Great variety of Lebanese and Mediterranean food across from the NRG stadium. Includes drinks! I had natural tamarind water, as many refills as you like, and can have different drinks. Also have fresh fruit and dessert options. Two people paid about $27 for the whole buffet including drinks. A lot of choices, fresh food and family multicultural ambience. No way... More

Wow, we just left this gem and have some happy tummies! There is a huge buffet with very fresh selections. The salads were my favorites, and even hubby, who is not into Mediterranean food, pigged out. The place is super clean, the employees very nice, and the restaurant very busy (always a good sign)! We will definitely be coming back... More

Great food, and wonderful service. The best thing is that there's always something new and good in the buffet.

Food is always fresh. If your a vegetable eater, it's as fresh as it gets. Gyro meat is included. Garlic dip is worth the trip alone. So many traditional dishes, too many to name. Love the tebouli. Desserts are included with coffee. Something for everyone.

Went to lunch Saturday afternoon since we were working. This is the 2nd time we have visited and enjoyed the food. Good selection of both vegetarian and meat dishes to satisfy everyone's stomach. Good selection of desserts as well. Cons if any is that the buffet maybe over priced.

No, it certainly isn't the fanciest of places. Basic table and chair seating in this restaurant located in a strip mall on Kirby. (Don't let the map on Tripadvisor fool you, this location is on Kirby Drive,not Richmond). The restaurant appeared to be very clean and the staff was quite friendly. Food here was very good served on a very... More

We were guests for lunch. The Mediterranean Buffet does have a wide range of salads, breads, meat dishes and vegetables. But the quality was mediocre. The taste was average, at best. It is also pricier than Fadi's, where the quality is better and food taste fresher!

Food is amazing, best Dolmas ever. Surprisingly good fried chicken. Buffet is priced nicely and you can eat as much as you want then take a nice walk to work it off.

We were visiting Houston and ran across this restaurant. We frequent one with the same name in Austin and wondered aloud if they were affiliated. Once in side it was clear to us that they must be. This restaurant offers the same buffet as the one in Austin with one exception and that is Austin offers a fresh baked bread... More
