Our favorite Indian in Houston

Great authentic indian food and good service makes this the best Indian restaurant we have been to in Houston. It's a bit out of the way location wise if you live inside the loop but not to far

The service is world class, with every member of the staff providing a personalized and family feel. The food is phenomenal, with the added benefit of a knowledgeable and understanding staff, who will gladly help first time guests with where to... More

Disgusting experience- rip-off: On January 04, 2015 I have called for the food quote for 30 people gathering for Birthday party out of which food for 5 people to go. I was very much specific about the food items we were needed and the manager got that item written down, he put me on brief hold and quote me the... More

I have frequented this place at least 3 times and twice the food was stale. The only time when it seemed fresh was when I asked something that was not on the menu. So perhaps that is the trick to get freshly prepared food and not food that has been reheated by adding butter to get rid of the stale... More

The reason for my title? well I've never been to India but we do have great Indian food in Britain and the food at Indias is certainly comparable to anything over here. I've been here twice, for dinner, and its always been pretty empty thus there isn't much atmosphere and you sometimes feel that the staff are desperate for you... More

I was in town for a conference, and I ate there by myself. Maybe they don't appreciate tables taken by one person. After I was greeted and seated, I went to the buffet to get food. After that, I could not get a refill, and I could not get any naan. I could not get the attention of any server.... More

I ate goat for the first time. The waiter helped me pick the correct dish . My wife had chicken korma along with fresh bread and rice. Everything was blue ribbon. Our bill was$40.00. Give this place a try. The name of the business says it all.

The food was not bad, but also wasn't the best. Nice place for a date or even a family dinner. I had the chicken makhani and paneer makhani. The chicken was pretty good.

Perhaps one of the better places taste wise but does not feel fresh. Tried multiple dishes and that was the general conclusion.
