We went to dinner for the first time here and the food was very good. We started with the traditional hummus which was excellent. We all ordered entrees which included a salad or soup. The lentil soup was very good. Three of us had the shawarma and one had the ouzi and one the prawns. All of the food was... More

Very casual, friendly staff. Accommodating with slight menu changes. Deliciously seasoned chicken dishes as well as vegetarian options. Reasonably priced wine list. Definitely intending to return upon return to Seattle.

The food here was so flavorful! We had an amazing experience; service was good and food was simply delicious! We were a group of 5 visiting Seattle from NY, MN & TX and hands down we all agreed that we've not had such flavorful Mediterranean food anywhere else.

I grew up in the middle east and I had as close to authentic as I have ever had. Yummy! The shawarmas, the tamarind drink, the home made baklava (don't buy the other one) were all excellent.

We went for a birthday celebration on a Saturday evening. I had the garlic chicken dish, which was huge, and amazingly delicious. The restaurant is quite small, so there is often a wait to be seated. We called ahead to make reservations so we were seated within a few minutes.

I just had dinner there tonight. Everything I had was excellent -- quite possibly the best Middle Eastern food I've had in a long time. I tried the Red Lentil soup, house salad, Mezze Platter, Ouzi, Beef Schwarma. Everything was perfectly cooked and very tasty. I'll definitely come again if I can whenever I'm in Seattle.

We were looking for a Greek restaurant and the search turned up Petra. We were not disappointed. The menu was varied with Mediterranean specialities. Prices were reasonable. Restaurant was busy with a lot of ethnic patrons, which to me says "this place must be good". Service was excellent and food was good and tasty. Would highly recommend.

Being from an average town in Wisconsin, we don't have much access to authentic foreign foods. We decided to try Petra based on other reviews. The sampler platter provided us with a good introduction to Greek food. I couldn't believe how good real hummus tastes. Spiced chicken was recommended by our server and now all other chicken dishes pale in... More

Shwarma, I am so in love with you! Petra's Shwarma was probably the best I have ever tasted. It was so incredible, I had to buy their spices to try my hand at recreating when i got home. It doesn't even come close but at about 900 miles away- beggars can't be choosers! Until next summer.....
