This place is great. The owner is very visible when you are dining, they have a wonderful patio, and its BYOB and BYOWine. The portions are big for the price, and you can even get a hooka brought to your table!

As always, I went to the TripAdvisor web page, this time looking for recommendations for a good Greek Restaurant in Austin as my daughter, my wife and I, all love Souvlakis. After a 20 minute drive, we reach there to find out that it is an Arabian (Lebanese) restaurant and not Greek. Souvlaki is not even on the menu !!... More

I visit Phara's every time I visit my son. It is our favorite Meditteranean food place in Austin. It has your typical, quirky, Austin ambience with indoor & outdoor seating. Phara, the owner, belly dances on certain nights. The best part is the food - my favorite is Chicken La Zees and my son loves the Shwarma and Tabbouleh. The... More

My wife and I stopped here after a show at the Austin City Theatre (always a great time) to have some greek/med style food. The restuarant has a ton of character and I recommend getting a patio seat. The service was quick and the food was great and not too pricey. The place is great for groups of friends out... More

Phara's is awesome. It is a HUGE outdoor entertainment complex. It is best to go at night because the whole outside is aglow with party lights & you'll get to participate in the bellydancing show. The "LAMB LAZEEZ" is SPECTACULAR! This is a great place to go on a date, but even better to go with a group of friends.... More

The food is good but the atmosphere is great. Ask for a patio seat but expect to wait for your food and drink as the service is not so great. However, it's a really good place to kick back with friends, watch the belly dancers and chill. It's BYOB only so don't forget your cooler!

We went on a Sunday evening with great expectations, and they were met in every respect. The atmosphere was charming, the food very good, and the entertainment outside was lively and delightful. An unbelievable value when you consider the total experience. Pharra obviously loves her business pursuit and her mission in life. Service was appropriately laid back and relaxed, but... More

We went to Phara's with our son who lives in Austin. We dined outside on wonderful food and were entertained by a beautiful and talented bellydancer while we ate. It is a bring your own wine establishment which we loved. The owner came by and spoke with us which added a nice touch!

Phara's is an unusual restaurant that is easy to find. They have inside seating as well as covered and uncovered outdoor seating. The owners and the staff are very friendly and the service is fantastic. The customers were very responsive and loved the entertainment. The middle eastern food served at Pharah's is excellent - very tasty - not to mention... More

The food is delicious! The belly dancing is about average. BYOB - but the individual cork fee is higher than I'd expect it to be.
