We were served by Italianna. She was very knowledgeable about all the menu items. I'm so excited to have such a great Restuarant so close to Cypress!

Just pick a dish. I guarantee you will be impressed. The prawns are a must, but I don't want to sway your decision. If you see something on the menu and it interest you GET IT! And even if you had it before GET IT! because you have never had it prepared like this. Enjoy!

If you like South African Flavors, you will adore this place. Great South African wine selection, second to none, with authentic cooking. Not a kid friendly place, but then my 12 year old really enjoyed the fish here!

We went to Peli Peli for a business dinner. We ended up sharing a tasting menu as well as a couple bottles of wine. The food was delicious and unique. Peli Peli presents what they claim is South African style food, adjusted for the tastes of us folks in the U.S. I can't comment on the veracity of the South... More

From the moment my family and I walked in the door, we were treated so well. Everybody greeted us. The food is terrific! It's fascinating to learn of the fusion of cultures that reveals itself in Peli Peli food. The atmosphere is warm, and even a bit entertaining. The manager came by our table at the opportune moment, and I... More

My friends and family have raved about Peli Peli's food and so my husband and I took the opportunity to visit during Houston Restaurant Week. The entire experience was fantastic. From the moment we entered the restaurant we were greeted and directed to our table. Cali, our server, was super friendly and patient with us as we asked questions about... More

Peli Peli has been on my radar for a couple of years, but for one reason or another, we've always ended up elsewhere in Vintage Park. A few times my husband checked out the menu and nixed it. Last night, it was the unanimous choice, as my two daughters and I chose it for a GNO dinner. What a good... More

Went there on a Friday for lunch with my great lady friends. I had never eaten there before. There were 5 of us, and only one or two had been there in the past. The menu was ambitious, varied, and deliciously inventive. The food came (3 sides which you can order separately, and 5 entrees) and - what can I... More
