It was suggested that I stop by here for yummy Mediterranean food and I must admit the food was very delicious. Eating area needs cleaning/freshening up,obvious owners put all their love and talents into the food.

. Wasn't expecting to find Mediterranean food in Tehachapi. Place was busy on a Saturday night. Good selection of middle eastern fare reasonably priced. The garlic fries will change your life and the baklava was pretty awesome too!

We usually order take-out, so not going to comment on the decor, although I will mention that it has both indoor seating and an outdoor patio. Portions can be really large - so purchase accordingly. Friendly staff, delicious food.. what more could you ask for?

We eat hear about once a month. The portions are large enough we eat 1/2 then save the other half for lunch then next day. We highly recommend this place.

Right in the middle of town with inside and sidewalk seating. They have a wonderful selection of Mediterranean and American. Abraham, the owner, is always happy to help you pick out something you might not be sure of and deliver a great meal to you. The smell alone when you walk in the door will assure you of what is...

Great food! I ate here twice during my visit to Tehachapi and I was impressed with the portions, quality and staff. Friendly, family- owned restaurant, who put a lot of love into their dishes. Highly recommend. Try the garlic fries!

A group of us went there for dinner. The food was rally fresh and well prepared. We all had something different and there were no complaints. The Hummus is really good. The family that runs it are very nice too.

The extremely casual, non-pretentious atmosphere of Petra is reminiscent of everyday restaurants around the western shores of the Mediterranean. Guests order at the front counter. Food is prepared by clearly hard-working staff in the open kitchen behind that counter and in plain sight of guests, and delivered to your table when ready. The interior is pretty small with, maybe, 10... More

I came through Tehachapi on my thru hike of the PCT. I seek out ethnic food whenever I can. This place was wonderful from the excellently flavored food to the generous owners who upon asking, gave us a sizable discount as a PCT hiker. It's a authentic family run operation. You can't go wrong! Highly recommend!

We get the chicken and beef kabobs with salad, pita, and hummus. It is very yummy...the family who runs its are very nice. The only reason I took one star off is that the restaurant's atmosphere is not very good. Other than that the food is great.
