We shared the Aloo Ki Tikki potato cakes with a kick mango chutney sauce. Nice. My wife had the Mumbai Chicken and enjoyed the spice and presentation. I had the Bangali Eggplant that was quite tasty, aromatic and tangy. Service was good and helpful.

We don't frequent Jolly's as regularly since we moved out of the neighborhood. As usual we start with either naan or samosas. Our favorites are butter chicken and goa fish fry and finishing our repast is either rice pudding or a carmalized banana

Kitsilano is one of Vancouver's most transformative
neighbourhoods. With a long history of coffee culture
and poetry readings, its days of flower children and
buskers may be long-gone, but not without leaving
their mark on the number of organic restaurants and
