“Ok at best.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 29, 2012

For a place that considers themselves to be a great competitor in the indian food market, they lack the authentic indian food taste that other locations in the area offer. This place is OK at best. The owners really need to do some upgrading on the place.

“Bad News”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 12, 2012

This eatery has mediocore food and the servers are in your face to much. The food was not anything special and the service was like the waiters had nothing to do but interupt your meal everytime you finished a plate,we had the buffet. It was NOT a Relaxing experience and I would NOT recommend it. Avoid it, the food was BAD NEWS!

“A la carte much much better Buffet”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 6, 2011

Been there twice.. Once for dinner and the food that was ordered was real good and made to taste. That made us visit again BUT for lunch.. Realised that buffet wasn't all that good and quality of the items weren't as par or upto taste or quality as compaired to ordering it..

Also, the service is a bit slow and distracted. So if you do plan to go, have some extra time on your hands.

Suggestion would be to order than try the buffet..

“Great food, but...”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 7, 2011

The food is absolutely GREAT when ordering from the menu but the buffet is not exactly suited to the Indian Pallete; too bland I'd say!
The ambience is quite alright, although I do think they need to update the place.
The service is poor, very poor. There is usually no one to talk to, the three times that I've gone there now. The place feels orphaned!
BUT...there is no other restaurant in the area (Chicago northern suburbs) to my knowledge, that serves food tasting even half as good as India House, so I must say, it'll do for me!

“Good, but not the best”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 31, 2011

Given the options in Chicago, this is a good restaurant. They have good vegetarian/non-veg platters to start. Drink menu is limited and lacks a scotch. Quantity of food is good, and most often I end up getting a box in hotel.
If you are visiting with clients, then this is one of the better options. If you are alone and want good food, then there are a few Desi dhabas in Vernon Hills worth visiting
