Great food, ambiance, and service! Just that they closed before we could finish the food. Would've been nice if we were informed well in advance (at least 30 mins).
Great service and good food.
Our first visit and it did not disappoint! Great options on the menu, good bar selection and pleasant service.
Went for Restaurant Week, but ended up ordering the buffet. Everything tasted great and the staff was so nice.
Nice casual neighborhood spot. Restaurant could use some updates. Food good and staff friendly. They have a large takeout business.
Not a lot of people when we were there. But the food was delicious and we loved it!
Delicious Indian and Nepalese food. The Momo's were fantastic. Lots of options for naan. The lamb paneer and basmati rice were very good. The mango lassis were outstanding. Very large and varied menu, so I will definitely be going back to try new things.
The food was very tasty, spicy, but not overwhelmingly so. The very hot spicy dishes were identified and I stayed away. Two out of three of us dining we’re first timers, us two first timers partook of the brunch. For our other friend, this is her fave place, she ordered menu items. The brunch had a great variety, so much food. The naan was OMG good, my only negative for the brunch was the sauces weren’t labeled, so they were a mystery. They also could have had one more person servicing the guest to insure more promptness! Definitely will go back!
Nepalese food is spicy but we loved the buffet lunch.
Great Food. EXCELLENT service. Reasonably priced!
Great authentic Indian food. Owner was super nice. Great dinner.
Exceptional food, HUGE menu. Served family style so you can share and try a variety of different dishes. We will definitely be back.
It was nice experience but they didn’t ask us the level of spicy but didn’t stop us from enjoying food.
One of the best Indian Restaurant’s in Chicago. Food is authentic and is spices just right. They have many types of bread options & Great selection of desserts.
The menu was quite expansive. We could have used assistance from the wait staff on what to order. Our dishes were quite unexpectedly spicy and, although well-prepared, we could barely eat them due to the heat of the dishes. This was not indicated on the menu. If the waiters had advised us about what to order we would have enjoyed the food much more.
No background music, that would be a nice addition to the restaurant. We waited about 10 min and then had to ask someone to take our order, but after that service was good. Matter paneer was a little bland, the Malai kofta was so yummy and so were the veggie mo mo dumplings. Prices are ok, about $15 for a vegetarian entree but that includes rice (a lot of Indian restaurants do not). This is our go to Indian restaurant in the South/West Loop area. The interior is almost like someone's cozy home. Overall, we really like this place.
A good neighborhood Indian restaurant. We had chicken tikka masala and butter chicken and the chicken wasn’t great in either of them (not super soft), though spices were good. Paneer sag and Nepalese cauliflower were excellent as was the garlic naan. Service was decent.
Nice place with good Nepal style food we really enjoyed
Great place for business lunch! Small buffet but excellent choices. Will be back again.
The waiter insisted that we over order. The food was very average. I never leave negative reviews but this was a true disappointment.
My reviews always reflect similar restaurants. I consider Curry House to be a mid-range family-friendly restaurant. I came with a group of 6 to celebrate my college-aged granddaughter’s birthday. We chose this spot because she is vegetarian and we wanted food choices that everyone could enjoy.
Things were great from the very beginning. We were greeted promptly and seated immediately. Service was outstanding. Our server answered all of our questions and made some excellent suggestions. We ordered a LOT of things, so we got to taste a broad number of choices. Food was just EXCELLENT and we had a lot to take home.
Birthday girl thought the vegetarian choices were VERY GOOD. She was visiting from Austin, Texas and said she would really like to come back when she visits again. The meat lovers (the rest of our party) really enjoyed this spot, as well. Some of us were more familiar with Indian food than others, but all agreed food.
I would suggest that the restaurant provide some small offering for the person(s) celebrating a special occasion. That is always a nice touch and makes your patron feel you have read the info that we put on reservation.
All in all a really good restaurant that I will return to in the future!
Food was good, but unfortunately, the bar was disappointing. Didn't have any selection available of white wines listed on the menu.
