It took almost a year for Kiran Verma to move to her new home in the Kirby Grove building near Greenway Plaza, but absence for the chef’s fine dining Indian fare has only made its return more satisfying. The new Kiran’s is larger than the original, with a dedicated bar-lounge area that should make it a happy hour destination.
The new location also brings lunch service for the first time; Verma presents a range of soups, salads, sandwiches, and biryani rice dishes that offer Indian flavors in approachable forms. At dinner, signature dishes like tandoori rack of lamb and snapper still deliver big flavors. With options like saffron panna cotta available, diners should definitely save room for dessert.
