Vik’s serves authentic Indian street food in a converted warehouse space in West Berkeley. You order at the counter and then eat at one of the food-court-style metal tables, so it’s a great option for a casual lunch or something to change up your normal dinner routine. Just know that whenever you go, there will probably be a line. Get the masala dosas and the lamb biryani and you’ll be glad you stuck out the wait.
