We went to Niko Niko on our visit to Houston last week. Everything I saw said that this was the place to experience the best in Greek cuisine and for the most part it lived up to the hype. Location is near Rice University, in a quaint neighborhood that offers much to explore. I would love a week to try all of the restaurants near by. Niko Niko is an experience in itself. It's not a place you're going to come, eat, and be out in 30 minutes. First off, parking is a nightmare. It's a small plot of land, and lots of people, like you, want to try this place. Have patience and bring love, because you'll need both to keep a smile on your face as you find a place to park the vehicle. The restaurant is all self-service, so you're going to order at the counter. Anticipate a 15 minute wait, but it's perfect timing while you go over the extensive menu. The biggest downside is that the self-serve drink station is immediately to the right of the order line. This requires lots of jockying as you have guests leaving the restaurant to your left, and others trying to fill their drinks to your right. Traffic flow has no other option in this small space. Their doing the best that they can without building a new place. The line moves quickly in peak hours. Those taking your order are friendly and understand that this process is not the best experience of your day, but the food will surely win you over. After taking your order, you will receive a pager and now it's time to find a seat. Keep in mind that there is additional seating all the way in the back in the "patio room". Food came out in about 10 minutes. I don't know how they keep track of all the food at the window, but they have it mastered. It was like Air Traffic Control at LaGuardia Airport. Food was delicious. I ordered a Gyro sandwhich and there was more meat in it than I've ever seen in a Gyro. Bravo for not being cheap with the meat. We also ordered a side of Dolmaths, and Cabbage Rolls. I couldn't believe how "on-spot" the cabbage rolls were. They tasted just like my Chech grandmother used to make. For just over $1/ea, you've got to sample these. This place is popular for a reason - great food. You won't regret taking the time to visit, but be sure to bring your credit card - it's not cheap. For two adults and two 10-year old boys, our final total came to over $55 (and we didn't have left overs). At this price, we could have eaten anywhere in town for lunch and not fought with the crowds, or had to serve ourselves. That takes nothing away from the food, I just don't think we'll be back for a while.

I'm not sure what's up with all these- less than 5 star- reviews. This place is AWESOME. I've been coming here since 1997 before they expanded and the food is always consistent and really tasty! I recommend the spanakopita and get the extra yogurt sauce for dipping. Seriously, everything is good.

Best Greek food in town? Likely. They are pricy but from all of my experiences, worth every dollar.

My kind of comfort food. I don't go often so I always get the same thing, the gyro sandwich or plate. Great place to pig out. Don't get the boiled potatoes or rice. They are pretty bland and boring. The fries, however, are awesome!

had a great experience here. it was crowded, as it always seems to be, but the staff still went out of their way to be nice and helpful. and, most importantly, the food was good as well!

The popularity of this place is mysterious. I live in the neighborhood and I see the place always busy. The place looks battered and unclean with a homely decor; the lines are long and unwieldy, and the utensils are shabby. Most of all, the food is entirely mediocre: unseasoned shawarma, very soggy fries and watery sauces. We had to wait 40 minutes for a simple chicken kabob which came wrapped in foil which made it soggy and watery.
