Chef Kiran Verma, considered the ‘godmother of Indian fine dining,’ has created world-class Indian cuisine at her eponymous restaurant, which reopened at its new location in Upper Kirby in January 2017.
Chef Kiran is a self-taught chef who has been guided by her Indian upbringing and a love of fine cuisine. She defines her cuisine as a combination of cultures, philosophies and cooking techniques. The restaurant is known for serving up Indian hospitality, with French sophistication and American informality. Kiran’s award-winning wine list of over 300 labels, along with monthly wine dinners, complements the delicate flavors of the food. Guests can also enjoy an Afternoon Tea service every Friday and Saturday at Kiran’s. Chef Kiran recently launched her own chai blend.
Chef Kiran's awards, accolades and involvement include Zagat 2006's Best New Restaurant, Wine Spectator Award of Excellence from 2006-2016, My Table Magazine 2010 and 2013 Chef of the Year Nominee, participant in Michelle Obama’s 2010 ‘Chefs Move to Schools’ Campaign, and involvement with Aid to Victims of Domestic Abuse, March of Dimes, Virtuosi of Houston, Houston Symphony, Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo, Leukemia & Lymphoma Society, M.D. Anderson, UNICEF, Akshaya Patra, and Recipe for Success among others.
