Don't Judge the Food by the Building

From the outside, the restaurant doesn't say much. But the food is excellent. Greek salad huge and fresh with lots of cheese, Shawarma very good with a unique sauce. Good selection of beers. Falafel made just like I like 'em: crisp on the outside and moist on the inside. Order at the desk and they... read more

The food here is delicious and seems authentic. The only negative is that the restaurant occasionally gets a bit smoky. Ventilation could definitely be improved.

My husband and I usually order the shwerma. The ingredients are fresh, the chicken and beef are grilled. My granddaughter and daughter both love the garlic fries. The ambience is basic, portions are generous.

The owner is Lebanese and brings all the tasty dished from the middle east to a full and satisfying meal. Lots of kebab dishes, lavash wraps, Mediterranean salads, lamb dishes, etc. along with a selection of beer, soft drinks, etc. All prepared right in front of you in a small open kitchen. Very reasonable prices, limited outdoor seating, small but... More

Very good Mediterranean food for OK price. Open kitchen is in the middle, a tables scattered around. Not fancy at all, basic ethnic decor, but delicious food!

Whenever possible we prefer to support local establishments and when we heard this was such a place, we wanted to give it a try. This is a place where you order at the cash register, pay, and then wait. We had to wait about a half an hour for our dinner because mother was not there when we came in.... More

Do come here if you want a tasty, but unremarkable, meal. Don't come here if you want a pleasant setting with ambience. The restaurant is basic--you order at the counter and they bring the food to you. The plates are plastic as are the utensils. While I don't mind plastic utensils, the fork was not strong enough to be functional... More

We've been fans of Middle Eastern food for more than 40 years, and have eaten our way through Greece (twice) and Turkey. Petra ranks with the best we've had anywhere. The babagannouj and dolmas were indeed the very best. The foul and muhammara were new to us, and both were excellent. We took spanikopita and baklava back to our motel... More

This is truly a hidden gem in Tehachapi. The Mediterranean food is really good. A great selection on the menu. It does get busy so plan ahead.
