Have lived in Houston multiple times over the last 30 years. Started eating at Ashiana 25 years ago. It has remained my favorite Indian restaurant in Houston. Lunch buffet is awesome. Best tikka masala ever. The GEM of Indian restaurants in Houston.

I've been going to Ashiana for years, back with Kiran Verma owned it. The prices are high but the quality is very good. While the lunch buffet is a few dollars higher than most, it's the best way to experience Ashiana. Chicken Tikka Masala is excellent as is the Vindaloo. Spices are just right, not overly spiced but not wimpy... More

The Chicken Tikka Masala is the best in the city. The restaurant was not crowded however we noticed there were a lot of to-go orders being picked up. Highly recommended.

This is some of the best Indian food I have had while traveling. Dishes are la carte and prices are moderately high when everything is added together. However, the food preparation, flavor, and presentations are consistently outstanding and service is "fine dining". There is a wide variety of choices and I was pleasantly surprised with dishes I have not tried... More

Recently moved to this part of town. The Indian food here is excellent. I tried a few dishes I have not had anywhere before and they both exceeded my expectations. I've had Indian cuisine numerous times and have a favorite place in Singapore for it. This rivaled my experiences there.

This is the best Indian restaurant in Houston. The food and service is excellent. I lived in Houston for 3 years and visited this restaurant at least once a month.

Probably 20 items to choose from--many main dishes and sides and salads and sweets. However bill was over $20 including an Iced tea and tip which seemed high for a buffet place at lunch. My friends from India tell me the food is authentic. The Nann (spelling?) bread is very tasty and fresh. Table cloths and nice upscale decor

Thank John B
