Food is good, but not as great as some people are raving about. I didn't like their appetizers as they have same batter for everything. Mix veg Pakora had bell peppers and zucchini slices. No paneer or cauliflower. May be they are thinking of non-indian eaters... We ordered 2 plates of Pakora...it is OK but my 12 year old says... More

Our first waiter was entirely "too familiar" and didn't allow us time to peruse the menu or chat with our guests. The food was OK, not great. Our second waiter kept trying to take away dishes before we were finished and seemed as though he wanted us to just leave. Will not return.

This is an OK large restaurant in a basement location that you can see from the street. Traditional staples like Chicken Tikka Masala and Vegetable curry dishes are available. Alcohol is offered. Service was slow and we waited for over an hour to get our food.

We obviously had the worst waiter there. Our food took nearly an hour! He forgot my glass of wine, and rarely even came by the table. I would have complained to the manager, but my companion hates that because it makes a bad visit worse. His food was very good, mine was okay, but I was so angry I couldn't... More

I had tried Indian food millions of times while living or visiting london but oh boy, really nothing was good! Don't get me wrong, nothing disgusting but a 13 zagat rating, no more! I never liked buffets, after this experience I will never go back to one! Not an happy camper

# Indian #indianfooover # vegetarian There are plenty of Indian food restaurants in Chicago but not many of them will impress you, assuming you are a fan of real Indian food. This place, though, is a among the better ones. I would rate it as - Ambience/location - 8/10, food - 8/10, service -7/10 and overall - 8/10. Located in... More

A couple of steps down and past a long bar is dining area with superb staff and fine chefs that create great food in the Indian tradition. The Samosas are superb, as is the Tandoori Chicken and any Dal you might try. Their Lassi drinks can be thicker or thinner, depending on who makes them, I presume.

Went for lunch on Sunday. Food quality was good but the service was awful. Also extremely crowded. It took them 10 mins to find us a table.

Every time we are in town, this is our can't be missed go-to Indian food restaurant. Dishes are consistently great - vindaloo is especially good and so are the saag dishes. Also love the complimentary "starters" table at dinner of veggies and papadum chips with sauces. Service is attentive. Prices reasonable. Give it a try - you can't go wrong.

It’s busy, energetic, and packed with shoppers. You'll also find hundreds of restaurants and dozens of hotels, all on the mid- to high-end scale. Some of the city’s most iconic buildings like the Wrigley Building, John Hancock Center and other architectural marvels define the magnificence of this neighborhood.
