Tried Vik's this past weekend and have to say it was OK but maybe because I had high expectations it didn't a little disappointing. For us, the food was fine and I'd say if someone hasn't had chaat in a while it is a great option among the few available around. But it is, or was on that particular day, down on spices, probably to cater the "non-desi" taste. We felt it lacked the traditional heat that spreads on one's tongue along with the tangyness and the so many other flavors of traditional chaat. We will go again if we happen to be in the neighborhood. Thanks for the recommendation.


I am obsessed with Vik's! I crave it often, but have to wait till I go home- my parents live 90 minutes away but we still make the drive. Ah! Now I am craving it again, all thanks to your post! Just kidding. Can't wait to make the chaat trek again :-)
