Stopped here for a late meal and was surprised they would still be able to seat is at 9 pm on a Sunday night. They were efficient! The food was fresh and healthy looking, which is what I was looking for. Best part was they serve Pepsi products!

I discovered this place about a couple of years ago, and I could not be happier I did. The setting is not the most charming one -- an uninspired strip mall, like the hundreds you'll find in Houston. However, you can tell the owners have made an effort to put a little more soul into their little corner. They make do with what they've got going.

The first thing that stands out in the food department is most certainly the pita chips, which are baked with some sort of cheese on it and come with olive oil and spice. They'll glorious. Beware, you might end up filling yourself up off of those.

There's an array of delectable main courses to choose from. I typically go for the beef bits with saffron rice and veggies. It is absolutely DELICIOUS. That saffron rice is some of the best I've ever had. I'm getting hungry and homesick just thinking about it.

Typically at least one person in my family also gets the mango chicken. I've had a taste, and it is absolutely glorious, too.

My dad's an incredibly difficult person to satisfy with food. He usually sticks to salads only at restaurants, and most of the time he doesn't like them. But he loves all the salads here.

All I can say is, I've been to this place with at least eight people several times, and not once has anyone said their plate was anything less than great. A true winner.

Service was great, food was great. I am a veggie lover and had the grilled veg platter. Hubby meat lover had mixed grill. Both were super delicious.

The crackers and oil at the beginning were fantastic. The wait staff was prompt and attentive, and had recommendations. I had a tilapia dish that was unbelievable and my wife had a pecan salmon salad that was very good. The desserts looked good but we were too full. The prices were a little high in my opinion, but that's what happens when you eat around the galleria.
