Cafe Rakka has some of the best Mediterranean I've eaten. All the high reviews for their food are well deserved. My problem with Cafe Rakka is the 'service' I received yesterday when I arrived for lunch at 2:44. The posted hours on Google and on their own website say that lunch hours are until 3pm. However, when we had ordered... More

We went to lunch here today. We have lived in hendersonville for a few months and passed this place many times. I am so glad we went in! I ordered the Tandoori chicken&cheese sandwich. It was amazing!! My husband had the Shawermah and it was really good. We had the pistachio baklava for dessert and it had so much flavor.... More

Rakka's food is very reasonably priced for GREAT food. If you're looking for chain restaurant quality, don't go here. Chef only uses the best ingredients...and the food is mind-blowingly good. This has to be the best hummus on the planet. I eat here at least two days a week.

Atlanta relatives saw this on The Food Network and wanted to try it out. No disappointments Great food, many choices. Chicken or Beef Rajj worth a try.Each plate is more than enough for one person. Definitely try the Hummus. Only two drawbacks are 1) small and 2) that they close at precisely 3PM, so arrive in time to leisurely enjoy... More

New to the Nashville area my hubby and I decided to take a road trip to nearby Hendersonville. We used Tripadvisor to find this jewel of a restaurant. The food was unbelievable. We sat outside on the patio and conversed the entire time with medical staff from the local hospital who were regulars. We had good food and good conversation.... More

The food is fantastic !!! Everything is freshly made, the folks that work there are friendly. It doesn't have a huge dining room but there is additional dining outside.

This place is amazing. It is just a little hole in the wall, nothing fancy but the food is unbelievable! The best Hummas i have had! Very personable and friendly staff. They have a nice little patio for outdoor seating.

If you are looking for tasty and thoughtfully prepared Mediterranean food in a town that is better known for chain restaurants, this is your place. The hummus bar is an excellent value with several choices, the hot tea is flagrant and flavorful and there are options for both the vegetarians and meat eaters in the group. Family members recommend the... More

Took forever to get our food. The place is very small. Does not give you a feeling of cleanliness. The teas were awful. Overall I would not return and very pricey.
