This has become a local favorite. The best hummus bar this side of Heaven. The lamb is seasoned to perfect. Small but cozy space.

We had a family of eight that arrived at 6p.m.on a Saturday night. We decided to eat out on the patio since they mentioned a party reservation at 7p.m. for a party of 9. Since the rain was stopping we enjoyed the cool patio. We started with 2 plates of hummus an 1 plate of Baba Ghanoush. We ordered extra... More

We saw Cafe Rakka on DDD and said when in Nashville we would try it. Chef Rakka did not disappoint us, been there three times now, food is fresh and tasty. We even saw Ricky Scaggs there on the second visit, bonus!

We first saw this restaurant on the Food Network's "Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives" and decided that when we were in Nashville to see our friends, that we would try this place to eat at. Normally, the place is packed with a line out the door, but seeing that it was Easter weekend, we were able to get right in for... More

This is one of my boyfriend and my favorite restaurants in the Nashville area, and definitely our favorite in Hendersonville. You can't go wrong with anything you get. It's a little on the expensive side (~$20/plate) but the portion sizes are large and it's worth every penny. It has a small local restaurant feel and the staff is always very... More

We had a party of 5 and the bill was $112.00. The food was good but a little more than what I expected to pay. There was a lot of food to eat and the taste was very good, but the plates contained a lot of low cost items like salad and rice. They had fresh made cucumber lemon water... More

Have visited this restaurant twice and found the food to be very good. The fried shrimp po boy was delicious and my friend enjoyed the crawfish po boy. Reasonably priced. Service is a little slow so you can't be in a hurry. I am looking forward to trying other items on the menu.

The food at this cozy locale is fantastic. The lamb burgers, salads and hummus is second to none. You order at the counter and then seat yourself. The cucumber water is refreshing and recommended.

Hands down our favorite restaurant! Love everything on the menu, the rice pudding is one of my all time favorite things, along with the red tea. Love the fact he will make anything as spicy as you can handle, and will even add a little ghost pepper. The chicken or lamb yakney (sp?) is absolutely incredible! Always a great experience!
