I took two colleagues of Indian descent as I had hoped they would enjoy the experience. They were most impressed by the freshness, variety and Nepalese chef on premises. I have dined there many times and knew I enjoyed the many dishes but was so pleased my friends were happy. The service is always wonderful- never rushed or ignored. I... More

I went there in Oct and then returned in January. I must have loved it to walk there when the wind chill was minus 17 degrees F! The menu is extensive, with Nepalese and Indian specialties. I especially loved the Shrimp Madras. It had plenty of shrimp and a spicy, rich sauce. The Naan bread with minced lamb was also... More

I have never been to a Nepalese/Indian restaurant before, although I've been to many strictly Indian places. I was delighted with their version of the classic Nepalese dish called momo, a form of filled dumpling. We ordered both kinds that were available, vegetable and chicken. Both were spicy, but the vegetable was more so. Absolutely delicious. I should have stopped... More

My husband and I were very hungry from our flight into Chicago. We picked up our rental car and the rental lady gave us a magazine which i pursued for place to eat. We weren't sure what we wanted to eat but we both wanted to try something different...and so we did! We could not have been any happier eating... More

If you like Indian food you will like this place. The food is VERY GOOD, the only issue we had was the service was a little off.

I was on a day trip in Chicago and was looking for something to eat for lunch. I saw a sign, that promotes the lunch buffet at Chicago Curry House. So I went there. The waiter was really friendly and served very quick the drinks, but not the naan bread I orderd. On the buffet there was a small part... More

Really awesome food. Seems little off the beaten path however, there was a constant flow of customers. In s ide it was a little darkbutclean. We were greeted warmly and brought some delicious traditional crisps with sauces. All had a rich fresh flavor. Dinner was a casual pace. We ordered a two items; cauliflower and eggplant dish.

I am an Indian and love Indian food. 7th September long weekend went to chicago with friends. What a pleasent trip to Chicago until we went to Chicago Curry House. First of all we have to wait for 25 mins to get the starters, as the staff was busy with home delivery and takeouts. Disaster starts after getting the starter... More

This was the 3rd time here for the buffet lunch. The food is very tasty and the selection is very good. Apart from the food, the décor is low key (not gaudy) so it feels very comfortable. I used to hate lentils but there they are great. There's a bit if a bit to most things but not overwhelming. One... More

Staying in Downtown / The Loop

Neighborhood Profile
Downtown / The Loop
Often visitors' first stop in Chicago, The Loop is a good starting point to sample the city's energy and flavor. This central business district boasts Michelin-rated restaurants, upscale hotels, premier shopping, and enough arresting architecture to keep your camera busy for hours. You won’t find too many photo galleries of downtown Chicago without a shot of Millennium Park and Cloud Gate (“The Bean”), one of the most iconic landmarks in the city. A stunning skyline coupled with cultural attractions like the Art Institute of Chicago present a Downtown where work and play peacefully coexist.
