“Fascinating and complex, the Mangalorean was the best Indian dish I had tried in ages,” writes Houston Chronicle restaurant critic Alison Cook.

I seldom order shrimp in an Indian restaurant. My experience is that they can break your heart. But the shellfish in chef-owner Sheel Joshi’s southern-style curry — one of the outliers on this mostly Northern Indian menu — had been meticulously cooked, so that they emerged big and pearly. The pale reddish sea they swam in was softened with coconut milk, rounded out with cardamom, cinnamon and clove. Then came the crucial sharpening: the snap, crackle and pop of those mustard seeds, chile pods and earthy curry leaves.

Houston CityBook’s April 2018 issue features an article on Houston’s Indian food scene, with a nice mention of Surya India:

Meanwhile, new-ish Heights-area hideaway Surya India is earning good word-of-mouth with its trendy, industrial space and authentic eats. Chef-owner Sheel Joshi brought the revamped version of his restaurant to Houston after a successful 10-year run in Beverly Hills. “The cost of doing business in L.A. was getting to be too expensive,” he says.

While many chefs, near and far, are adopting the Indian-fusion trend, Joshi elects to embrace tradition. “Indian food is so complex. It ranges from region to region and is impossible to get right all under one roof,” he says. His approach to Surya’s primarily North Indian menu? “Dishes are made to their merit. I do not believe in adjusting the spice level because it does an injustice to the cuisine.” But, he adds, there are safe bets for people wary of too much spice, like Tandoori chicken and chicken korma.

Thanks, Houston CityBook!

From “Houston’s Best Restaurants (and Ramen) for December: New Spots Worth Eating at Right Now” :

Contemporary Indian cuisine hits the Rice-Military district courtesy Los Angeles-based restaurant Surya India. After closing his Los Angeles restaurant in 2009, chef-owner Sheel Joshi revived his award-winning concept in Houston seven years later on Durham Drive, showcasing the broad influence of his French-Indian heritage.

Start your meal with the sag paneer or potato and chick pea samosas. Then dive into flavor-filled entrees such as tandoor lamp chops, chicken tikka kebabs, Indo-China chili chicken, or kadhi pakora — an off-the-menu signature.

Thanks, Papercity!
