My son and I stopped in for lunch. He just returned from travel abroad and thought the food was authentic. I had the Tandoori chicken and cheese. It was excellent with just the right amount of heat

We drove from NC to Nashville for the long weekend and decided to venture out and about looking for a good place to eat. Rakka's is a small eating place with not 1000 items on the menu to confuse you but, what it has to offer will leave you wanting for more. We tried almost everything - lamb korma, chicken... More

It has been some time since I have been to this restaurant. If I forgot how good it was, then this was a reminder of why I choose this restaurant whenever I am in the area. The restaurant has limited seating, but I have always have been able to find a seat. Two of us had lunch here and we... More

I ordered an appetizer and a goat cheese and spinach sandwich, both vegetarian and both amazingly tasty and fresh.

This small 'hole in the wall" restaurant is an absolute gem for a tasty lunch. Fresh ingredients, perfectly prepared, genuine Mediterranean cuisine. If you like hummus you will not find better anywhere. Not inexpensive, but worth every cent. It was featured on Diners Drive Ins and Dives. I agree with Guy that this is a must do if you are...

We visited this restaurant because we had seen it on Diners Drive-Ins and Dives. Our meal was good, but not great. We had way more salad than we needed. The menu was fairly limited.

I absolutely love this place for lunch. I always get the eggplant or a chicken and rice dish and they are so great and around $10. We took our family to dinner there and the menu was different than lunch and it cost a lot more so we don't go to dinner. But...when I drive by in the evenings it... More
