Good Indian buffet option

Great spot for a quick lunch, they have a medium sized buffet option that's quick and satisfying. Seemed like a fairly decent selection of perhaps 20 or so food offerings and a couple items for dessert. I would likely return again especially if pressed for time for a quick business lunch.

This restaurant has a large section of Indian food, breads and meats. The staff was very friendly and the place was very clean. The staff were attentive and the ambience was refreshing. I will rate this restaurant as a top Indian restaurant in Houston.

Used to be a little hotter, so I would come here for that. Lamb korma still heavy on gristle and bone. Excellent chicken tikka masala. Rice pudding perfect.

The butter chicken is better than a lot of authentic Indian places I've been to I loved the warmth of the staff and the choice of wine to go with the food Everytime I visit Houston a visit is warranted Wish you the best

When my Indian friend recommended India to us, we didn't hesitate 1 second. I must admit, we were not disappointed at all. In fact, I wouldn't hesitate a bit to recommend India to my friends. We went for dinner on a Friday evening and we were very pleased. We went back for their Sunday brunch. Although it was good, my... More

We had an excellent experience at India last week. Warmly welcomed when we arrived, we were served by a highly courteous staff. Our food was delicious, well-seasoned and finely presented. Coffee service was great. The decor at India dates back a few decades we think, but we happily overlook this minor point as this is dining as it should be.... More

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

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
