Reviewed December 25, 2011

Visited with my husband in early December 2011. Small restaurant and every table was full....great food and good Middle Eastern flavors. Highly recommend for a change of pace.

“Good, basic fare”
Reviewed December 22, 2011

This is intended for the small Petra's, not the larger one up the steep steps. My husband and I often have lunch there when we go to Itaewon. It's basic, but good.

“Bad service but good food”
Reviewed November 2, 2011

I'm a regular there. Actually, I W until recenly. The food is great and they have the best falafel I've ever had, but the owner wouldn't honor the "bring your ID on your birthday for a free meal" policy that his website touts when I went there on my birthday, claiming that the information was outdated. That may be true but he should have at least honored the policy that night since he failed to update the site. Maybe they've gotten too successful and ungrateful for their customers. Also, their music is always too loud and distracting!

“Lipsmackingly delicious food :-)”
Reviewed October 30, 2011

The best meal we had in Seoul was @ Petra Palace, Itaewon.

The service was polite & courteous.

The restaurant has a nice cozy feel to it. We sat outdoors overlooking the main street.

Both the strips of chicken & the kebabs were very well cooked. The fresh herbs further enhanced the flavour of both the dishes.

The hummus was delicious!!

“Great place for Middle Eastern food”
Reviewed June 13, 2011

We are regulars at this restaurant. It's a good place to eat if you're craving for something other than Korean food or pasta. The quality of their food is always good - service is average: nothing to complain about most of the time. We always get the falafels and the sultan lamb - more than enough for two hungry people. Tip: try to avoid the sofa seats - they're really high compared to the table and you'll get a backache from hunching over your food.
