I ordered humus and a chicken shawarma salad. I enjoyed both. The salad had a very generous amount of chicken and the greens were nice and crisp. The interior of this place has gone downhill since my first visit two years ago, but the food was good. I'll be back!

I love Petra. Oh my gosh, you have to try every appetizer and make sure to get a dessert. It's super authentic with great choices and variety on the menu. I've been multiple times, and try something different every time, never being disappointed. The atmosphere is super chill, and the staff is very friendly.

Petra is a unique Mediterranean cafe in Hattiesburg that I like to come to when I'm in the mood for something different. The service is helpful and friendly and their chicken, lamb and gyros are great. I highly recommend it.

Eaten three times in the last month. Food is consistent and good. I always get grape leaves and hummus plate as an appetizer. The yogurt sauce in the gyro is delicious and is reasonably priced for the size. The staff are very friendly. I recommend trying the hot tea. A variety of herbs are added to the large tea pot...

I spent last summer in Amman, where I had some great ME food. This came very close! We ordered the kafta and the kebabs which were great, as were the sides. We had a generous portion of flatbread provided with the meal too. Service was excellent and friendly. They also have hookahs if you want to get your smoke on.... More

Tonight our family went to the Petra Cafe for dinner. The servers were very kind and asked us numerous times during the meal if we needed anything and were happy with our food. I can't say enough good things about the food here, It was delicious. Hummus was homemade. Everything looked so good we couldn't decide what to order; we... More

I love this place but wife likes another med east restaurant better. This place is closer to the real thing than most state side. The hummas falafel and gyros are awesome. It is a little dated but for me that adds to the flavor. Wife is not as hard core as I and likes the Greek style a little better.... More

The food is pretty good, but slightly on the bland side for Mediterranean food. Service was okay but not great.

When dining at Petra, you will find consistently good food from the chicken shwarma to the hummus to the falafel. The plates come with a small salad, hummus and pita bread. This along with the main course is plenty of food for a hardy lunch. The chicken shwarma is my favorite with the chicken tender and moist and the spices... More
