Chutney Squishy Please – The defnition of "Dive" is personified at Vik's. The interior is intimidating, but the food is fantastic!!!! You can't find better chaat in the bay area. Their specialty is Dosa on the weekends. Don't mind the lines nor the Delhi belly.
$.02 – Vik's is a pay and pick-up style diner. I have been here several times and I think the food is fantastic. They only have a couple different lunch selections each day and they vary. So, if you are a picky eater this place probably isn't for you. If you are more adventurous I would highly suggest you try Vik's. The prices are low and parking is plentifull in the adjacent lot. Vik's is a little out of the way in that there aren't many shops immediately nearby. Great value and great food.
I eat it every day – I seriously eat lunch from this place 2-4 times a week. I recommend "to go", since the atmosphere of the warehouse is not great, and seating scarce in peak times. But the food is cheap and of consistantly tasty quality.
Cheap and fabulous food – The warehouse-like ambiance and minimal service is part of the experience here, so don't go if you're looking for a nice, quiet meal. It's loud and a bit chaotic. But the food...we stuffed ourselves with three different dishes for about $12. You can't beat that, and everything was fresh, authentic and delicious. Next time I'm in town, I'm going back!
Yummy Funk in Bizerkeley – Good for the patient and adveturesome. Don't go expecting great ambiance. Go for the food.
Chaat Cafe is better – Vik's used to be okay when they had no competition. If you want good, relatively cheap Indian food go to chaat cafe. I think the cafe is pretty much the best Indian restaurant in the bay area right now. There some other good ones but they are way to pricey and the other cheap ones can't compare.
A hot spot for hot chaat – In a word, fantastic! The ambience does leave something to be desired, but they more than make up for it in quality, speed, and price. The food is superb - try a daily special and a side...it'll fill you up, and it won't even dent your wallet! Oh, and there's even a fairly large parking lot, if you can believe it!
good cheap food – the food is awesome. the place is too crowded on the weekends. take a day off work and go around 2 on a weekday.
What Ambience?! – Went to Vik's after reading the reviews here. It was a Mistake. Its setup like a warehouse (1/2 is a grocery store ..1/2 a food joint). That in itself would have been ok, except the food that I had did not taste that good either. Very dissapointed.
