This family run place has a wide variety of Indian dishes and of course, will customize the spice level to suit the diner. We have eaten here many times and enjoyed it each time. Food is tasty, portions are ample, and dinner comes hot . There is ample street parking right in front, too!

The delivery guy swore at us for opening the door late. DO NOT ORDER FROM THESE PEOPLE THEY ARE COMPLETELY UNPROFESSIONAL AND THEIR FOOD IS NOT WORTH IT. I tried reporting to the restaurant but nothing was done, apart from a joke of an apology from the so called manager

Had the paneer makhani and rice and garlic nann. It was very yummy. The lady was nice. Will definitely come again some time soon.

This place has some of the best Indian food in Vancouver. I eat here about once a week. I usually get the paneer makhani-- It's sort of like butter chicken, but with paneer instead of chicken. The garlic naan is THE BEST. Friendly service and good prices.

Great food, lovely owners and servers. Consistently delicious. It's definitely worth the visit. Usually spend 35$ between two people with lots of leftovers for the next day. Basically 4 servings.

Just had dinner in this little gem. Doesn't look too much from the outside but had a great overall experience. It was absolutely spotless inside, service was very good and very prompt. I ordered the butter chicken and my gf ordered the chicken tikka masala. You have the option to get the dishes mild, medium or spicy , we opted... More

We had eaten at the same location many years back and thought to give the latest incarnation a try. The premises were not in particularly good state; the entrance was very dark; we almost thought it was closed if it weren't for the "open" sign. The dining area looked only marginally better with drywall coming off, and area needed to... More

Since arriving in Vancouver we have been searching for a great Indian take away, we've tried about four and this one is the best we've had so far. The food is nice and fairly reasonably priced and delivery time is short. We live quite far from the restaurant but they still delivered to us, for a fee of $10. If... More

The food is great. Hands down some of the best Indian for that price - and the prices are very fair. My only knock on the place is the customer service and the interior of the restaurant. My server is always good but my wife and I have been going there to dine in for 2-3 years and the owners... More

The empty dining room the Saturday evening was visited was certainly not because of the food but, we leaned, more due to an increase in delivery and takeout business as the makeup of the neighborhood has changed since they opted their door in the 1980s. The vegetable somosas and garlic naan were light and tasty. Our eggplant bharta entrees, one... More

Staying in Little India / Punjabi Market

Neighbourhood Profile
Little India / Punjabi Market
Little India has changed in recent years. While some view it as a declining neighbourhood due to emigration and competition, it is still the original site of the Punjabi Market, and an epicentre for Indo-Canadian culture. The many textile outlets along these blocks boast endless swaths of colourful sari fabric, while the local markets and food stalls waft the savory scent of sugar and spice. Indian fast-pop breaks the quiet of the neighbourhood, as it drifts out from the windows of shops and homes, and glitzy storefronts offer bangles, jewels, and silk at reasonable prices. Join the bargain hunt and step into a world apart in Little India, which becomes especially upbeat during the summer, when celebrations and festivities take hold of its streets.
