My first, but not last, visit to this superb restaurant. Small and crowded. Get there just at opening for lunch or be prepared to wait or join a table of strangers. The lunch special was perfect for a sampler, with enough leftover for another meal/lunch. Delicious. Understand why it is so popular. Service timely and courteous.

If you like going to restaurants for the service and atmosphere more than the taste of the food, this is not for you. This place has been running for the last 24 years in the same place without expanding and when I went there in a group of 4, we had to wait since the place was full. This was... More

Talk about overpriced. Wow I could have had 4 lunches elsewhere for the price of what I paid here. Portion size for the lunch "special" was small. Drinks overpriced. When my buddy asked for an entree the guy refused and said he had to get the special because it would take too long. And then later on we see multiple... More

I read a few of the reviews. Yes, the service is not perfect. Yes, as soon as you're done eating they will want your table (it is a business, at the end of the day!). And yes, unusual situations will arise (like the owner-chef pushing you out of a table to accommodate a larger party, albeit done in a very... More

I read the previous reviews, I disagree with the food taste , I think the food is delicious, especially the garlic naan, the gravy dishes (chicken) and we loved it But the overall place is very simple/cheap, the restroom is not clean The service is not good and i guess this why the bad reviews, because they will ruin the...

Tip - don't go!!😱😱😱 We went here based on the rating a Houston newspaper gave them not the reviews (which were not great on TripAdvisor and other sites) silly us - lesson learned. Service 0/5 - highlights - the second we laid down the forks we we were asked to leave as they wanted the table - then they came... More

Another restaurant in Houston that serves food that hits you where it matters. There are comments about questionable service. It is what it is. We are not eating at a fine dining restaurant, but the owner Kaiser is always there and very friendly. Keep it simple and you cannot go wrong. The grilled meats, the curries, the garlic naan, the...

The food was very decent. Had nihari which was very very good albeit it a little on the spicy side. However, the charming man serving us was obviously dealing with some sort of a crisis of existence. The menus were tossed down on the table in front of us, the order was taken with a frown that would scare even... More

We chose a busy time, around 1pm on a Sunday. There was only one waiter who was doing a great job but he did not have time to advise or explain the menu and just needed us to order quickly. We ordered samosas and a biryani to share. We were told we must order two entrees. This was too much... More

Excellent Indian food.  We ate here with some friends and all got different plates. The chicken hara masala was excellent, but spicy. They say it's medium but that's Indian medium which is American spicy.   My wife got the chicken boti kabob and that was also great. It was definitely milder.  Get this if you want something not so saucy, it's... More
