Vij's (Cambie) - updates ?

OK, I live a stone's throw away from their new flagship venue and I can't figure out what's happening inside (construction seems to be at a glacial pace).

Anyone has any insider info, for curiosity sake ?

      I thought he was setting up something in Surrey-or was it Seattle?

        Meeru Dhaliwal has a well-received resto in Seattle (Shanik) and they just opened a place in Surrey (My Shanti). I heard more than a year ago from a very reliable source that they were having trouble settling on a concept for the Cambie space.

            This is from March. New space will be the same menu while the old space gets the new concept.

            "This fall, Vij and Dhalwala are planning to open the new Vij’s restaurant at Cambie and West 15th, a project that has been delayed for two years. It will retain the same menu as the current Vij’s, which will get a new concept. The pair haven’t yet decided what that concept will be. “We just go back and forth with ideas,” Dhalwala says."
