We've eaten at dozens of Indian Restaurants around Chicago and the country. This is simply the best and here's why. The smells, the quality, the flavors, the menu selection and service. We've gotten to know the "managers" and staff after being regulars over the years. No skimping on any of the aforementioned reasons as to why this places excels. This place qualifies as "fine cuisine." Excellent wines and beers. Fantastic atmosphere. Who would expect something this good in Buffalo Grove, Illinois? We are no strangers to India House. For those hesitant to try Indian food, this is the place to go. You can go as conservative as one's palate will allow or shoot the moon and experience true authenticity somewhat tailored to
American tastes and expectations.

We decided to choose India House rather than driving 20 minutes further to Gaylord's in Schaumburg. We quickly decided we should have made the longer drive. This India House is very outdated and unappealing visually. The staff was very unorganized on a Saturday evening. We had to wait for at least 15 minutes to be seated when there were available tables. Once seated it took a very long time for anyone to come to our table. The Taste of India appetizer platter was okay-nothing to rave about. The Shrimp Madras was quite tasty-enough leftover sauce to take home and use with chicken the next day. Other diners had India House mixed grill and Tour of Bombay platter. They felt it was just okay and were disappointed that the lamb was very dry. They said the chicken was good and the dal that came with it was quite tasty. Salads were served with the platters and after watching the waiter wander all over the restaurant trying to figure out who the salads belonged to one diner received a plate that actually had dirt on it! It was sent back and another one came out quickly. Very plain lettuce, tomato and cucumber salad-with house dressing--1,000 Island of all things! Many people were picking up carry out-that might be a better way for them to go. We won't be returning!

Need to ask your waiter to explain marks on the menu identifying how spicy those dishes are. Our selection items were so hot that it took us another week to finish them at home. They don't get spoiled by the way :)

Went for lunch Buffett. It was just bad food with attitude. Most of the dishes were over salted and had no taste. Don't waste time here.

Love having real good Indian food in the neighborhood and the kids love it too. Great buffet choices and many veggie options for my wife who is a vegatarian.
