Review of Indika: Indian Restaurant in Houston, Texas

The restaurant is situated at 516 Westheimer in the busy Montrose area and near downtown. The restaurant hours of operations are from Tuesday to Saturday from 11:30 to 2:30 P.M for lunch and 6:00 P.M to 10:00, Happy Hour is served from 5:00 P.M to 7:00 P.M Tuesday through Thursday, and Brunch on Sundays is from 11:00 A.M to 3:00 P.M. The Montrose area is the heart of the melting pot which Houston is, you can find anyone here from the alternative person to the manager in a business suit.

The restaurant itself is very modern with its simple architecture and yellow and pink colors surrounding it, and even there food is somewhat colorful and very tasty. The prices are moderately high, even if most Indian restaurants have medium to high prices unless they offer a lunch buffet and even here the lunch prices are more reasonable. For appetizers they have Tandoori Quail stuffed with pine nuts for $9.00, or baked eggplant with Paneer, with Chaat Sauces for $8.00 and roasted Bone Marrow, Millet Roti, green mango chutney for $10.00. And for the soup choices you can order red pumpkin and carrot soup with spiced lentil fritters for $9.00 or a hearty Mulligatawny with shrimp, scallops and mussels for $10.00.

For entrées one of their strong dishes is slow-cooked spiced Lamb Shank with onions, mushroom, and tomato Masala, mustard potatoes for $26.00, or you can have the Tandoori pomfret which has white beans curried, baby arugula and pomegranate salad for $23.00, the Roasted Portabella layered with spinach, butternut squash, goat cheese, and Garbanzo curry for $ 19.00 or you can have a vegetarian platter for $20.00.

You can accompany your dinner with either one of their wines from France, Italy, California and New Zealand, or a cocktail such as the Jaipur for $8.00 which is Campari, Litchi, Tito’s and sweet and sour, or their Anarkali which is Pomegranate juice, Ginger, Tito’s, and Lime for $9.00 to name a few.
