I love everything about it. Food was wonderful. They were very nice the whole time
Best south African in food town, love the dishes and the staff is always so friendly.
The food & service was great. The seating area in the mall entrance hallway is horrible with people constantly passing interrupting the meal. It’s too narrow for tables on both sides. Strollers & walkers can’t get through without a patron having to get up. Maybe stagger them so they aren’t directly across from each other. It is very unpleasant
One of Houston's finest restaurants! Unusual food, with a wonderful taste! Great service!
1st time we dined at Peli Peli, and we were not impressed. While the portions are quite large and the quality is fairly good, but way over priced for the quality of the food and service. There are way too many other restaurants in Houston that offer much better quality at more fair prices with much better ambiance. Needless to say, we will not be returning to Peli Peli.
Our server Matthew was superb. His knowledge about the food per palette was soothing to the ears and helpful in making a quick decision for a new timer like myself.
I wouldn’t call the noise level energetic. It was noisy.
The decor is really nice, the food is great and the presentation makes the food even better. Large portions and the food is top tier. Service was excellent.
Serving same food for years. It’s good enough but getting boring. And if you have an issue don’t expect a response from management or for anyone to care.
Peli. Peli is one of our favorite places. However I had never been to Galleria location before and I would not go back there. Parking was HORRIBLE, the overall ambience of this location was lacking to me. Felt like my table was just too close to other diners and basically in a hallway type area. Food as always excellent but for a nice Anniversary meal it was a let down.
Such an incredible experience from food to serve! Will be back!
Took my team to lunch. Great service, amazing food.
First visit to Houston- mother/daughter trip
It was too hot in the restaurant... I’m 175lb (no fat boy) and my chick and I were burning up.. Put it down a few more degrees
One of my favorite restaurants in Houston. My only complaint was the peli peli wings were dried out.
Great experience! Great food!
Food and service was great. The host gave us a tour of the restaurant and our waiter was helpful and informative.
We had a great experience! Food was delicious, and service was great. We had the babotie for starters. I had the peli peli shrimp with mango slaw & Brussel spous and my dinner date had the chicken Estrada with mango slaw & spinach. For dessert we shared a sticky toffee cake... oh so good!
ambiance great for conversation. food was delicious!
Great meal, excellent waiter
Excellent food and extremely good wait staff.
I wanted a nice quiet birthday dinner with my hubby but when I got there it was extremely loud and I didn’t like the seating it was too crowded and uncomfortable even when I asked them to bring a cake dish out for my birthday when I reserved the table they didn’t follow through. To top it off, I ended up leaving my goodie bag of left over estepada I think that’s how it’s spelled. 😕food was great 👍🏽
Good food. Good atmosphere. I'd recommend this restaurant for both casual and special occasions.
Food was delicious, service was outstanding. Great experience.
We are regulars of Peli Peli . The food is always great. Last time we were there was last Saturday. Our waiter Israel was great and very helpful. My only question was why were we taxed for the free gift cards we used. I would understand taxing the paid Gift cards we bought. The free gift cards are like coupons and are not to be taxed. We always purchased this kind of promotion, like buy $100 get $25 free gift cards at Pappas Restaurant. They don't tax the $25 free gift cards if you use it. Only the $100 paid gift cards. thanks
Drove 4 hours for dinner because it was such a pleasant evening
Excellent food, taste and presentation. Our server was very attentive, informative and efficient. We had a farewell luncheon for a coworker. I would highly recommend.
Delightful dinner with many South African flavors. Beautiful decor yo match the food. Roman was our waiter and he was excellent!
I have dined at Peli Peli several times. Each time is just ok. This particular night the service was fantastic and the food was even better. Looking forward to returning.
Food was amazing, but the service was terrible the servers were all rude. The only people who were respectful were the greeters in the front, I would take my money elsewhere
Great atmosphere and great food. Our waiter was Jasmine. She was extremely helpful and knowledgeable about the menu.
Went here for dinner with the family. Food was good and a change from the regular all around taste from other restaurants. Service was quick but not perfect. Ceiling lights wasn’t pleasant. Overall, a good experience and a change of taste.
It was great!
Went there for Mother’s Day. The noise level of the screaming kids was unbearable. The menu was limited. It would’ve been nice to have complimentary “mom”osas. I did not enjoy myself.
Mother’s Day brunch with the family was great. My reservation was honored and the table was ready. Our waiter Nico was great and everyone truly enjoyed the food. I’ll be back.
Food was pretty good if it was hot, but they had terrible service. Food came out in multiple stages and some of it was cold. Some people got their food and then the rest were not served for about 10 minutes. Ridiculous. We will not return to this location.
Mother’s Day brunch!!!
The taste of the food was just nothing. I only took a bite of my food and was just tasteless. Note to people, do not go on special days like mother's day. Everything will be mediocre.
Not sure what the hype was so we decided to try it on mother’s day for brunch. It was obviously a busy day. We waited for our food for about an hour. Wait staff was good. Kitchen was not prepared for a busy day. Order brunch food during brunch time. Lesson learned.
