Have been going to this restaurants for years. Even before it moved to nicer place on Nasa1. The food is great, not overly spicy like some Indian Restaurants. The buffet has a selection for everyone. Plenty of seating with some booths. Hot Naan is delicious. One of my favorite dishes is the Chicken Tika Marsala - chunks of chicken in... More

I have marked this establishment as average for the time that we went for Lunch. I have been here before for dinner and found it EXCELLENT! bottom line this is a very good Indian restaurant for Indian food. Lunch time in Huston can be crowded and, yes, this place was crowded. Even there was not waiting, customers were moving in,... More

We were visiting NASA and saw that TripAdvisor gave high scores to this restaurant and decided to try it. We were glad we did. We had the sampler plate for two, and the dishes were warm, savory, and tasty. You must have the whipped coffee with rice pudding for dessert.

This is an excellent restaurant in the clear lake area of Houston. close proximity for visitors to the Kemah, Seabrook area, or those coming to visit NASA. They have an amazing lunch buffet, and dinner a la carte. It is one of our favorite restaurants with great food and great service. Also served by local take out delivery services.

This is one of my two Clear Lake favorites for Indian cuisine. Lunch is served buffet style, and dinner is by table service. Dinner service is a little more formal that most places in the best Indian style. You'll find the traditional standouts of Indian-American food, chikcken tikka masala (chicken in tomato cream sauce) and saag paneer (creamed spinach with... More

This was an excellent choice for our first India cuisine dining experience, while the venue was not anything special, the buffet made up for it. We liked every one of the dishes we tried from the buffet, and the bread served at the table was excellent. Both the service and food made for a great first time dining experience

The lunch buffet is amazing!! You can eat some (or all if you so please, it is a buffet after all) of the best Indian food in your life here for less than $12. The food is always fresh because the lunch buffet is constantly busy. If you're looking to get in and out fast, I'd recommend going right when... More

Tandoori chicken was dry. So dry that i had to sip water with every bite. The people who serve naan (bread) at the table simply forgot and many tables were made to wait. And in the hurry the naans that came out were uncooked. The dessert (rice pudding and some cake) was delicious. Clean restrooms. Closest place from Galveston. Note... More

Having dined with my wife and friends at several restaurants specializing in Indian food in this area, most of which would rate three or four stars, Cuisine of India impressed me as the best of the lot, a five-star choice, and we have made several visits to it. While I can recall few of the food names, I certainly recall... More
