Good Indian cuisine

Khyber Pass is a very good Indian restaurant in Oak Park. Good flavors, ingredients are fresh. Lamb Vindaloo was appropriately hot, and lamb was surprisingly tender. Good selection of appetizers-more variety than one often finds. Good friendly service is also efficient.

This is one of many good places to eat in Oak Park. Consistently get good food, friendly service at a reasonable price. The food has developed flavors and always satisfies. I would recommend this place to anyone. They also have many gluten free options.

Don't let the atmosphere fool you. The food is amazing! They have a buffet where you have several choices; but, I stick to the menu and have the same meal every time (it's that good). You taste the different spices and the naan, yummy!! The staff are on the quiet side; but, make sure you get what you want/need.

The restaurant is one of 19 taking part in Oak Park’s Thursday Night Out, a May-August program of al fresco dining, late shop hours, and live entertainment. Dine-around tickets sold at a kiosk at Lake and Marion get redeemed for the evening’s specials, a few ready choices at each place. I enjoyed the chicken tikka with basmati rice, my daughter... More

This is a typical Indian restaurant. There are not many Indian restaurants in this area. Food is average, I tried their dinner buffet which had decent variety of curries including some signature indian dishes such as Palak Paneer, Chhole and Butter Chicken. My visit was on a weekend and they had a side-special of Tandoori Chicken which was served on... More

Situated right on Lake St, Oak Park, this was a perfect place for us to have lunch when visiting Oak Park for a one day trip. The place seems to be quite popular for lunch (a good sign) and prices are OK. We had the buffee and a couple of beers and glasses of red wine which ended up at... More

This is a quiet little restaurant on Lake St. In Oak Park that has really good food. We usually have the outstanding chicken vindaloo and frontier gosht (lamb). The service is efficient and the prices are reasonable. What the it lacks in personality it makes up for in really good food.
