Reasonably priced lunch buffet with a large selection of well prepared dishes, very good service and a nice atmosphere.

We went here for a Sunday lunch buffet. The food was good but nothing to write home about. The charge for the buffet was $19 per person for lunch and an additional 15% service charge. I will not be going again.

Our visit was disappointing. Fish seemed stale and lamb curry and few other items were too spicy even for Indians. Several dishes were out but they were very slow to replace. We could barely eat much and felt we waste $17.99 on buffet. When we contacted service manager about these concerns he simply ignored it. What is worse, they added... More

Having visited india house, i can advise for a visit of this place. Nice indian meals with a lot of variety. I have ordered the india house special and it was pretty good. I cannot imagine someone being able to eat the full meal - it was a lot of meat. One improvement point may be the breads - they... More

We ordered multiple appetizers and main dishes. Surprisingly, none of them were even better than average. The goat in the goat biryani was very bony and hard. Even the kababs felt like they were frozen and warmed. The ambience was very nice. Perhaps it was very crowded which may have affected the quality. Service staff were attentive and courteous.

trendy decor for indian restaurant....table staff a bit unknowledgable of menu....what we ordered (lamb pasanda, boti kabob) were good but my knowledgable spouse had searched thru the list to find the most promising; the samosa shape however wasn't right (mini) and filling was bland and mushy; ok to go again but aware of limitations....price reasonable for area

Usually I prefer to try local tastes while traveling abroad, but sometimes your taste buds demand what you are most accustomed to. On such weak moment of home sickness I landed at India House in down town Chicago. The ambiance here is not truly Indian, so also the food. It is toned to suit international likes. I ordered Aloo Parathas... More

We ha never had a curry when in USA before and thought you we try one. This was very good and the food was excellent, the service was fair. The building was very hot inside and so by the time you have added the heat of the food you need plenty of water to keep going!
