Since 1989, Viks Chaat has been serving up authentic chaat dishes from various regions of India. The word chaat means lick, which refers to the licking of the remaining delicious morsels from the leaf that Indian street food is traditionally served on. As a family-owned business, Viks Chaat is focused on bringing their fond memories of traditional Indian street food to the public.

Started as a small eatery in a warehouse, Viks Chaat quickly became a popular mainstay in Berkeley. Their restaurant became so popular that this family-owned business was forced to upgrade its location in order to meet the demand. The new restaurant on 4th Street still has the same warehouse setup, just with more room and better lighting. The food is also still the same, made from fresh ingredients as soon as customers place their orders to ensure that they consume their chaats the way they are supposed to be consumed…fresh.
