Go for the food, stay for the conversation with Mohammed. He is the delightful owner and chef. We had Baba Ganoush (creamy roasted eggplant with garlic) for an appetizer. I had the Petra Special Platter with lamb and my wife had a salad with chicken. Both servings were more than we could eat. The real treat was talking with Mohammed... More

WOW! Food was amazing! Hot, flavorful, and nice portions! Falafel were tasty, and crunchy on the outside, hot and fluffy on the inside, the way they should be! The owner was very friendly and treated me to Babaghanouje while I waited for my order, which was less than a 15 min wait! It was all so delicious and piping hot.... More

My son loves shawarma so we tried this place for the first time. The owner (?) greeted us warmly but he was busy operating the place all by himself. The place is very small and there were a lot of people for the space so we decided to take out our food. The place was very casual and far from... More

Loved the hummus! So creamy and flavorful served with warm pita. Took our sandwiches to go, but even the next day the chicken and lamb pita sandwich was delicious. It's sort of a dive place especially with about five of the owner's friends hanging out!

Both my husband and I, plus our granddaughter love to have lunch here. It is very small, but has a very friendly owner and his helper is very nice also. The food is consistently good. Only three tables and six stools at the counter, so take out is always an option.

My wife and I have both been to the Middle East and this small cafe truly captured the comfortable feel, flavors and the best of the hospitality of the region. It is a very small family run restaurant that is far from fancy, but was very similar to several restaurants we enjoyed in the Middle East. One of the two... More

I have been to Petra too many times to count and every time I have been pleased with it all-- food, service, and friendly atmosphere. I feel welcome and like part of a big family. I'd go more often if I could. Do not miss the beef/lamb schwarma--- yummy. Brothers Mohammed and Sam make the place more than just a... More
