We've always eaten the buffet, which is vey good. The strip mall in which it is located is not very attractive (mainly empty stores), but this restaurant is well worthy it. In addition to standard items (e.g. Chicken tikka masala, pulao rice, etc.), they usually have different items as well, like goat curry and broccoli aloo. Overall, they are recommended!

Under new management and back to the Gourmet India of old. When Ajih sold the restaurant a few years back it really went downhill. Had lunch their today and back to the quality of old. Great job

Whatever is your favorite Indian food, the place to come is here. The samosas are delicious, butter (masala) chicken you will want to lick the plate and palak paneer will not disappoint. I had a party and order several pans to go and it was a real hit, can't really speak of the restaurant itself because I haven't dined in...yet!

I have know this restaurant since 1997. The food is good and plenty. Would recommend the buffet as well as their menu. I like their Chikken Tikka.

While most Indian restaurants have good chicken curry, finding good goat curry can be a challenge. This restaurant serves Goat Curry at its best. Pieces are properly cut and I believe they use fresh ingredients and spices that produce good taste with great aroma. We had other dishes here and they were all good. A must try.

For the past 20 years or so, I have eaten the lunch buffet at Gourmet India. The food is consistently excellent. They have the best saag paneer in Houston; it's creamy and mild and studded with big cubes of paneer. Check out the pakoras and mango mousse The service is attentive, and the price is right - $9.95 on Monday... More

I live near this place, When I first saw the exterior and surrounding strip center, I had serious doubts as to its quality. HOWEVER, once inside, I was greeted with opulent decor, genuinely friendly wait staff, and ridiculously flavorful food. Absolutely the best kept secret in west houston.

We have been seeing the board of gourmet India but we never had chance to visit this. I prefer to go for À la carte menu rather than buffet and we hit this time & we hit it right.

Stopped in for the lunch buffet. They had signs on the table that the buffet only applied for Monday and Tuesday (not sure what happens the rest of the week). The Naan was very good. Lots of vegetable dishes....none too spicy. The tandoor chicken was dry (not impressed). Service was pleasant.

Chicken tikka appetizer very good. Chicken jalfrezi very good. Good portions. Attentive service. Comfortable surroundings. This was the second time i'd been there and always half full so other people think the same as me. Give this place a go.
