Top choice indian in Fairview & South Granville

A sparkling (and far larger) new location for Canada's favorite East Indian chef delivers a warmly sumptuous lounge coupled with a cavernous dining area and cool rooftop patio. The menu, a high-water mark of contemporary Indian cuisine, fuses BC ingredients, global flourishes and classic ethnic flavors to produce many inventive dishes. Results range from signature 'lamb popsicles' to flavorful meals such as sablefish in yogurt-tomato broth.

There are lots of delightful options for vegetarians (jackfruit, cumin and cardamom curry appetizer recommended). Reservations are not accepted, which sometimes means a long wait; soak it up with a few spice-infused cocktails in the lounge.
