Went to Sawa based on reviews and the gluten free and dairy free menu alerts. We were very impressed with the food! Super appealing presentation. Lots of colorful veggies used. Quite large portions at a reasonable price. You have to try the garlic sauce (thoum)....It’s a secret family recipe and deservedly so!! They were very careful to address our food allergies so defiant recommend for other sensitives!More

Went for a lunch after visiting space center Houston. Everything was flavorful and staff was courteous.

I ordered a falafel sandwich and hummus. My husband had the gyro. It was 1:00 pm on Saturday and we were the only ones in the restaurant. The waitress was friendly and accommodating. The food was well prepared and nicely presented. The pita for the...hummus was warm and the sandwiches were large. I would return with pleasure. Others did begin to drift in and the one waitress was not attentive at that point.More

The Sawa restaurant is relatively new (Google Earth still labels its building as "Colosseum Italian", which is the long-gone previous eatery's name), but it is a positive addition to the Clear Lake dining scene. The waitress was very friendly and quite helpful in guiding us...through the menu. We chose the beef kabobs and the chicken kabobs. They were brought out in good time, and both were excellent. The dinners were ample and came with tasty green salads as well. The lentil soup was spiced nicely. While we were there, there was a constant stream of folks picking up their to-go orders (which is nice to know for the future). There's plenty of parking around the side and back of the building. The interior decoration is indeed noticeably sparse, but that's not important -- I go to a place for its food and service, not for the pictures on its walls. Dinner for two with appetizer came out to about $38, before tax and tips. Quite reasonable, we thought. We'll look forward to stopping by Sawa again soon!More

I like the food at this restaurant. I haven’t been there for a year because it smelled funny before ( like molds). We went today to give it another try, and I found out that the place looks much better than before. Very clean, and...nice. It is not crowded at all. Food is good. The owner is friendly. It is great for fast lunch. I ordered one sampler and I was surprised that unlikely other restaurants, this plate had just one piece of falafel. Their hummus is so tasty. There are a lot of vegetarian options. Highly recommended.More

Our waitress was very welcoming and sweet. She promptly took our order, and it took a very short time for her to bring us our food. The owner even came out and greeted us. One of the best things about Sawa is the menu. Each...entree is marked depending on if it is dairy free, gluten free, or vegan. Also, the food is high quality. The beef that they use is filet, and it is very well seasoned and tender. Their lamb shank in yogurt sauce (which is a special item) is also one of the best things they cook. All the food I’ve had there is delicious, so I definitely suggest trying it!More

On our way from Galveston to Dallas we stopped at Sawa based on the reviews and the fact that they have gluten free options. We were told to find our own seats. There was a table of 8 and a table of 4 previously seated....We thought maybe there was just one wait person so we patiently waited for 10 minutes while the young man who greeted us came and went with food for the table of 8 and took the check from the table of 4. Another group came in, sat on their own and the young man gave them menus! (We still had no menus.) At this point my husband and I agreed we would give him five more minutes to bring us menus and speak to us. At minute four, two more groups came in and when he brought one of these tables menus, a lady at the table pointed to us and said, “I believe those people were here before us.” He didn’t seem to care. We got up to leave and he said nothing at all. We have no idea why since we waited patiently for menus and a greeting for 15 minutes!More
