I Can't Find Vik's Chaat Room!

I drove the length of 4th street looking for it but left hungry and disappointed! Any landmarks or storefront colors I should look for? What is the parking situation?

    724 Allston between 4th and 5th, there's a parking lot next door. Too late for today though.

    Vik's Chaat House
    2390 Fourth Street, Berkeley, CA 94710

      I've never been able to figure out the parking situation. Yes, there's a parking lot next door but also a lot of signs that say "No Vik's Parking." Apparently half of the lot is ok to park in and half isn't. Lately I've been parking on the street (with no problem) because those signs make me nervous...

      As far as finding it: Look for a non-descript beige warehouse with a lot of people coming in and out.....There is an Indian food store sharing the building....

        The part of the lot closest to Vik's is theirs, the rest belongs to some other business.

          No, it's the other way around. Parking for Vik's is in the half of the lot further away from the building. It's quite confusing. --PR

      It's on the south side of University Avenue, not in the super-chic Fourth Street shopping area.
