My wife and I discovered this gem in Jackson on a followup visit after eye surgery. Located downtown a short ride from the hospital. I was concerned when we went in, no one else was there! But it was by far the best Greek food I have ever had! The Lebanease tea was terrific. The hummus was the best I've... More

We left our hotel about 7:00 looking for some dinner. We chose the Petra Café, a Middle Eastern place about three miles from our hotel. The outside of the place looked okay - but was certainly not anything special. The inside was marginally better. If I had not read good reviews, we may have walked out after seeing that we... More

I am disappointed that you were not able to rave about your meal as the majority of our customers do. We take great pride in preparing all of our meals from the heart with the best cuts of meat, fresh organic ingredients and authentic imported spices. As the owner, I am at the restaurant practically all of the time and... More

I was somewhat skeptical the first time I visited as there were not a whole lot of people there. Since then I have been numerous times as the food is good and the staff is friendly.

Loved the food. Can't wait to go back . Atmosphere good, service good. What more could you want? Hummus was definitely homemade and well seasoned. Hookah was a new fun experience.

The lamb was very good and so was the chicken and humus. We ordered the Lebanese ice tea, but we got a lemonade drink, no pine nuts. Could have been a mixup. It wasn't bad, but wasn't what we ordered. Also the stuffed grape leaves were stuffed mainly with air, very little filling. I wish they had just said they... More

I have known the owner for years since he started his first restaurant in Ridgeland in 2007. The food is authentic Mediterranean and the spice is "just right". The service is spotty at times, but I highly recommend the lunch buffet!

Great mediterranean food, cool patio! Love the hummus/salad/dip all-you-can-eat buffet area with tabouli and sides. Great touch. Will definitely go again!
