Let’s get something out of the way first: Indian food in the Loop isn’t held to the same bar as the stuff on Devon Avenue. The lack of options simply dictates that excellent is not the goal; decent is. Having said that, we hit this lunchtime spot to satiate kebab cravings, as the minced beef chapli seems to be the standout item, followed by a respectable chicken boti. Skip the overly sweet, cream-laden chicken mahkani (ditto for the bland vegetarian options), but do opt for a fresh-fruit shake to end on a high note.
