My husband and I are Food Network groupies and we saw the Diner's, Drive Ins & Dives episode featuring Cafe' Rakka. My husband is a lamb lover but I wasn't, not until last week! Cafe' Rakka is an unassuming little place with indoor and outdoor...More

All the food was very flavorful. The hummus was particularly good and the pitas were very tasty with the good texture. The chicken ticka was very delicious.

Rakka is amazing, I've been there dozens of times and it's if not the best one of the best restaurants in the Hendersonville area. It is great for lunch and dinner, the atmosphere is Arabian and super cool, wouldn't recommend for large parties though because...More

This is the restaurant for you when you want something other than chain restaurant food and are looking for fresh, authentic food! Seating is limited, so try to visit other than the main busy time. Or, place an order to go!
