I visited the Idian Garden with my brother and his 28 year old son for dinner. I'll admit we are Irish Americans. I love Indian food but I'm not an Indian food expert. So when we ordered our meals we didn't know what to expect....More

Dear John M, We thank you for taking the time to post review and glad to hear about your experience. We sure look forward to see you again when you back in Chicagoland. Warm Regards, Anu Sharma

Streeterville is where visitors head for play at Navy
Pier, a pseudo amusement park and development of
restaurants, shops, rides, and other activities.
You’ll find lots of action and excitement on the
docks. Along the pier, you’ll see the statue of the
captain for whom Streeterville is named. While you
enjoy your fair share of sightseeing at the pier, you
can also visit other popular attractions there such as
