Our Story

Michelin Award-Winning Restaurant in Chicago

In Chicago, the culinary legend of Sabri Nihari was born with founder Mr. Abdul Wahid Butt in 1996. From a modest spot on Devon Avenue, Sabri Nihari gained fame for its signature dish, Nihari.
The excellence of Sabri Nihari quickly spread, captivating both locals and tourists. The aromatic allure of dishes like chicken biryani, goat biryani, frontier chicken, chicken tikka boti, and haleem drew people from all over the city.
While rooted in Indian and Pakistani cuisine, our appeal knows no bounds. We’ve become a favored choice for banquets citywide, enchanting guests from prestigious hotels to suburban venues.
Our influence extends beyond Chicago, catering to events across the nation. Upholding the authenticity of Indian and Pakistani cuisine, our legacy stands strong as a cherished institution, uniting cultures through the universal language of food.

What Clients Say

One of my friend’s favorite restaurant. I’m glad I tried it, it was good. Restaurant appeared clean as well. Service was nice and prices were decent.


Best pakistani food in all Chicago. Came multiple times and tried multiple dishes. It is the best.


PUTTING Pakistan ON THE MAP! As an American Pakistani this was a great experience and emotional one seeing authentic Pakistani food being served here! Keep up the great work.


I pre-ordered “Chicken Chargah”. This dish takes fried chicken to a whole new level. Add to that the delicious sauce and fried chicken is no longer just a fast food item.


First time here, and it’s as good as everyone says it is! Loved their dishes- from samosas to frontier chicken to the naan, you really can’t go wrong.


We ordered Nihari, Bihari kabab, & nuggets with fries, Ras Malai & falooda. Everything was fresh and tasted delicious. The plus point of the Restaurant was their customer service.
