I get takeout from here often and it’s always fast and friendly service! The gyros and shawarma lunch combos are my favorite.
Love this place . The best Greek place in the area . Love their Greek salad and gyros.
Best Mediterranean food in Houston! This is an independently owned restaurant with amazing service! Wael is passionate about his food and his staff is on point!

Really good food. The owner was friendly and staff was polite and professional. Definitely recommended!!
We just left here. I had lamb/beef kebabs, kid had greek salad and chicken, wife had spinach pie. Food is perfect. Comfortable environment. Staff and owner very nice. We are planning to make this our regular goto spot when we eat out from now on. Thank you. More...
Excellent vegetarian and vegan options! Make sure to ask before you order.
Super fresh ingredients!
Went there for my birthday and had the sample plate which was good. Honestly next time its Spanakopita all the way with their Greek salad
Kabobs were fantastic. Spanakopita was excellent! Myself, Wife and grandchild loved it.
It is clean with a family environment. Great food, nice selection of wine and beer. We spend some Friday nights there to let the week unwind behind us. Go there, get hummus with spicy awarmha, and check my spelling More...

Regulars for many year, this is our go-to for comfort food. The halloumi cheese appetizer- yuuum! Schwarma hummus appetizer-yummm! 3 cheese eggplant, stuffed chicken breast lamb, all good choices. Limited, but the right selection of beer, and several wine offerings. More...
Wael is one of the best Mediterranean/ Lebanese restaurants in the area. Food is very authentic. Great atmosphere and environment. I like to enjoy my lunch with Turkish coffee. Staff and owner are very friendly. More...
This place makes your food to order it's an awesome restaurant and you can try beers from Russia which was a plus too me
Excellent service and excellent food
Good place, rapid food but with the Mediterranean flavor
Delicious food and fast service
The service was great. Gavin was a great waiter.
The most delicious food in town, really recommend the shawarma and humus
Great place for delicious mediterranean food. I like it here, excellent food & service. Staff treated us so kindly. Feels like a cafe in Phoenix that I enjoyed visiting.
Love the food here, I have tried many of the different plates with each of them as delicious as the other. The kabobs and skewers are so flavorful and tender. I particularly like the Spanakopita and the grilled vegetables are out of sight. And do try the crispy fries...yummy. The staff are always helpful with navigating the menu. More...
Always great food and great service!
Nice place with excellent food
My top scene for mediterranean food. i like it here, excellent food & service. the bill was fair.
Eclectic and fun establishment with great food
Excellent food, great service, and a hospitable atmosphere. Owner personally checked on us. Great wine list and if you like beer, try the Almaza. It's a Lebanese pilsner that is absolutely delicious. Two words....Baklava Cheesecake. More...
Great food and great service.
This is the BEST Lebanese food in Houston. I have been to several restaurants and they do not have authentic flavors in the foods from Lebanon that I grew up on. One trip here and I keep coming back! Lebanese food is my favorite & I tend to be a critic. This is like being a child again in my grandmother's kitchen. I love the Koosa which you have to catch on the daily specials and the Lamb Shank and noodles. When these aren't on the daily specials I lean more towards the Kibbe and dolmas as a meal even though they are appetizers. I have tried several items on the menu and will say I like them all! The service has always been great and the owner always takes time to interact with his customers which gives it more of a personal feel. I prefer mom and pop restaurants because of the personal feel instead of the large chain restaurants. I feel like a part of the family when I go there. So it's a win win! I highly recommend Wael's. More...
Great, place to grab some lunch
Great place for tasty mediterranean food. nice place to relax, people watch, eat good, etc. the service here is outstanding. prices were good for how much you get. More...
Great middle eastern Mediterranean. I am more of a fan of Italian and Greek Mediterranean.
Great place though. Very tasty and not a long wait.
Excellent food, good atmosphere, good service, this place is my best Mediterranean restaurant in Houston, Wael’s food is the best, cannot compare it to any other food, highly recommended.Love Wael’s
Good food, especially the spanakopita! There's also a good selection of beer and wine. Good service as well.
Fresh and delicious food. The staff was sweet and attentive.
Enjoyed a delicious beer while Wael's prepared a family meal for carry out
What a hidden treasure l!!! Excellent food and even better service
Pretty good place !! The waitress was nice and friendly ! Good food too !
Just met the owner up in Houston and Waeel was super nice. He took his time to laugh and joke with us as we both order pastries from Suzies Pastries on Richmond. He made several great wonderful recommendations. Thank you Waeel! More...
chicken shawarma was unquestionably delicious. A must try place of you live Mediterranean food!!
Been coming here for years with my husband and i love it! The staff is attentive and very charismatic. The food is consistently yummy as well and the food gets out quick.
This place easily has the best Mediterranean food in the clear lake area. I recommend the Gyros and the half beef half chicken shawarma. Ask for Karim, he always has great recommendations for new customers. More...
Great food and welcoming service!
Wael's is easily my favorite Mediterranean place in Clear Lake. I love the shawarma platter and the shrimp and crab wrap. Karim is my favorite server. He always takes really good care of his guests. I sometimes see coupons for the restaurant on the back of HEB receipts and NASA employees get 10% off. More...
Took my granddaughter there for her birthday. First time for Mediterranean cuisine for both of us. Food was tasty and staff was very pleasant and accommodating.
Found this after our family visit to the Johnson Space Center. What great food and great service.
My favorite restaurant!
Variety of kebobs. Fresh, grilled talapia dish. Healthy options.
Great food and best service!

