I steaks are full of flavor, tender and juicy. Normally I dont eat steak or red meat, but I always over do it at Peli Peli.

I take all of my out-of-town guest to Peli Peli - Vintage Park for dinner. I have not received 1 complaint yet. Why? Because this is a unique restaurant that has excellent customer service. Also the food is AWESOME! Everyone can't wait to return to Houston and get back to Peli Peli.

I had lunch here with my husband and it was wonderful. The food here is very good especially the lamb chops and grilled brussel sprouts. The wings were tasty as well. I highly recommend trying this restaurant.

Everything about the restaurant was excellent. The ambiance was very nice, great for business or a date. The dishes are either very unique or take an unusual twist on standard fare. They have a great wine list, and the staff is very attentive. I'll be stopping in every time that I go to Houston.

I took my wife there last night Feb 8, 2016 for her 40th b-day. Great table, flowers that I had sent were on the table, Carlos our waiter was an excellent server, basically it was a great night to celebrate my honey's b-day. I ordered the Caesar salad with shrimp, awesome, she ordered the Prawn bisque and the Peli Peli... More

Depending on what you order, this is a pretty good restaurant. The taste of many of the items is a bit different because it is S. African, but that can be a good thing now and then. It's a nice change now and again,

Peli Peli has really lovely ambiance, great for a date night. The food was delicious, and the waitor was very helpful. The "Flavors of South Africa" entree was delicious with beautiful presentation. The location is also nice for a date because you can walk around and window shop afterwards, or sit by the fountains outside and talk.

My nephew is a "foodie" and insisted we go. Each of us got a different entree and shared so that we could capture the essence of Peli Peli. In a word, "what?". Each menu item was OK, but hardly worth raving about. The service is exceptionally good, and the ambiance is interesting, but food-wise I'd give it a "C".

I think everybody loves this place but me. I just "like" it. The problem is that too many items have too little flavor. Their signature prawns, in particular, are gorgeous. They look like the best shrimp in the world, and they are gigantic, but they are always bland.

First visit; I searched for a near-by brunch with excellent reviews. The waiter was attentive and knowledgeable about the food and the restaurant providing a small brochure to answer many questions (the screened boxes along the walls in particular). Food & service were very good; my husband tried and liked the Kingklip fish. I went with eggs benedict & steak;... More
