Food was good. the salad was VERY fresh and good. The chicken dish was good, not great though. Good portions. It took a long time to get the food, so don't go if you are in a hurry. Seems to be a big carry out business,, so maybe that slows down the service for the sit down folks.

This is one of our favorites. The food is always excellent - from the salads to the lunch platters to the hot dinners plates. The bread and humus are out of this world -- this our go to place. They are always busy so time your arrival accordingly.

When it takes a full 30 minutes to get your order it really doesn't matter if it tastes any good or not. Seriously, a true 30 min to get two simple lunch menu items. Sad.

Excellent humas and a great variety. The lamb was succulent. I wish I saved room for desert-wonderful meal! I will certainly go again and try something different.

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.
