Best Indian Food and Staff

This restaurant never fails to satisfy. The staff is always helpful in recommending dishes, identifying ingredients and heat levels, and otherwise assisting people not familiar with the cuisine. The patronage is mostly Indian, which I take as a good sign. The tikka masala is the best I've had in Houston, the lamb vindaloo, heated to your preference, tender and deeply flavored. The crispy chili mogo (fried yucca bits seasoned with chile) is our favorite appetizer. The wine list is reasonable and they offer Guinness and Boddington's on tap. Last week, we had cold bottled King Fisher beer in frozen glasses. Such a great compliment to the hot food we ordered. Order the yogurt/cucumber side called Raita also to cut the heat. Sorry if this is elementary to some of you, but for those of you who have not yet tried Indian food, this is your place. There is no question too silly here. Let them serve you. They do it graciously and deliciously. I give it maximum stars.

  1. Shri Balaji Bhavan would be my pick. I've had just a few of their lunch specials, but Bruce has plenty of coverage on what's excellent there on his blog and eG. Can strongly recommend the dahi puri.

    Check out the Bansuri Indian food truck too.

    1. I don't know why the restaurant name isn't here, but the post is about London Sizzler Restaurant.

      1. I ate there a couple of weeks ago and was knocked out by the goat curry. The tomato-based sauce was silky with just a hint of cinnamon. I just wish it had a separate bowl for me to pick out the bones.

        1. You should try to get there before 7pm and have one of their STRONG cocktails for happy hour. I also cannot resist whatever the special of the day happens to be. It is often goat. Tender, succulent goat. Love this place.

            Good grief, the name of the place just reappeared below my post. Anyway, I agree!

              I think London Sizzler is a stellar place as well. Great variety of dishes, they have a bar, and yes the service is pretty good. Also a great place for folks new to Indian/Pakistani food.
