“Taste of Pakistani food”
Reviewed July 13, 2014

We went to this place on a nice Friday Ramadan evening. Its crowded and crowds are still coming! We were waiting for a good 45mins to get a seat. There were some snacks and rose milk was served for the people waiting in queue.
Food - lots of Pakistani dishes in veg and non veg. I had a nice paneer mutter and my muslim friend had Haleem. The naans are really good and smooth. One naan is more than sufficient for one person. Inspite of waiting time the food taste made us happy finally.
The service is super fast. The waiters are running to take care of their orders. Average courtesy though.

“Awesome pakistani food”
Reviewed June 27, 2014

Family of four visited on mother's day: Mom got a rose as a free gift from the hostess! Waiter was very helpful to guide us through the menu, and all staff were very friendly and attentive. Food was simply awesome. Fantastic, complex flavors with plenty of spice. We shared three dishes and each one was excellent, and so much food that we had leftovers to take home. Dessert was fun and delicious. HIGHLY recommended!
It was also great to walk around Little India: the neighborhood it is located in.

“Excellent & fast service, wonderful meal”
Reviewed May 25, 2014

We were there on the Memorial Day weekend so the place was PACKED and the waiting line long, but it was not a very long wait. The waitstaff move with amazing speed and the food was wonderful, the best we've had in any Chicago restaurant. I wish they had more lamb options (most are beef).

“Well worth the ride”
Reviewed April 26, 2014

A friend of mine from Pakistan suggested we try this place while traveling in Chicago, so we did and it was so worth it. It was quite the ride for us. It took us over an hour to get there from Bucktown between 45-50 minutes of train riding and another 20 minutes of biking from the train station, but it was well worth it. The food was amazing. The service was great. The value was perfect. We traveled inexpensively, but ate like kings and this was the cheapest meal out of the entire trip.

I was even impressed that our server remembered our entire order without having to write any of it down. I would recommend this to anyone who takes a liking to Pakistani food.

Sabri Nehari is a must when you are in Chicago. While the location is about 10 miles away from downtown it's worth the visit!

- excellent food quality

Don't miss out!
