Just off South Granville St, this Vancouver favorite is the high-water mark of contemporary East Indian cuisine, fusing regional ingredients, subtle global flourishes and classic ethnic flavors to produce an array of innovative dishes. The unique results range from signature wine-marinated 'lamb popsicles' to savor-worthy meals like halibut, mussels and crab in a tomato-ginger curry. Reservations not accepted, which sometimes means a very long wait.

You can avoid the queues (or a meal that stretches all night) in a couple of handy ways: next door's bistro-style Rangoli is also part of chef Vikram Vij's local empire, while his Railway Express food truck can often be spotted downtown or at festivals serving tasty Indian takeout.
