“Love this Sunday brunch!”
Reviewed August 19, 2014

This restaurant offered an excellent atmosphere, excellent service, and excellent food. It is a bit pricey for brunch (approx. $25), so I will reserve it for an occasional visit. The food is fresh and delicious.

“Leaves other Houston brunch spots in their dust!”
Reviewed August 18, 2014

Baba Yega isn't just a restaurant - it's an experience! It's one of those lazy Sunday afternoon places that you take a group of friends to sit, eat, drink, gossip and enjoy the day. The food - oh the food! The buffet covers every possible craving you could have, from the omelet and waffle station, to Eggs Benedict, beautifully cut fresh fruit, every slice of meat your heart could imagine and then desserts. The desserts alone would keep you coming back for more. The staff are always friendly and helpful, the bartenders know just how to make a mimosa that isn't drowned in orange and they do a good job of getting folks in the door without waiting too long. This will forever be one of my favorite Houston spots for brunch. The reasonable pricing will always suit your budget and the beautiful surroundings will impress any group. It's a must visit!

“Great buffet, unique restaurant”
Reviewed August 11, 2014

Definitely get the buffet when you go here. Food is great and the selection is vast. The atmosphere is unique and the restaurant has its charm. For some this could translate to cramped and old.

“Excellent!”
Reviewed July 28, 2014 via mobile

Wide array of food. The pesto trout with rice and veggies was super. There is a charming patio with fountains - ask for a table with a view of that.
