    They’ve had this location open for about 8 months. Service is so bad. No clue what they are doing. Bars TVs didn’t work…” they are still trying to get TV service.” I had to log on to my account for them to turn on the college World Series. Bartender had no clue. Food was sub par at best. This was a Friday night and it was dead. No I know why. This restaurant will not make it.

    Service is always wonderful. Kitchen staff needs a little help. Food doesn't come out all together, mine was cold and one of the orders was wrong.

    This is by far the worst restaurant claiming to make Indian. It's a total rip off, food is substandard. We were a party of 6 and ordered quite a few things but all dishes were made of chickpeas, Naan or potatoes. The prices were phenomenally high for the absolute rubbish that was served. Save your money ! Run far away from here.

    This place was the best Indian food I’ve had, the service is phenomenal, very fast and the food is shareable sizes. I’d 10/10 recommend.

    I ordered two dishes - Achar Bhindi and Chicken Karahi The portions were really small- I mean ‘small’ The Chicken Karahi was oily and greasy !!!!! The Bhindi dish does not taste like any Bhindi dish I have had anywhere else. The food is horrible!!!!’n There were no Desi’s at this place. The service was sub par. I was laughed at by a staff member for a comment I made about the portions. Please do not bother going to this place for ‘Indian’ food. You will be disappointed ☹️ 😩😡 I am so disappointed 😩. I was hoping to find a decent Indian restaurant in the Rice Military neighborhood. This place is a bummer and I am never going back.

    This was incredibly disappointing. I had gone one other time a few years ago and I remember it being delicious and reasonably priced. This time the food wasn't seasoned, tasted like a sad knock off of actual Indian food and the portions were ridiculously small and the cost was outrageous. $120 for 3 people? Insanity.

    The food was delicious, and the drinks were equally excellent. It's a little pricey, but it's well worth it. We wanted to sample the new lassi, but we were already stuffed from the meal. Definitely coming back!!

    We loved our experience here! They are definitely a new restaurant, trying to solidify themselves but they are 100% a worthy contender to go up against any other brunch/dinner spot. The food was DELICIOUS and portion sizes were not crazy huge, which I love. Excited to see this place grow and rooting for them!

    We were left underwhelmed. No reason at at all why a small cup of curry has to be $18 regardless of the quality. Speaking of quality, well, nothing much to say. Didn’t seem the food was top priority for the restaurant.

    I hope all the construction on Shepherd doesn't hurt these guys, because the food is great! Everything was flavorful and delicious. We went with a group so we could try a bunch of dishes. The Whistle Pig cocktail was delicious. We'll definitely be back.

    Seems like Opentable and the restaurant are not in sync as to what is available or not. We didn't get the patio table as we had reserved which was the whole reason as to why we wanted to go there.

    We went for Mother’s Day and the restaurant was extremely under staffed. We waited 15 minutes to be seated, another 20 minutes for our drinks to come out and then another 1.5-2 hours for our food to come out one-two plates at a time. The food was good but not at all worth the multiple hours it took.

    Don't waste your time and money! Went recently with my wife. At the first, we were very impressed with the menu options showing online. When we arrived the place seems pretty busy, It sad thing that they only have ONE person helping people. The guy serving was doing too much, assisting at the bar, serving tables, cleaning, and taking orders. The only person working was that poor guy doing everything with no help. I'm not sure if this is in a day thing but I wasn't expecting that on a Saturday. On the other hand, the food quality was okay, the mix of seasonings was not that great, avocado on a hamburger tasted too old and it was black that was disgusting! the food presentation was very poor. The most important thing, my wife and I noticed that the restaurant owner doesn't implement the rule of a MASK during this pandemic. We noticed that people walk in without a mask, bar stools are placed at the bar, NO SOCIAL DISTANCING is in the place. The restaurant owner was behind the bar without a MASK, attached is the picture of the restaurant owner. Never coming back to this place and dont waste time on going there at all...!

    First time here. There were four of us with one being vegan so after Googling we decided to try Cowboys and Indians. The food was fantastic. We tried two appetizers and four entries and all were delicious. There was only one guy running the front acting as waiter, bartender and busboy but did a great job and very pleasant to talk to. We will most definitely be back.

    It seemed like an exciting Indian/Texan fusion but it didnt seem to work quite well. Chicken vindaloo tastes very basic like any other Indian curry. Nothing exciting. Himalayan burger was ok. Too spicy to taste other flavors in it. Prices are very high for an average service and food. No precautions were taken for COVID 19. A family was sitting right next to our table, less than a foot away from us. Probably will not return to this resturant again.
