There are a variety of North/South Indian as well as Pakistani restaurants surrounding this area, a mere glimpse of the culture that these countries possess. Filled with restaurants, grocery stores, and shops with Indian/Pakistani memorabilia/artifacts/cultural antiques, this place is great if you want some of the best Indian food in Chicago.

The Indian-Pakistani part of West Devon Ave. is not located anywhere near Park Ridge, as the TripAdvisor map suggests. It is located approximately 7.2 miles east on Devon Ave., between 2400 W. (Western Ave.) and 3200 W. (Kedzie Ave.), in Chicago, itself. You will find countless numbers of Pakistani and Indian restaurants, ranging from inexpensive to expensive. There are a... More

Great Indian food-we walked around the street for a while just window shopping. If you're interested in authentic culture, this is the place for you. Be sure to walk in to several of the ethnic grocery stores-and grab a frozen kulfi from a nearby convenience store as you walk!

It's a little slice of Indian and Pakastani shopping and dining. Khan's BBQ is really good food (watch out, the tandoori will turn your fingers orange), but good food can be found in a lot of the storefront restaurants, also. There are places to buy all things Indian and Pakastani. Once upon a time, this was a Jewish neighborhood (and... More

So much fun to go to Devon Aveunue. Quite a range of Indian cuisine, from the very hot Southern Indian to the less spicy Northern cuisine. Highly recommend this Chicago "neighborhood"!

I went back to Devon Avenue after a few years and felt that the character of the place changed a lot. I don't know whether this is good or bad. There is a paid parking lot owned by a very friendly owner/operator called Khan. (This is west of Mysore Woodlands.) The parking lot seems to have not finished. Several of... More

People say Chicago is a city of neighborhoods and this one exemplifies that motto. The area is very walkable, reachable on public transit, and very family friendly. When exploring our city definitely make time and take half a day to see this amazing neighborhood!

This place is ideal if you want to have great Pakistani and Indian food. There are a number of restaurants with diverse offering. Furthermore the area has a lot of shops offering Pakistani and Indian brands. A great place to hangout as well.

This part of Chicago caters to shoppers and foodies who desire, Indian groceries, clothing, jewelry and restaurants. My in-laws love to visit as it reminds them of Gujrat. If you haven't visited in about a decade many of the restaurants have renovated and look very modern in decor. Be prepared to haggle at clothing and jewelry shops.

We wanted to do/see something a little different and being from an Indian background it was interesting to walk along Devon Avenue. It is mainly just a wide range of restaurants, Indian grocery stores and clothes stores but was a nice way to spend some time just walking up and down. Went to Annapurna vegetarian restaurant to get a bite... More
