Cafe India

The spic 'n' span kitchen is on display from the minute you walk in the front door of this popular Sugar Land Indian restaurant. The lunch buffet is the best bargain, with your choice of several curries, tandoori dishes, vegetables and naan for $8.95. The saag paneer is truly outstanding, as are the lamb curries. Patel is a veteran Indian chef; he opened his first restaurant in London 32 years ago, and he's been cooking ever since.
