“Must Have Mediterranean!”
Reviewed October 29, 2013 via mobile

The owners - Sandra & Peter (brother & sister duo) are very proud to serve their time honored family recipes. If you're visiting Houston take the time to visit this "out of the way" sweet success! Flipping amazing pistachio baklava and fill up on the non sweeties too! The falafel may well be the best in town. Say yes to the best!

“Good Shish Kabobs”
Reviewed July 29, 2013

This is a newer, smaller, family owned restaurant. Had the Chicken Kabob - two skewers with rice and salad $8. It was enough for lunch the next day. Kabob was tasty and would definately get it again. Greek salad was tasty. Hummus was not the best I've had. I will definately try this restaurant again. Would like to try their meat pies and desserts.

A large group (12) went to eat and were pleased that everyone could be accomodated (vegeterians and glutten free) yet experience a great Mediterranenan meal. Lots of choices

“Quick and inexpensive”
Reviewed June 18, 2013

We like Mediterranean food and decided to stop in here on a whim, trying the falafel plate and the gyro plate with sides of tabbouleh salad and hummus. Both were fine but nothing special; the tabbouleh salad was awfully vinegary, and we wished we had opted for the cucumber and tomato salad instead. It's solid, decent food -- but in Houston, where you have a lot of super options in this genre, not anything to write home about. The people were really nice, though, and we wish them well!

“Always flavorful and fresh”
Reviewed May 12, 2013

Everything on the menu is excellent at this Mom & Pop. Can tell they take time and pride in preparation. Can be a bit slow. Many large parties.
