“Unexpected Standard of Asian Food”
Reviewed 30 January 2014

Living in Leicester the undisputed capital for Asian gourmet food in the UK ,we have very high standards of expectation when dining Asian. We were visiting family and friends in Houston over New Year and we were taken to Narin's by an Indian friend and so I should have guessed it would be top drawer for Asian cuisine. We were not disappointed. Great food,great taste and super service topped off with a free ice cream dessert as a welcome first visit gesture made for a great dining experience. Well done Narins you deserve another visit when we return to Houston in 2015.

“Dinner was great”
Reviewed 19 January 2014

We have been to Narin's many times for buffet and wine dinners and always find it to be excellent but had not been there for a while for dinner. We were very pleased.

We had the lamb samosas for the first time and they were huge and delicious. Be sure to use the sauces because it enhances the flavor.

Lamb Saagwala was very good with excellent spinach. The chicken biryani was good, as was the okra.

Don't miss the garlic naan and the mango lassies, either.

Service was very attentive and the restaurant was busy, but the noise level was very low, allowing for normal conversations.

“Creamy!!!”
Reviewed 30 December 2013

Bombay Brasserie touts to be an upscale Indian restaurant. Indeed the service is up to par of fine Indian, however, the food quality suffers from it. We went for dinner and had ordered a variety of vegetarian and poultry/ meat entries and appetizers. What stood out from norm was their Chicken Tandoori and Palak Paneer. The Chicken Tikka Masala was lacking the balance of spices and cream, and was way on the creamy side. The lamb curry was lacking taste, and was bland! The Malai Kofta, Navrattan Korma were also average. For appetizers, Aloo Tikki with Chana was good, and you can't really mess up Pakoras. Gulab Jamoon and the rice pudding for dessert made it all end well.

“Wonderful Service”
Reviewed 19 August 2013

The wait staff are very attentive and the food quality is top notch. The Sag Paneer is excellent and their rice is wonderful. Rogan Josh is also an excellent choice.

“Visit to Narin's Bombay Brasserie”
Reviewed 11 August 2013

Last weekend when I was in Houston I visited Narin's Bombay Brasserie. Since I was there with my parents over lunch, we decided on the lunch buffet. I would say that the preparations were very good, especially the tandoori chicken. Prior to ordering the buffet, I noticed the tandoori scallops on the menu and we also ordered this dish. I would not recommend this dish. It was not made in a tandoori oven and the scallops were prepared poorly. However, if you stick to the traditional North Indian cuisine, it was indeed very good and well worth a visit.
