Vij's late dinner?

I'll be in Vancouver this weekend, and I'd like to take the advice of the many, many hounds who have recommended Vij's. Their website says the serve dinner from 5:30. And their phone message says 5:30 "onwards." Does any one know when they stop seating? I'd like to try to get in later in the evening.
Thanks, Liz

  1. I haven't dined there later than 9...but I have no idea when they stop service.

    1. When we went last year they were still seating people at 10:30 to eat.

      1. As cmanten noted, they seat people quite late at Vij's. However, there are no reservations and any time I've been you can count on at least an hour long wait for a table. Don't worry, the waiting is fun- there is a lounge area in the back where you can order drinks and have free snacks. But I'd give yourself extra time in case there are too many people already waiting if you arrive later in the evening and they have to turn you away.

          We went on a Saturday night in September - got there at 5:30 and didn't get seated until almost 9. The snacks they brought around were great and we had a great time sitting outside visiting with our friends while we waited.

        2. Thanks everyone. We went to Vij's last weekend and got there about 9:00 on Friday, and had a table by 10:00. As promised, the bar was a great place to wait. And the food was worth waiting for. My favorite was the Punjabi heart attack.
