Nice Indian Restaurant. Good food. Wish they had Paneer Tikka in starters for vegetarians as only option was Chicken Tikka. For the price we paid felt that they could improve on the vegetarian starter options.

Food was good. We had the chicken tikka masala and chicken vindaloo, but definitely could have been spicier even though our waiter said the vindaloo was really spicy. Only complaint was that the wine was overpriced. A $40 bottle retails for $9.99 at Target. Definitely not worth it.

Really not a good experience. From the indifference of the hostess, to the table by the kitchen staring at a greasy window, to the marginal food, it was a wasted evening.

They bill themselves as “fine dining”, but it was anything but. Explore other options if you’re looking for Indian in Chicago.

Our server was very helpful and attentive all night. He made great recommendations for the food choices at our table. We order paneer-pakoras, papri-chaat and punjabi goat-curry. The pakora-batter needed a pinch of salt OR some chaat masala post-frying to make-up for the lack of the right levels of salt; the papri-chaat was ordinary BUT the goat-curry is what I loved - took me back 30 years to back when I was a kid enjoying the curry my grandfather would make. It was finger licking good.

The chutneys that came with the pakoras were great BUT the 'aachar' - that should have been thrown out a long time back - its gone BAD and should not be served at this restaurant or any other for that matter.

Terrific food, okay service, pretty expensive. That sums up the evening for me. I'd certainly go again but it's tough on the wallet.

I was in town looking for delicious Indian food and I found it! It was super clean here and the style of the place was beautiful. My favorite was the yellow rice, chicken tandoori and kheer.

Food has gone downhill. We were told spices were eliminated to please tourists. We were tourists but appreciate good ethnic food and this was not at all like our prior trip. We can get much better Indian food in our hometown of Milwaukee.

Our experience was not good. The served chicken was cold and oily. The samosa stuffing was smelling like it was not freshly prepared. The steamed tissues was served quite early even when we have not started our main course.
