The price was slightly higher but it probably decent for Chicago downtown . The day I had been there , they had lot of vegetarian options , and I loved that... More

Seemed nice and food tasty. I was there with friends. I did visit before Subway, Panda, Tamarind (much better then 2 previous), Howell & Hood (posh place in the center) and this one. I liked this place most. We finished around 22h, streets seemed to be full of people, life and joy. I think food is authentic, portions are big,... More

Nice decor, reasonably good service. A good sign is that Indian families were there too. They brought out some plain naan bread pieces and a kind of miniature soup, or was it a Tikka Masala dip? Nice though. Only two craft ales (bottled) but an extensive wine list. My main course is one I've had frequently before in numerous other... More

The food here is very much in line with the Indian cuisine( yea sometimes it is hard to find good Indian food). Portions are just right so you can get a belly full of Indian taste. Service is not bad, staff is courteous. just a little understaffed may be.

My husband and I love this place. They have awesome Indian food. They also recently just got a super sexy makeover inside and it really has changed the atmosphere of the place. This is a great place for a sophisticated but casual lunch or dinner.

Traveling from India to United States can bring about many emotions especially if one is on a business trip, regarding home style food. Staying in downtown Chicago, Hotel concierge told us about an Indian Restaurant a block away. We found that it was a fusion food joint. Disappointed we started away, as a passerby told us about India House. We... More

I love Indian food and always enjoy an Indian Buffet. This is the best Indian Buffet I have ever had the pleasure to enjoy. Come hungry! A wonderful atmosphere and attentive service. I have also been there at night for dinner (not a buffet) and really enjoyed it. I particularly like the Vegetarian Special for dinner.

Traveled to Chicago for a fun weekend with old friends. We wanted Indian Food and considered many restaurants but choose this one because it was a short walk from our hotel. Fabulous chutneys - particularly mint chutney. EXTENSIVE menu - offered lots of choices for both vegans and canivores. Delicious favors and very fresh! Excellent attentive service

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"!

Weeknight dinner with work friends and spouses. A couple of people had not eaten much Indian food before and went in with some trepidation but left very happy and encouraged. We ordered family style of Pappadum, Tandoori platter and Chicken 65 appetizers followed by Chicken Tikka Masala, Tandoori Salmon, Palak Paneer, Dal Makhani, Rogan Josh and mix of plain naan,...
