Grounds for Appeal is located in the Law Society building and serves up freshly made breakfast items, sandwiches and homemade, authentic Indian dishes like butter chicken, tikka masala and assorted curries.
As someone who has eaten at this location for several years, I never really gave it any thought to review it, as the cafeteria style setting looks hardly like a restaurant, but if you look past the fact that there are only discard-able dishes and cutlery, you will find some excellent curries. the restaurant is clean, spacious and airy and has a mixture of professionals, students, tourists and locals.
Every day there is a lineup of fifty plus people who know the menu off by heart, myself included. Rita (the owner) takes great pride in her food and I can honestly say that her lamb curry is the best I have ever eaten. I also fall back on the butter chicken as one of my staples as well.
It has the usual daily menu board with soups of the day, sandwiches of the day and your choice of entrees. As it is in the Law Society building on Cambie st. (Just passed the library on Robson) most people will never have the chance to taste her deliciousness unless you need to come to the building.
Try it as an adventure and an outing with the reward of good food. I bet you will go back,
Food 4 Thought
This place is close to where I work so I tend to eat too much curries these days. They advertise 6 daily curries and for less than $10, it's a good value. The food is consistent and fresh. Only once did I have bread that wasn't very fresh. It's a small mom and pop shop inside the Law Society building. Decent for the price and generally well accepted in terms of curry.
