Order their baba ghanouj, which is like hummus only made with egg plant. Their grape leaves are excellent as well. The manager is friendly and competent. I like to eat at Petra on special occasions.

I have eaten Gyros and Kababs on three continents. I was quite surprised when my brother took us to a place in Hattiesburg in an older, out-of-the-way shopping center. Excellent food. You won't be disappointed about any of it.

Superb fish entrees. My wife had the shawarma and it was fantastic. The service by Emad was fantastic. We loved interacting with some of the other customers. Great baklava too. The prices are very reasonable.

The grilled shrimp salad is very, very good. Homemade dressing is to die for. Their hummus is very smooth and delicious. Highly recommend this restaurant!

Sorry but "Grilled Chicken" is not the same thing as Chicken Shawarma. Not even close. If you've ever had authentic Lebanese or even the knock off Palestinian version like Albasha in Baton Rouge (which is quite good) you're gonna be disappointed here.

Anyone who lives in the deep south knows just how hard it is to get a decent vegetarian meal. No, Iceberg lettuce is not one! Thank goodness for the few ethnic places that have popped up and have some staying power. A Hattiesburg stapel is...More

May 18, 2018 we relocated from a shopping center to a stand along building on Hwy 49 directly across from Forrest General Hospital. The new building provides more seating and parking. Our menu is centered around recipes from Jordanian and Greek relatives. Everything is made is fresh with organic ingredients.
