Very good food, overpriced

Great atmosphere and an excellent meal with family who have struggled to find good indian food in Chicago. I will agree with prior posters that the food is really good, service was good although the prices seemed high

I liked the food. Away from India it is the best indian taste food that I had. Although my brother is a regular visitor to this place and it is easily accessible.

Very nice Indian food. Everything from Mirchi pakoda to mango ice cream was great. It is expensive dining place though.

We have been past this restaurant a number of times, and decided to try it prior to a show in the loop. First off, the restaurant was only about 20% full for our 6:00 pm reservation, and they attempted to put us in a booth next to the kitchen??? We had them move us to a table in the front... More

Great food while not very expensive. They have a very diverse vegetarian menu - I chose two dishes almost randomly and they were both excellent (though very hot - make sure to mention when you order if you don't like yours that spicy).

Had our first Chicago dinner in the Indian house. Both service and food were really nice. We had multiple starters followed by by some curries. The chickpeas and butter chicken Marsala were really nice. We also had some vindaloo dish - could have been more spicy :) I would certainly come back.

Visited the place recently. Food was not up to the mark. The formula seems to be more oil more the taste. Good ambiance and Hindi music. The service was polite and quick.

We ordered special veg thali. They were flexible to offer different sabji. Which was good. Kheers, breads, channa dal were good. Areas of improvement: Gulab jambun were terrible. Veg kabab were dry and tasteless. The place was too noisy. All i can say unless there is a compulsion to have Indian food, avoid this place.

This was my second time at India House and the same great experience. The service was excellent and the food superb. I had the lamb vindaloo curry which was spicey(as expected) with large pieces of tender lamb-no fat. My wife had the standard lamb curry which was flavorful and not hot. We could not finish our meals due to the... More
