place – quiet and warm like the most comfortable lounges - is a great venue for catching up with dear friends while ending a sumtuous Indian fusion dinner. I will definitely keep returning to try more dishes in addition to my standard repertoire. The Garam Masala Steak Naan Flatbread appetizer was an amazing precursor to an outstanding dinner including Lamb Lollipops. The CC 1⁄2 Tandoori Chicken and Butter Chicken dinners also got standouts raves from my friends.

The service was attentive and well-timed; yet, not overbearing with friendly staff seemingly fondly recalling your last visit from many moons ago. The live entertainment wasn't intrusive and added to the overall ambience on a cool rainy spring evening.

The restaurant is lovely and the location great. The food is pretty good but the actually quantify of the main part (curry beef) is quite small, mostly sauce with only a couple pieces of actual meat. Would I return again? Yes because it is tasty but I always leave feeling the restaurant got a better deal than I did.

Let's be clear, traditional Indian food this is not. That out of the way, the food was good. for our party of 5, only one person wasn't happy with their food and that was because the food wasn't spicy enough.

We had the Chai infused creme brulee for dessert and it was absolutely the star of the show.

Next time, we will ask the kitchen to make the food extra spicy, that may help.

Take a good look at the website photograph of CC. Don't be fooled. It's a music lounge turned into a want to be restaurant. Bar on one side and open kitchen on the other. Lounge and Bar seating in the center and meant as a restaurant? Guitarist playing loudly . The ambience meant for a restaurant or bar? . Confused? .A want to be Indian fusion cuisine (like VJs) is just totally out of context. The food quality was average nothing exceptional. Menu prices are on the high side including wines. Service was polite. The strangest F&B set up I have been to. Never be fooled by seeing awards posted on websites. Why bother with making a reservation. It's not a high end 'place' just disguised as one. What a disappointment. I was embarrassed for my guest. Never again. Good luck to those who wish to try ..maybe you might like it!

MY HUSBAND AND I SAW THE RATINGS OF THE "COPPER CHIMNEY" AND THE PICTURES LOOKED INVITING SO WE BOOKED FOR A FRIDAY NIGHT. THE FOOD IS BRILLIANT. THE FRESHEST WILD SALMON (AND TASTY) AND THE CRAB CAKES TOO. OUR SERVER PETRA WAS VERY KNOWLEDGEABLE, KIND AND ATTENTIVE. I BRIEFLY TALKED OT ANOTHER SERVER AND SHE WAS JUST A POPPET TOO. THE LIVE MUSIC WAS BEHIND ME AT THE ENTRANCE ~ A MAN AND HIS ELECTRIC GUITAR ~ HE WAS FABULOUS BUT IT WAS VERY LOUD FOR ME AS I WAS CLOSE ~ BUT WAIT ~ I GENTLY ASKED IF HE COULD TURN IT DOWN AND HE WAS VERY COMPLIANT AND KIND. NEEDLESS TO SAY, I GAVE HIM A NICE TIP WHEN WE LEFT HAPPY AND FULL.

Two ladies for lunch. We came prior the luncheon crowd and advised our waitress we had other commitments in the afternoon and would not linger. As the luncheon crowd started to fill the restaurant, our table was totally ignored. Only one of us received a glass of water - my friend who arrived 5mins after I did was never asked if she wanted water. Our drinks arrived promptly but it took another 10mins to have our order taken. After that we were ignored. I had to ask one of the chefs for coffee and had to search for someone to give us a bill. In the meantime, the business crowd came in after us and were served and left before us. We too were in a hurry but the wait staff were not attentive.
The somas were tasty but the pastry was overdone. The chicken curry wrap & salad were flavorful and generous. Ask for real, non- watered, espresso if you prefer the European process.

Copper Chimney is a true neighbourhood find in downtown Vancouver. I had walked by the restaurant several times and it looked so intriguing to me...we were super excited to finally make a reservation for dinner. The restaurant is cozy and elegant with a very comfortable ambience. Our food came to the table piping hot and the flavours were tremendous with the perfect amount of spice. Our server made some great recommendations. There's even a small outdoor dining area along the sidewalk for the summer months. Would definitely recommend.

It was my first visit at Copper Chimney during Dine Out Vancouver and this place did not disappoint. I heard some great reviews and I wanted to check it out myself. The food was delicious and to top it off, we had live music to enjoy! My favourite dishes of the night include the Seafood Curry and the Chai Infused Creme Brulee.

The place is small but it fills up nicely during dinner time. Service-wise, it was the first night of our server so perhaps she was a bit nervous and overwhelmed, but overall, she helped us out with a smile every time.

I suggest giving this restaurant a try!

I loved the steak naan appy and the tandoori lamb lollipops.

We all look forward to returning for happy hour in the future!

The butter chicken poutine really is good (get it "with chicken").
The decor is nice. We didn't sit at the bar, but it looked like a nice place to hangout if you're into hanging out at bars.
I honestly don't remember much about the service, which is a good sign indicating the service was good. Prices were reasonable. The food was more filling than I expected.
