Kiran’s is considered by many to be Houston’s best Indian restaurant and the food is incredible. The dishes all have a great blend of Indian spices that are amazing. They have usual fare like an upscale version of Chicken Tikka Masala, a tomato based curry, and they even have Texas and seafood items that looked really good.
Kiran’s is located in the new building off upper Kirby and is very accessible with great parking and offer valet parking as well. I came on a weekday shortly after they opened for an early dinner and it was not too busy. The restaurant is quite big with plenty of tables that can accommodate a chair. If decor is your thing then Kiran’s does an excellent job. Everything is aesthetically pleasing and gives you a nice fine dining atmosphere.
The food is superb and you will feel really stuff when you finish, trust me it will be worth it. To start I ordered two appetizers that were both Indian dishes, Delhi chaat, and samosas. To people unfamiliar with Indian these items are similar to a crispy roll but much tastier and have a nice blend of spices. Delhi chaat was superb and I loved that the dish came with a nice yogurt sauce and had a nice spicy tint that wasn’t too spicy. The samosas I ordered came with potatoes and nuts and this was top notched with nicely spiced potatoes.
Now for my entree, I ordered the Chicken Vindaloo and this is known to be universally spicy. This comes with potatoes in a creamy and spicy sauce. Kiran’s version is superb and the vindaloo is quite spicy, but not unbearably spicy. The meat was high quality and was quite filling. Also, this dish goes well with garlic naan, an Indian bread that looks much like a flatbread. Lastly, for those that are vegan, they have a nice selection that is quite excellent.
The restaurant is remarkably accessible and the staff was very helpful and friendly. The dining area had a nice selection of tables and the tables were not too close, which was a plus. I believe the bathrooms are wheelchair accessible since the building is quite new.
Overall, Kiran’s offers top notched food that is truly Houston’s best restaurant and has high marks for accessibility. The restaurant is quite pricey, but the fine dining experience is well worth the price.
