Outstanding service, atmosphere and food. Really just extraordinary! Be sure to try the naan with crickets (I forget the specific name of the dish) but it is really tasty, almost like black beans. They are ground up and you can't tell at all that they're crickets.

Our neighbors recommended Vij's restaurant in Vancouver B.C. It's the BEST EVER! If you've never had Indian cuisine, this is the place to start. The mushroom in creamy potato curry is so comforting and tasty, I promise you will lick the bowl clean. The nan that accompanies the dish comes out hot and melts in your mouth. My husband had the pork tenderloins & back ribs in coconut curry and I had their famous lamb popsicles. The pork was okay, but the lamb was to die for! All dishes comes with basmati rice and nan.

The restaurant is very cool and nicely decorated. It's a great place to take a date or family dinner. The only bad thing is that they don't take reservations. Wait time is usually from 30-45 minutes, but they have a cool bar in the back where you can wait and have a cocktail or two. The other cool thing is that as you're waiting for your table, the waitresses comes around with some tasty h'or douvres for you to sample. Yummy!

A little more pricey than expected, but the service was awesome, and the food amazing. A must-do for anyone visiting Vancouver.
