If you think you know a good falafel - you don't - until you've tried Al-Quds. Amazing to watch the guy in the window make them. So light and crunchy and not heavily fried and oily. These little balls of chickpea goodness don't sit on your stomach like a pound of lead. I'm gluten free so I asked for the... More

This place is around 50 years old. It's still around for a reason. It served one of Amman's best falafel sandwiches. They prepare them then grill them before serving them. You cannot come to Amman and not try Al-Quds (Jerusalem). You must not confuse this place with Al-Quds restaurant in downtown, which serves Mansaf and other amazing local dishes (this... More

Tasty falafel snadwiches at 0.75 JD each. Super tasty quick and cheap. When we went there was a queue of like 10 people outside. There was a reason for that queue!

Al-Quds without any doubt offers the best falafel in towm and it is indeed finger licking tasteful. Very simplistic preparation but thats the whole beauty of the dish, place and people too. Located right on the main street it is definately not to be missed

I came here on a recommendation for some of the best falafels in Amman, I wasn't disappointed, the only problem now is falafels will not be the same once I return home - Please franchise to New Zealand.

Not much to say here except the falafel here is superb and dirt cheap. When on Rainbow u have to stop by. Cheap, quick and extremely effective. I doubt you'll spend a penny more efficiently in your life.

We were recommended this place by a local friend. Being tired of Falafel we wanted to try some Jordanian dishes . Loved walking past the sweets to get into the restaurant. Great appetiser. Went first for the Mansaf - the traditional dish of lamb and rice in a yoghurt sauce. Wasn't my favourite but loved the lentil soup, chicken and... More

Most all visitors to Amman will find themselves at some point on Rainbow St, and this is a perfect snack of meal for quite little. If the weather is nice continue on down the street and find a seat at the overlook of the old city and the world's 7th highest flagpole, the Raghadan Flagpole across the small valley.
