This is our favorite part of Chicago and we stop here every time we drive through. We've tried many restaurants even in one day and have found that the smaller quick eats are much better than the fancier "higher rated" restaurants. Parking can be an issue so I'd recommend finding a side street to park on and walking to where you want when it's nice out. So far we have focused on food here but would love to explore the shopping in the future.

We spent couple days in Chicago and both days we went to Devon avenue for Indian food but only thing good is they have big Indian grocery store. Food is overrated and parking is nightmare. We were serve cold food on both days in 3 different restaurant and it has blend taste. Would recommend Taco bell or something similar instead

I just love Indian material culture–food, music, textiles, jewelry–so when I travel I look for Indian shopping streets. This beats similar places like Manchester’s Curry Mile, Iselin, New Jersey, or Manhattan’s Little India both for its size and variety. One end of the street is mostly Pakistani. Ladies with everything hidden but their eyes and hands push strollers and shop for halal foods. The other end is mostly Indian with fancy wedding saris and lehengas for sale. You can also buy groceries. The well-known Patel Brothers chain got started here. Should hunger overcome you, there are many restaurants. There is at least one jewelry store offering 22 karat gold filigree work as well as book and music stores. Whether you are a homesick South Asian, or anybody else looking for a good meal or some unusual shopping opportunities, this is your place. There are empty storefronts with signs indicating they will soon be occupied, so the street is ever-changing.

Sari shops galore, great resturants, music, bookstore, markets. I love this street because you're transported into another world. In the early afternoon or morning the street is quiet and you may even be able to find a parking spot but later in the afternoon its jumping with people and activity.

Devon Avenue, west of Western Avenu, has long been the center for Indian and Pakistani dining and shopping. Restaurants and tea rooms, excellent. Clothes shopping? Mind blowing! For a gringa, finding such beautiful and wearable clothing from the subcontinent filled my suitcase. Beautiful clothes, handsome men’s clothes, really reasonable prices. I love going there when I visit Chicago (my old home town)
