I have lived in Rogers Park for almost six years and have seen Indie go from an unknown BYOB to getting their liquor license. Even with all of the changes the one thing that has remained consistent is the quality of their food. They have amazing sushi, seriously I kid you not it is by far the freshest in the... More

My wife and I love Thai and Sushi. Their food was simply the second best we've had in Chicago in 3 years after trying the ones in Wrigleyville, Arlington Heights, Ukranian Village, Bucktown, and River North. It was the best when you compare Price with the food though. Spiciness is on point, flavor profiles are there, and location has a... More

This restaurant was delicious. Only complaint would be portions are fairly small. Very flavorful dishes. Curry is tasty.

This restraint is a really nice mix of southeastern and Japanese food with a great atmosphere and good value. When we got there there we got a seat on the quietier side of the place abd took a little while deciding what to order. We ended up with 6 plates of really great sushi and a starter of noodles to...

I happened to go to this restaurant while visiting family in the Edgewater neighborhood. It is a cute little place with very artistic decor. The sushi was excellent and they had a nice variety of choices as they serve sushi and thai dishes. When our dishes took a little longer than expected to prepare, the waiter kindly provided us with... More

My husband and I went there on advice from friends. It was busy, so I'd recommend reservation. We had sushi and thai, both were tasty.

Really really good, the rooms are fantastic with art work on all the walls. Some fascinating stuff too. Staff is very friendly, atmosphere is welcoming yet kind of modern and snazzy. The food is outstanding everything we had tasted just fabulous. Fried wontons with a great filling, tempura asparagus, chicken satay with peanut sauce, tried their basic fried rice, the... More

Anytime we want Thai, this is the place. We just went recently and as usual had a great experience. We order the Indie Signature Mussaman Curry and the Drunken Udon Seafood dishes. Both are excellent! The kids share the chicken with vegetables dish. Yummy!

Food was great, service OK, the place can be a little bit crowded. We ate some mix of oriental food, plenty of choice for every taste. Mostly young people among the customers

We can walk to Indie Cafe so that makes it even better, but if I had to drive across town it would still be worth it. They specialize in Thai food and sushi. We have had both and both are excellent.
