Hunan Emperor is a rarity as far as Chinese restaurants typically go. This longtime West Houston eatery does Chinese food as well as any place in the city, but it confidently ups the ante with its affordable Sunday brunch special. From 11a to 2p on Sundays, take the family for a really fresh buffet, equipped with several courses and brunch-standard bubbly. A little orange juice and your Champagne flute will be in the mimosa business. The soups are really nice - not too salty as many restaurants sometimes go. The staff is very personable and will keep you coming back. -Adam Rosen

You will enjoy the show at this family-oriented pizzeria. The booths are always packed, with all eyes turned to the playful chefs flinging pizza dough high into the air. This sight is guaranteed to entertain the kids for the entire visit. Obviously, pizza is the name of the game, but do not expect these pizza pies to be anything like those mediocre home-delivered pizzas. Both the pizzas and the eggplant parmigiana inspire many repeat visits.
This popular restaurant with its no-frills decor and service does not offer much in terms of atmosphere but the food has an appeal of its own. The somewhat cramped interior makes family dining a bit difficult but it is still the perfect spot for anyone looking for a good meal at an affordable price. Warm up with one of many delicious soups or try the hot pot if you need something more substantial. You will be happy with just about any of the Vietnamese or Chinese selections.

Scenic decor that includes a handsome limestone fireplace and a trickling pond promises diners an enchanting experience. Conveniently located near several prominent West Houston hotels, it attracts a large number of business diners, especially during lunch. But, it is certainly romantic enough for love struck couples. Contemporary dinner entrees, like the chili-crusted filet of beef with oyster mushroom and pasilla chili sauce are definitely priced well for the quality. Wines are somewhat costly but the quality is rarely disappointing.
