"Lackluster views but great food"

Seat Review From Section 401, Row 10, Seat 3
Apr 2014

Comments

Don't expect great views of the court from Section 401. Aside from the long distance down to the floor, the basket blocks out the middle of the lane and you can't see anything at the top of the key. If you're sitting back in the seats and the fans just in front at row 9 are leaning forward at all, it will also be difficult the see anything along the near baseline. One saving grace is the great viewing position to the large videoboard that faces directly at the seats.

But the best part about sitting here is the great food located just behind the seats. At Row 10 it was a short 4 row walk to get to the concourse, which had a lot of great options to choose from as well as good restroom access. Some of the more notable items on the menus nearby included kimchi burritos, spicy korean beef tacos, and multiple different nacho options.

Best for... fans on a budget, partying/socializing

Avoid if... you want to watch the game

    Better than having to walk down to first row

    Apr 2014

    Section 401, Row 10, Seat 3

    The view from behind the basket is not so great. The view of the other end of the court is pretty good (the Rockets shoot there in the 3rd and 4th quarters), but the view of the near basket is really obstructed by the hoop. The entrance to the section is in the top row, so you only have to walk down about 7 or 8 rows to your seats. The walk down to the front row would be much worse. Two sections away there is a very diverse stand of food: tacos, asian, stadium food and a creamery. I had the korean bbq and they took at least ten minutes to come out. But they were worth the wait! Water was more expensive than a Red Bull, which should be a crime.

    • "Typical Behind the Basket Seats"

      (Section 420) - -

      Pretty typical behind the basket seats. View isn't great and you can't see the big videoboards all that well. For the same price, you can sit in the corner and get views of the big board. The one OK thing about being in Row 10 was not having to walk a bunch of stairs to the seats. If you're in Ro...

    • "Leaning Forward Most of the Game"

      (Section 403) - -

      It was great sitting in the front row with no other fans in front to block the view, however the glass safety railing left me leaning forward to get a clear view. When sitting back normally in the seat you can still see through the glass and to the court, but found it to be very distracting and onl...

    • "Kinda Boring Up Here"

      (Section 417) - -

      It was kinda boring being up here. The court is really far away and there wasn't much food nearby. Not really a lot to say about these seats. You have an unobstructed view of the court, there just won't be a lot of thrills to go with.
