Bringing India to Town C – Last week, I drove into Houston for business from Corpus Christi. I spent a couple of hours in a meeting and we adjourned for lunch. One of my friends, whom I worked with, wanted to take me out and introduce me to his town. He wanted to take me to a "new" Indian restaurant that opened in the local Town Center. Being from Dallas and have eaten my fair share of Indian food, I agreed.
As we reached the restaurant, I was ready to give my friend either a thumbs up or a good lashing for this "experiment" he was putting me through. We walked in and the place was a bit empty. We were seated at a booth and told the buffet was open. We started with the buffet and piled it on. I was a bit skeptical on the food as I poured (since it didn't look traditional - which is surprising for me to say since I'm Caucasian), but I went ahead and tried. I was amazed at how it tasted. The food was well cooked, and had a different but satisfying taste. My favorite was the chicken tikka masala. When you try it, you have to savor it in your mouth and not rush to eat it.
Overall, I would recommend this restaurant to anyone. The next time I come through Houston, I will definitely stop by (or atleast grab a takeout)!!
Sugarland's much needed but disappointing Indian Restaurant – My husband and I were really excited to finally find an Indian restaurant in Town Square. So off we went to try it out at its new location!! We were greeted by the host who turned out to be pretty much the only waiter/cashier/manager. The food was unnecessarily colored with red food color, the chicken tandoori was so dry that my chicken loving daughter could not finish one piece. The naan rotis were heavy and doughy. The curry tasted like it was microwaved from the lunch's buffet. The spinach dish that we all love looked brown and tasted overcooked. It was truly a total waste of our money and appetite.
We have had eaten at the other location, while overpriced, the food was much better. I think the owner is cutting corners to make up for the very expensive new lease by compromising in quality big time. Huge mistake! I would not suggest anyone to even try it as it will give a bad name to all Indian food.
