Shanik

Recommended
People are CA-RAZY about the upscale Indian food at Vij's in Vancouver, BC. When sister restaurant Shanik opened in December 2012 in South Lake Union, anticipation was CA-RAZY high, and the place got off to a rocky start (including staff changes right as the opening occurred). Shanik is not Vij's, nor will it ever be, but if you want refined, imaginative Indian cuisine made with high-quality, carefully sourced ingredients, served with professionalism in an unostentatious but elegant setting, you should try it. Yes, it is expensive, but this isn't your neighborhood Indian joint (and they do have a less-expensive lunch menu, plus to-go/make-at-home items at Shanik Market, on site). It's worth it.
