I had the chicken wrap sandwich and was very pleased. It was delicious! My family had falafel wraps, which were good, but the chicken wrap wrap was really the best.

This is our go-to when we are in need of a quick nutritious meal. The service has always been fast and courteous while the food fast and delicious (with the exception of the falafel which, for some reason, I find a little bland thus the 4 rating). Need I say more?

We found Hovan Gormet by accident and I am so glad we did. We were walking around 5 points and happened to catch this gem located to the side. The staff was super helpful in helping us order and for everyone in the party to find something the liked. The food was absolutely delicious. We split the 5 choice Mezza... More

High quality ingredients, tasty, fresh and authentic. Happy if you're vegetarian or not. We have been in town for 2 days and have had 4 meals here. The Lemon Caper Chicken with a Mediterranean Salad on the side was my favorite. My wife loved the falafel and baba ghannouj.

I have been eating Hovan's pinwheels and salads for years! I used to frequent their food court locations at the Landing and the Regency mall. Now I can walk to their Riverside location when I work in the area. Wish they open a location close to me though!

3rd visit over the last few months. First 2 visits had the Falafel wrap which was delicious. Today I ordered Chicken Gyro. The chicken was very bland and almost rubbery. The girl taking orders behind the counter was not friendly, made ordering very complicated, and tried to ignore me and take an order from the person behind me. The owner... More

In the popular five points area is this Greek/counter style restaurant. I had a combination plate: Lamb Gyro, tabouli, and stuffed grape leaves. The Gyro was dry, the tabouli was wet, and leaves where medium. Gyro was wrapped in tinfoil and pulled out of a heating drawer. The only genuine thing about this place was the accent of the server.... More

My wife raves about this place! Stopped in to try after work and was impressed! Lamb kabobs with rice pilaf and grilled veggie. Excellent seasoning, taste, and texture!

There were only two Falafels left, my husband heard one of the employees ask if she should use those, the owner told her,"No, we'll make some more". How wonderful that a restaurant cares more about quality than the bottom line. Dogmas was great!! Bread was right out of the oven

Our family has long been fans of Hovan Gourmet Mediterranean Restaurant on Park Street at Five Points. We may have to drive a few miles, but we don't mind at all.
