The May Hit List: Kata Robata, Xin Chao, Khoi Barbecue, and More


The start of May marks the kickoff to Asian American Pacific Islander (AAPI) Heritage Month, which honors a wide rage of histories, cultures, achievements, and contributions of Americans of Asian and Pacific Island descent.

In celebration, we’ve compiled a special Hit List of few of our favorite Asian restaurants in the Bayou City, because nothing brings people together more than a delicious meal — and Houston’s got them in abundance. Think of this guide as a jumping-off point to kick off your Asian food tour of the city.

From incredible omakase experiences and luxurious Indian cuisine to casual (but equally mouthwatering) Malaysian street food and Laotian and Thai fare, find all these and more right here.
