Gaylord Fine offers a very extensive menu, for all good tastes and for those willing to experience something unique without being (too) pricy and with a normal atmosphere. One should visit the kitchen and see the way the bake the breads. If you prefer to dine in your room, ask for a take-out, you'll get a 20% off.

I eat lots of curries and the meal I had tonight was superb. Menu doesn't offer lots of choice but the quality of the food was outstanding. Lamb Kadai, Sag Aloo with boiled rice I can see a return trip before I leave Chicago.

We loved the food at this place but the staff and their service was terrible which spoilt the whole experience. From the guy who took the order, the server and the manager ..they all had no respect for customers. They all were really old age people with a lot of attitude and behaved in a rude manner. Staff behaviour was... More

I have not eaten in Gaylord since they moved from their Clark Street location and then it was only for their lunch buffet where understandably the spices we muted. I have however been ordering take out from them (mainly through Dining-In which no longer has Gaylord on it's fast-shrinking roster) for over 10 years. They quite often forgot something in... More

The lunch buffet was quite delightful. It has an excellent assortment of traditional dishes served buffet style as well as Tandoori chicken and naan bread served at the table. The small salad bar as well as the fruit and desserts were a nice touch. The spinach curry was my favorite. Although it's a bit pricey on a lunch scale, it's... More

Wonderful restaurant! We eat Indian food regularly, and have tried dozens of restaurants in many cities. Often the food is good, but not 'interesting.' At Gaylord we ordered a standard, very common dish (Chicken Tikka Masala) and it was anything but! So many wonderful flavors, spices...amazing. The atmosphere is slightly upscale, yet casual neighborhood feel; family friendly.

Miserable weather in Chicago, soWARM food is what I desired. I have been here before but the doorman at the Four SEasons recommended this. We had a "curry" of a night and went back to the lobby bar at the hotel for more after dinner drinks....just a beautiful meal. I suggest asking the waiter "what gets ordered more" and just... More

In early December, I was in Chicago, attending RSNA. Fortunately, I was staying in hotel Drake in the E.Walton Street and this Gaylord India Restaurant is within a few minutes of walking distance. I remember visiting this restaurant a few years back, but back then, the food was unimpressive. However, this time - in fact in the course of one... More

Staying in Magnificent Mile

Neighborhood Profile
Magnificent Mile
Over 400 stores pack the concrete along Michigan Avenue, the eight-block stretch known as Magnificent Mile. This area between Oak Avenue and the Chicago River is more a shopping paradise than a full-out neighborhood. For prime upscale shopping, this is the place to go. It’s busy, energetic, and packed with shoppers. You'll also find hundreds of restaurants and dozens of hotels, all on the mid- to high-end scale. Some of the city’s most iconic buildings like the Wrigley Building, John Hancock Center and other architectural marvels define the magnificence of this neighborhood.
