Gourmet India

One wouldn't expect to find such a delightful Indian restaurant located outside of the Mahatma Gandhi District of Houston, but Gourmet India is an oasis on the west side of town serving up some of the best Indian food in Houston. Lunch is an all-you-can-eat buffet of breads and dips, salads, curries, vegetables, and grilled and saucy meats. Dinner is à la carte, with everything seen in a traditional Punjabi restaurant: samosas, saag paneer, chicken tikka masala, tandoori prawns, lamb curry. The saffron-seasoned basmati rice, which is distinct yet delicate in flavor and comes steamed with peas, is a perfect complement to the rich dishes. Use the naan - flaky, buttery flatbread - to mop up the spicy sauces. The staff is friendly, eager and helpful. Whether you like your food spicy or not, whether your companions are carnivorous or vegetarian, there is something for everyone at Gourmet India.
