    My first time at Petra this past weekend and I can't wait to go back. The red lentil soup was fantastic. I had the Taste of Africa and the flavors were fabulous. The service was great, too.

    Order the Mezza Tray because all the mediterranean apps are great. Entrees are super flavorful too! Go on Saturdays at 7:30pm and be treated to live belly dancing!

    Greek salad was fantastic! Garlic lemon chicken is super garlicky so not good date food but still good food. I recommend asking for the sauce on the side so you can adjust the garlic.

    Great food - we loved the pita bread (oh so soft) and hummus. Salad/falafel is great. red lentil soup and veg sheesh kabob not so much.. Definitely visiting again.

    Shish Tawook (lemon garlic chicken) spices are heavenly, but the chicken can be a little dry: ask them not to overcook it.

    Cauliflower rocks. Greek salad is amazing. Everything was actually damn good. Service was a slow and awkward though.

    Service was polite, but slow and inattentive. Bring a water bottle because the food is nice and garlicky but they don't come around and refill your water much. Next time I'll get my food to go.

    Avoid the falafel at all costs... Unless mushy bread balls painted brown and left to get soggy are your thing.
