"I had heard about Aga's restaurant on the radio like a 1000 times but got a chance to visit it only now. The radio ad does NOT do enough justice to this place - it has a posh feeling to it at very reasonable prices and great service.

The channa masala came with an egg, which came on a separate plate on request. A salad is complimentary . The naan and paneer all came hot and we didnt have to wait very long. All were delicious. The spice was right, food warm all tasted fresh, so am I going back- thats a definite yes." - Aruna K. on Yelp

2. Kathmandu Curry

(5711 Hillcroft Ave. Ste A-6 Houston, TX 77036)

"This restaurant was recommended by a friend and it was every bit fantastic! We ordered chicken & vegetarian momo's and a chicken thali. The food was made home style in a restaurant setting.

This is a hidden gem in hill Croft Houston if you're craving for some real authentic Nepalese comfort food. Also, the owner ensured to take the necessary precautions for COVID and was courteous. Please visit and support if your haven't already. Five stars" - Neha S. on Yelp

"OMG THIS WAS SOOO GOOD! I came upon this place I believe on tiktok! The pictures of the sandwiches was just mouth watering. Their food truck is in front of Empire Cafe. There's parking, but VERY LIMITED. There's no outside seating or shade at all during our hot summer days, so I would suggest eating in your car! The wait to order and waiting for the food can be a hot minute.

It's a drive, but I think it's so worth it. How delicious the food is, it's very worth the drive! Also, on here it says that they're TEMP CLOSED, but if you check their IG they're open every other days except Monday & Tuesday. I will definitely be back!" - Lily N. on Yelp

5. Halal Taqueria

(5827 North Sam Houston Parkway East Humble, TX 77396)

"Legit halal tacos!! Good stuff pluss they have fried chicken! The breakfast tacos are awesome." - Yahya B. on Yelp

Surely, there's a lot of options, but in the meantime, these five are simply the best. So, let's have some shawarma, then?
