Very good Indian food in Downtown Chicago

This place was a lucky find. The decor seems like a chain restaurant but the food was excellent and the service good. The waitress was knowledgeable about the food and allowed alternatives to be ordered. The vegetarian selection was good. The food was tasty but very mild. Tap water was offered as... read more

Went to this place after reading lot of good reviews however I was totally disappointed with this place. During our visit, following things we experienced: 1. Tables were too close to each others. 2. It was so congested that waiter spilled entire bottle of beer on a person sitting on next table. 3. Waiter didn't show any sign of being... More

We took in lunch today at India House in Chicago. The buffet was excellent and nicely prepared with a wide array of dishes for both vegan and carnivore. At many Indian restaurants the y offer buffet with lots of starchy and odd dishes... not at India House. Complimentary dishes with mild spicing, make India House a nice place for "novice... More

I don't normally visit Indian restaurants outside India as I have noticed that the taste is almost always completely compromised! So I stepped into India House with some hesitation and I was pleasantly surprised!! The taste was absolutely authentic!! I would definitely recommend this place not only to visitors from India but to every gastronome out there!!

Food was not at all comparable to the india house in Schaumburg, IL. It was horrible. Specially vegetarian food lovers will not like it.

While my wife who does not enjoy Indian food was away, I treated myself to a meal at India House. The restaurant has a nice contemporary interior, the service was excellent, and the meal a delight. The flavors were not powerful, but I enjoyed the subtle notes coming through in the dal ka shorba soup, the dipping sauce with the... 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.
