This is my favorite restaurant in the world! I jump at the chance to eat here when in Austin. My latest visit yesterday was just as good as the first time I visited awhile back. The buffet items stay the same and all dishes are marked with the ingredients. The fire oven pita bread is simply the best!

The abundantly stocked and varied buffet allowed me to quickly gather plenty of delicious food for our family's lunch. Hot, fresh, and delicious.

Great food and great value!! I will be returning every time I go to Austin.....I went to the one near The Woodlands when I went there. This is the same food at a great price.

I'd heard about this place from a friend who knows we like to try Persian/Mediterranean food. There is an abundance of food but all wasn't as it should be. The cauliflower was way over cooked as was the okra but the gyro meat and the curry chicken were very good. The lamb, while very tender, didn't have much flavor. The... More

We came here for lunch with my husband's group. It's a buffet style. We seated or picked our own long table ourselves. There were three sections of buffet with different kinds of Mediterranean delicacies, from vegetables/salad, meat, flat breads, to desserts. There were soda fountain and coffee makers for drinks. There was a place/oven in a little corner where they... More

Very good buffet of Mediterranean food and desserts. Very friendly place for families or groups. Its my second time on my second trip to Austin and it's worth the drive from downtown. Yes is not cheap but its worth it

I enjoyed dining here while in Austin that I ate there two nights in a row! I am vegetarian so it is hard to dine at places so I opted for this place due to it being a buffet. The items are all marked with what they are and what it is exactly made with. That took away a lot... More

Food was very good, fresh, great selection. Surprised to see stuffed grape leaves, hummus, chopped salad, fish, lamb shanks many healthy options. This was a great find for us. Happy to find it and will be returning. I almost forgot to mention the semolina cake! So good!

Having tried Dimassi's in Houston and being disappointed, I was delighted with the meal in this location. It had a genuinely large assortment of meats and vegetables traditionally associated with Mediterranean diet. Specific choices I found to be satisfying: Gyro Chicken Baba ganoush Cauliflower Green beans Saffron rice The only disappointment was the crisp pita being a bit stale. Highly... More
