This restaurant is hidden (we found it on accident while at FedEx/Kinkos) but well worth finding. The buffet is quite good and extensive. A great variety. We totally gorged ourselves.

Dimassi's buffet is a terrific assortment of Mediterranean style food, drinks, and desserts for about $13. They offer tons of vegetarian and vegan foods like hummus, several salads, stuffed grape leaves (dolmas), and great vegetable sides such as baby okra and garlic roasted cauliflower. There are also some tasty meat dishes including their fried chicken which is my favorite thing... More

If you want burnt food and rude staff then this is the place for you. They used to serve nice food but with the quality of food and service I received today I doubt that I'll be coming back here anytime soon....

Excellent Mediterranean/Middle Eastern good!..., the lamb is deliciously prepared. Wonderful assortment of salads. Kind of weak on the dessert choices, but by then you'll be stuffed anyway! Highly recommended when you are in the 'hood...

I have been going here for years. The food is always fresh and hot, and it's the only place that I can take my vegetarians friends and we can all eat happy. But for carnivores like me, the kafta, schwarma, and spiced chicken round out the plate in addition to a super sized buffet line featuring all of your mid-eastern... More

for this place to compete the owners need to improve the quality of their food. I will go back and see if they have acted on the suggestions I directly gave to the manager. Those who tried other buffets in Houston that are in the same category (Mediterranean) will easily see the difference between this buffet and the better ones... More

We found this restaurant one evening last year while staying in a hotel nearby. We needed a quick meal - something nutritious, not 'fast food' -and this place was perfect. It's an all-you-can-eat buffet (despite that, the place is quite elegant). The best part is you just walk right in, grab a plate, and start eating (getting a new plate... More

We go here every couple of months and usually take visitors. I really like the salads and a lot of the meat dishes are quite good. You have to ask for the gyro and they prepare it fresh for you - it isn't on the buffet. The breads and desserts are good.

When my husband and I are in The Woodlands at mealtime, we try to eat here. The restaurant has a fabulous Mediterranean buffet at a very economical price. This restaurant is part of a chain, but it is the best of the chain. Everything is always fresh and there are also lots of healthy options. We will continue to come... More
