Gaylord Restaurant sucks! I ""WAS"" a loyal customer ... but I am never going back there ever.

My experience from yesterday -
I walk in the restaurant ... I wait for their staff to attend to me and my husband. The manager and wait staff knows we are standing .. yet .. he totally ignores us. Finally after 10 minutes he says ""Please wait!"" ... Thats all? He doesnt give us an approximate wait time either.

So we wait ...

Then a waiter .. unpolitely .. raises his hand in gesture to call us ... ""Ae, you? Come!""

Whatttttttttt? Am I in Bombay at a chaat corner ... actually thats not even close to it .. even they are more respectful ...

So I think .. ok maybe hes having a bad day ..

Finally we are seated .. and then guess what we have to wait for another 20 minutes for someone to take our order .. I didnt mind that since they were really busy. But is that an enough reason for bad service and nonattendance. Even the people sitting on the next table were irritated by the same fact.

We ordered Samosas, drinks, chicken tikka, murgh makhani, rice, naan ... The food was alright. Samosas were cold and seemed to be sitting out for days and the chicken tikka was super salty.

Now here's the most interesting part .. so I have left overs and request the waiter to pack the food. I have paid 65$ + tip (IN FULL, i might add) for 2 people at this overpriced restaurant (which i would not mind if they offered good service and food).

Now one would except to get all their left overs for the food they paid for. Right?

Not at this restaurant. They only decided to pack and return the salty chicken tikka. They kept the rest to themselves. Wowwwwww!

Would you want to go to such a restaurant. If I were you - I wouldn't.

Bad service
Bad waiter staff
Cold appetizers
Overpriced for nothing in return

Cons: See details

The food is good, although not the best Indian cuisine that I have ever had. Service was very good and waiter answered our questions very well.

It is a well known fact that Chicago is one of the worst big cities for Indian Cuisine. Typical, uninventive, north indian fare is recycled in restaurant after restaurant, with too much oil and not enough flavor. Compared to D.C. or L.A., chicago ranks quite poorly in terms of sophistication and artistry in representation of Indian Cuisine. Consider a real gem, Swagath in New Delhi's Defense Colony, and you will realize that Indian cuisine can be truly remarkable and brilliant. Swagath recently received a 5 star review by the New York Times for the amazing indian cuisine of Jayaram Banan. Every dish we ordered was exemplary when we visited last year. I wish Chicago had great Indian cuisine like Swagath. Gaylord is one of the better Indian restaurants in Chicago, maybe (in my estimation, the best). But it is nothing compared to the Indian fare you receive in other areas of this country. I highly recomment the owners of Gaylord buy a ticket to Delhi and try Swagath. Do yourselves a favor, and see how far you fall short of greatness.

Pros: Best Indian restaurant in Chicago, but that is not saying much

Cons: Far from extraordinary

.

There is no value for the money paid and the personnel are unhelpful and rude. There is little value for the money paid also. I would not recommend this one definitely. There are much better Indian restaurants like India House (If you want Indian food).

Cons: Lack of value for money paid / Rude and unhelpful staff

If you want to waste your money on indian sounding food this is the place. Besides the place was crammed, you are almost eating into the next persons plate and the treatment was a nightmare. I would have given negative rating if had a chance.Food was no where indian, i would have cooked better food. The prices are also so high there.

PROS: Stylish place and that's it
CONS: Not authentic, high priced, horrible service.

The ambiance and the decor were very good, even our waiters were attentive though we had to ask a few waiters to replace our dirty water glass. I was not particularly impressed with food selection (vegetarian or non-vegetarian) or quality.

Pros: Ambience, Decor, Service

Cons: Food, Crowded

I heard that the food in Gaylord was good and that's the reason I decided to try thr buffet. I was very dissappointed. I did not like the buffet and felt that there was not enough items. The taste was not particularly appetising too. There are so many good Indian restaurants in the area .... you can sure go elsewhere.
