We had heard of this place for years and finally stopped for lunch. At 1 PM there was a line and the room was full. I felt like we were back in Israel with the Middle Eastern menu. I had the lunch falafel and the bride had one of those eggplant,etc pitas. Both were bursting with exotic flavors. Even the... More

Visited Cafe Rakka for the 2nd time last night for Valentine's Day with my wife. This is one of her favorite places and I surely don't mind bringing her here and enjoying the food myself. My wife's favorite dish is "Chicken on the Sajj", my daughter faithfully returns to her "Chicken Tikka Masala". Last night I tried a new dish... More

Great Mediterranean cuisine. Like bringing people here for a casual and healthy business lunch. I eat here about once a month and find this is easy to reach and love the food every time.

My meal was very delicious and healthy. Not many options on the entree list compared to other Mediterranean restaurants I've visited but that's not a worry if all of their dishes taste as good as the shrimp jalfrezi. I asked for spicy and boy was it!! I would highly recommend for a date or small gathering. Place is small but... More

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.
