Extremely yummy food.
I was very full when I left.
The flavors and offerings were more complex than other places where I have eaten similar food.

We’ve been going to Rangoli and now Vijs for many years. We love the food , service,and ambiance . I hope that after this Covid thing passes that Vij will be back in full form and with many more years of fulfilling diners stomachs and taste buds with the probably the most delicious high quality Indian food anywhere.

Vij’s provides the most wonderful ambiance and assortment of flavours. I first tried Vij’s 4 years ago and have been waiting for the perfect occasion to return! I’d be there everyday if I could.

Remind yourself how good it feels to dine out at Vig's

That's what the visit to their light and airy patio did for our party. It was a coming out of Covid (carefully) get together for 4. The appetisers were so good and plentiful that we could only manage to order the amazing lamb popsicles for the main and we were done! Although there was supposed to be a 2 hour time limit for capacity reasons we never felt rushed and could have stayed longer. The delicate multi-leveled spicing still lingers in my memory. The service was intelligent, caring and attentive but not in your face. I am anticipating a return visit to refresh myself on the rest of the amazing menu.

Hi, the evening was great. I did note to the server that the crust around the samosa was not cooked and that item was promptly removed from the bill. The trout was a little salty. Overall it was a really great, fun evening and experience!

Amazing food as always. The chicken kababs and the Punjabi Goat Curry were spectacular. I wish that complimentary Papdi Chaat was on the menu and the Thalis that were missing from the menu in the patio.

The only thing that was a bit less than spectacular was the Chickpea on Kale - it was just regular choley and not worth the price. Could have been sexier.

One recommendation to Vikram - how about a paan at the end of the meal? ;)
