Crowded on a Tuesday night! We were seated in a "side room" off the main restaurant. Incredibly loud; maybe some sound deadening measures would be worth investigating??? Food, decidedly "average" but just about OK if you need that Indian food "fix"!

Many selections, professional staff. Wonderful flavors and selections. We have visited here numerous times at noon and have always enjoyed their menu and buffet. Evenings are nice, as well. Remodeled dining areas. Good for couples, romantic, and television area separate. Excellent dining option in River North area.

Loved this place. When you enter it looks more like a trendy lounge than an Indian restaurant. We were seated in a very nice large booth. Cocktails were large and excellent. Food was abundant (we had leftovers) and delicious. The Nan breads, the side dishes and the main courses (I had chicken tika masala but my friends tried different lamb... More

A great selection of Indian veg dishes. The buffet a little overpriced, but kind of ok to get this in Chicago. Not to discount the fact they would play cricket matches on a large screen!!!
