I’ve eaten here many times over the last many years. The Buffet is superb.Most of the dinner meals have been great however the last visit the lamb was rough/tough and not as usual. Very rare that I get a bad or less than perfect… ||| We have been enjoying this special restaurant for over twenty years! The quality of both the excellent food and the friendly service has always been consistent. We have tried many other Indian restaurants in Houston and India’s is definitely our favorite!
