We came here with great expectations. Food was average. Service was below average. Def not the best Indian cuisine in Chicago.

The restaurant has good vegetarian food and large portions. Two people can share a plate of biryani. The staff is polite and friendly. It's very close to Chicago Getaway hostel (about 8-10 minutes on foot). So if you're not in the mood to cook, you can head on over here. The place is nothing fancy or interesting and does not...

We really like this Indian restaurant in Lincoln Park, We especially like the #41 Bhendi Masala which is a Vegan Okra dish and the Gosht Rogan Josh which is a Lamb Dish. Reasonable prices

Love Indian food and this place did not disappoint. We ordered 2 dishes, chicken tikka and the other a shrimp dish on top of rice. They both tasted authentic and full of flavors. The place is clean and has good amount of space where you dont feel cramped. Relative to most restaurants that serve as good or better food along... More

When you walk in, this restaurant looks nice. I expected it to be a good Indian restaurant, but I was wrong. The water glasses on the table were dirty. The food arrived about 40 minutes after I ordered, and it was far from cooked to order. I ordered the Aloo Gosht (mild) and it came extremely spicy. Our waitress was... More

Had friends coming into town from Wisconsin and made plans to get lunch on Devon. As the local, I was tasked with choosing the restaurant. Not knowing the options well myself, I googled the night before and found Hema's Kitchen. Comments online sounded good. Listing said they opened at noon. Called them anyway to make sure they were open for... More

The food is decent, but the wait times are indescribable. Also it's not first come, first served...A large table who came in after us was served first. Not good. The service was laconic at best, and the kitchen is clearly overwhelmed. I was in there on a busy night over the Labor Day Holiday and we waited over 40 minutes... More

Suggested years ago to a friend by an Indian friend, this seems to be one of the best on this section of Devon. Even WTTW Channel 11 agrees. Hema makes sure everything is "home-made" just like for her own family. Ours was great and I'm sure other dishes are. Reasonable price. Parking difficult in the area.

We met six of our friends here and had a wonderful time. We started with appetizers which were all wonderful. The main dishes were great as well as the nan. It's a BYO place so keep that in mind.
