Indika

516 Westheimer Rd. Houston, TX 77006 | Montrose | 713-524-2170

Location Description:

Montrose's Indika may be the best Indian restaurant in the country. What makes Anita Jaisinghani's food great is that it's not only among the most creative takes on Indian cuisine in America, it's also muy picante when it's supposed to be. In New York and San Francisco, innovative Indian chefs have to please wimpy local tastes. But here in jalapeño-happy Houston, Indika's fabulous, fiery Indian cooking is truly appreciated.
