The servers were cordial and they served the food quick. Tried Sharma and Kabab platter. Both were good.

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 Petra. Hummus seem fresh and the falafels are on point. Everything else our party ordered... More

We enjoy Mediterranean and middle eastern food. If you do then you will be happy here. I had the gyro lunch plate and wife had the chicken schwarma lunch plate. The salad and humas was great. The meal was vary good. Loved the rice. The coffee was great. Get a cup with your meal or your desert

It was so much better than we expected. The waiter suggested the chicken and gyro plate, me and my boyfriend were full from sharing one plate. We only spent $28. Try to the tiramisu desert it is velvet sugar. We will go again!

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
