Restaurant Awards 2024: Best Indian Restaurants in Vancouver

The Best Indian Restaurants in and Around Vancouver in 2024

Gold: Dhaliwal’s Lounge

The Best Indian lineup for 2024 is a suburban smorgasbord. First, there’s gold winner Dhaliwal’s Lounge, a restaurant that maintains night-club vibes despite its location in a Surrey industrial mall. Our judges loved the friendly, inventive dishes—like the gamey goat razala curry and tender avadhi sheekh kabab—and the whimsical drinks (the Daddy Double Dose menu descriptor is “No one stops the dads today from having beer and rum together, but no dancing on the floor after”).

112–7938 128 St., Surrey

Silver: Sachdeva Sweets

Silver goes to another Surrey mainstay, Sachdeva Sweets. “They do all the staples well, but I think where they really shine is in the vegetarian dishes like matar paneer and the street food like puri chaat,” said one judge.

118–7500 120 St., Surrey

Bronze: Tasty Indian Bistro

Bronze winner Tasty Indian Bistro has both Delta and Yaletown locations, so you don’t need to leave city limits for a lamb vindaloo that one judge called “one of the best I’ve had—with sharp pungency and bright heat, it’s alive and immediate, but deeply rounded as well.”

1261 Hamilton St. and 8295 120th St., Delta
