    Bibiji 2.0 was worth the wait. The new spot is gorgeous with a fun, hip vibe and the food is as good as ever. We will be back often.

    Cauliflower, potato-pea fritters & lamb chops were delicious. Our other dishes were pretty good, but unfortunately overly salty. The kitchen would do well to significantly decrease the salt content.

    In my opinion you get a better value if your come for lunch rather than dinner. Not only you get less food and less attention from your server at dinner time on a Friday night, but because there are more people it is so noisy it is hard to have a conversation with your companion. On the other hand, the past 3 or 4 times we came for lunch (with our 3 and 6 year olds) we had full attention from the server, food was plenty (for example, an entry included rice as opposed to the same food at dinner time) and it was quiet, few customers at that time.

    I think Bibi Ji was ok. The food didn't seem that special. The price point seemed high for foot that was just OK.

    So sad that menu has been reduced. No halibut and no farmers salad. Naan was soggy. Not sure what has happened- used to be so great!

    We had an excellent meal at BiBi Ji. Daniel was friendly, knowledgeable, and open with recommendations. The ambiance lent itself to comfort and familiarity.
