This place is not a traditional Indian restaurant, but the food is excellent. It’s offers an innovative take on Indian and North American cuisine. Everything we had was delicious! The goat was particularly good.

If you want spectacular Indian food.... don’t miss ViJ’s. From the moment I entered and was welcomed by ViJ, absorbed the sights and smells of the place, I was impressed. Then the food came - and words fail. Lamb popsicles - extraordinary. Portobello mushrooms filled...More
