Hyderabad House | Rogers Park/West Rogers Park | Indian/Pakistani | Restaurant
Cabbie hangout with a pool table and some worthy south Indian chow. Cash only.

Our Review

Hyderabad House is a home away from home for cabbies who want to shoot pool, watch Bollywood musicals, and grab some good grub before beating it back to the beaded seat. Even if you don’t drive for hire you’ll enjoy the subcontinental food prepared for hard-to-con customers. Here are some savory creatures, all halal: lush mutton in a thick sauce is frequently seen on the changing menu board, as is chicken lagan in a fluorescent magenta-colored sauce. Dhai ki kadi, a delicious veggie dish, is wheat gluten in a blindingly yellow curry. Along with generous helpings of fresh griddled naan you get a lot of rice here, and that’s a good thing--sops are essential with the tongue-tickling sauces. Sometimes there’s a man offering paan--a potent mix of fennel, betel leaf, and herbs--which makes a pleasing, stomach-settling wrap to a meal. HH shares a parking lot with an auto repair shop, so you have to weave your way around the never-been-pimped beaters to get to the front door; once inside, though, you’ll find good-hearted folks and worthy south Indian chow.