Great Food and service
Last night we wanted Mediterranean so we skipped our standard place and tried Waels. So glad we did!! Its Lebanese, as opposed to Greek or Egyptian, so the spices are a bit different but holy hummus it was tastey!!! I had the beef and chicken shawarma with salad. Both were outstanding but that oregano in the dressing made the salad so yummy I wanted to lick the bowl! Hubs had the gyro plate which he loved, brother had the veggie platter, which we all ended up eating off of, and we split two appetizers of tzatziki and the grilled cheese bread. It was all fantastic! We could not stop eating even though we were all full! Then we had the baklava for desert and thought we would explode! The owner was there, working away in the kitchen, but made it a point to stop from time to time to come say hi to his guests. The staff were amazing and our glasses were never more than half empty and they did an outstanding job! If you are looking for a great meal with great service, given this place a try. More...
Amazing service! We decided to try something new, and glad we did! The food was fresh, very flavorful, and priced right! I would definitely dine here again and again !! 5 star all the way! More...
Good food at reasonable prices along with fast service.
Having been weekly patrons of this restaurant for several years, thought it was time to leave following review, while trying not to repeat what others have written. All preceding reviews were read in-earnest and those reviews that are less than 5-star are hard to understand only. Having visited during both weekday and weekends we have never experienced anything less than exemplary service and top quality of our prepared meals. It will be a huge challenge to locate another restaurant in Houston area that provides such quality and quantity of food at the cost. We have tried (almost) the entire menu...never anything less than the most fresh ingredients...this is extremely difficult to accomplish with any consistency, and somehow this kind of magic is always performed here. Anyone who considers themselves to have a "sensitive stomach" will be delighted to take their meal from this establishment. Some patrons will seek value simply with obtaining a delicious and satisfying meal, and there will be no disappointments. Those patrons who, alternatively, elect to take time to savour the cuisine will be nothing short to surprised to find seasonings and spices that other area restaurants will find cost-prohibitive to present to the customer. Those who are familiar with the use of saffron will experience a rare treat. We anticipate that this establishment may, at some future date, relocate to a more trendy area of Houston, but, at least for the moment, we will take full advantage of it being in the Clear Lake area. During weekday business lunch period, expect a crowd but there always is the option to take-away. As others have written, a rare and otherwise unanticipated gem of a restaurant. More...
I have been coming here to eat since 2008. This is the one of best Mediterranean food in Houston area. The food is delicious and the portions are generous.
Good fresh ingredients & friendly service
Samantha Rae Krebsbach
The gyros are great, and their bread is really good, but their hummus is a little bland for me.
Authentic Mediterranean cuisine without a big price tag.
Great food. Much better than the other Mediterranean restaurant across the street.
Service was great food even better
This is a great little Mediterranean restaurant. Food is great and so is the service. Everyone was friendly even the owner!!! Must try

Great service, but food is just alright.
Good food and service
David Bashar Ellis
The food was ok. Nothing special. From the pictures here, I got the impression that the bread was made fresh, but it was not. The pieces are a bit higher than average. The staff is very very kind and helpful. More...
Wow!!! The food was fantastic and the service is top grade!!! We will be back soon. My new favorite place. Zaheera was so nice and service was superb. Thank you all!!!
Stopped by for lunch with a friend,it wasn't too crowded but we stopped by at an odd time. This place is in a fairly unassuming strip mall next to a really good bubble tea place. Parking was easy and we were seated quickly. Great service! The food was awesome... We shared some baba ganoush and pita and then she had a salad and I had a gyro. They served me hot tea too. I'm glad she found this place! Very good! More...
Good food, Good service, in and out lunch, family friendly all around great experience
We LOVE Wael's Mediterranean restaurant. Fried Cauliflower is awesome as is the Beef Shwarma!

