We went to dinner during Restaurant Week. The food was delicious and I can’t wait to go again. The service was great, the staff was nice and very helpful. Also, Ras Malai is my new favorite dessert.

Good Indian fare. The place was busy, but had room for me on a Wednesday night. It was rather loud, with several large groups at tables nearby. The menu was complete with Indian selections, though not exhaustive (did not cover all Indian cuisines). I got...some vegetarian samosas, lamb rogan josh and garlic naan. The food came out with good pacing and was tasty.More

The restaurant is up on the second floor of an unassuming office block and much care has been delivered to conjure up a rustic Indian themed venue. That's the good bit. Sadly the kitchen produced a series of bland, brown entrees which blended in with...the mounting disappointment. Service was Ok, but intrusive as the restaurant was not busy and there were excess staff milling around with nothing to do other than interrupt diners for compliments.More

Second time I’m here with family for lunch within the last six months. Both times the buffet was excellent. Usually the service at Indian restaurants is poor. But it’s exceptional here. I’ve been to more than a dozen Indian restaurants in Chicago. I must say...this has one of the best lunch buffets in the city.More

Was looking forward to trying out Indian Garden Restaurant as the reviews on Trip Advisor were very good. We went for an early dinner. When approaching the entrance to the building it did not look to appealing. The restaurant is on the upper floor with...many stairs to climb. The restaurant entrance is nicely decorated. We ordered half Tandoori Chicken, Dal Makhani, Baingan Bharti and Tandoori Roti. The dishes come with plain Basmati Rice. The portions are big. Disappointed in the Tandoori Chicken. It was so dry. Must have been reheated possibility from their lunch buffet. We did make mention of this to the server but her answer was "Tandoori Chicken is always dry". Well yes Tandoori chicken is dry but if made properly the meat inside is moist. Just my taste buds but I did not enjoy the taste of the dishes we ordered. Something different in the spices used in their dishes that did not appeal to me.More

Water is the only good they served well. Biryani when asked with high spice level got a rice bowl with red chilli powder and meat. One of the terrible experience, even manager’s response for our comments seemed unfriendly.

I visited this Indian restaurant which is located off the magnificient mile in Chicago, 6 years ago. When I went back to Chicago this year, I thought I should try again. I went on my own for an evening meal. Did not need a reservation....The restaurant is on the first floor, 37 steps. Has ethnic Indian decor. Clean and spacious. The manager was courteous and the waitress was very friendly. I had a started, main course and nan, raita and a beer. The paneer was very tasty and full of flavour. The nan was perfectly done. There is a big choice for both meat eaters and vegetarians and vegans. If you are going as a group, advise booking in advance. Overall, a very pleasant experience. Also went the next day for a buffett lunch for $20/- which was pretty good (excluding drinks). I have no hesitation in recommeding this Indian restaurant.More

I had food from the lunch buffet. The first thing to note is the limited selection ( unless you are vegetarian) 1 goat dish, 1 lamb dish , 2 chicken dishes , all other dishes were vegetable dishes. All met dishes were light on meat,...heavy on sauce. You had to search for the meat For appetizers there was 1 soup, spinach pakora or salad. I typically add salt to most things I eat , which is a bad habit. No need here, everything was over salted, and to me , inedible. I still had to pay for it though lol. Service was poor, had to ask twice for soft drinks, and 3 times for naan bread. Definitely would not return.More

Ok, so I haven't been to India... but I live in the SF Bay Area, where food is king. This is better than any Indian restaurant I've ever visited. The food was absolutely delicious -- delicate when it needed to be; intense heat at times......just divine. We ordered the murgh curry and the chicken was superbly moist, better than in any curry I've ever eaten. (Yes, yes, I know this review is full of superlatives, but they are all true!) We also ordered a chaat dish: Chandini Chowk Aloo Tikki, which I had never had before and it was absolutely delightful -- a surprisingly complex and balanced mixture of sharp, sweet, tangy and soothing flavors, all at once. To top it off, the setting is lovely. You can't go wrong by visiting here.More

This is one of the best Indian restaurants I've had the pleasure of visiting. Everything we ate (vegetable samosas, crab curry, murg vindaloo) was absolutely fantastic. We will be back for sure! The dishes weren't terribly expensive either, especially for downtown Chicago.
