“Nice restaurent with excellent service and very good food, but the portions are very large”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 22, 2013

Had dinner there one night, the waiter was very friendly and helpful. This is a large and tastefully decorated restaurant but you need to take a few steps down from street level to get to it (no view or windows). We got there early in the evening and had our choice of tables and were seated immediately. The waiter was a bit pushy in trying to get our orders so we appeased him by ordering an appetizer. This was a mistake, since by ordering an appetizer and then a special rice and nan (Pyazikulcha) with the meal it was too much food for two people. The food was very good, the spinach rice was excellent, the Seikh Kabab was nicely seasoned and well cooked and came on a bed of onions, the complimentary mango salad was excellent and presented a nice change from the usual and the chicken dish (Murg Badam Pasanda) was well done with the level of spicing being very acceptable. The fact that you get rice and nan as part of the meal makes ordering the special rice and bread just too much. Since we were leaving the next morning, we could not take the leftovers, what a waste of good food. We would definitely go back.

“Gaylord 555 Mall Road Schaumburg IL 60173”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 21, 2013

Undoubtedly one of the finest Indian restaurants in Chicago. The great interiors, comfortable seating, delicious authentic indian food and great service makes this place a delight for any Indian visitor. It is also moderately expensive and real Value fro money. The excellent service by the Restaurant manager Mr Daron made this experience all the more memorable. It was a truly great dining experience. We understand the lunch buffet is also a steal for the amount of approx. Rs 13 US $.

“very good food and excellent service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 10, 2013

The food was quite good, but more notably, the service and overall atmosphere was excellent. We arrived just as the restaurant was about to stop serving food, but they were completely gracious and accomodating. We had our 17 month old daughter with us, and everyone was very friendly towards her and went out of their way to help. For the price, a great place to go. White linen tablecloths to boot.

“Not bad”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 3, 2013 via mobile

Food was ok but I was expecting more for the ride downtown. Parking is expensive. Food was tasty and decent but you can do better. Service was quick and efficient.

“Excellent Indian Food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 13, 2013

I have brought many friends and family to this place. I go at least 2-3 times a month and I really enjoy it! I think their buffet is phenomenal too! Try this hidden gem!
