The long awaited sister to Vancouver’s Vij’s Restaurant’s opening is finally in hind sight; Meeru Dhalwala and Oguz Istif will be opening Shanik Restaurant in South Lake Union for dinner tonight after a stressful, yet successful friends and family dinner this past weekend. Shanik serves up original, non-traditional Indian cuisine based on recipes created by Meeru herself.
The restaurant will feature nearly 40% vegetarian dishes, using locally sourced and seasonal produce, sustainable seafood, and medication-free meats. According to the Restaurant’s twitter, Shanik will have a take out window open at lunch time, and dine in Dinner options only to begin with. Shanik is located at 500 Terry Ave North, if you stop by to check it out tonight, please drop us a review!
