I've been here a bunch of times and it's always great. I usually don't like popadoms but for some reason I like Palki's. Also the serving staff is always great (shout out to Jeet Singh!).

the food and service was good. they served flat soft drinks. replaced the soft drink with their suggestion that cost $ 4.75. the buffet price is advertised on their website for $12.45 but they charged $14.80 per person. The buffet was limited to chicken for meat dishes. over all price gouging.

Hi KKermani: Thank you for your compliments on our good food and good service. At the same time, we are sorry to hear that you had few issues.

My boyfriend and I have visited Palki's several times. Jeet Singh has served us every time. He is a great server. The food was great and very affordable. From the minute we walked in the door to the time we left, Jeet kept us entertained and took very good care of us. We will keep coming back to this gem... More

There are lots of Indian joints on the North Shore but Palki remains a classic because it's food is great and it likely offers the best value of any of them. The lunch buffet is a great deal and it's more than enough section to satisfy my craving for curry and Naan. I would recommend if your hungry at lunch... More

Great atmosphere and great service tucked into Lonsdale. Food tasked great with options for those who love spice as well as those who want something more mild.

Thank Bryce R

Palki' is a tradition as old as the sub-continent we call India, Pakistan, Bangladesh and Sri Lanka. It is a carriage, painstakingly made of wood, and decorated with fine stones, intricate carving and adorned with fresh flowers and garlands. It is a vehicle we take on the most momentous journeys of our lives, the one we call 'Marriage'. The Palki also took Nobles and Kinsmen on important tours across the country.

Fine Indian cuisine at Palki Restaurant is a similar process. Carefully chosen spices and herbs come together in numerous delicacies both vegetarian and non-vegetarian dishes. One only needs to look at the Menu to appreciate the versatility of traditions that stir up one's taste buds and leave a lingering taste in one's mouth.

Palki has been rated as one of the finest Indian Restaurants in North Vancouver with its unique decor, high-quality dine-in experience, and reliable and tasty take out Indian food delivery service.
