Tandoori Nite

Parked fittingly in the parking lot of a Phillips 66, Tandoori Nite is the closest to an authentic Indian dhaba as you'll get in Houston (in India, the informal restaurants are always located next to gas stations). It serves an array of Pakistani and Indian food — all of it halal — and specializes in tandoori chicken. Bullet naan studded with jalapeño is a popular side dish to scoop up all of the beautiful, creamy sauce from goat korma or chicken curry, and the saag paneer is as good as any you'll find.
