Always delicious. Hadn't been to the River North location before, but standards were the same (or better) than the excellence I've experienced at the Schaumburg location. My friends and I ordered Aloo Gobi, Chicken Tikka Masala, Goby Fish Curry, and the Palak Paneer - all of which come with rice, and then we ordered Naan. A. Mazing!

We came in to celebrate my brother’s birthday. They put us in a back room that was nice and quiet. We were lucky to be the only ones there. Our server was very friendly and knowledgeable. I ordered butter chicken, and it was one of the best I’ve had. We ordered chicken samosas, and the pastry alone was worth the price of the whole dish. I’ve not had a samosa as well executed. The dough was perfect, not too crunchy and not too chewy. The flavor was incredible. I wish I could buy the dough to make my own at home. Who am I kidding? I’d probably just fry it and eat it like chips. Yum!!! I sampled the dishes of a couple of my friends, and everything was wonderful. They even brought out a special dessert for my brother and had no issues with me bringing in a cake. All in all, it was a great experience. We will definitely be back!!!

First time there. Our server helped us pick vegetarian dishes. We loved all of them (except one, but it was still good). She was also very attentive. There were two of us. Two appetizers, two entrees & we went home with leftovers. More than enough to eat. Would definitely recommend & return.

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.

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.
