I haven't been to Hema's since she moved from her original location to west of Western Ave. on Devon. My dinner was as delicious as were numerous meals at the previous location years ago. We asked Hema for her recommendations and followed her advice. The...More

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

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

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...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...More
