Houston Press's Description
Punchy Middle Eastern food comes in a friendly mom-and-pop package at this tiny Galleria-area storefront. Spry standards (baba ghanoush, hummus) are augmented by unusual specialties: lemony lima bean salad, haunting vegetable stews (try the okra), minty fatoush salad tossed with pita croutons. Cafe Lili's deftly marinated chicken kebabs and baby cups of cardamom coffee are guaranteed mood elevators.
Tips from foursquare
Very Authentic. Love that the food isn't overloaded with Tahini.
Okra Beef Stew...I gotta have another one!
Get the moujadra... hmm hmm good...
You can't go wrong with anything on the (authentic) menu. The falafel sandwich for lunch is great. Wonderful folks here.
