Need to Know … from Vacay.ca’s Michelle Hopkins: It's an electric menu that is a departure from Vij's other restaurants. The menu spans various districts of India — from Mumbai to Goa. As one who loves Indian cuisine, the flavours here just burst in your mouth. It's a great place to be adventurous … the spices, flavours and combinations are simply tantalizing.”

Peter Neal of Neal Bros. says: LOVED Vikram's latest restaurant — Bollywood feel inside and out but with a relaxed tempo. Chef is using local organic meats, poultry and sustainable fish to narrate a pan-Indian love affair with his homeland’s cuisine. As usual he takes a thoughtful approach to local and value wines to accompany his food. I ate here twice this year and was in heaven each time.”

Vacay.ca and Top Restaurants In Canada Founder Adrian Brijbassi says: Vikram Vij calls My Shanti, ‘My baby.’ It is the embodiment of the Indian restaurant he has always wanted to have. Vij's pleased the crowd, My Shanti pleases the Amritsar-born chef's desire to showcase cuisine truer to his motherland. My Shanti has dishes that give you a culinary tour of India unlike any other restaurant in Canada.”
