daily fish, shrimp or scallops, peanuts, sesame seeds, coconut, tamarind
mushrooms, vegetables, paneer
pulled tandoori chicken, honey & saffron tomato sauce
The ambience and staff / service was great. What we did not like was the mushroom peas curry (very bitter) and Delhi chat (very dry). Paneer tikka and paneer butter masala was perfect along with butter and garlic or lasooni naan.
They were so accommodating for my 20th birthday! Very COVID safe and friendly and they gave me a free dessert!! Love Kiran’s
Great Indian food, service was outstanding and a overall pleasure.
Overall really good but service was a bit off usually server is really on top of it but not today
Excellent service and exquisite food. Our ‘go to’ fine dining experience for Indian food.
Excellent! One of our favorite restaurants in the world
We came for Diwali dinner. Our waiter barely paid attention to us and rarely asked us if we wanted drinks or refills. It was so bad that the waitress for the table next to us volunteered to bring us what we needed.
We dine often at Kiran’s for years now since 2008 and we love the food and exceptional good service.
Unfortunately last Saturday the service was not good, this is something very unusual because service is Usually impeccable .
I write this review because we know chef Kiran who is always there end she must know to correct the situation.
Please don’t misunderstand me the server was good but service was extremely slow and it appears that he came to substitute or help on that area because he had tables at the terrace too, so I guess it was not his fault, he came to help .
The new set up patio is great! Good was really good, service à bit slow, but it was ok! Will go back once more
Their outdoor dining is perfect this time of year especially with COVID
Excellent as usual enjoyed the food and service will go back so pleased second time here food gets better and better and always spacious no close contact
Great place and excellent food as always!
Great service. Delicious cuisine. Very friendly atmosphere. Overall a great dining experience
This is my favorite Indian restaurant.
The wine list is very good, the food is exceptional and the comfort of the restaurant is great.
The soup flight was excellent, as always, the Vindaloo chicken was spicy and wonderful, and the lightly flavored basmati rice with bits of dried fruit was perfect. We paired the food with a glass of Adami Prosecco. Ambience was elegant and calm. One of my favorite restaurants.
Always so amazing!!!
Love this place and the charming people who work here.
Chef Kiran’s haute cuisine never fails to impress :)
We enjoyed Kiran’s - the parking & entrance was a bit difficult to figure out.
We really enjoyed our dinner. The cocktail menu is fun (we had a Mumbai Miracle - quite pricy but delicious). After our street food starter selections (samosas, papadums, pani poori), we shared vegetable biryani, garlic naan and chicken jalferezi. It was all wonderful. The dining room is beautiful and we were "entertained" by a sub-titled Indian movie playing in the background. A lovely time and an absolutely delicious meal. We will certainly be visiting again.
Always fabulous food and great service. Kiran’s is a Houston treasure
Very good tasty and service excellent and quite elegant and very open space not crowded good price for selection of food
The staff was awesome at explaining the different menu times to us all. Great wine list and at reasonable price.
Parking is an issue. The signs say restaurant patrons park free in the garage but even with validation you can’t go over 3 hours or you can’t exit without paying.
Lovely place. We ended up sitting inside since it was early and there were no other guests yet. Our server (Jacob) was friendly, helpful, and delightful! The food was excellent, only just a little on the spicier side than we would have preferred, but hey-- it's Indian food, after all!
First time to dine out since mid-March. Couldn’t have made a better choice. Kiran has installed an outside patio with distanced tables. We felt perfectly safe. The food was up to its usual high standards - well spiced, perfectly combined with a mango lassi to tone down the burn. The service was impeccable, donning with gloves and face masks, which was much appreciated.
Amazing experience and wonderful food. Definitely recommend for a date night!
Overall wonderful experience. Upscale and more on the expensive side but worth it with the food. Wine list was extensive and seemed pricy but good as well.
Always great food prepared with great care. Authentic Indian tastes brought to interesting seafood dishes among many other options. Attention to detail and great service to match.
We did both the Chef's and the Sadya Tastings. They were divine! Our initial champagne order came out a little tardy but the food erased all hindrances from out minds. Somehow authentic while at the same time paying homage to the southwest city it's housed within brilliant fusion. Favorites included: Sev Batata Poori, Foie gras, goat cheese naan, and Night in Goa. Such a high dining experience!
We had dinner at Kiran's for a 40th Bday celebration and as usual it did not disappoint. The food is always wonderful and the service was stellar. One of us is Vegetarian and a guest has to eat gluten free and so Indian is a great choice and you can't do better than Kiran's. We also appreciate the patio and that our server always had his mask on appropriately.
Best upscale and the most authentic north Indian food in United States. Chef Kiran Verma is the best Indian chef in the United States and kudos to her for bringing the authencity of Indian food.
This is a PHENOMENAL restaurant. Part of our table did entrees, part of it did restaurant week and we toured the Street Foods section of the menu with small plates and all of the food was truly sensational. I would highly recommend this restaurant. The decor is beautiful and the outside seating area is designed like an urban oasis. Do not miss out on dessert either. Top notch.
COVID-19 procedures a little lax since last visit, at least that is how I felt.
Food superb as always.
Service a little slow.
Week end parking a little problematic.
Still a very worthwhile drive for a consistent Indian fusion cuisine.
It was a great evening! Food service were excellent. Ambience was relaxing. Background music set a great tone. Highly recommended.
Best Indian cuisine in Houston. Complex layers of gentle flavors made from fresh ingredients including spices and herbs (tender fresh herb leaves instead of dried, etc). Some would consider parts of the menu to be a bit pricey but the cooking is labor intensive and worth it.
I thought the food was very average I really love authentic Indian food and this was fine. Just average. The service though was excellent.
We were celebrating my husband’s birthday with friends. We all took advantage of the Restaurant Week menu which was excellent
We have known Kiran for a long time and she continues to amaze us with her culinary prowess! A delicious presentation of rack of lamb and tandoori chilean sea bass was out of this world! Spinach paneer and coriander and onion kulcha made for a perfect feast!
so good. great food and service! will be back soon.
I have loved Kiran's food for years--before they re-opened at this location. I had not been in a long time. It doesn't disappoint. Since I was last here (maybe 2018 or 2019?), the restaurant expanded to close to double its former size. It's a bit of an open concept, but not too bad, especially during COVID, when every other table is left open. The service was nice. The house-designed cocktails are amazing. The wine list is solid. Pricing is on point for the quality and atmosphere. I had chicken vindaloo. The chef made my wife a customized seafood tikka masala. The eggplant appetizer is fabulous. If you've never had Peshwari naan, you must. I think there are only a few places in town that serve it.
The food was amazing. I wish the server was able to explain some of the dishes in more detail. Also, the restaurant was very warm. These are really small items that could use some attention but our experience was very good and we can’t wait to go back.
