Indian Cuisine is distinguished by its sophisticated use of spices and herbs and the influence of the long-standing and widespread practice of vegetarianism in Indian society. Food is an integral part of India 's culture, with cuisines differing according to community, region, and state. Indian cuisine is characterized by a great variety of foods, spices, and cooking techniques. The founder of India House, Jagmohan Jayara, has always wished to serve society with food that touches the soul and brings to life the Indian culture. To fulfill his dreams, he opened up India House Restaurant in Schaumburg, Illinois in 1993. Our Schaumburg location is now a banquet and catering facility. The overwhelming response from the community has encouraged the creation of 3 more locations in Hoffman Estates, Buffalo Grove, and Downtown Chicago.
