Our Story

ADDA, in India, means “An everyday place or spot where friends gather”.


Our food presents the classic yet unexplored charm of India’s diverse regions combined expertly with the local flavors.
Housed within the bustling metropolis of Chicago, this is not just any other restaurant. This is your ADDA, your place which brings people together, to tell their stories and share memories.
We pride ourselves on recreating Indian local dishes and reinventing age-old Indian traditions, to create an experience that raises a toast to the old times and celebrates the new.
ADDA is not just about food, it is all about flavors, memories we bring onto the plate from our mother’s kitchen.
