ClAloo Tiki Cholle is divine. (Note to self: get that again.) Uttapam looks like Indian pizza but is deep friend bread with cilantro on top. Lamb Biryani is very filling and tasty but you have to eat around bones and gristle. Tandoori chicken is good and comes with good lentils, rice, chapati and raita (a cooling cucumber/yogurt)--quite a lot to... More

Vik's is a cafeteria style Indian food restaurant that exceptionally good. There s a wide selection of Chaat foods to choose from, and they are very reasonably priced. One of the better restaurants in Berkely.

Vik's is both a superb grocery store and a sit-down and take-out restaurant. The whole place smells like the most wonderful Indian food. Good luck selecting a pastry or two from the gorgeous display case! We bought some treats to eat in the restaurant area and some pastries to take away, and also bought some items in the grocery.

Gotta join in the love-fest here: Vik's is a real treasure for the community. Casual, bustling place with tons of bargain-priced choices. Order lots of stuff and experiment. Good mix of Indian and other clientele, friendly (if occasionally confusing) service... Just a really fun dining experience. And don't overlook the fascinating grocery store up front!

If you like S. Indian food this place is definately a great spot to go. There aren't fancy table linens or things of that nature. Probably not a place to go for the ambience either because it appears to be in an industrial area and it is also connected to the grocery store. Great dosas, chaat and pooris....oh, and the... More

Vik's Chaat has some awesome gluten free Indian food. I strongly recommend the gluten free vegetarian dosa (available only on the weekends) and the gluten free pakora. The soup that comes with the dosa is filling and perfectly spiced. If you have a couple bucks get a chai (small but worth it). My non-gluten free meat-eater boyfriend loves the lamb... More

The line was out the door so we almost didn't stay. It went fast and I'm glad we did. There is dedicated parking and lots of street parking. We ordered 6 different dishes so we could try different tastes. The flavors were amazing. The place smelled good, was clean, lots of seating, and efficient staff. The only negative was that... More

Indian food at its best. This is not a fancy place. Very clean and you must get the big puffy thing as its so good and like nothing you ever had. The drinks are very good also. Lots of other places to check out on 4th street 5 blocks north. And if its a weekend go to Urbana and get... More

So having grown up in New Delhi and traveled India eating chaat where ever I have been, I am never fully satisfied by any of the try places that I've tried. Usually there are some dishes that are great but others that fall flat on their face. Now I've been visiting Vicks chaat for the last 12 years and the... More
