    Just like Devon

    This is the best Indian food place in Chicago not on Devon -- and might even be better than those places. The dining room isn't very big, but it's right by the Davis Movie theater so it is a nice post-movie place. The samosas are delectable and I am a huge fan of the Chicken vindaloo (even if they don't take my word for it when I ask them to make it as spicy as they can). Also, as will make or break any Indian place, the Naan is great.

    Good India food

    One needs to check this place out. My girlfriend and I .. we love the place.. I get what I crave for each time, sometime when i don't have time i get delivery it is the same ..quick and hot. I love the Butter chicken and tikki masala..my girlfriend is vegetarian so she loves the mutter paneer and other veg.. they also have great bread .. Try it ..you will love the food and service..

    If you are in the neighborhood...

    The service here is excellent and the atmosphere is nice. However, the food is inconsistant. Sometimes it is fabulous, other times it is mediocre, and the same dishes taste a little different each time. It is also a little bit overpriced for what you get. However, I still eat here often since I live nearby. It is some of the best Indian in the neighborhood, if you don't want to drive the extra distance to Devon.

    Excellent Food

    The food here is absolutely delicious. It's quiet atmosphere makes a great place to grab dinner after a movie at David. The yogurt chicken rocks.
