Enjoy These Three Fantastic Indian Restaurants in Houston

Did you know that Indian food is growing in popularity in the United States? The cuisine makes up less than two percent of America’s specialty food restaurants, but it’s had the fastest growth of all these establishments. Do you enjoy this delicious, spicy cuisine? You should check out these fantastic Indian restaurants in Houston near the Marquette at Piney Point Apartments.

The Bombay Pizza Company

Owners Sonali and Viral Patel opened the Bombay Pizza Company in December 2009. The restaurant serves delicious Italian dishes with delicious Indian spices.

The restaurant makes some of the best pizzas in the Houston area. But, diners will also enjoy their burger sliders, creamy soups, and crisp salads. They also prepare yummy desserts and a selection of imported, all-natural sodas.

Bombay Pizza has a delightful, comfortable atmosphere. The eatery uses Thomas Edison-era light bulbs to make their sunshine yellow walls glow. Food Network’s Mo Rocca said the diner’s Gateway of India pizza, made with mint-cilantro chutney and tandoori chicken, is the best thing he’s ever eaten.

Bombay Pizza also cooks classic street foods like Vada Pav (a masala potato burger) and Kati rolls.


Another fantastic Indian restaurant that you must visit is Houston’s Pondicheri. Chef and co-owner Anita opened the upscale eatery in 2011. Her restaurant serves deeply personal recipes that showcase Indian food in a different light. She combines the Indian cuisine’s complex flavors with Ayurvedic wisdom. Anita also uses traditional spices and fresh ingredients.

The restaurant has an upscale casual atmosphere. You can stop by the eatery for a hearty all-day breakfast, lunch, or dinner. Try their fermented dosa crepes made with red millet, rice, or lentils. You can also order their chicken tuk-tuk thali from their non-traditional authentic platters.

They also serve a selection of drinks, such as mango lassi, masala chai, and Assam tea.

Aga’s Restaurant and Catering

This popular banquet hall is a Houston area staple. Aga’s Restaurant and Catering has served authentic Indian and Pakistani cuisine to the area’s residents since 1987. 

The eatery has a casual, laid-back atmosphere. It only prepares its recipes using Zabiha Halal meats. They serve tasty vegetarian and non-vegetarian dishes, biryani and rice, curried meats and Peshawari chicken karahi, and Tandoori bread.
