    Our dinner and food experience at Kiran's was outstanding as its always been. The ambiance is always perfect. However, this occasion there appeared to be a large wedding which caused some serious delays most noticeably within the kitchen. Again, everything about Kiran's is wonderful and we will be back so it could have been just an off-night due to a large event.

    I’ve never written a bad review but our experience was terrible last night. Our first time there & had called & spoken to the hostess the day before our reservation to ensure we would be seated in the correct dining room. We waited 45 minutes from our reservation time to be seated and waited 40 minutes in the bar before we were served drinks. Once seated, we again waited way too long to be served anything. Our reservation was at 6:45, seated about 7:35 and food was served at 8:45. Food was good but definitely not what I expected given all of the wonderful things I’ve heard over many years. Very disappointed.

    My wife and I celebrated our 21st anniversary at beautiful Kiran’s at the suggestion of their accomplished hostess Shannon. We received great seating and booked reservation easily on Open Table. Eugene offered excellent guidance with our menu considerations and provided impeccable service. Our son was already a fan of Kiran’s from previous experience and enjoyed his favorite vegetarian selections. The Sea Bass and Butter Chicken were beautifully presented and delicious. Shannon visited throughout our visit to make us welcome and assure our satisfaction. This was wonderful but Eugene provided enthusiastic and gracious care, finishing with a signature desert selection. Perfect ending to a wonderful evening. Thanks for everything Kiran’s, Shannon and Eugene. We will be back!

    Kirans is an upscale Indian restaurant in the heart of Houston with a wide palette of India delicacies served in authentic taste. It is costlier than restaurants of similar standards. The staff at Kirans is extremely courteous and cordial and a shout out to a wonderful gentleman Mr. Eugene who was very polite, helpful and nice with his service. I would definitely visit there again.

    We went the Sunday of a holiday weekend. The kitchen could not keep up with the volume of the full house. We had to ask for our salad because it did not arrive with the appetizers. It took an hour to be severed the entree. Despite this, the food was pleasant so we will try again on a “normal” night.

    OMG this is one of the top Indian restaurants I have eaten at. The food was truly authentic and delicious. Service was excellent and relaxed. Not a place to quickly get in and out of... but one to enjoy a truly fine dining experience. Looking forward to coming back and experiencing more diner options

    Went here for tea time, ambiance was nice, chai tea was delicious. It would have been nice to get an actual cucumber sandwich and actual small bites. Their main course seem to be “de-constructed” and they were basically finger food. Food quality and service was very good, teas were very good, desserts were very good. Overall a good experience and would go back.

    Kiran’s has always been one of my favorite Houston restaurants, but I was left disappointed after this last visit. Though a standard dining room table was requested on Open Table, Carli, the hostess seated us in the lounge. It left me wondering, what was it about my appearance or presentation that led her to size me up for a lesser dining location at a time whereby 90% availability was open. It was offensive and inconvenient having a $300 dining meal/ experience on a small bistro table. I wouldn’t recommend the bison short ribs. It was chewy, tough and with tissue hard to cut through. Quite gross! Our server was gracious and attentive, which is the only reason we didn’t request to be moved. But we should never have been seated there from the start. Particularly, with my OpenTable status showing VIP as we are regulars on the dining out scene.
