Still Waiting on Niko NIko - Houston

The west Houston outpost of Niko Niko has been open now for about 6 weeks. I have been twice. I recommend you postpone any planned visit until the kinks are out.

Late food, poorly executed food, wrong orders, I’ve seen it all. Dry gyro meat, overcooked wings (at $1.50 PER SEGMENT!). The employees behind the counter actually look frantic and poorly trained. This is a known menu and system, they need to spend more time on training.

They open at 10 everyday and serve breakfast all day.

I’ve never been to any location other than the original, although I saw the one in Pearland at an HEB just off 288 and was tempted.

I wonder if they have these issues at all the satellite locations because they’ve stretched too thin or just don’t know how to train staff.
