    We won't blame you if you wanna get in on everything at this authentic Wicker Park 70-seater's Nepalese lunch buffet, where you'll likely get delicious saag with corn or paneer, and allll the samosas. Read more

    All the food was delicious and they have a very impressive knowledge of their menu. I have a lot of food allergies and felt as safe as could be since the manager told me what was in everything.

    They have a lunch buffet but not a dinner buffet, FYI. Had great service and love that it feels very classy and clean. I do prefer the chicken tikka masala from India House tho. Still good!

    The goat biryani and chicken sahi korma are excellent. But the heat was a little extreme and did a number on my digestive system. Ask the waiter if they can lower the spices to medium or mild.

    Authentic Indian south of Devon can be tough to find. Throw in Nepalese, an array of curries, platters, and cocktails and you might not go back up north. [Eater 38 Member]

    The tamarind and mint chutneys may be reason alone to visit Cumin. But, wait, the menu offers a dozen different breads and Nepalese dishes, all prepared by Chef Min Thapa. - Inspector

    The food here is incredible! The garlic naan is a perfect appetizer. I'd suggest getting an entree and splitting it, as there is plenty of food to share.

    They dont have momos for lunch which is crazy! Biryani is mediocre at best (I'm a biryani snob)! Chicken 65 couldve been better. Pistachio kulfi is amazing though.

    Absolutely fantastic. Came on Saturday and they have a buffet. I normally don't do buffets but the food just looked and smelled so good...and it WAS!

    I tried a couple of the Nepalese dishes, the goat was super tasty. Everything I tried was well prepared and delicious. Try the dumplings!

    This is actually two places: by night, it is flavorful and interesting place with some Nepal food. By day, it's a lame Midwestern buffet

    Great food. One of the best naans in the city. Super slow service. Better off with delivery or lunch buffet.

    Better food off Devon for the price, but if you get the lunch buffet it seems like the best deal.

    The $12-13 (weekday-weekend) lunch buffet was tasty, but had less options than India House downtown. Check your bill - ours had 20% tax on it.

    The Chaat samosa was the best 5 bucks I've spent at Indian restaurant in a long time.

    No sé que días sea pero pidan el buffet los sábados. Cuesta sólo $15 dlls y así prueban un poco de todo ya que son sabores fuertes. Hello Nepal! 😍
