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.
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.
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.
Decided to take my wife for Sunday brunch for her birthday and the food and service well exceeded my expectations.
We reserved a table three days in advance and when we arrived they were not ready. The receptionists were rude, untrained, and they assigned us a beer table in the bar, just beside all sport TVs....
The menu is presumptive, with exaggerate prices, and the South Africa food is none to see. Don’t go there, it’s a waste of money and time!
I already have recommended Peli Peli to friends after our first visit!
When we first arrived, the head bar tender, Leo, saw us first and started helping us! And BOY was he a help! Great to talk with, very informative, and helpful at getting our table going! But, then our waitress, Uss, was FABULOUS! I friended her on Facebook, haha! The food was fabulous! We are nearly impossible to please with eating out. We barely like to eat out, but it was our 18th Anniversary and we didn't want to go to the usual spots. Here's the part of what we had that we did not like: King Fish in the seafood skewer dish (forget the name- Espatada??). Just not a yummy fish. I would like an all shrimp and scallop skewer. But, we'll still get it again with that fish if needed, because it was awesome!! And, I didn't enjoy the two desserts I tried. If you're sensitive to sweetness, the sticky toffee pudding will be too much. But then the pudding in the tart w/ whipped cream was almost flavorless and had a WALL of a flavorless graham cracker crust. Add more brown sugar in it, for cying out loud! What we LOVED are the brussel sprouts. Even if you hate coconut or brussel sprouts, adding those magical African spices in them makes them about my favorite food in Houston, now! All the veggies were awesome! The waffles were just heavenly! I did not like the schnitzle! I was thinking: sausage. It was chicken fried chicken that was a little too think in the middle for me, and the breading, again, was flavorless! : / But, it was okay! Overall, it was still the best dining experience we've had in Houston. We'll be back!
Great surprise... Be careful about the spice. Park the car in the yellow garage!
Great food and waiter explained menu well.
My husband and I were celebrating our anniversary and had a wonderful time at Peli Peli. It was our first dining experience there, which we were well pleased with the service, meal and atmosphere. We look forward to going again soon.
LOVE this restaurant! We ordered the wings, kingklip and filet mignon. SO delicious. The service was EXCELLENT and the space is gorgeous!
As always, we had a GREAT time!!! This visit was with 2 friends who were new to the experience, but enjoyed themselves and look forward to returning! The servers were ALL fantastic, from Drake and Calvin to Ron and Leo at the bar. 😊 These guys helped set what was a simple brunch among friends, to an afternoon of laughter and good times! Thanks again, until next time....
Wonderful flavors for such African inspired dishes. Truly culture on a plate. The seafood cakes with Kingklip were delish, as well as the prawn skillet ... just the right amount of heat on the back. Highly recommend! I was nervous choosing a mall restaurant (so against my beliefs for foodie local but exceeded my expectations greatly!
