Petra Restaurant

Middle Eastern and African

0.5 miles
267 Upper Brook Street, Manchester, M13 0HR
Just over a mile from Manchester city centre, Syrian and Lebanese restaurant Petra attracts many a loyal customer from all over Manchester. This fabulous restaurant serves authentic Middle Eastern cuisine in relaxed surroundings, and has a long-standing bring-your-own policy.

Their menu consists of starters and mains, but the sheer number of hot and cold starters on offer indicates the popularity of ordering a selection of small dishes as meze. With everything freshly made on the premises, I'd recommend you go for this option; this is a great way to explore the richness of Middle Eastern cuisine and a great introduction for first-time visitors, but it will also delight those already well-acquainted with the food from the region.

We ordered too many dishes to mention and all were delectable, though I must mention the delicious sujok lamb sausages - spicy, brick red and comparable to merguez sausages from France. Also noteworthy were the softly spiced shami rice and the crisp potato kibbeh. I will be returning for the outstanding lahembajeen, which translates as 'flat lamb pie', and consists of pastry topped with the most succulent layer of minced lamb, swathed in a gorgeous pomegranate sauce - a perfect illustration of Petra's skill in conjuring astonishing and unique flavours.
