This little Falafel shop on Rainbow St is very popular- there'll almost always be a few other people queuing to get a sandwich. Like practically all falafel in Jordan, it's ridiculously cheap- around 75 quirsh (cents) for a sandwich. But while the falafel was good, the sub-rolls they serve it on really took away from the taste for me. Traditionally... More

I refer to falafel as "the hot dog of Jordan". Whether that's an appropriate comparison is debatable, but the bottom line is no visit to Amman would be complete without at stop at Al-Quds.

Delicious falafel grilled in a white sandwich bread. Don't forget to ask for their spicy paste and pickled cucumbers for a wholesome taste

I went here at night (~9pm) and there was no line up! It was made to order so it was very fresh and the service was speedy. I paid half of 1JD for a shawmera and it was enough for me. Buy 2-3 if you work out or if you just can't get enough of it

It must have been in the 80's when I went there the first time and still return for the great falafel sandwich

Tiny little Gem of a place, essentially a hole in the wall. Very friendly owner and chef. About 90c AUD per roll. Very delicious and highly recommend!

Middle Eastern cuisine is among my favourites, and falafel a must have every time. So I went down to Rainbow Street to taste the Al-Quds falafel and was not disappointed. A delicious cheap eat, tasty falafel and delicious tahini. Only have in mind it's take away, and on the evening I went there weren't many people around, so I just... More

Great Jordanian food. Had the humus, mutabal and mental lamb and rice at modest prices. Restaurant was full of locals.

The best falafel sandwich in Amman, the place has been open for ages and the quality never dropped. The falafels are amazing, made fresh and very tasty.
