Vancouver – Vij’s

Vij’s is an incredibly popular and amazing Indian restaurant in Vancouver. I had only eaten here once during the Olympics back in 2010 so for our date night K and I headed over on a snowy evening. They don’t accept reservations but since moving to a new location they have a large enough lounge area that accommodates guests, thankfully as it was Boxing Day there weren’t many people and we only had to wait 15 minutes.

The naan was incredible, the only restaurant in Seattle that comes close is Nirmal’s since the restaurant Vij’s wife opened here sadly closed after a short run.  The goat curry was tasty but could’ve have used more spice and while the duck had great flavor you can see the meat was overcooked.
