Avid blog reader, Margot, made sure we didn’t miss Tandoori Kona! Located at No. 5 & Cambie Road, this restaurant is regarded by many to be the best Indian restaurant in Richmond. Food blogger, Paradise by the Oven Light raves, “The food was so rich that we had leftovers and probably could have done without the appetizers. I definitely understand why this is known as the best Indian restaurant in Richmond now and will be returning many times in the future!” Yelp reviewer Mystic-Wind63 seconds the sentiment, saying that  “…it was DELICIOUS! The butter chicken is some of the best I’ve ever had – moist, flavourful, hot.” >> Explore the menu

Little India, White Rock

Little India at White Rock beach is my #1 go-to Indian restaurant. The friendly-owner, Peter, offers unparalleled service and a delightful dining experience, all paired with breathtaking ocean views of White Rock pier & beach. The warm, welcoming atmosphere makes you feel right at home – even if it’s your first Indian dining experience – and has successfully converted many of my more reluctant friends into Indian food advocates. Try the tikka masala, chili chicken, or my favourite – butter chicken. Paired with a Kingfisher beer, there is nothing better than sitting back and enjoying the sunset from this spectacular viewpoint. >> Explore the menu

Recommended by reader Julie Brown, the Original Tandoori Kitchen on Main Street boasts dishes that are “inspired by Great Indian Emperors”. Their “signature dishes are first marinated in an exotic blend of spices, as inspired by chefs of bygone eras, before they are barbecued on skewers in the tall, high-heat tandoor oven over charcoal.” Sound delicious? You bet! With a strong 91% review rating on Urbanspoon, this is one tried & tested Tandoori joint you’ll want to try for yourself! >> Explore the menu
