One of our favorite places to eat in Houston! Not fancy, but the atmosphere is nice and you are never rushed by the staff for your table. Food is freshly made and amazing. Love the pita chips and dipping sauce it comes with. I typically get the 3 sampler veggie entree. Great way to get 3 different items because I... More

My husband and I came for dinner this is our first visit here. The service was excellent and the food even better. We shared the 2 skewer combo we got beef and chicken with rice and vegetables. The beef was cooked perfect everything was delicious! We also got a Greek salad. The owner was so nice and checked on us.

This was my first time going to this restaurant. I treated myself to dinner on my birthday last week. I had a good time. The location is in a plaza next to Edwards Greenway Grand Palace, where I went for a movie after dinner. The service at the restaurant was not very good. I made my observation to the manager...

We stopped in a Saturday morning for an early lunch. There was only one other couple in the restaurant. I had no previous experience with this restaurant and have never heard anyone speak about it.

I went this restaurant many years ago and decided to go again. The humus, baba ganoush, tahini and ratatouille were excellent. The pita chip with Za tar dipping sauce was so good we had seconds! The spanakopita was over cooked. The chicken, beef and kibbeh was great. Overall I will be back!

I tried this restaurant while I was staying in Houston and I absolutely loved it. The chicken skewer with tabboule and hummus was so flavorful, I ate every bite until my stomach hurt.

I really enjoy my meal each time I go. Delicious kabobs, salads and sandwiches. Its a nice change from the usual grab and go lunchtime meals. Everything on the menu is fresh and tasty. You can't go wrong with the lunch menu and the dinner plates are amazing.
