This is a "must" stop for us on our trips to Berkeley. You cannot order wrong here so do not stress about the menu if the words and food are unfamiliar to you! Everything is delicious and different. This is a great place to go with several people so you can eat family style - sharing and debating which plates... More

Gone there for South Indian food. Good food. Gives a feel of Indian canteen. Thalis are also good. Looking for chaat in Berkeley, this is the place.

Remember when Vik's was still housed in a former auto garage? I'm addicted to their masala dosa. The downside is that it is now $9.50 and a mango lassi is $4.50

Very good Dosa and I have eaten this in many places. The thali meals are good as well. They do many Indian classics quickly and efficiently. This is not atmosphere or ambiance. More like a well run cafeteria with very good food and many people coming and going. They have plenty of parking and access.

Vik's chaat is a lovely place to hang out for some quick Indian food and pick up Indian spices from their supermarket section. The restaurant side is like a food court kind of scene and very busy. We landed up around 4pm on a Saturday and starving after a hike in Tilden Park. Between the three of us we shared... More

I am writing to compliment their plain dosa It is by far the best I've had in the Bay Area. There are some fancier restaurants in SF that claim to make good Dosa but in reality those restaurants are not as good nor as authentic as Viks when it comes to real Indian food. Cheap, clean, Yummy ! I really... More

My wife and I go to Vic’s often for lunch rather than dinner (since they close at 6 PM M-Th) and I habitually order more food than I should. You may have a wait in line to order, you sit at cafeteria-style metal-topped tables, the restaurant can be quite boisterous, you pick up your order or orders, and bus your... More
