I eat here at least once a week and just love the place. The owner is a really friendly guy and you can tell he cares about the food they serve. All the options I need and just so fresh. Reasonable prices.

This is the only place I have ever had Falafel that had the same taste and texture as what my Israeli friends make. If all you've had is the heavy lumpy balls that other places try to pass off as falafel, you must try it here. I just wish this place was closer to home and work, I would eat... More

Great little spot in 5 Points. Their hummus is really tasty. It has a medium texture. Their tabouleh is also tasty with a middle of the road taste. The two items work together wonderfully. Note that at night it transforms into a different dining experience. They take your order at the table more like a normal restaurant.

Great deal for dinner $8.99 for gyro & two sides. Gyrowas delicious, fresh, & hot. Skip Wendy's across the street & come here for a wow lunch or dinner well within budget.

Great service and fresh quality authentic food. I have had the beef gyro, falafel, and hummus and everything has always been fabulous. It may be kind of like 'fast food' but you will slowly savor each bite. Fresh seasonings, paprika, olive oil, pita chips, tzatziki sauce. Now I want to go...

I gave Hovan 🌟🌟🌟 for average because this review system isn't broken up into restaurant genres. It is very good though and we would certainly go back. I had a gyro, Greek salad, & Fava beans. All tasted great and were prepared with love.

I am a sucker for Middle Eastern food, so it's no surprise I left here happy. The service was incredibly good; we were offered samples of hummus, tabbouleh, and baba ganoush to help us make up our minds. I got the falafel sandwich, which was amazing, as was the baba ganoush side. My husband was less than impressed with his... More

Centrally located in the 5 Points, Hovan offers a variety of tasty Mediterranean options in a casual atmosphere. I've gone to Hovan several times and have never been disappointed. The customer service is excellent. The prices are very reasonable. There are several vegetarian options, which is a rare and nice treat for me as long time vegetarian.

Located in the Five Points this restaurant always has great food and friendly service. Their hummus is some of the best in JAX and all their entrees are top notch. I especially love the moussaka!
