GHP hosted a farewell dinner April 2014 on the last day of Houston Mayor Annise Parker's Trade Mission to India. The service and teh ambiance was a great experience Appetizers at the Pagoda followed by dinner in the restaurant with some of the best food we had on our trip. Thank you GHP and Imperial for a wonderful evening

Nicely decorated restaurant and very efficient staffs & service ... But they lack on content... Quality of food is just average... I had Tom yum soup, steamed sole with Thai greens, Duck with onions & honey, chimes grilled chicken and chicken fried rice... Not a single preparation was worth mentioning... Good to take a foreigner friend to give him a... More

Restaurant decor was amazing - with artefacts, paintings, specially designed pillars, roofs which we were told took many years to complete. the service was outstanding and so was the food - we had Pad Thai, spring rolls and the salads. Portions were generous too. The only downside was the restaurant was a bit dark for lunch.

Delightful modern Indian cuisine in very nice settings. Staff were excellent and ready and willing to recommend dishes and have them cooked to your own spice taste buds. Not cheap but worth every penny

we admittedly were a bit tired after a full day and ate somewhat lightly. We tried a variety of small pan Asian dishes we had elsewhere in the world and none was " the best" The service was superb and cordial, as expected at the Imperial.

Beautiful restaurant and great choice of food - attentive service (mostly) though one of the ladies on the desk was a little standoffish on our first visit. I would really have appreciated someone telling me the story of the restaurant and a brief tour - it was not very busy and it would have enhanced the experience considerably. A little... More
