Tucked away in an HEB plaza, this restaurant is a secret gem and the best value anywhere for quality sushi. Excellent service makes dining enjoyable, vegan options ensure it’s inclusive for all diners, and the sake is the perfect complement to the food. The prices here allow you to try a little of everything, so newbies and veteran Japanese food-lovers will all leave happy.

This understated eatery can be deceiving. The dining room is relaxed and diner-esque, but the meals are surprisingly elevated and as good as you’ll find in any high-end restaurant. Cocktails here are strong and service is excellent. Check the daily specials board for off-menu surprises.

This new Indian restaurant in the former Turquoise space in Town Center has already made a name for itself. The Avocado Bhel, rack of lamb with house-made hummus, and Goan Fish in a coconut, red chili, coriander, and garam masala sauce are all aromatic and flavorful, and the Laal chili goat sings.

The royale burger with cheese might be a classic at Guru, but they’re best known for their fig newton – a burger topped with homemade fig spread, goat cheese, bacon, and arugula. Guru recently added burger bowls to their menu, along with vegetarian and gluten-free options, so everyone can find something to love here.

The name says it all. This is an eatery unafraid of weird combinations, and nothing’s been so good since peanut butter found chocolate. Yes, Jupiter’s pizza is fresh and innovative, and the waffles are crispy on the outside, and warm and spongy on the inside. The real standout here, though, is breakfast, especially the morning belle – a waffle, paired with fried chicken, eggs, and gravy. It just doesn’t get any better.

Sugar Land mainstay Corelli’s remains a favorite with an extensive menu featuring doughy, just-right pizzas, traditional hearty pasta, and lighter choices like the snapper Napoli. Save room for the homemade tiramisu and the New York cheesecake. Delizioso! 

It may have a Missouri City address, but Brandani’s has been claimed by Sugar Land since it opened. The place to see and be seen, the restaurant carefully curates its wine and serves consistently mouth-watering fare. Its three-course lunch menu offers perfect portions and gives you just enough time for a great glass of wine.
