Since 1986, when Raja Sweets brought Indian food to the city, Houston’s Indian and Pakistani cuisine has been consistently diversifying alongside the city. Today, diners can get dishes from regions across the subcontinent, or eat Indian spices worked into new forms like tacos, pies, or southern fried chicken.
The cluster of restaurants and fast food counters that make up Houston’s historic Mahatma Gandhi District, long known as Little India, remain reliable choices, but a new crop of restaurants have popped up around the city, too — serving overflowing bowls of homestyle dal, refined high tea, and syrupy desserts worthy of gifting to friends. Be sure to check out these 21 restaurants that prove that there has never been a better time to eat South Asian food in Texas.
This list has been updated to remove London Sizzler and Chowpatty to make room for Ashiani and the newly opened Karahi Boys.
