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...

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...

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.

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...

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...

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...

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...

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!

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...

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...
