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. But 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.

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.
  • To ensure social distancing, we cannot accommodate parties larger than six.
  • 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 only accommodate guests over the age of eight.
  • Our philosophy is that food should be cooked to its merit, so our dishes cannot be modified in terms of spice levels.

  • We consider tank tops, flip flops, and workout attire too casual for our restaurant.
