“You'll love light menu”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 8, 2013

try the hummus with a draft beer. Or you can buy anything in market and bring it into the restaurant. You can see locals and visiting celebrities. It's fun!!

“Exotic”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 1, 2013

A welcome addition. Mediterranean salad is good value, and a break from the usual Tex-Mex and barbecue that I usually find in Houston. Fascinating groceries from around the world, focused on the Mediterranean basin, and an eclectic selection of wines. Certainly gives the New York City exoticas a run for their money--Arabian Nights meets Whole Foods.

“This is it!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 22, 2012

Forget whole food, forget all New York's deli type restaurants and forget everything else you have tasted before as you are walking in the best restaurant, takeaway and supermarket in United States. Our visit to Houston is never completed without one visit a day to Phoenicia. If you like olives, they have the nicest collection of olives we have seen.

“So much to choose from!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 20, 2012

There was a huge selection of retail goods with a lot of ethnic diversity. The food bar was fantastic. It was nice that you can carry out or eat there.
