    They are living the Canadian dream at Shandhar Hut on Young Road.The Atti family of Chilliwack worked hard to open an Indian restaurant about a decade ago, and the bustling venture has been growing steadily ever since.

    The youngest son of Sam and Kam Atti, Gordon, 26, warmly greets patrons with a smile.

    It was his sister, Sukhi, who came up with the tag-line for Shandhar Hut: The senses were meant to be indulged and it is easy to see why.

    The fragrant hand-made curries, fl uffy rice and savoury naan bread are beautifully presented on gleaming copper dishes, with Southeast Asian music coming through the speakers.

    Word of mouth has been key to our success, Gordon explains.

    Theyre proud of the glowing feedback and positive online reviews they receive daily.

    Its not by accident they are rated #5, the fi fth most popular restaurant in B.C. on Urban Spoon.

    Providing excellent customer service is key and Gordon makes a point of remembering what the regulars like to order.

    Were doing so well, were planning to expand!

    Only the best survive in Chilliwack, because customers always come back to what they know and love. Other Indian restaurants may come and go in Chilliwack, and Shandhar Hut carries on.

    Theyll eventually be taking over the lot next door, and even thinking about expanding out to Sardis one day.

    Our loyalty has always been to Chilliwack, he says.

    Theyve created a popular and stable business dishing out a staggering variety of authentic Indian dishes that are customized to every taste.

    Their cuisine is infl uenced by the rustic fl avours of Northern Frontier style of Indian cooking, but not exclusively. Their curries and other specialties come from all the various regions.

    Butter chicken, so zesty and rich, has consistently been one of their best sellers, but they also have a large variety of satisfying vegetarian options.

    They have a huge, round tandoori oven that is responsible for producing the authentic Tandoori chicken, chicken tikka, naan bread and roti.

    Dietary considerations of their customers is always paramount.

    Gluten free? No problem. They have naan bread made of corn fl our.

    Vegan? Lactose intolerant? Garlic

    allergy? Absolutely no problem. Just ask.

    The matriarch, Kam Atti, is the source of all the wonderful recipes they use at Shandhar hut. She learned to cook at her own mothers side, and took cooking classes back in India.

    Its been trial and error in the kitchen to fi nd what Chilliwack likes, but they focused on using the fi nest and freshest ingredients, and making the food as mild or as hot as someone prefers.

    Never been to an Indian restaurant because it might be too hot and spicy? Come right in and see how subtle, mild and fl avourful they can make your order.

    I always send my customers home happy, Kam says.

    They are all living the dream the Canadian dream of being successful and growing a business from the ground up.

    The three Atti kids, Paul, Sukhi and Gordon, were all born in Chilliwack and raised in their home on Ashwell Road.

    Being local really helps when trying to establish and build on relationships with their loyal clientele, says Gordon.

    We started from grass roots. We didnt expect anything, and we didnt know where it would go.

    They made a point of being versatile, fl exible and accommodating to every taste and every individual dietary need.

    Gordon says his parents impressive work ethic, commitment and dedication through the years has been incredibly inspiring.

    My dad worked at a saw mill for 34 years after arriving in Canada with only $10 to his name. It was honest, hard labour and he worked the graveyard shift.

    Mom ran the local Pizza Hut for more than a dozen years before we started working on the idea to open our own restaurant.

    But dad always had a dream. Opening the restaurant in 2005 was the realization of that dream.

    And here we are now. Thanks so much to all of our customers from our family, they are our success.

    Shandhar Hut, at 8835 Young Road, 604-793-0189 is open Monday to Thursday, 11 a.m. to 9 p.m., Friday to Saturday, 11 a.m. to 10 p.m., and Sunday, 4 p.m. to 9 p.m.
