My husband and I really enjoyed our food !
The detail in the presentation It is very nice .
The open kitchen concept give you the chance to see your food getting ready !
We will go again for sure!
Best Indian cuisine I have had in a long time. The dishes were masterfully prepared by Chef Sarath Mohan, who has remained true to his aspirations in bringing Indian street food and curries to the diners. We went for dinner for my father's birthday and we were not disappointed.
lamb was delicious. vegetable rice was
lovely , they do not appear to offer coffee.
Decent place for a quiet dinner night or best place for a date
Que du positif. Nourriture excellente, service courtois et agréable. Une découverte qui fait maintenant partie de mes favoris.
Vivaan has some of the most unique Indian dishes on its menu. Very tasty and sometimes very spicy. The Drums of Heaven are divine. Service is professional and friendly. It has become one of my favourite restaurants in Ottawa.
Go with friends so that the table can sample a variety of dishes
Everything was amazing. Thank you so much!
Amazing food and more than food the service is amazing. Will definitely keep going back.
Excellent and original dishes. Everything very tasty
The ambience was very good and the food was delicious.
Excellent food, service with a quiet ambiance which is good for me.
Everything was delicious. Will be back again! Great service as well.
The food was absolutely amazing. Very large portions. It was very SPICY but terrific. We will be back.
The ambiance was casual and lowkey. We had made a reservation however it seemed like there were several walk-in’s that were able to be seated.
My only negative feedback is that the service was not the best. Our apps and entrees came at the same time, we had to ask for water refills and ask for napkins at the table. However, the restaurant was absolutely packed so we understood. Nonetheless, we would eat here again. Very delicious.
Loved the creative fusion of Indian cuisine with other flavours.
Trendy Place, parking was a menace... food good... large portions.. service very good
Congratulation to this young chef. All dishes well executed and presented, service was impeccable. Five star experience over all. Will come back for sure
Dinners was excellent, a little on the spicy hot side but well worth the experience.
Was simply perfect!
High end Indian restaurant, excentric but good food, somewhat spicy, with a relatively quiet ambiance. Service was impeccable, outstanding, like I have rarely seen. I would recommend this restaurant but only for special occasions.
The food here was really amazing! I’ve been there multiple times and always love everything I try! Would for sure recommend. Thank you ViVaan
Amazing, delicious food. Good service. Great experience.
However, I think the menu could be improved (layout, explanation, ingredients). Even the paper quality could be improved (some menus were stained or wrinkled). It would be nice to see a few pictures (people eat with their eyes, remember). And would be good to know which dishes are the most popular (we noticed the waitress repeating this over and over). This would reduce the amount of time it takes to order items from the menu. It would also help customers see what they’re in for. The music could also be improved (maybe Indian?)
Dahi Puri (9/10, must try)
Dosa (huge crepe) (8/10)
Hyderabadi Katli Dal (yellow lentil virrey with spinach and tamarind) (8.5/10)
Next time we’ll try more recommendations from the wait staff.
By far the best Indian meal we have had…great service and great food.
Very tasty fine Indian cuisine! Will be back
Authentic South Indian cuisine, many of the dishes are from Hyderabad, India where the chef and owner are from. Can’t go wrong with anything.
One of the best! I'll be back soon!
Many great flavors! So many options!
The Drums of Heaven dish was one of the best I have had in years. The curries were less memorable, the sauces lacking oomph. The lamb was tough. The flatbread was excellent and the rice amazingly flavourful. A friend says we should have tried some of the street food on the menu. That's what I will do next time.
First time dining at their new location and it was a fantastic night out. Chic setting (well spaced for current COVID regulations) and attentive, friendly and knowledgeable team. Menu, as ever, doesn't disappoint and is absolutely exquisite.
Cannot fault any aspect of the evening and can't wait to go back soon.
Would definitely recommend it! Unique creative street Indian food. Great choices for vegan and vegetarian diets! Beautifully decorated, open kitchen, very gracious and professional service.
Only the arancini lacked a little flavor, the rest was just delicious.
Lovely spot. Good staff. Enjoyed most but vindaloo was over cooked. Will go back but might avoid that dish.
When we first got there and we informed there was only one glass of white wine available and a few things on the menu weren’t available we were not encouraged. Our thought was send someone to a liquor store for a couple of bottles to get through the night. BUT the food started arriving and it more than made up for the lack of white wine. Each dish was more delicious than the last, with such a variety of wonderful flavours. And the desserts were to die for. The service was amazing. We will definitely be returning and will also be recommending this excellent restaurant to our friends and family.
This was our first time at Vivaan and certainly will not be our last!
We were seated immediately and given our menus. We had previously specified that we were both vegans and the sous chef came to our table to let us know about what food options are vegan, what could be made vegan and what was absolutely not vegan.
Veggie galouti kabob. 9/10
Veggie dosa (its massive) 9.5/10
Pani puri shells (must-try) 9.5/10
Veggie khorma 9/10
Neelgiri mushroom curry 9.5/10
Service was absolutely phenomenal! Wait staff were consistent and never lingered around. She was definitely hustling and also made you feel comfortable.
It was quite marvelous to see how the food was made and the kitchen is overlooked by a high-top bar. Although seating wasn’t available (Covid)
Thank you for an awesome date night!
Superb!!! We will be back!!!
Had an amazing experience! Went for a friend's birthday. Such a classy place.
Absolutely brilliant experience overall. From the food to the ambience to the service, everything was fantastic!
Heard on out it and had to try Vivaan. No regrets. The food and service are excellent!
Excellent food, great service and friendly staff. Will definitely be back!
Food was amazing ! Highly recommend will definitely be coming back!
Very good indian cuisine, spicy just enough.
First time visit and service was friendly. With Covid, difficult to create ambience but it is a warm space. All the food we tried was good although spicy for me even though I asked for mild near the end. Wine and beer selections need much improvement and would prefer Indian music in background vs. the radio. I would go back. If you are on Preston Street, give it a try!
