The opening of Mahesh’s Kitchen, a new family-owned Indian restaurant, is going to be an exciting new addition to Sugar Land Town Square.

For husband and wife Neelesh and Shubhangi Musale, food has always been an important part of their lives, and now they are the owners of their very first restaurant. Mahesh’s Kitchen will pay homage to Shubhangi’s late brother Mahesh, who after being admitted to culinary school at Le Cordon Bleu Paris passed away unexpectedly.

“Growing up, my younger brother Mahesh and I always dreamt of opening a restaurant together,” said Shubhangi in a statement. “Through this project, we’re keeping that wish and his spirit alive. As he made everyone around him feel special, our goal is to convey that same warmth to our staff and guests.”

The menu will include homestyle foods, fusion dishes, authentic staples and secret family recipes that have been passed down (yum). In addition, the couple promises that each dish will be made with fresh and organic ingredients. Every three months the restaurant will receive 300 pounds worth of spices from India.

“We’re excited to be the first Indian restaurant at Sugar Land Town Square, an upscale gathering place for this exceptionally diverse community that also draws visitors from around the city and the region with its mix of retail, restaurants, office, residential and hotel,” Neelesh said.

The new restaurant promises a chic 2,000 square-foot interior, a patio that can seat 26, an exhibition kitchen, and more. 

While there isn’t a set opening date yet, Mahesh’s Kitchen will be open seven days a week. More details to come.

The restaurant will be located at 16019 City Walk. Mahesh’s Kitchen can also be found on Instagram and Facebook
