“Because I love Indian food, but am not overly familiar with it, I prefer buffets, where I can view, smell, and then sample a small portion of food at a time.”
“order a mango yogurt drink also, it's very yummy.”
“If you want to be overcharged $13.50 just for one person and receive bad service and even worst food then this is your spot.”
“excellent and curteous service.”
“The Buffet is affordable also.”

horrible. never go to this restaurant they took hours to send a waiter to the table. I was sitting there for 30 mins. And the food is not that great too.
Management has changed. Please come and enjoy our new and improved look and food.
Great Indian Food, Great Indian Soap Operas.
I actually had not been here for a while. A group of mine used to come here for a work lunch every so often before we moved offices. For some reason we were craving Indian food today. I was surpised to find that the buffet was still open at 2:30pm today AND that the restaurant has received a total makeover. It looks much nicer inside than it used to, with three or four flat screen televisions playing different types of Indian soap operas or music videos.
The food has actually improved since I remembered it, and there is a bigger variety of dishes. Furthermore, the restaurant is now serving 100% Halal meat and is open 7 days a week now. Hopefully they'll do better under new management and chef.
best indian food. The food is excellent! I couldn't ask for anything better! My family and I love to go here whenever we are in this area. The buffet is our menu option of choice. Why? You can sample a fair amount of the dishes and they are all asbolutely delicious! It has goat, chicken,vegetables, seafood, and choices of desserts too. i love it!
"Cockroach in your dish".
I was shocked to see how the management reacted when they found Cockroach in my food ( vegetable biryani).
The food was good,but who wants to eat food with cockroach. People should eat at this place only the manager is ready to offer $5000 cash + health expenses if the customer gets cockroach or other bugs in his plate. This is the only deterrent for the reckless quality in kitchen.
I love the meat dishes on the buffet.
Whenever my husband and I go to Houston, we always eat here atleast once.
The buffet selection is a little small.
But they have the best chicken curry dish I have ever eaten at an Indian buffet. Everything else is pretty good.
The dessert selections are very limited.
Bug...enough said. I have been to Pavani about 3 times for the lunch buffet, and the first two times were okay. The food was spicy which I liked. The last time, the service was poor, our glasses smelled like wet dog, and when they brought us out one of those potato pancake things, a small r#ach crawled right out of it. I did not want to make a super big deal about it because the place was packed, and I did not want to ruin everyones lunch. When I told the waiter about it he just asked if we would like another one, like it was no big deal. Gross!!!
Best Indian Buffet in Houston. Everything here is well made and the quality is always consistently good. We travel 7 hours to go have Indian food as there is no Indian restaurant with as fantastic a buffet in the Rio Grande Valley area. My favorites are the chicken tikka, butter chicken, dosai, saag paneer, kheer, and naan. This is the only Indian restaurant we go to whenever we are in Houston.
yum. Love the butter chicken! Always good service --nice people too, I am gradually getting to know more about indian cusine. Trying different things. The Buffet is affordable also.
Horrible taste and bad service!!!!. I read some of the other reviews and decided to give it a try. When I was walking in the host was outside smoking a cigarette and was not happy to see me. I had to seat myself and was finally offered a beverage after about 3 minutes. The food is the worst Indian food I have ever tasted. The only thing that was halfway decent was the butter chicken. Even that tasted watered down and not at all what I expected for Indian food. If you want to be overcharged $13.50 just for one person and receive bad service and even worst food then this is your spot. What a waste of time and money.
