We ordered from James Street for our baby boys baptism and they out did themselves. The portions were huge, the taste was so good and they were so easy to work with. Highly recommend this place for dine in or to cater your next event.

We ordered wings pili pili and Machi Bhaat we enjoyed both those dishes. Machi Bhaat serving is very generous, 3 people can eat from it. The ladies bathroom was very dirty. Overal good food, Friday night entertainment is great. I would recommend this restaurant.

Was in Vancouver on business and decided to have dinner here with a colleague. Ordered shrimp masala that came with rice and naan. The shrimps were jumbo and probably more than ten. Buddy ordered chicken curry with rice and naan. Great service by Bisus.
