Went for lunch buffet. A lot of vegetarian options. Nice place for Indian food. Samosa was very tasty, spicy and crispy.

If you are familiar with the menu and you know exactly what you want, the food can be excellent. If you need explanation or clarification about various dishes, be prepared for major communications difficulties. We had a very frustrating and disappointing experience and won't return.

I got in to the city late, but wanted some real food that included some spice. I ordered at the bar and had a cold bottle of Voss water during my very short wait time. I ordered samosas, lamb rogan gosh and garlic naan. The portion was a nice size and rice was included. My food was hot and tasty,... More

The staff at this restaurant went out of their way to accommodate my special diet and the service given was superb, by all members of staff, but in particular by one person, who I assumed was the Manager, who met me at the front entrance and found out from the Chef, what they could cook for me. Very friendly, efficient... More

I've been to this restaurant a couple of times and each time vowed never to return. It's not the service that is terrible - it is the management that is unresponsive, apathetic, and rude to any feedback. I ordered samosas as appetizers (approximate $6) and they were soggy. However, even for this trivial amount the management did not make any... More

We've been here in the past a couple of times and were very pleased with what we ordered from the menu, but for Sunday lunch, only the buffet ($13.95) was available. We've eaten from plenty of Indian buffets. This one was mediocre. Many of the items were so soupy that they just all mixed together on the plate--so generally muddled... More

Staying in Residency inn, this was the closest restaurant for Indian food; so we had been here for dinner on a Friday night. We had booked a table earlier; anyway when we reached the place it was not full; but by and by it got crowded. Both south Indian and north Indian foods are served here. We had ordered Taj... More

Came across this restaurant by accident and so glad I did! The food was excellent and lots of it! Had dinner with a work college, great range of food, did not want anything too spicy! Our waiter gave us lots of recommendations, all great. I will visit again when in the city.

Staying in Magnificent Mile

Neighborhood Profile
Magnificent Mile
Over 400 stores pack the concrete along Michigan Avenue, the eight-block stretch known as Magnificent Mile. This area between Oak Avenue and the Chicago River is more a shopping paradise than a full-out neighborhood. For prime upscale shopping, this is the place to go. 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.
