Chicago's Indian food is not only delicious, it's authentic. And it's also an excellent value. Heaping plates of basmati rice, naan (a pita-like bread), grilled meats, samosas, dosai (a thin crepe) and bean and vegetable dishes will guarantee you leave stuffed and happy. Have some water or a cold beer handy, because some of these foods are spicy! When we're in the mood for Indian food in Chicago, we head to Indian Garden - a reader favorite - or we count on Udupi Palace's solid track record and consistently great dishes. You'll find these places - and the other restaurants on our list - to be fantastic options for Indian cuisine. If you're looking to concentrate your efforts, start along Devon Avenue, in the far north side West Rogers Park neighborhood. It's home to a mile-long stretch known as "Little India," and is also an international melting pot of Asian, Russian, Pakastani, and Orthodox Jewish residents.
