Owner Hema Potla serves up her authentic, home-style Indian cooking to the West Rogers Park area inside this casual dining room elevated by small Tiffany sconces and white tablecloths. The thing to order is the lamb vindaloo, a spicy and comforting dish perfect for a chilly day, which the team here is happy to make even hotter upon request, bathing the lamb in a flaming hot gravy with potatoes, coconut, and curry leaves. Feel free to bring plenty of friends: the restaurant can accommodate large parties and is BYOB, so you can bring plenty of wine, too.
