I went with some friends on a Saturday afternoon. It was delicious, though quite busy. Not a place to sit and do work, but great for a family food outing.

I love the ambiance, food, and spirit of this cafeteria style Chaat Restaurant. I generally stick to the curries and breads, but always leave room for the tasty Indian desserts. Cheap prices, as well as a store with an ample selection of Indian foods and spices is next door.

Could not resist a return visit after 6 months and I'm glad to say it's all pretty good - the formula works well.... the dishes remain much the same and the daily specials are worth checking out. Loved my favorite lamb somosas and sauces, tandoori chicken, mango lasso and fabulous breads. Friday was supposed to be fish day but somehow... More

This is a good Indian Chat house and as good as it gets. Just try once and you will be hooked. The Chenna Batura was good. Slightly mild for Indian taste yet nice and spicy .

During week ends, you get dosas, utappam, Idli, Paratha, Pav Bhaji, Dhokla and other non-veg stuff. You also have Chaat menu. Uttappam was good, Dhokla was so so. Every one liked Chaat menu. But the best of all is Kulfi Ice cream. I will definitely visit again for kulfi

I loved the experience here, go to counter, wait, order, sit, order called and you pickup. Large space, noisy but fun. People love to share here. Food was fun but not over the top great. I'd go back if I was in the area and needed my India fix.

ClAloo Tiki Cholle is divine. (Note to self: get that again.) Uttapam looks like Indian pizza but is deep friend bread with cilantro on top. Lamb Biryani is very filling and tasty but you have to eat around bones and gristle. Tandoori chicken is good and comes with good lentils, rice, chapati and raita (a cooling cucumber/yogurt)--quite a lot to... More

Vik's is a cafeteria style Indian food restaurant that exceptionally good. There s a wide selection of Chaat foods to choose from, and they are very reasonably priced. One of the better restaurants in Berkely.

Vik's is both a superb grocery store and a sit-down and take-out restaurant. The whole place smells like the most wonderful Indian food. Good luck selecting a pastry or two from the gorgeous display case! We bought some treats to eat in the restaurant area and some pastries to take away, and also bought some items in the grocery.

Gotta join in the love-fest here: Vik's is a real treasure for the community. Casual, bustling place with tons of bargain-priced choices. Order lots of stuff and experiment. Good mix of Indian and other clientele, friendly (if occasionally confusing) service... Just a really fun dining experience. And don't overlook the fascinating grocery store up front!