This has top be one of my favorite places to eat. Great food!
The veggie sampler is a great taste of the foreign dining options Houston has to offer
Excellent food and consistent high quality of service.
We took our mother here for her birthday and made reservations ahead of time for a large group. They were very accommodating and the service was amazing. Evan took his time taking our orders, putting them on separate tickets, and keeping everyone at the table happy. The food was great and reasonably priced. Everyone had smiles on their faces and Evan even took a picture of our whole group which made our Mom very happy. I would definitely recommend this place to all. Thank you for a wonderful experience! More...
Been going here for over a decade! Best hummus and fried cauliflower in Clear Lake!
I’ve always been a huge fan of this place. The quality of food for the price is easily the best in town and it’s simple, but warm and friendly vibe really allow you to relax. We had the hummus to start and the slouvaki gyro on the lunch special plus a baklava and nut roll for desert. The owner/manager was nice enough to let us sample the baba ganouij and our server was on point; he even recommended the spicy potatoes as a side which were delicious! More...
Very plesent experience. Awesome food. Large servings and attentive staff. Will be returning.
Great food and service! Enjoyed the lunch Falafel Pita with Tabouli. Can't say enough great things about this cafe. Prices are fantastic.for the quality of food!!!
This is by far the best Mediterranean food in Houston, waels and his staff are very nice and professional. Excellent job, I will come back for more good food, chicken bow tie pasta was delicious, halloumi cheese, Lebanese wine excellent selections, definitely will be back.
Best Mediterranean I've had so far! The Spicy potatoes are pretty awesome.
I just ordered 2 chicken shawarma, the waiter asked me if I wanted the sandwiches Lebanese style Which it will come with garlic paste and fries inside the sandwich and cucumber pickles, and I said yes, just want to say:This is a real goodThis is a real Lebanese restaurant This is chicken shawarma And this is the best Lebanese food in the area...
One of a couple local Mediterranean joints and a staple of the local restaurants. Their gyros are great!
Waels is always a delicious experience. I love the Musaca and Lebanese style Shwarma. Waels makes a lot of the food and he's super nice and welcomes and questions.
Fantastic food and service! A real hidden gem in the clear lake area.
Love all their food
Good food, reasonable prices
Good food, a little pricy. The gyros are my favorite option
Nice little gem with cheap food that is great. Get the lamb gyro (pronounced your-oh) (sort of). Staff was friendly and playing with my friend's baby. Was nice for lunch on a Sunday.
Fresh hot food that is seasoned well. Great service too. One of my favorite places for lunch.
This is my go to dining out experience!I am very picky in terms of healthy and fresh food.To me this is the best restaurant in Houston.Sincerely Nisha Eckhoff
Excellent food! Try the grilled Halloum cheese! Average decor.
Delicious food, exceptional service, and fair prices. One of my favorite places in the area.
First time at Waels @ Bay Area Great service and Gyros are amazingly good.
Wael's is the best Mediterranean restaurant in the Houston area - bar none! The ingredients are so fresh and the atmosphere is very laid back. If you want an authentic, delicious experience, this is the place! More...
I've passed by this restaurant hundreds of times over the years, but never really paid any attention to it. It was only on my recent quest to find the best Mediterranean in Clear Lake that I decided to try Wael's. I honestly didn't expect much, but boy was I wrong! The service was fast and friendly and the restaurant clean. But even better than all that was the food. Oh man, thinking about the chicken shawarma wrap as I type is making me crave it again. The spicy potatoes that came with it were excellent as well. My boyfriend ordered the gyro plate, and the meat was deliciously seasoned. Maybe it's because the other places I've tried in the area turned out way below expectations, but to me, Wael's is the best Mediterranean I've had in a while. More...
One of my favorite lunch spots in the area. I always leave full and happy. Very good food and service.
Very good lamb gyros. Don't forget Baklava for dessert.
The best Gyros in Clear Lake. All the food is great. The only negative is the parking.
One of the best Mediterranean spots in Clear Lake. Food is fresh and well-seasoned. Falafel is light and crunchy, not oily at all. Love the fried cauliflower appetizer. More...
