How many restaurants are either "operated or affiliated" to a big name chef who is no where to be found. Vikram Vig is one of Canada's most famous chef's but is at the door to great you and around to all of the tables to chat and make sure everything is going well. No only is the food excellent, but the personal service service is even better. Like Vikram say's visiting his restaurant is like visiting is home, and he really means it!

This innivative restaurant is like dining in ViJ's own home...although they do not take reservations, while you are waiting for your table, you are served hors d'oeuvres and chai. The menu is filled with wonderful delights that are quite different from most Indian fare. Like the Lamb Popsicles and Jack Fruit dishes.
I highly recommend this wonderful dining experience, especially if you like surprises and unusual combinations in this genre of the foody world.

The place was packed and so many wonderful fragrances as we entered the front door. We were seated in the bar till a table was cleared. As we waited the hostess would wonder by with trays of appetizers to nibble on. Great wine list. We love the goat dish! The braised ribs were fantastic. Overall wonderful experience.

They still do not take reservations. If you don't mind waiting, the food and service is excellent. It just isn't always my go-to year-round due to unknown wait times outdoors.

According to my Indian friends, if you're looking for the stuff Mom makes, this is not for you. But it's great creative indian food :) Go early or be prepared to wait a long time.
