    is the Greek heaven in the USA. Niko Niko has one of the best gyro that a hungry person can have. They are big! The prices are really good, and the staff is very sweet. This is the best bet in Houston

    When in Rome...Well this is Greek food but do what the Greek do and choose one of their many fantastic selections. I prefer the sampler plate so you don't miss out on anything they have to offer.

    Niko Niko's is a great Greek restaurant in Houston. There's something for everyone. It may, however, not be the best place for elders or people with trouble walking, since the line tends to be long.

    Roasted chicken w/ potatoes and Greek salad. The best part: dessert; Athenian mud pie tonight. Always busy. Expanded Greek wine selection. Have a glass waiting for order to go.

    Outdoor patio perfect for sunny days. Restaurant is super packed but they're pretty quick at taking your order and getting food out. I got the chicken and beef kabob plate and it was delicious.

    Hummus, didn't look or taste like hummus. Gyro was great! Honey balls as desert, freshly made, good also. Fast service, friendly staff.

    Get there early but def best Greek food in town. Fresh, not greasy. We get Greek salad and gyros usually but they have stuffed cabbage and peppers and a great dessert selection.

    I really like the food, but I honestly feel like this place is a bit "over-hyped" and overpriced. Overall, it's a good place to eat, the gyros are yummy and they serve "mythos" beer, which is nice!

    The plates are huge and the side dishes are also very generous. The souvlaki and kebabs are some of the popular dishes. The fries are a must, and the lentil soup is quite good, too.
  • ELS Language Centers
    Great people watching on a fun outdoor patio, but it’s small and usually crowded so you might try going in the early afternoon. They serve generous portions, so share! Meals $10 to $20.

    Roasted chicken is awesome. Greek wine is actually ok. Long lines; not enough parking even after expanding several times over the years. Skip the line, order to go; another w/in easy walking distance.

    I've been coming here for 20+ years, and have never been disappointed. Gyros are the best anywhere...and they also have an incredible Philly sandwich.

    Excellent gyros, but leave some room for dessert, esp. kataifi and loukoumades. Ask for freshly baked loukoumades, if possible; they are sinfully delicious!

    Been coming here for over 13 years. I miss the smaller ambience and personal service by Dimitri himself, but still hands down the best gyros I've ever had. Congrats on the new Market Square location!

    Greek food is on the menu at Niko's. Gyro's, falafel, souvlaki and more. Small salads start at $4.75. Try the Athenian mushroom burger for a mix of American and Greek flavor. Read more

    I'm usually suspect of veggie lasagne. It's often too watery... like the veggies are a soup. This, tried at the suggestion of one of the cooks, was awesome.

    Instead of having greasy french fries, order oven baked potatoes. They are delicious, made Greek-style, with wonderful lemony taste.

    FYI, the real Greek food is hidden under Eleni specials or favorites. Try em, but you'll probably need help to finish them.

    I'm not sure if they were having an off day, but the fries were soggy clearly only fried once though the seasoning would be great of crispy fries like these. Otherwise okay. A bit overpriced.
