Gary Bakshi and the team welcome you to An Indian Affair, one of Langley’s favourite restaurants.

‘Every creation is a masterpiece:’ Savour a culinary tour of India

Langley restaurant among the best of the best

When you’re regularly voted one of your community’s top restaurants by both locals and visitors, you know you’re doing something right.

But if you’re Gary Bakshi and the team at Langley’s An Indian Affair, that doesn’t mean you sit back and relax with those accolades.

In fact, you work even harder to build on those exceptional relationships with diners.

“I’m so proud of my team,” says Gary, a chef and restaurateur who trained in some of India’s top kitchens, including Claridge’s and Maurya Sheraton International.

Growing up in the family restaurant, Gary embraced a love of cooking early, honing his culinary vision with restaurants in Houston, New Jersey, Louisiana and others. He fulfilled his dream of opening a restaurant in Canada with a move to Langley, opening An Indian Affair seven years ago.

“I was taught that every creation is a masterpiece and it’s the philosophy I share with my chefs,” he says.

Gary’s passion reaches from the kitchen, where he and his five chefs delight diners with creative new dishes, to the dining room, where he’s joined by daughter Kripa Bakshi and their exceptional service team.

“I love talking to people in the restaurant and seeing how happy they are eating our dishes,” he says with a smile.

Experience the diversity of Indian cuisine

From the beginning, An Indian Affair has aimed to provide authentic Indian food with a fusion twist. Fresh, flavourful and healthier ingredients challenge the misconception that the popular cuisine is unhealthy. There’s also a wide selection of gluten-free, vegetarian and vegan dishes, including at the daily lunch buffet. (Yes, they’ve also been voted the city’s Best Vegan Restaurant!)

While many other restaurants specialize in dishes from India’s Punjab region, Gary and his chefs create dishes from across India, from the coastal city of Mumbai to the cosmopolitan Delhi in the north.

“Because every dish has its unique taste, we have something to suit just about every palate,” he says, pointing to some of their most popular dishes, like Chicken Chettinaad, crafted with curry leaves and tamarin, flame-grilled tandoori, and lamb fenugreek.

A favourite for lunch, with their celebrated buffet offering more than 25 dishes from 11 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. each day, the inviting atmosphere also makes An Indian Affair ideal for quiet romantic dinners or fun evenings with friends and family. Visit until 9:30 p.m. weekdays and until 10 p.m. Friday and Saturday, when you’ll also enjoy live music.

There’s no doubt An Indian Affair’s approach resonates with customers. Those accolades we mentioned? They include Best Restaurant, Best Indian Restaurant and Best Vegan Restaurant, as voted by the Langley Advance Times readers; and outstanding reviews on Trip Advisor, Yelp and Facebook!

With that in mind, their recent expansion and redesign allows them to welcome even more guests.

While the Bakshis are delighted to host guests in the dining room, they also offer the flexibility of take-out, delivery and catering – including weddings. You’ll also see them supporting a variety of community events.

Visit at anindianaffair.com and stay up-to-date on Facebook for the latest specials and new menu items, and of course, join them in person at 19653 Willowbrook Dr.!
