Indian, Where to Dine since 2005. Best Indian, <br/><br/>magazine since 1996. Vij’s superb, home-cooked Indian fare evolves at whim, with a menu that changes frequently. Regulars rave over the lamb “popsicles.” Wonderful vegetarian dishes, too. No reservations. $$-$$$. D (daily).

Awesome!: I love, love, love this place. It's good to get there early as you often have to line up, but they bring you treats while you wait, and they bring you samples inside as well. Food is FABULOUS! And "modern Indian."

Vij's doesn't take reservations, as is apparent by the line outside every night, but patrons huddled under the neon sign don't seem to mind since they're treated to tea and papadums (a thin bread made from lentils). Inside, the decor is as warm and subtle as the seasonings, which are all roasted, hand-ground, and used with studied delicacy. The menu changes monthly, though some of the more...

Rightly considered one of the world’s preeminent Indian restaurants, Vij’s draws epicures, travelling culinary enthusiasts, and effusive praise from the Food Network to the New York Times. Finely nuanced interpretations of contemporary Indian cuisine conjure brightly coloured, intensely flavoured creations—plump B.C. spot prawns served with halibut and black chickpeas in coconut lemon curry...
