Wonderful Dinner Experience

Visiting the area, we were joined by out of town friends to dine at this lovely restaurant.
We ordered & shared many dishes; all of which were plentiful & very tasty.
Staff was friendly & accommodating, and the chef even came to chat with us.
For us, the Essence of India Restaurant was a delightful Indian cosine experience.
We recommend this place for dining & we'll definitely be back.

We stopped off on our way back from Whistler, the service was outstanding, the food unbelievable, it was definetly the best I have ever had, the Tandoori ribs were out of this world. The fish and chicken pakoras are packed with flavour the mint chutney that comes with the pakoras is fresh you can actually taste the fresh mint.
If you are ever in that area, you must give this place a try you will not be disappointed. I know we will always be stopping off on our way to Whistler and on our way back to Vancouver.

Not the greatest, but not lots of choice in town

I love Indian food and often go to Vancouver to have my fix, I was glad to see a local restaurant open again after many years of not having one in Squamish. However, I have had take out here twice and both times was disappointed, not just in the quality, but the quantity was small. I found the butter chicken far better at Pepe and Gringo's next door. If you are looking for something other than Butter Chicken or Vindaloo, then try Essence of India, otherwise you'd be happier with Pepe's Indian dishes.
