If you are looking for something delicious and different, go out of your comfort zone and try Peli Peli. Located in the Galleria, it's convenient during or after shopping. It's also worth the trip from home! You'll recognize many dishes made with South African spices...More

Was at Peli Peli with friends. We had drinks and happy hour appetizers before our meal. Both were good - drinks and appetizers - I especially liked the peppidews stuffed with cream cheese. The restaurant has a very nice atmosphere - soft lighting, nice ambience....More

Peli Peli has done a masterful spot of hitting the sweet spot for interesting, unusual cuisine. It's different, but accessible to foodies and non-foodies alike. The flavors are delicious and unusual, but not so odd or overly spicy as to be unappealing to more conservative...More

Had read glowing reviews, but it just didn't live up to the hype. "Fire roasted oysters" were not delicious (that's our family code word for "tasted really bad") - I'm not sure they had ever seen a fire. Our party each ate one, then didn't...More

My favorite restaurant in Houston! Everything was amazing... we had the prawn cakes, peppercorn steak (so juicy and full of flavor!), and the heavenly sticky toffee pudding for dessert. I think this location is even more beautiful than the vintage park one. 5++++ stars!
