Had a very enjoyable dinner with friends and family. Food is always good. Staff is very friendly. I felt that the stuffed grape leaves were quite small but they were tasty. The fried cauliflower appetizer was very good. I did not feel like having a large entree so I went with the original chicken wrap. It was good and a... More

I changed my office location and been away too long. The food is fresh and so tasty. I do like the Kafta Kabob plate with Hummus and I get a side of Tabouli - because it is so fresh tasting. The vermicelli rice that comes with the plate was cooked to perfection. Dad still walks around offering a cup of... More

A relative unfamiliar with this type of food took us by when we were visiting from out of town. Our whole lives we have eaten and prepared all of the food Cafe Lili serves. We shared a wide variety of the dishes and unlike what you would ever expect from a restaurant, we could taste the handmade perfection, spot-on proportion... More

West to visit a family member in Houston and always look for the Triple D restaurants. We found Cafe Lili. Guy had been there on Monday, we show up on Friday. Very unassuming restaurant in a strip mall of about 5 restaurants. All different flavors which attests to Houston's diversity. My son and I enjoy Lebanese food. My daughter and... More

Just off Chimney Rock on Westheimer is a bit of Mediterranean heaven. It’s not a big place but it’s clean and bright. You can tell there are regulars which is a good sign. The appetizers are usually enough to share and the wine list is nice if not massive. I’ve neve3r had room for dessert here but they look good.... More

Met some friends for casual lunch. Got the 1/2 chicken special. The chicken was mostly boneless the skin crisp and not greasy, literally the best chicken I have ever eaten ever. And I eat a lot of chicken. Really really really good. The other menu items are decent but I'm telling you get the chicken special it's amazing. Not cheap... More

Very clean family owned restaurant. Popular with locals and the Lebanese community. I've been coming here for years, and it never fails to disappoint. We normally order a selection of the appetizers. Everything is a de to order, they bring it out whenever it's ready. Be sure to try the Lima bean salad and the fried kibe. The falafel is... More

We came here with the recommendation of our Lebanese friends and were not disappointed. It offered a varieties of side dishes. We especially enjoyed the stuffed grape leaves, meat and spinach pies, and yogurt and cucumber salad. The hummus though was on the drier side. The choice of meat entrees were limited, just beef and chicken. However, all tasted great.... More

Always wonderful service and food will be found at Cafe Lili. There is no rush to get you in and out. Really a nice dinning experience. Take your time and enjoy different Middle Eastern treats. The main thing is to enjoy the different tastes and time.

Really good middle eastern food. The chicken is so tender, you don't need a fork. The service is good and friendly. I don't care for their hummus, and the pita is tough, but in general the food is good. I've been three times.