Waited 10 minutes for order to be taken. Thirty minutes later, the appetizer had not arrived. Upon asking to leave, they were happy to have me pay for my drink and leave. No explanation, no apology. Perhaps the worst experience at a restaurant ever. (Could not evaluate quality of food because I did not get any.)
Excellent food . . . very good service . . . a south Loop gem!
Fantastic food. Third time I have eaten here, all for business and they never disappoint. Highly recommend.
The reception wasn’t very warm, but the food was delicious. We didn’t have to wait long, and I was pleased to bring home leftovers.
Tasty food with good choice of different meals for the buffet, pleasant ambiance, excellent service! Can't beat the price!
The food was good, but service was slow and unaccommodating. Would only recommend for take-out.
The food was quite good. However, shortly after we started eating, we noticed gnats or fleas on the wall beside us. As the meal progressed, they began hovering around our food and drink. When we mentioned it to our waiter his response was that they noticed them about an hour before we arrived and did not know why they were there. By the time we left we counted eight of them crawling on the wall above us. When we spoke to the manager about it his response was that an inspector saw them 2 days prior to our being there and he suggested that the next time we came we should sit at a table on the other side of the room. Needless to say, I told him that we would not be returning. I was extremely disappointed with the excuses we heard from the staff, with no apologies.
Great experience and food at Curry house. I had ordered the Mo Mo and chicken Tikka Masala garlic naan were fantastic, they come with rice, They served Papadum and three different sauce compliments as I seated at table.
There menu looks so many dishes , restaurant looks clean and nice. Server so helpful . I will tell all my friends go Chicago Curry House when you in Chicago.
Always great quality and variety. So yummy!
We haven't been to Curry House in several months. It used to be a treat to go to, this time it was horrible. For example, we ordered a half-chicken Tandoori. We got 3 legs, a thigh and a wing. No one cared. The prices are high, the food mediocre at best and the service poor. We will never go back.
Surprisingly delicious cuisine in a quiet neighborhood setting. Fine service, great value.
The chicken tikka masala did not tastes like any chicken tikka masala I have ever had and I don't mean that in a good way
I had the lunch buffet. It wasn't very good.
We booked this at 6 pm for three people on OpenTable. The party was me , my 23 yr old daughter and her roomate. When we were seated, they did not say hello, welcome, nada...they said " you must be out of here at 8 pm" we said, no problem. It took several minutes to fill our water and take drink orders. When they finally came by to take our dinner orders, he began by saying " you must leave before 8 pm" . No smiles, no help, not polite. We ordered several entrees for the three of us, no appetizers to slow an order. Clearly, they were preparing for a large private function. It took over 20 minutes for Malai Kafka,Veg Korma and Saag Paneer to arrive. These should not take that long. The food was good, but the servers were tense, rude and didn't refill our drinks after food arrived. I gave a 20 % tip,which was not deserved. We left at 7:50 and nobody ever said thank you or goodbye.
Food was good but it was a busy night. We were put in a corner and forgotten about. Very difficult to get wait staff attention.
They put a weird extremely spicy sauce on the tandoori and a separate bowl of it mentioning it was hot. My mother made the mistake of putting on her whole plate, made all the food inedible. We like spicy food too. Service was bad when I told them about the sauce they didnt say much or even really respond. I used to like this place but hadn't gone in a long time. Disappointed gone down hill. I will not be returning.
The food was good but the service was disappointing. We made a reservation for 7 pm and arrived at 7:05. When I checked in with the host he found my reservation and then told us to sit at the bar for a few minutes. We sat at the bar for about ten minutes and no one came to take any drink order. Then I reminded the host that we were still waiting for a table and they led us over to a table that had been open and ready the entire time we were sitting at the bar!
The food was very good, especially the chicken momos (dumplings) only they forgot to them in our order so we had to ask for them again.
I got the impression that Chicago Curry House is probably better for take out than eating in.
