Vancouverites who love North Delta’s popular Tasty Indian Bistro will be able to satisfy their cravings within city limits when the restaurant opens up its second location soon in Yaletown.
Tasty Indian Bistro as we know it now–the modern, vibrant, large restaurant on 120th Street on the North Delta side of the Delta/Surrey border–actually began in 1999, when Indian immigrant and restaurateur Avtar Saini opened the modest Tasty Sweets and Restaurant on Scott Road in Surrey.
Saini passed away in 2010, a year before his son and son-in-law opened Tasty Indian Bistro in its current location.

Quick read 1999 – My family planned to open a sweetshop/Indian restaurant on Scott Road. They struggled to think of a name that would represent the brand and product. Over countless days and nights of thinking, my Nana Ji (Avtar Saini) without any hesitation said, Tasty! Everyone in the family thought of it to be a complete joke. My Nana was not the kind to joke around when it came to his business. It was either his way or the highway. 2018- Today I was fortunate to stand in front of Tasty Indian Bistro | Yaletown. Many memories were cherished of my Nana Ji amongst me and my mum. Yaletown, I cannot wait to bring you the most memorable dining experience this fall.
Known for its sleek interior and a selection of Indian fare that many hail as the best in Metro Vancouver (and that some even drive across the border for!), Tasty Indian Bistro serves lunch and dinner to packed crowds daily.
Showcasing everything from specialties done in the Tandoori clay ovens to chicken, lamb, seafood, and veggie-based entrees, along with all the trimmings, including fresh naan, rice, and more, Tasty Indian Bistro is beloved for dishes like Chicken Tikka Masala, Butter Chicken, Paneer Pakora, Samosas, Kadahi Lamb, Malai Kofta, Goat Curry, and their garlic naan–among many, many others.
