    We went to Kirans for my wedding anniversary . We reserved at the last minute and the only option available was to sit in the patio. The guy who waited on us was really good. The coxktail options were unique and i tried the ginger and jalapeno tequila and old wives tale ( whiskey with fig, cardamom and burnt rosemary. We went with the vegetarian options for appetizer and meal and the food was really good. Worth a visit and will reserve it for special occasions next time i visit Houston

    Delightful experience!! The various spices are taste amazing and are discernable in dishes. The Punjabi Thali offered a sampling of 4 different tastes and was amazaing. If you have not had an opportunity to eat Indian food, Kiran's will not disappoint. Our server was knowledgeable of flavors and spice notes to ensure our dining was on point!

    So enjoyed our 1st visit to Kiran's. Atmosphere was pretty and food was amazing. Our waiter was very helpful and knowledgeable. We were very excited when Chef Kiran come out into the restaurant to chat with patrons and we got to meet her. She was so sweet and very welcoming. Maybe a little over priced but it was worth it. Will definitely be going back.

    It was my time trying out the full menu for my wife’s birthday. First time was Valentine’s Day, and they had a much shortened menu, sadly. But tonight, we requested spicy on all our dishes and the chefs did well. The foot was flavorful, and had the right amount of spices for Indian palettes. Although on the pricier side for Indian food, it’s money well spent for a special occasion. Staff was also great and friendly.

    Excellents cocktails avec des compositions intéressantes tintées de saveurs indiennes. Bons plats, et à en juger par le nombre de clients d’origine indienne, je supposer authentique. Léger bémol sur la duree d’attente du service, sans doute lié au nombre de clients important ce soir.

    Our drinks took 30 minutes and the food took a very long time. Our glasses were empty for ages before I located a water pitcher and refilled them ourselves. For the price, I expected attentive service and we were ignored for most of the night. Our meal took 3 hours, which was entirely too long.

    The food we ordered was delicious. But we had to wait way too much until the food arrived, then to get a glass of wine served, and by the time the order of naan arrived we had already finished eating and we sent it back. The server apologized repeatedly and told us the kitchen was flooded with orders, unusual for a weekday night. Overall, it is a very good restaurant but the waiting killed the mood.

    We normally enjoy Kiran’s from the food to the busy atmosphere. We dined at 6:45 on May 23 and had a horrible experience. The service was woeful and practically non-existent with only one server for a large area. It took 20 minutes to get ice for our sparkling water — one of our party wasn’t even provided a glass! The food came out rushed and the dhal makhni was watery unlike the usual times when it’s thick and creamy. The naan bread arrived at the very end of the meal. We asked for the bill and toothpick (waiter mumbled they ran out and walked away after handing us the bill). We waited to pay and finally gave up and went to the hostess to pay. Hostess called the waiter over to process the payment and he tells us he can’t split the bill. I just glared at him and he then turned around and split the bill. We made it very clear we were unhappy with the experience. The hostess replied: It’s very busy. No apology at all. I found that to be quite strange as I do normally enjoy the restaurant and have had superb servers.

    What an experience! The ambience, aromas, and of course the food was outstanding. Parking was a little dicey, but the valets were great. I've had Indian food many times, but this was unique. Their cocktail and wine selection was also great. It's definitely pricey, but worth it. I can't wait to go back.
