Indian Essence Bistro


The Indian Essence Bistro Fort St. John is an authentic Indian food restaurant with an elegant dining room. One of it’s most popular features is an Indian food buffet that has a special buffet item every Saturday and Monday. It’s located at 10123 100 Street in Fort St. John, and they have an ever-growing menu of meat and vegetarian dishes for you to choose. Having such a nice selection of ethnic food restaurants like the Indian Essence Bistro has contributed to the popularity of Fort St. John real estate.

Much of the tastiness to the foods on the menu can be attributed to the skills of head chef, Balram Bali. He worked in 5-star hotels in India before coming to Canada, and it’s his expertise that makes this Indian food both authentic and delicious.

There is 10% off on pickup orders of $100 or more, and they do delivery anywhere in Fort St. John for $4. They also deliver to Taylor, BC for orders over $50. They also do ‘Tiffin’ service, which is traditional Indian food takeout that is very popular for lunch in the office.

Best to come to the Indian Essence on an empty stomach, and especially so if you intend to enjoy the buffet. The lunch and dinner buffet goes Monday to Saturday, and the restaurant is closed Sundays. Reservations can be made at (250) 785-6636 and they welcome any other inquiries as well.
