The food was good, not the best Indian we have had but good, it was reasonably priced and the service was very efficient. Lots of choice and variety and reasonable portions, one rice was enough for 2 adults and a child

Visited here with a party of 4 midweek for an informal dinner with friends. It was my first time dining at this restaurant, and would definitely visit again. The Indian Garden is in a great location in downtown Chicago, and is a short Uber ride from Union Station. While I was not 'wowed' by this restaurant, the amazing and authentic... More

Not so well organized, there's like three waiters for the whole restaurant. Food was good but the service not so much. It was a long wait just for somebody to offer us drinks, which was disappointing considering the good reviews.

I went for dinner on July 16, 2016 after reading good reviews. I was shocked and disappointed to experience very poor and pathetic service. It seemed that the waitress kept up with the table with more than one guests as opposed to I being there as one guest just next to the table with more than one guests. She never... More

This is my second time feasting here and the food seems to be better each time! I'm not good with remembering the names of the menu choices, but I suggest trying a variety of appetizers just like we did. You won't be disappointed. My dinner was a lamb dish. If you're sensitive to spicy then please consult with the waiter... More

Another visit to our favorite Indian restaurant in Chicago. Chicken 65 was mouthwatering!!! Tandoori mixed grill was fabulous and enough to feed 2 people.Chicken madras was also outstanding. Have not had a bad dish from here yet. Very friendly service.

Only went here for the lunch buffet, which was awesome. Good selection of veg and non-veg dishes thoughtfully placed at separate locations. Many veg choices: aloo bonda, bhindi, gobi, mixed veg, paneer, dal. For non vegs: sausage, tandoori chicken, tikka masala and goat curry. The icing on the cake were 2 desserts: gulag jamun AND rasgulla - hit the spot.... More

I went to this place for a quick Indain curry. They have a fixed buffett for 15 dollars. I had 5 different vegetarian curries to choose from. All were very fresh and tasty. Worth visitng if you fancy an Indian in Chicago.

Staying in Streeterville

Neighborhood Profile
Streeterville is where visitors head for play at Navy Pier, a pseudo amusement park and development of restaurants, shops, rides, and other activities. You’ll find lots of action and excitement on the docks. Along the pier, you’ll see the statue of the captain for whom Streeterville is named. While you enjoy your fair share of sightseeing at the pier, you can also visit other popular attractions there such as the Chicago Children’s Museum and the Chicago Shakespeare Theater. Off the pier you’ll find more restaurants from low-cost pubs to high-end establishments. Arts and culture aficionados should be sure not to miss the Museum of Contemporary Art.
