This is a very solid place for Indian (and Nepalese) Food in hipster-dominated Wicker Park. Most of the menu is pretty traditional Indian food that one would find at any Indian restaurant in the US or Britain: samosas, pakoras, chicken tikka masala, lamb vindaalu, biryanis...More

Two couples reserved ahead for an early Sunday evening dinner -- avoided any crowding, and had an excellent experience. Starters of excellent soup, samosas, dumplings -- prompt and tasty. For mains we then focussed on varieties of lamb -- best was the saag -- veggies...More

Everything was fresh - nothing seemed frozen. Tons of flavor - just incredible. The naan is brought fresh to the table. Great people watching on Milwaukee and view of the water tower. Definitely not the healthiest food - I'm sure they go through truckloads of...More

One of the better Indian/Nepalese restaurants in the Chicagoland area. Excellent food quality and decent bar. Was fairly busy for a Monday evening and the staff looked a bit overwhelmed. I think they were short on staff with no host or a full time bar...More

The food is genuine and loved by our friends from India but don't go for $13/ person lunch buffet. Few and poor choices. Almost no chicken, no other meat. We tried to order off the menu because of the limited buffet choices but actually they...More

Probably the best Indian food we've had in Chicago. We've been looking for awhile! We had the Chicken Tikka Masala, Chicken Makhani, Garlic Naan.

We're from Vancouver, Canada, which has a large Indian population and many good Indian restaurants. So we know a thing or two about Indian food. All the Indian restaurants in River North are terrible and unauthentic. They don't even smell good when you walk by...More
