From the outside Saigon Pagolac looks like nothing special, but inside you'll find what some call the best Vietnamese food in Houston, and that is actually quite a feat as Houston has the second largest Vietnamese community in the U.S. The Seven Course Beef is the big hit here with different cuts of beef and means of cooking the beef, as well as a variety of sauces, brought to the table. Other dishes are also cooked at the table, but if you're not in the mood for D.I.Y. dining, you get a nice bowl of Pho instead.
If appearances matter a lot to you, then this simple Vietnamese eatery is not the place for you. Thien Thanh is known for their banh cuon - a north Vietnam delicacy which is a kind of rice noodle roll, barbecued pork, shrimp pho and noodles. For the adventurer diner there are things like the water beetle dipping sauce that you can try. Don't forget to carry cash as they don't accept credit cards.

This mammoth, two-story dining extravaganza is located in Hong Kong City Mall in Houston’s new Chinatown. Ocean Palace is known for their dim sum, which is served in the second floor ballroom. A table for ten is a common sight. Patrons pack the immense space, eagerly eating while watching for the ladies pushing carts filled with tins of savory and sweet morsels. No need to know the language. Just point, nod, and say how many to get what you like. Those looking for a more refined dining experience will enjoy dinner downstairs any day of the week with delicious Chinese food staples as well as fresh seafood picked straight from the tank. -Gemma Amato
Do not be surprised if you see a real cowboy in this rustic restaurant. The wooden floors will make you feel like you're in an old western movie. It is a great place to wear your cowboy boots and jeans and chow down with your friends. This restaurant has been a family favorite for over 25 years. If it is meat you want, then meat you will get at this barbecue joint. Turkey, chicken, beef and pork dominate the menu. There are also veggies, coleslaw and beans to go around.
Experience the flavors of authentic Thai food at this modern eatery located in Houston's version of Chinatown. The atmosphere is bustling and fun, particularly during lunch. Quieter moments can be experienced in the afternoon or early evening. You will definitely want to try the pad Ka praw, a minced chicken dish that is the overwhelming favorite of diners. If you are feeling a little uncertain about the menu, the lunch buffet is a great way to sample a bit of everything. There is a great selection of Asian beers available.
Rarely do you get an authentic culinary representation of two completely different countries from two different continents in one single restaurant. The London Sizzler gives you just that and more with unbelievable Indian subcontinent fare that would make any Londoner feel right at home. Run by a British Indian family, this elegant hip spot will pour you a proper pint alongside your rich Chicken Tikka. If you respect yourself, you'll order Mom's Masala. Choose your meat (the goat is insanely delicious) for...MOM (you better believe she's back there) to sizzle with her secret blend of generational spices. This is one of Houston's best restaurants. -Adam Rosen
Amnesia Disco is one massive nightclub—the size of an aircraft hangar according to some. There are nights when all-night events take place. They also conduct salsa nights and international music nights for their patrons. The terrace has a glass roof to muffle the thumping sound and plays host to foam parties too! They also have a dry ice machine, which shoots jets of cold air through vents in the floor.
When you won't settle for anything less than the best, head to the source. Fung's Kitchen offers delectable, authentic Chinese cuisine, specializing in exotic seafood. Live king crab from Alaska, Atlantic and Pacific lobsters, live tilapia, and shark all grace the gourmet menu, each cooked in a distinct Hong Kong style. For that special occasion, add a touch of Asian flair by reserving one of their private rooms, with accommodations ranging from twenty to seventy guests. Don't need something that formal? Head to Fung's early on Sundays and enjoy the delicate taste of their famous Dim Sum Sunday lunch.

Family owned and operated, Blue Nile is an authentic Ethiopian restaurant. The traditional cuisine offered here is heavy on the vegetable side accompanied by spicy meat. Most dishes are large enough to share and come with Injera bread for dipping. They also have a wide range of vegetarian options.
