Nehari and seek fry are probably the only two items I would recommend here. The naans are good. Servers don't pay attention so you might want them to repeat the order before they ruin your meal. Don't ever order Chicken Makni was horrible. They claim to use boneless chicken but it's more like shredded chicken. Not worth your money !

Used to be good but now the quality has gone down hill real quick. Would not be going back. For good Nihari in Chicago area try Shahi Nihari

I don't have a lot of experience with Indian or Pakistani foods, but what we had was good. The samosas were great, frontier chicken, grilled chicken and some butter chicken were good. The service was just average. The waiter was not very accommodating, and i felt like he was giving us a slight attitude for not knowing all the dishes.... More

Pakistani/Indian resturant . Friendly staff. Food is served fresh , bread is freshly baked. We tried Nihari ( beef curry) it's hot and spicy but tasty. Do not order more than 1 dish for 2 people because you will end up taking it home as they give you more than enough food. Finding a parking in the area is a... More

I've been to Sabri Nihari several times in the past several months, always returning to their Frontier Chicken. Depending on whose in the kitchen, sometimes it is quite hot, sometime not so, but always a favorite Pakistani chicken dish with rice. They also serve some of the best Samosas on Devon Street.

This place looks good when you enter but their food needs a lot of improvement. Their specialty is Nihari but it was Ok. Brain masala was not so good. Overall I would rate this place as average. I won't be back to this place.
