I was in Houston to attend an Indian style family wedding and did not get a chance to venture out much, but I was able to sneak in here on an off day. It was obviously the first time for me at this restaurant. They have a wonderful, wide spaced location, airy, with a great owner and a few lousy staff. The service is slow but the food is absolutely fabulous.
I even got some kababs packed for myself on my way back to DC!....highly recommended
Favorite Dish: I will VERY strongly recommend that you try their kababs, lahori choley and naan combo.! I hadnt eaten anything of this magnitude in a while, the taste still lingers in my mouth when I think about it. Perfectly grilled kababs, fresh pipping hot naan, and spicy choley for gravy with mango lassi to boot..what else....please tell me what else does a man need??
On my next visit to Houston, I will try and have a meal more than once here.

This a great vietnamese restaurant located at the heart of the Rice Village district. It is cheap for extremely delicate, spiceful dishes. This restaurant is small and family run. Nice atmosphere. Lots of locals go there. Do not miss it!!
Favorite Dish: Everything is good! My favorite is the Flambé cubes, delicious beef cubes.

This wonderful restaurant offers haute-cuisine type of Mexican food, it is delicious and unlike any other Mexican restaurant you have been too. Everything is delicious! They have a large menu of meats and fishes. I enjoyed the goat dish (yes!) and the rabbit one. And the margaritas are probably the best in town. Try the original smokey Oaxaca one. Very professional waiters and the presentation of the food is also lovely (see picture).
Make a reservation for a Friday and Saturday night. It gets crowded!
They have valet parking at the back of the restaurant but you can park for free in the nearby streets.
Favorite Dish: Everything is good. Be adventurous and try the grass hoppers? Don't worry, they also have chicken and snapper...

The University of Houston main campus has a School of hotel and restaurant management & service. This is their restaurant. All the food and service is by the students. Excellent service and dishes. Sort of average choice of fish and meats American style, but everything was perfect! Atmosphere is a little what you expect from a hotel restaurant, a little boring and empty. But there are not many good restaurants around the University of Houston main campus, and Eric's is one of the best.
Favorite Dish: I had the most delicious tuna, cooked to perfection.

****Update 2013: this restaurant unfortunately is now closed!!****
Rouge is a recently opened restaurant in the Montrose area. As its name indicates, the decor is all in red (bordeaux). The service and food are excellent for the price. The presentations of the dishes are very original and nice, and the portions sizes very reasonable (not too big like in most American restaurants!). Can be a very romantic restaurant especially in the small room upstairs. The food is a cross between French (with a tinge of North African) and American. They change the menu regularly and experiment. Count $150 for 2 persons with wine.
Favorite Dish: We loved the lamb and the rabbit dishes!

Although this restaurant has been in Houston for decades, I only went recently and absolutely loved it! You do not know what Belgian food is? Wonderful mussels and fries, excellent creamy chicken dishes, nice steaks and stews, good fish and of course excellent fries served with mayonnaise! Note for Americans: what you call "French fries" is originally a typical Belgian specialty! They of course have a large choice of Belgian beers but also a good wine list. The waiter was very effective, professional and had lots of humor.
They are closed on Sunday.
Favorite Dish: Moules et Frites! (that's mussels and fries). I had the Congolese spicy version and it was delicious. I recommend the croquettes for appetizers (yummy fried potato puree bits). We had a nice German riesling with that.
And the desserts! Try the crêpes (see picture)!

Schlotzsky’s is one of my very favorite places to eat. It’s a sandwich shop that you can take out or eat in the shop with plenty of tables always available. It’s a bit pricier ($6-7 for a sandwich) than most other sandwich shops but definitely worth it.
It's a place where you order at the counter, then wait for your food and pick it up when they call your number. It's very casual and I'm sure you'll love the food!
Hours of operation
Mon-Sun: 10:00am-10:00pm; some Houston locations vary
Participating restaurants also include a Cinnabon inside
Favorite Dish: The highlight is the sandwiches. They make it with thick sourdough bread and very thinly sliced meat. Then they sprinkle cheese (the best is a mixture of cheddar and mozzarella) on one piece of bread and run it through an oven conveyor belt. Therefore the sandwich is warm and very tasty. The Original is their signature sandwich and comes with: “Home of The Original® Sandwich. Lean smoked ham, Genoa and cotto salamis, and melted cheddar, mozzarella, and parmesan cheeses layered with black olives, red onion, lettuce, tomato, mustard and our signature dressing on toasted Sourdough bread.” (From the website.)
Their sandwiches are quite large. I’ve never ordered a large, the mediums are quite enough when you’re at your hungriest.
Their original chips are delicious! Their pizzas are as well. The cheese and pizza is definitely worth trying, also cooked on a sourdough. The bbq chicken looks just as good but it’s hard not to get my favorite sandwich, the turkey and cheese.

This restaurant on weisthiemer road is a joint for Mexican food. The crowd is noisy at times (cant blame - Its the weisthiemer after all). Magarritas are yummy. Unlike the chain restaurants, the food is authentic mexican.
Favorite Dish: Chicken fajita with frozen Magaritas - Absolute Delight

warm welcome, a very american crowd, the resto is much more american in ambience but the food is definitely tex mex
Favorite Dish: Large portions so unless you are very hungry dont order combinations or specials.
i had just one cheese enchilada and it cames with mountains of nachos.. i could hardly finish it ..
Taste is just ordinary so you come here for lunch not for a gourmet experience

I’ve been to Landry’s three times now, for three consecutive Thanksgiving meals. The first two times were EXTREMELY pleasing and the thought of it makes me wish it were November already. (Note: The Thanksgiving of 2011 left a bit to be desired but 2 out of 3 ain’t bad.) The seafood is amazing: especially the salmon and tilapia. The waiters and waitresses are dressed nicely in white button down shirts with black ties, and prices are higher than you would normally pay. Needless to say, we don’t come here with big parties or every day use. But it’s nice every now and then to pay/eat above normal seafood.
*If you find yourself in Houston (or The Woodlands) next Thanksgiving you may want to try their Traditional buffet for a pre fix $30 or something like that. But the food is AMAZING with traditional fixings and THEN a whole other section of seafood. The wine list is also nice, and all drinks I’ve ordered there have come out very nice. Make sure you make reservations, though! It can be up to a 2 hour waiting line…
On a beautiful day they have an outdoor seating area that has a beautiful view of the manmade lake that surrounds most of The Woodlands.
