I love this place. What is refreshing is that the service and the quality of the food is always consistent and great. We visit this place at least once a week. The food and endless cups of tea make this place a winner for us.

Not much to look at, and eating in is pretty basic, but Safari makes perhaps the best samosas in Burnaby and they're easy to access right on Canada Way near Deer Lake. Call ahead and your order will be waiting for you. The sauces are...More

Doesn't look like much in an unassuming tiny strip mall, but the food and the service are a complete delight
