Shisha and belly-dance south

cleo.jpgOpen for about two weeks, Cleopatra Mediterranean Restaurant (2120 South IH-35 on the west frontage road) brings much that’s new for South Austin.

A divan room, generous with cushions, is outfitted with a hookah for use with shisha tobacco. Every Saturday night there’s to be Arab music with a DJ, along with dabke and belly-dance.

There was quite an extensive buffet set out for lunch, and there’s a full menu at dinnertime. A take-out menu includes shawarma, all the appetizers that one would expect, and a variety of sandwiches on pita bread. Each day’s luncheon and buffet features a specialty and soup of the day. Except on Sundays, when Cleopatra’s hours are from 3 pm to midnight, the doors open every day at 11:30 am and don’t close until midnight Mondays through Thursdays and not until 2 am on Fridays and Saturdays.

Ample parking behind the building makes it easy to stop by and pick up a take-out menu or food to go on the spur of the moment. Advance take-out orders may be placed by calling 947-9462 or 707-1578.
