Not far from South Manchester’s famed Curry Mile, Petra stands its ground as an ambassador for astounding Middle Eastern and Arabic food from its fortress along Upper Brook Street. Serving the Rusholme and Longsight communities with halal delights ranging from cold and hot mezze through to mouthwatering grilled dishes, Petra takes its name from the renowned ancient city of Petra in Jordan, whose red sandstone buildings, carved right into the rock, were popularised in the blockbuster film Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade. Well, Petra have certainly carved out a niche for themselves here, with their premises just across from St Mary’s Hospital and a short walk from the University of Manchester often packed out.

Very friendly staff. Service was fast. Starters were very tasty... Main course was good but could be better. They only accepted cash which was slightly inconvenient as we had to go next door and cash money.
food is nice. but its a bit expensive. the other annoying part of it is the delay in serving the food. we had to wait for exactly one hour for my wife's order to get served. then she had to cancel the order as she shared our food. Munthir Abdullah
