“Great value magical place!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 11, 2012 via mobile

We went on a Sunday evening with great expectations, and they were met in every respect. The atmosphere was charming, the food very good, and the entertainment outside was lively and delightful. An unbelievable value when you consider the total experience. Pharra obviously loves her business pursuit and her mission in life. Service was appropriately laid back and relaxed, but attentive. The BYOB aspect allows for serious wine drinking at retail prices.

“Exotic dining with a flair of bellydancing!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 12, 2012

We went to Phara's with our son who lives in Austin. We dined outside on wonderful food and were entertained by a beautiful and talented bellydancer while we ate. It is a bring your own wine establishment which we loved. The owner came by and spoke with us which added a nice touch!

“Great Food and Service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 9, 2011

Phara's is an unusual restaurant that is easy to find. They have inside seating as well as covered and uncovered outdoor seating. The owners and the staff are very friendly and the service is fantastic. The customers were very responsive and loved the entertainment. The middle eastern food served at Pharah's is excellent - very tasty - not to mention a great value. They do not serve alcohol, but you can bring your own wine and beer - the corkage fee is only $3 per person - compared to $20 - $30 at locations that are nowhere near as good. If I am stopping in Austin anywhere near dinner time, I am definitely headed back to Phara's.

The food is delicious! The belly dancing is about average. BYOB - but the individual cork fee is higher than I'd expect it to be.
