Sometimes, you just fancy a curry. You check a few reviews and think "this place will do" couldn't have have had more average expectations - but we were blown away by this place. From the apps to the mains, the fabulous bread selections and the attentive service, The Gaylord absolutely delivers. Highly recommended and legitimately gourmet Indian food - excellent.

This is the one restaurant in Chicago we HAVE to visit whenever we are in town. Good food and a relaxed atmosphere. Attentive staff. We are former Chicagoans and have an almost forty-year history with this restaurant.

Large portions, for pretty reasonable prices, and it was good, but not great. Chicken was flavorful, but tough. Service spotty.

In Chicago for a day, thought I'd try this place out. This was probably the worst service I have ever received, the waiter in the grey suit never smiled and treated us like we were a burden! When the food did arrive it was mostly tasteless and bland, not at all what I expect from Indian food, definitely did not... More

We are somewhat Indian food snobs, and have had it across the U.S. and abroad. This place has some of the best we have had anywhere. When we are in Chicago, we typically eat here at least once if not twice. All of the dishes we have tried consistently have thick flavorful sauces. Service can be hit or miss, but... More

Waiters argued in front of customers. Flavors unbalanced in main dishes, I am fairly sure chicken was reheated in some of the dishes!! Naan bread was the only good element of the dinner. We wanted to love it but ..sorry this place was very disappointing.

As part of our journey of discovering as many of the restaurants within our local area we decided that we wanted to try Indian, as it is one of my younger sons favorite cuisines. Not being to India to compare, but we've been to London many times and have sampled various restaurants there we use London's food as the standard.... More

If you want excellent Indian cuisine in the gold coast /magnificent mile area this is it. It has the usual Indian lunch buffet. However food is tasty and the restaurant has and "ala carte" menu that includes North, South, East and West Indian cuisine, well prepared. Wait staff are friendly. They alerted us to a South Indian Buffet ! on... More

We were in Chicago for an overnight and craving for some Indian cuisine for dinner. This is the one that was closest to the mall and didn't had to walk that far or drive. So we came in, there was a party and we got lucky that we got a seat (well they said we don't have to make reservation... More
