WELCOME TO SURYA

Upscale Indian Dining in Houston

I invite you to share in my culinary journey.

I began as a child of Indo-European background, learning the fundamentals of cooking from my mother. As an adult, I expanded my culinary training in the Far East, Europe, and the US, and have cooked Italian, French, and Indian food in restaurants for nearly 25 years. In Los Angeles, I owned and operated Surya for over a decade and then launched Holy Cow, a casual concept for eaters on the go. Now, Surya of Houston is my dream fulfilled.

At Surya, we present traditional North Indian food with respect to heritage: no gimmicks, chili meters, or buffets. We also appreciate the adventurism of today’s palate and borrow dishes from the South of India. For personal inspiration, I connect with my mother’s skill in the kitchen and my father’s integrity in business. Surya is a gift to their memory.

ABOUT US

Welcome to Surya

Surya offers an intimate and upscale dining experience. Our policies are in place to ensure that all of our guests receive the most hospitable service that we can provide.

Reservations are required to ensure a table.

  • To ensure social distancing, we cannot accommodate parties larger than six.
  • Partial groups will not be seated, all guest have to be present.
  • For food safety reasons, we do not allow outside food or drinks brought into the restaurant. This includes (but is not limited to) wine, birthday cake, and baby/toddler food.
  • There are no kids’ menus available. There are no slings, high chairs, or booster seats, and no space for strollers. We can only accommodate adult guests; no minors.
  • Our philosophy is that food should be cooked to its merit, so our dishes cannot be modified in terms of spice levels.
  • To encourage pleasant conversation over a great meal, we ask our guests to silence and put away cell phones, tablets, and other digital devices.
  • We consider tank tops, flip flops, and workout attire too casual for our restaurant.
WHAT CRITICS SAY

Reviews

"[T]his Heights gem offers signature dishes like chicken korma, lamb saag and lentils spiced with ginger. The forward-thinking Joshi puts as much effort into sides as his mains."
"This is the kind of restaurant I’ll be likely to put on my personal rotation."
