Thoughts on Batanga?

Hello all! Does anyone have thoughts on this place? I don't live in Houston, (NJ) but my sister and family live in Houston. I always send her gift card to restaurants and was looking at this menu. It looks pretty good, but as we all know, menus can be deceiving!! lol

Anyway, any thoughts or should I look for another place?

I also thought about Poscol? What do you think?

Any help would be GREAT as I have not been in Houston for over 12 years!! She does not like sushi or Chinese. Her favorite Mexican is Ninfa's..which I have sent her cards their well as to the Pappas restaurants, too! (She loves Greek food!!


Thanks so much!!!

  1. This is too funny! I am from NJ and will be in Houston soon. I am planning on visiting both of those restaurants when I am there. I can report back afterwards -- although it won't be for a couple of weeks.

    1. I've been to Poscol, but not Batanga. Poscol is excellent, and would be my pick. My impression is that Batanga is good, but from what I hear, may be a little more uneven. I don't think you would really be going wrong with either, though.

        1. Batanga's food is very good...however, you must know that it is a bar with live music...the band is good but cannot really sit inside and have a conversation...we tried outside (in the Spring) and it was better....the food is what makes us go back...
