Nice size menu with lots of authentic Indian choices plus some unusual ones not on the regular Indian menu as well. Spiced hot tea was wonderful! Make sure you indicate spice level - we requested medium and it had quite a kick. Delicious food!

Great all around vibe....
Attentive service with a beautifully calming atmosphere.
Decent wine list including bubbly by the glass; Also tried imported beer from India.
We started with lamb samosas and coconut curry shrimp....both exceptional.
If you are looking for something on the mild side, I highly suggest the chicken in almond sauce for an entree...tasty rice side dishes and variety of nan breads are a must. Had the rice pudding for dessert. We look forward to dining here again and trying more authentic fare!

The restaurant that meets you expectation of authentically spiced Indian food. This place is not far from O’ Hare Airport and welcoming out side and cozy inside. Food is good and is tastes just the my kind of authentic Indian taste.

Visited lady night. Noticed that some of the reviews had slow service listed. I expected it and was pleasantly surprised that it doesn't seem to be slow anymore! Service was great, food was well above average, prices are very reasonable and the ambience was relaxing. Overall a great little place to go!

Loved the ambiance. The owners have spent a lot on maintaining a certain look which also extends to their restrooms. They have ordered most of the furniture from India and it looks beautiful. Reached there on a saturday afternoon and it was fairly quiet with just one more table occupied. The manager was friendly and let us change the table when we asked to out of sheer preference. I asked for their best appetizer and he was quick to say that "try out anything and you wouldn't be disappointed". I let him know that I have not had good experiences with some other Indian places saying that to me. He then made specific recommendations based on what I was looking for. He seemed interested in getting to know our preferences and helping us order accordingly. The menu is also not a typical Indian restaurant menu. They have put some work into the items they offer. My friend and I enjoyed the appetizers and tea we ordered which encouraged us to order the main course. Items we ordered were Paneer ke Shooley, Adraki lamb chops, Pindi Chole, Missi Roti and Gajar ka Halwa , Kheer for dessert. Since they didnt have Kheer available, we received a replacement dessert as the Chef's compliments. It was a refreshing experience at an Indian restaurant where the food did have the flavors they were suppose to at a fairly decent price($$).
