Amazing service and food! The ambiance brings it all together and makes it a home run!
Booked a reservation here to try something "different" and because it always smells so good when I walk by. Let me say this place DID NOT disappoint. Wow. The service was outstanding. Our waiter Daniel was very informative of the foods, wines and sauces and made excellent recommendations. The drinks were delicious and the dessert was excellent. I normally wouldn't have ordered the desert he recommended but since everything else had been so good, I trusted his opinion. Why I waited so long to come here I have no idea but now I can see myself become a regular here. The beef espetada and lamb chomps were phenomenal. IMO the steak taste better here than at Steak 48.
My meat was ordered medium and it came out rare on a cold skewer. There could be more description and weights on the menu.
I got sick from the food. Overall, staff was great! I am just upset that I got very sick after 30 minutes of eating the meal.
Is a Great experience Culinary adventure!!! Truly international cuisine
Food makes up for the location.
Great restaurant for South African food. I came here with my girlfriend and they had amazing food. The wait time was not long at all and the food came to our table faster than expected. The noise level was moderate so I had an amazing time with my date and I would gladly come back for their regular menu because they have some great food.
Went there on Valentine’s Day to celebrate 9-year anniversary. Added note while making the reservation online as well as notified the receptionist upon arrival about this special occasion. Still, the waiter didn’t acknowledge the reason we were there, not even a single greeting. Even though the service is good from the waiter, this became just a regular dine-out, not a special occasion experience. The communication among staff is obviously lacking and manager’s crisis management can be enhanced. Very disappointed.
Great food. Amazing service. Really cool architecture
Highly recommend! Everyone in the Party was impressed with menu novelty, preparation, and service. Ambience can be noisy because of the room acoustics. Something to keep in mind when seated. Will definitely go back again. Hint; Peli Peli is inside the Galleria.
Amazing food. Amazing service. It made my husbands birthday extra special!
Our waiter Daniel was amazing! The food was fresh and delicious as always.
We went in around 2pm, the server handed us lunch menu. During our conversation he recommended cuisine on dinner menu, we checked it but decided to stick with lunch menu. We though we ordered from lunch menu, but it turned out the server ordered from dinner menu, which has bigger portion and we didn't notice that since it's our first time there, WITHOUT asking! The general service is quit slow, and sometimes have to wait for a while to get served which is not normal at 2pm...pretty disappointed.
Wonderful atmosphere, waiter was outstanding and the food was exceptional! Overall a fantastic experience!
We were disappointed to see the menu changes they've made. They no longer have the mango coleslaw or the sweet potato fries which we always ordered. Hopefully, they will reconsider and put them back on the menu.
Great server; Food was amazing and very flavorful
Excellent service from Daniel. He knows the menu well and gave excellent recommendations. Food was amazing as were the cocktails
25th Wedding Anniversary
Peli Peli was great! The food was delicious and the wine list was impeccable. I will definitely be dining there again!
First time here so had no expectations. Food was pretty good, but what made our experience awesome was our server. If you go to Peli Peli you have to ask for Yuseef as she was fantastic. Probably one of the best servers ever, as she got us excited about trying different things and explaining the different flavors in the food. Yuseef you will not be disappointed!!
This was my first time to try South African food - it was fantastic! Our waiter was very helpful in explaining each dish; he made great suggestions.
The food was fabulous! We were there for a very special occasion - our 25th wedding anniversary - and we chose Peli Peli because some good friends recommended it. And it certainly lived up to the recommendation!
Food quality and ambience were VERY underwhelming and did not live up to the hype or the price.
We took advantage of the Christmas Day dinner special - the Beef Wellington. It was superb! Our waiter in the resturant was very personable and professional and provided us with excellent service.
However, our experience in the bar was NOT enjoyable! I looked at the cocktails in the bar menu and the most expensive was $14.00 - consistent with most of the other upscale restaurants in the Galleria area. So I ordered an apple martini and my guest ordered a Grey Goose Cosmo. The bill was $45.00! Where did that come from? Sorry but that is totally out of line - especially since we had to wait about 20 minutes for the drinks. It was NOT busy and the bartender was obviously taking his time, stopping to chat with other customers.
We will be back for dinner but we will NOT be patronizing this bar!
Really bad service on Christmas. Waited half hour past our reservation. Food was cold. We sent it back and still got charged for the full meal, even though we ended up sharing one
The food, ambience, and service was great !! I will be coming back !!
Christmas Day, staff were terrific and upbeat despite working on a holiday. What a nice gift!
Can't believe a pretty nice restaurant in the Galleria Mall going down so bad.The food is bad and the presentation are so cheap and you are not fit in one of the best mall in America.
Lovely staff and fresh, well-prepared food.
Great restaurant within the galleria. Great for lunch meetings or to take a quiet break from shopping. The service was slightly slow when we first arrived (and they weren't busy) but actually improved as they got busier.
Looking for something different with excellent service this is a great choice.
Delicious and timely
Ordered 4 Filet Mignon and 1 of their signature beef dishes...none of the steaks came out cooked to the requested temperature (off by a lot in 2 cases. Ordered Medium and received rare in one instance, ordered mid-rare and received Medium Well in another) The manager was nice and brought I requested alcoholic beverages to the table to make amends, but did not ask if we were drinkers, and we are not so it was a nice gesture but ended up being a waste of alcohol.
Food was not great.
Peli Peli has been one of my family’s favorite restaurants in Houston. We appreciated the delicious, well cooked, & flavorful foods here, thinking and telling others, “world class level of food,” however, the recent dinner that we had to celebrate for our oldest daughters’s college graduation was not the same experience as we had in the past. The menu was changed for the worse. Our favorite South African Samplers were OK, but our favorite chicken was absent...disappointed. Great Karoo Lamb Chops was over cooked and dry, Center Cut Filet was over cooked as well and was sent back and replaced. My used to be favorite dinner was out, and I chose similar looking dish..Sandy Bay Skillet, hoping to be as good as the old one. But that dinner was awful...not much flavor, just salty...almost looks like this restaurant has new chef, went down to a random restaurant level. I literally said to my family, “I am mourning...”
I love cooking and I really appreciate the efforts, time and energy that people put in for great food. I wondered what’s going on in this restaurant. I feel like we need to find another good restaurant to appreciate real and good food.
Everything was wonderful, the food and the drinks! Great service as well!
Birthday 🎂 for vegan friend!
My group had a great time. The service was excellent and food and drinks were amazing. Will definitely visit Peli Peli again soon.
Second time dining and the Chicken Espetada was amazing! Look forward to trying other items!
A bit pricey but well worth it for the quality of food, service and the ambience.
One disappointment was that, as a South African, the “melktert” was very different to what we get in South Africa - I had high hopes!
