Planning a wedding can be very stressful at times. However, one of the many joys of planning a wedding is when you can find that restaurant or caterer to simply nail it. Sabri Nahiri did just that, nailed it. After over an hour commuting through Chicago area rush hour traffic, we ran into the Manzoor Conlon Wedding Tasting hungry and parched just in time to experience a full spread presented elegantly by Sabri Nihiri Restaurant.
Devon Avenue is known for the long runway of Indian and Pakistani fare. We entered Pakistani heaven at Sabri Nihiri Restaurant. We did not get very far before we could smell the love from the kitchen, which told us to just come on in. So, running in we went, tackled in the face with the smells of curries, cumin, other herbs and spices, and all sorts of other aromas that made for a struggle to those of us addicted to good food.
The delicately flaky pastry of the samosas was enough to reunite any recovered food lover’s passion. The potatoes, green peas, and spices made it an absolute must for those of us with no qualms about stuffing our cheeks.
Well-made vegetarian offerings was refreshing for the non meat-eater at the table.
The Naan is the best and fresh from the clay oven. We loved their garlic naan. The chicken was so tender that you could cut it with a plastic fork. The Basmati rice was decent quality, aromatic, and satisfactorily spiced.
One would venture to think that Pakistani food would be light, but the gravies are hearty and the bread is filling. The more you stuff into you, the fuller you become. Besides, Indians and Pakistanis have a habit of serving super sweet desserts.
The restaurant atmosphere is very nice, upscale and organized.
Honestly, you cannot go wrong with anything vegetarian in this restaurant, and the chicken dishes were delicious as well.
