Petra Palace Lebanese Restaurant, Phillip – delicious food


Recently opened last year, Petra Palace is a relative new comer to Canberra world cuisine dining, but one well worth seeking out as the food is simply delicious!

Tucked away in Colbee Court Phillip, like many of Canberra’s suburban gems, it offers easy at the door parking and good value prices.

The decor is welcoming and attractive, with some cozy, colourful couches.

Great for groups who would like to share a few dishes, it can get a little noisy for the hard of hearing.


Some of the most delicious dishes include:

Hummus $10 (especially the Hummus Beirut with parsley and chilli) served with the most amazing Lebanese bread.

These are probably better picks than the (also nice)  Baba Ganoush $10



Falafel (4 pieces) $10 with tahini sauce, pickles and tomatoes.


Lamb Fatteh $25, Chicken Fatteh $25 or Petra Fatteh $18 – casserole of marinated chicken/chargrilled eggplant, crispy Lebanese bread, spiced rice, garlic, mint, yogurt and tahini topped with pie nuts.

For variety you may want to add…

….a Fattoush Salad $15 cos lettuce, diced tomato, cucumber, capsicum, onion with a lemon and olive oil dressing topped with crispy Lebanese bread….


…or some kebabs $25 for 3 lamb, chicken or ground lamb and beef kebabs or $20 for vegetable kebabs, all served with rice/couscous/hot chips and a garnish of vegetables.

The Cheese Sambousek (4 pieces) $15 Handmade pastry filled with feta cheese is also very good.


For something sweet the Baklava is nicely portioned at $5 for two small pieces.


For a group of four people a lovely menu to share would be:

1x Hummus Beirut with Lebanese Bread $10

1x Falafel $10

1x Chicken Fatteh $25

1x Fattoush Salad $15

Total $60 ($15 per person)


Not BYO, but wine is available by the glass starting at $7.50 and bottles are reasonably priced at $28 -$35.

Canberra Entertainment Book Holders can also get two main meals for the price of one.

Timing a visit for the Belly dancing on Saturday nights would also be great fun.

Open for dinner Tuesday – Saturday 5-10pm
