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.

Hands down, the BEST Indian food to ever pass my lips. I was very encouraged when 90% of the patrons were Indian. Perfect blend of spice and savory in my chicken tika masala. The nan was light and crisp. Waitstaff was efficient and polite. For the quality of food and service the price was fine.

This is a very spacious restaurant with well dressed wailers ready to welcome you. The ambiance is very good and the setting is excellent, though it is downstairs. We went for dinner and ordered 3 vegetables and naans. Everything was tasty, however, the price was on higher side as compared to other Indian restaurants in Chicago, may be due to... More

Gaylord food is usually good and it's one of my preferred places to eat in Chicago and Schaumburg. The only trouble is when you dine in, the price including tax and tips (around 30%) will look steep on an already pricey menu. I you take your family for a dinner and paying for the whole group, you are going to... More
