We went to Vij's in Vancouver after we heard several friends recommend it. It could not have been more welcoming. We waited outside in line for fifteen minutes before they opened, but it was worth the wait. We were welcomed with warm chai in handmade mugs and several delightful complimentary appetizers. The lights were low but warm and added a romantic but friendly vibe. The food was a mix of traditional and no traditional Indian-inspired fare. Highly recommended!
