Fodor's Review

Long lauded as Vancouver's most innovative Indian restaurant, this dining destination, run by genial proprietor Vikram Vij and his ex-wife Meeru Dhalwala, uses local ingredients to create exciting takes on South Asian cuisine. Dishes such as lamb "popsicles" in a creamy curry or BC rainbow trout served with a wheat berry pilaf are far from traditional but are beautifully executed. Mr. Vij frequently circulates through the room, which is decorated with nods to India's diverse cultures, greeting guests and suggesting dishes or cocktail pairings. Expect to cool your heels in the lounge sipping chai or a cold drink while you wait an hour or more for a table, but if you like creative Indian fare, it's worth it. In the summer, head to the rooftop patio for predinner snacks and a collection of inventive tropical cocktails.
