My husband and I were in Chicago
over the weekend and had a fun and relaxing dinner at the Indian Garden. The food was excellent, but what really "made it" was that kind and personable service by our Romanian waiter (arrived from the Timisoara area 8 months ago). He was very knowledgeable and helped guide us through the menu choices and made our meal fun."

This is a good alternative to all
the pricy Steak Houses in the neighborhood. If you want a reasonably priced tasty Indian meal in a venue with a pleasant Asian decor, this is a good one."

The decor in this neighborhood gem
is spot on. With lush fabric and melodic fountains, you're instantly transported to another land. The food was delicious and plentiful, the service friendly and prompt. My husband and I were delighted that they serve kashmiri naan, which is one of our favorites."

We really like this restaurant. In
this age of high noise levels, the restaurant is quiet and you can have a nice dinner and talk. The food is outstanding as always. We will be back time and time again."

Wasn't my first choice but after
1st choice went Out of Business and 2nd choice did a blanket cancellation of all reservations I went with Indian Garden. Thanks La Grand Vie and Bandera.... Even with reservations we needed to wait about 25 minutes and then the valet couldn't find multiple patron's cars. He actually drove up with random vehicles and asked "Is this your car?" We waited another 25-30 minutes in the restaurants cold hallway until our car arrived."

A great place for the Indian food
lovers. The variety of dishes is very impressive, even at the lunch buffet and by far more so in the extensive menu. The cousin is reasonably authentic according to our many Indian friends. The staff is friendly and efficient. We had to wait 10-15 min even though we had reservations and one of us had a flight to catch, but then everything was very efficient and fast. No mater whether there are only two of you, or 20, it is a great place for lunch or dinner."

Is a great Indian restaurant, the
decoration includes lots of Indian statues and things. Food great. They have Indian wines I wasn't aware there were any"

This is our family's favorite
Indian Restaurant, and it never disappoints. They grind their own spices fresh every time, and it makes a huge difference in the aromatic flavours of their curries. They will adjust seasoning for folks who like it less heat. This second floor gem has a lovely ambience. We had a large party there once for 30 people, and they gave us the back of the restaurant and were very helpful in planning the menu and arranging the room so we could mingle before sitting down. We often come for dinner before a movie at River East 21."

Rasmalai and Kheer desserts are
not authentic. I suggest avoiding them."

The Indian food was well prepared
and the ambiance was very comfortable. Attentive, but not pushy, service."

Hadn't been to IG for awhile and
forgot how good it is. There's nothing terribly unusual about IG's food, but whatever they do, they do very well. We had cottage cheese pakoras for openers - light and subtle. We shared a great shrimp dish and the vegetarian thali. All perfectly cooked and delicious. Owners and waitstaff were attentive and friendly. Prices are fair (though I thought $21.95 for the thali was a little high). The decor is attractive and comforting. All in all, if you're in the neighborhood and want Indian, you can't go wrong here."

It was better than the 21 Zagat
gives it, particularly since we had the buffet. Food was authentic, well made with attentive staff. Price was 15.99 which was reasonable. The decor was GREAT! and very typical of a place in India and in my opinion very tasteful. In my opinion if I were to rate it based on Zagat 23 for food, 25 for decor (not 15) and 23 for service. So Zagat needs to send their surveyors to other countries to get it too!"

Just okay - food could be better
and spicier. Liked the menu, but service was not the best. And not so kids friendly. Overall just satisfactory to me."

Indian Food is one of my favorite;
reach spices and flavors. The only issue I had was with the very slow service. it took almost 20 minutes for a waiter to take our order."
Dined on 10/13/2013
The service was slow and we were
greeted almost as if they could have cared less that we came to eat there. Fortunately the food was excellent and therefore the evening was enjoyable. I just the host showed a little more enthusiasm about our presence."
