Because our regular favourite Indian Cuisine Restaurant is closed for renovation, my wife and I decided to try another local Indian restaurant in Vancouver. We ordered takeout that was delivered within the promised 45 minutes. Unfortunately, we were quite disappointed. Food actually didn’t taste bad but much less flavourful than what we are used to. Also, it seemed like most... More

Decided to have lunch with my teenage daughter on Canadian Thanks giving Monday at this location. We got there early at opening and were seated at a beautiful table near the window side. Service was great, spontaneous and attentive, I ordered the Butter Chicken (for me a great measuring dish for quality) well it was the worst butter chicken I... More

Handi was a good choice for Indian fare given that we were enroute to Horseshoe Bay to pick up friends from the BC Ferry. We enjoyed a leisurely repast of naan, Fish Pakoras followed by butter chicken and prawn korma.

We chanced upon this restaurant on our way to the Horseshoe Bay Ferry because we needed to get to over the Lion's Gate Bridge. One key attribute is that it is open from 11 am to the evening. Even though 2 couples dined alone in the restaurant the food was freshly prepared. We had a sampling of lamb and prawns... More

Handi Cuisine of India is a real find. We, ourselves, virtually stumbled upon it, down on the waterfront in sleepy West Vancouver. Our expectations were for a pleasant luncheon only. Instead we feasted on some of the best Indian food we've ever eaten. It is a small, unpretentious space, bright and clean. In early afternoon on a Friday -- midway... More

Aromatic spices and food. Highly recommend the tandoori halibut house special as it is served with naan, basmati and vegetable curry and a delicious salad. Similar to many other indian restaurants with little distinction. Service could be improved as the order that we requested was not exactly what we expected. Chana was aromatic but lacked the spice/heat expected. I would... More

We shared a bottle of wine--the Tinhorn Creek Gewürztraminer which went well well with the Butter Chicken and the sizzling Lamb dish. Beautiful rice,chutney, and raita also added to a super experience and I'm telling friends this is our new go-to place. Thank you Rohan for such great service!

I cannot believe this restaurant has been there for two years and I never noticed it. The ambiance is warm, cozy and intimate..... the staff, especially Rohan are delightful. Rohan was so courteous and eager to please.... and the food was fantastic! I had the best butter chicken I have ever had..... it is my litmus test of Indian restaurants... More

After several visits, decided to give up returning. The kitchen does a wonderful job with sauces, but where is the meat. Repeatedly we have found a bare existence of Lamb, Chicken or any other meat described on their menu, probably 2 or 3 ounces per dish, Instead expect to fill up on Naan and Rice and enjoy the sauces, they...
