Kiran's Ratings and Reviews
We had a wonderful meal, the waiter was very helpful with recommendations. We decided to stay with the traditional Indian cuisine and it did not disappoint. The nice thing about the restaurant is that there are options besides Indian food if you are with a group with different food tastes. Lots of vegetarian and non vegetarian options.
He ido varias ocasiones desde que estaban en el otro local, en esta oportunidad la cocina fuen muy lenta y el arroz con cordero que ordene pareciera que me dieron cordero con otra preparación ya que estaba muy picoso y nunca me lo habian servido así.
Me parece que es una lastima que lo descuiden, solía ser mi favorito de comida Hindú.
Overall, we have been to Kiran’s A number of times. The old restaurant was better quality, the service was better and we enjoyed the ambiance much better. The new restaurant is larger, but without the warm feeling. The feeling I got was bigger was supposed to be better, but I think she missed the mark.
It was my first time dining at the restaurant and i am professional chef too the service was poor i mean the waiters made to seat and we were waiting for more than half n hour to order drinks with all the waiters starring at us but rather than that it was good experience good food good vibes
Initial impression on visiting the new location for the first time is that I miss the British Colonial decor of the previous site. The menu is extensive and a must if you want to include vegetarian options on the menu for someone in your party. Food seems to have swayed somewhat into more "Fusion" and less "Indian" for a traditionalist, but the quality is excellent and preparation is top notch. Will go again, but not when craving Indian.
We completely enjoyed Kiran's. Most of the people with me had not had Indian - or very little exposure to it . I don't know everything about it, but I know I like it and had heard great reviews about Kiran's. It did not disappoint and every one, even the skeptical ones, enjoyed it thoroughly.
Great food! We attended the pre-fixe men for Diwali. All vegetarian (disclaimer...we are not vegetarian) menu and it was FANTASTIC. Party of 6 and we all thoroughly enjoyed the authentic and exotic flavors of India. Our service was impeccable and of course Chef Kiran and her husband were present and greeting guests as usual. Nice host/hostesses, great drinks at the bar. An overall amazing experience as usual. One of our local favorites.
Quickly becoming my fav restaurant in Houston. I just love this place. Don’t go if you’re in a hurry. They allow you to dine a leisurely pace which can be jarring compared to the typical American dining experience. It’s lovely if you can allow yourself to have a slow paced and amazing dinner. The food is excellent and there are so many options. The service is impeccable and the servers are very well trained to explain every aspect of the menu.
I visited Kiran's for a Saturday afternoon tea, which was a surprise for my husband who loves tea. We did the gluten free menu. Food was good, with the portobello appetizer and scone my favorites. There were three courses and three different teas. We left extremely full, so don't eat lunch beforehand!
Service left something to be desired. We had about 4 different people waiting on us and they didn't communicate with each other, which resulted in confusion and the wrong things being brought out to us.
Overall, I thought this was a nice experience and different than a traditional meal out.
Very slow service and felt unwelcome. The first visit was the opposite, service was prompt and friendly, but during the last visit the staff ignored customers and were kept busy by the owner,
moving chairs and keeping guests with no staff service. I doubt that I’d recommend this restaurant to my friends.
The food choices ranged from traditional Indian dishes to more western / European with an Indian/cajun twist. All choices were great or better. Outstanding service and decor. Bar decor is especially lovely. Has free valet parking around the corner (off Richmond).
Nice atmosphere, friendly staff, tasty food. Breads are delicious. Crab cake and crabbsamosa both great. Liked the black lentils and biryani. Service was polite but inattentive. Unnecessarily seated at an uncomfortable table crammed against a service station. Had a hard time getting waiter's attention. Had to ask for water, a second cocktail, etc. might have just been an off night for service.
Everything about Kiran's is always impeccable! We brought some foodie friends from Las Vegas who think that no ones service levels in Houston have lived up to Vegas standards...until Kiran's. And the food is always amazing. Wine selection is also great. Definitely one of my favorite restaurants in Houston.
This used to be my favorite Indian restaurant with an excellant variety of wines. The last 2 times I visited ( within the last 2 months), the food has been inconsistent and disappointing. Both times I had to send back our food. Very sad for a great chef!
Excellent menu options. We ordered family style to share dishes and all of the vegetarian foods were cooked perfectly. Personally would've preferred the lamb and venison to be less cooked and more tender/rare. But overall everything was excellent. Especially recommend the stuffed naan and okra.
Food had good flavors and there was good mix of spices in every dish making it very different kind of Indian food. I think I like Indica more when it comes to fusion Indian food and use of spices. I was not happy with the wait time too as I was with my 6 months old n could not wait longer
