Rakka is amazing, I've been there dozens of times and it's if not the best one of the best restaurants in the Hendersonville area. It is great for lunch and dinner, the atmosphere is Arabian and super cool, wouldn't recommend for large parties though because...More

Yes, this is the real deal! It's quaint: Order at the counter and it's brought to the table. I don't believe they serve alcohol. I had a 'lamb-burger' that was really great! Just a half dozen or so small tables, but a great place to...More

I love the hummus!! Hummus with roasted onion is like heaven. Falafel Arabi is divine. High quality foods with only the freshest ingredients. You will not be disappointed!

This is the restaurant for you when you want something other than chain restaurant food and are looking for fresh, authentic food! Seating is limited, so try to visit other than the main busy time. Or, place an order to go!

Excellent dinner with my father-in-law. A bit quirky that for such a nice restaurant that you had to order at the counter. I had the Yahkety (spelling?) lamb that was excellent. I also had a side of hummus that was awesome. I would go back...More

Oh my goodness. The food is prepared fresh each order. Always get the home made hummus. Love the portabella mushroom sandwich. The chicken salad is to die for. Make sure you get the red tea.
