Went on a Tuesday evening after work. When we sat down it felt as if a majority of our waiters were very shy. It was difficult to get any recommendations for food or a quick explanation of what something was. The food was delicious! Slightly overpriced but good experience overall!

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!

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.

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!

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.)

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.

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.
