MICHELIN Guide’s Point Of View

This good-looking stage is a refreshing and welcome respite from the heavy-hitting Devon Avenue spots. Named for the mythical weapon of the Hindu God of Thunder, the dining room is hugely appealing, thanks to an array of windows draped with billowing fabric, intricately carved artwork, and a spectrum of purple hues.

Born in Nepal, Executive Chef Min B. Thapa is no stranger to Chicago's culinary scene. His cooking is replete with wonderful, rich flavors and unique methods, as might be sampled in the crispy pakoras, samosas, and flaky parathas, all of which arrive with a medley of zesty chutneys. Mains, like perfectly tart and boldly spiced lamb vindaalu or marinated tandoori goat chops, reach sumptuous new heights when accompanied by soft jasmine rice.
