Great service and great food!

Being vegetarians, we always have had a tough time finding variety in the buffets of many restaurants but India House is an exception!! We had soo much choice! The dishes are not too spicy and not bland either. It's just the right amount. Desserts are amazing. Service is definitely top notch. We... read more

We ordered India House into our hotel room so we could stay in and watch sports. The delivery was quick and simple. The serving sizes are huge. We ordered less than we normally do at our local Indian place but we ended up with way more food than we needed. Our enormous curries came with free extra rice, and chutney... More

There wasn't anything bad. The chicken Marsala, tandoori, vegetables they were all good, but nothing special. Service and atmosphere was fine. After reading reviews and seeing ratings at various sites, I expected a WOW! That never happened.

A little hard to find, narrow street front, but very worth finding. Long, cozy, welcoming space. Told the waiter about our nightshade allergy and he found the perfect dishes for us. We had a marinated chicken that was fantastic! Delicious Naan. Spinach and chicken dish was also great (for our nightshade eater). Very professional waiter - among the best. So... More

My beef with this restaurant is that unlike most restaurants where they can modify their dishes for my allergy needs (soy, dairy, gluten), this place simply said: 'no, we don't have anything that you can eat.' I find this a bit unexpected in downtown Chicago, a place where they have to be savvy about their customers. I hope they change... More

India House has always been one of the better places to go have indian food but our recent visit made us realize that they have placed extra effort to make it more authentic. Their flavors are richer and they haven't toned down the heat for people with delicate palette :) - this they used to do a year or two... More

I was there for valentines with friends. They change their menu form regular to a fixed menu with 5 options. I don't watch chicken or wheat and made it complicated to pick one. Menus were in couples, so you had to select your option in pairs of ask for an exception to the manager. Food was regular, but this menu... More

The Indian buffet lunch is very well setup with the best Indian dishes. The food was outstanding and the staff is very friendly. The decor is quite modern which was a bit of a shock but it is very nicely decorated. The total bill for 2 buffets was under $40 which is a steal!!! I would definitely recommend and return!... More

This restaurant was closed for some time for remodeling. Was very glad when it re-opened. The inside is very nice and modern looking. The buffet has a wide variety of selections of fresh and very good food. I like the mango ice cream for a unique dessert. The service was good as they kept my water full. They also bring... More
