I recently visited the Indian restaurant Korma Sutra in downtown Houston, TX as the wonderful smells enticed me in. The experience was not altogether enjoyable and I have dined at plenty of Indian restaurants throughout the country. First the complimentary papadom was burnt. Not charred; but did have plenty of black areas. After perusing the menu I had to signal the young waiter to come over as he seemed more intent on looking out the door than on the service. The lentil soup was delicious and was the hi-lite of the meal. After waiting a considerable time for the main course (approx 25 mins) a member of the kitchen staff rushed out and placed the shrimp curry dinner I had ordered on my table. The place at the time was not at all busy - maybe 3 occupied tables. Going by the expensive price of the entree I had expected somewhat more. What was on the plate was a helping of boiled carrots, a small heap of basmati rice, and a modest serving of the curry. Meal was severely overpriced. The least enjoyable dining experience I had during my 5 day stay in Houston. As I was leaving the restaurant I noticed a sign at the entrance stating that shorts, T-shirts, and/or running shoes weren't allowed. I wished I had been wearing at least one of the above so I would have been restricted entry and I could have chosen a different restaurant.
