My wife raves about this place! Stopped in to try after work and was impressed! Lamb kabobs with rice pilaf and grilled veggie. Excellent seasoning, taste, and texture!

There were only two Falafels left, my husband heard one of the employees ask if she should use those, the owner told her,"No, we'll make some more". How wonderful that a restaurant cares more about quality than the bottom line. Dogmas was great!! Bread was right out of the oven

Our family has long been fans of Hovan Gourmet Mediterranean Restaurant on Park Street at Five Points. We may have to drive a few miles, but we don't mind at all. The staff are friendly and efficient, the food is awesome and fresh. There is NO BETTER HUMMUS anywhere! Each of us have our favorite dishes. Mine is the lamb... More

We stopped at Hovan for a late light lunch and were pleased by the freshness of the food. The Baba Ganoush and Hummus were excellent. The prices incredibly reasonable. The atmosphere is meh but one can dine outside on a patio under the oaks. This is a great stop for a quick and light lunch and for cheap eats.

My office is a block away, but today was the first time I tried Hovan. It won't be the last! The gyro was super fresh and the flavor wad just right. The combo comes with 2 sides and the selections are very good. Inside seating provides middle eastern music and a clean environment.

I've eaten here several times and the quality of the food is top notch. Service is good. They serve the best falafel rider and the sides (hummus, tabouleh, Greek salads, baba ghanoush) are all delicious. I always eat here when I'm at Five Points.

First time here and we were not disappointed. The food was delicious - we left well satisfied. The service was great. The place is nothing fancy but is very clean and casual, and located in a nice neighborhood. They also have a good outside dining area. I would definitely return for their Mediterranean food.

We've been coming here for a long time but hadn't been in for a couple years. They still have the best Baba Ganoush in Jax. Their falafel is wonderful too but if you like meat, get the gyro. Finish everything off with a baklava, they have pistachio or walnut and both are full of honey goodness. The lunch menu is... More
