OK, we only started going to Pavani because it offers the only Indian dinner buffet within about a zillion miles of where we live in West U, and at first, a year or so ago, we only liked it OK. It was good, sure, but not like, seriously, unbelievably great.\r
Now? It's seriously, unbelievably great. Best authentic South Indian cuisine I have had anywhere: Houston, LA, Manhattan - anywhere.\r
PLUS, they are so sweet to my kids and the service is so... charming and kind and genuine. We feel so ""at home"" here, it's really rare and heartwarming, especially for a huge, bustling, cranky city like Houston.\r
Eat here. You won't regret it.
Pros: THE FOOD; fantastic, friendly service
Cons: weird location and building by the beltway - but it's sooooo forgivable given how great it is!
