Some of the best Indian food I have eaten

Didn't plan on eating at this place but just happened to be walking down the street and saw it and remembered the great recommendations. It did not disappoint. Honestly, not a whole lot of experience with Indian food but I'd rank this place up with the best. It was a lunch buffet so I could pick... read more

Looked for something near the Drake. Thought we had stumbled on a fine dining Indian restaurant. The first bit was ok, we were seated quick enough. Brought us some poppadoms then forgot about us. Someone came over in the dirtiest shirt to take the order and forgot about us again. Came over and tried to take the plates when we... More

Average in every respect. The samosas were good, though, as was the masala chai. The rest of the food was not very good, which was quite surprising. Had the roti, naan, dal and veg curry. Staff were ok.

Left the Drake and was looking for a restaurant as I was super hungry. This looked clean and it was OPEN, I love trying Indian food all over as it's a lot like Italian food - every kitchen has it's own recipe. We settled on the pakora ( too much batter), But the Saag Paneer was the best I have... More

I last visited Gaylords in March of 2015 and when I came in the door (Dec 2015) the owner was standing there and greeted me with a big smile and a "Welcome back!!" It's this close attention that he pays to his customers that make them feel so welcomed and you can't miss that, that close attention is also given... More

Love the food here, large restaurant with lots of seating. The food is amazing, my favorite is the lunch buffet which has all sorts of great Indian dishes to choose from. The menu has so much to choose from and it's so good. Service is always quick and friendly too.

Walking along Michigan Avenue I stumbled upon Gaylord India. I was certainly glad that I did. Although the restaurant was slammed on Diwali, they found a spot for me at the bar and gave me great service. The lamb vindaloo was delicious. I would gladly eat here again.

I had been to this restaurant recently with my friend for Lunch. The place had a decent spread for Lunch buffet. It had both North Indian and South Indian items. The service was OK - I would not say great. I liked the taste in this place. Since I am a vegetarian, I was worried about the choices that I... More

Very friendly and knowledgeable service. Helped me pick between 2 dishes. Generous portions, enough for 2 people. To go was quick. The pictures I posted are the leftovers; it's a lot of food.

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.
