Best shopping experience ever! Good old fashioned customer service. Quality Sarees, beautiful shalwar kameez, jewelry, and gift items. A one-stop shop on Devon.

Devon Avenue is a must see attraction/shopping area in uptown Chicago. There are multitude of Indian/Pakistani restaurants, chaat shops, Indian jewellery, Ethnic dresses and hundreds of other Asian shops around. Easily you can spend 3-4 hours there.

We visited there this weekend and it was cold and windy. Firstly, it is impossible to find parking even though there were very few people walking around, also the sidewalk is uneven and broken everywhere so be careful where you tread, I also did not like how dirty everything is, lots of empty shops everywhere. There are a selection of... More

This is what Chicago is all about. A neighborhood comprised of many varieties of Indian and Pakistani stores, along with a spattering of others. There are a number of restaurants which range in price from inexpensive, on up. If you can't find an Indian sari that you would like or other clothes of that sort, you haven't looked hard enough....

This avenue is filled with people of all religion and culture. It is a nice place to see different cultures mingling. Food is amazing and shopping for Indian/Pakistani good is great. Don't forget to bargain!

For a quick trip to India, visit Devon Avenue. Ethnic Restaurants are everywhere, stores are teeming with saris, fabrics, and native jewelry,ethnic groceries, people wear their native clothes, shops stay open late, and it is a unique experience just being there. HINT: Be prepared, parking is at a premium as most of the surrounding blocks have resident parking stickers.

Try to visit the Indo-Pakistani section of Devon Avenue if you're in the mood for an ethnic experience. Vegetarian snacks, Pakistani kebabs, clothing and jewelry stores...worth spending two to three hours if you've done all the touristy things and are looking to do something different in Chicago.
