This place looks good when you enter but their food needs a lot of improvement. Their specialty is Nihari but it was Ok. Brain masala was not so good. Overall I would rate this place as average. I won't be back to this place.

I have visited this place about 5 times and i was never disappointed. Their food, service and tradition is unleashed. I have seen people of all races enjoying their food. This is spirit of true America and they are uniting people via food. Keep it up Sabri's you are the best

We went for lunch and ordered the best vegetarian samosas followed by the Dahl, palak paneer, and their famous frontier chicken dish. There were three of us and we had to box jump and bring home at least 50% of this most delicious meal. The staff were delightful, hospitable and the decor was very pleasant. I highly recommend this place.

During our recent visit to Chicago we went to this place for lunch having heard great reviews for this place. It sure is nice the staff friendly and helpful. We ordered Frontier chicken, garlic naan and goat Biryani all three were good especially the frontier chicken. Definitely recommend!

This is perhaps the most popular Pakistani restaurant in Chicago – certainly the most popular restaurant on Devon Street. I went there for dinner with a couple of friends on Saturday night, and we had to wait about 30 minutes to get a table. The restaurant has to live up to its name (there is a very popular Nihari house... More

Sabri Nihari is one of those top notch halal places to go to in Chicago, and its prominence is well deserved. The naan is perfectly cooked and their nihari is just incredible. The nihari has got a perfect blend of spices-giving it that incredible taste. Also, I would recommend getting the Frontier Chicken to combo up with your nihari and... More

Love almost every non vegetarian thing they serve. However the veggie curries are not up to the mark. But, if you are a spicy non-veg lover - this is heaven. I visit there often to taste the biryani, chicken or mutton curry and yess - the falooda at the end :)
