The judges have spoken: these are the best Indian restaurants in Vancouver.
GOLD: Swad, 1734 Marine Drive
SILVER: Dosa Corner, 8248 Fraser Street
BRONZE: Sachdeva Sweets, 7500 120 Street #118
HONOURABLE MENTIONS: The Yellow Chilli
West Vancouver’s Swad heads back to the top after its silver placement in 2020. The restrained delicacy of the cooking here, noted one judge, highlights the long lineage of sophisticated dining and cooking culture that is Indian cuisine. The menu travels a wide range of regions, but particularly superb is the lamb Hyderabadi, with its lovely bittersweet finish thanks to poppy seeds and coconut.
Dosa Corner is awarded silver for its perfectly prepared Southern Indian namesake dosas: crackling thin along the edges, the right amount of tangy, fermented chew, and fillings that are alive with sharp spicing.
Surrey institution Sachdeva Sweets takes bronze for its superb Indian street food: cool puri chaat, warming channa bhatura and terrific stuffed bread. (And don’t leave without a box of crisp spiced fritters—or their made-in-house addictive snack mixes.) And an honourable mention nod goes to Delta’s The Yellow Chilli: the Murgh Noormahal biryani—topped with a traditional sealed pastry—is perfection.
