They restaurant was a solid 2.75 out of 5. They are expensive, they don't include rice with their $20 entrees and their restrooms were so dirty I vowed never to go back in them. I did a to-go order last week. Now this week, I...get a text message with 14 other people with poor quality pictures of menus. Strangers are replying, so my phone is blowing up because of their poor decisions. WILL NEVER EAT THERE AGAIN.More

Absolutely hated this place. It's in the middle of a dead mall, dim lights, non-welcoming waiter, and really bad food. It felt that it'd probably been cooked ages ago. Tasted stale. Surely a mistake to visit. I'm usually not this harsh with any of my...reviews, but this place was just a downer!More

I had ordered to-go from this restaurant. It was pretty late when I ordered but they had my order ready - the service was nice. The folks who had my to-go order where cheerful, greeted me by name, offered me water and we ended up...chatting for 10 minutes. The food was good. We had the dahi papdi chaat for appetizers - i had one for my son and they gave all the condiments, spices and chutneys on the side so it wouldn't be too hot for my 7 year old. The Panner Makni was tasty and was spiced according to our taste buds. I liked the dum aloo. The aloo paratha, and the panner kulcha were quite good and I particularly liked the peas pulao. The ras-malai dessert was bad. It almost felt that the milk based dessert had curdled. we didn't eat it. Overall the dinner was good with the exception of the dessert.More

Visited to celebrate a friend' birthday party. We were group of 12 and they greeted us at door and the staff were so friendly, they served delicious food and best part was the hot masala chai at the end. Loved the Chicken Tikka Masala and...Saag Paneer.More

This review relates more to the management moreso than the food itself. The manager, Venkat, proved to be unprofessional with his response to a catering order. This was our second catering order this year, and this particular order was for a party of 40. A...delivery fee was paid and the promised delivery time was 7pm. At 7:15, I called to inquire where the delivery was, and the person who answered did not know why there was a delay and said the food was picked up at 6:10 pm. The order arrived at 7:45 when the majority of guests were at the venue, and the delivery person stated that traffic was the cause for the delay. We then had to set the food up, while guests helped. This was definitely an embarrassment. After a few text exchanges with Venkat, he stated that the delivery person said someone on the road had a seizure the delivery person had to assist and wait until 911 arrived. I found this to be a cooked up story and was disappointed that this was all he could come up with in 48 hours. Another 24 hours passed and I contacted him again and stated i did not need to chase good customer service and requested that the delivery fee be refunded. This time, Venkat came up with another story that the promised delivery time was 7:30...nice try, but not the case. Finally he stated he would not refund the delivery fee and this was Houston and there is "traffic". I found him to be extremely unprofessional, caustic, and most certainly does not need to be customer facing. I will not do business with this restaurant again, and will advise everyone else I know to do the same.More

You expect buffet food to be kept hot all the time. We went at 12:30 pm and all the dishes were Luke warm and or cold. When we complained the staff toot the plates with food and put it in the microwave. This is not...the way to serve the food. Some dishes such as potatoes and cauliflower were half cookedMore

We went here for lunch with some colleagues. I am not always a fan of buffets but I enjoyed the quality of the food here. The surrounding mall looks a bit dilapidated but it means there is plenty of parking. I would come here again.

Gourmet India is my "go to" source of a quality Indian buffet on the weekends. The management and servers are polite and attentive and insure a pleasurable dining experience. While not a massive buffet bar, the basics are covered and the items are fresh and...tastey. My faves are the fresh baked naan, chicken tikka masala, goat masala, keer, and the mango mousse (great dessert to end the meal). Don't let it's location is a strip mall fool you, the ambiance inside is very nice and gives a high end feel. Again, the staff are prompt with taking your used plates away and keeping your beverage glasses full. I try to eat here every 2 months or so when I get in the mood for Indian cuisine and have had good experiences here since 2010. Give them a try, you shouldn't be disappointed!More

We've always eaten the buffet, which is vey good. The strip mall in which it is located is not very attractive (mainly empty stores), but this restaurant is well worthy it. In addition to standard items (e.g. Chicken tikka masala, pulao rice, etc.), they usually...have different items as well, like goat curry and broccoli aloo. Overall, they are recommended!More

Whatever is your favorite Indian food, the place to come is here. The samosas are delicious, butter (masala) chicken you will want to lick the plate and palak paneer will not disappoint. I had a party and order several pans to go and it was...a real hit, can't really speak of the restaurant itself because I haven't dined in...yet!More

While most Indian restaurants have good chicken curry, finding good goat curry can be a challenge. This restaurant serves Goat Curry at its best. Pieces are properly cut and I believe they use fresh ingredients and spices that produce good taste with great aroma. We...had other dishes here and they were all good. A must try.More
