We have been living in the Middle East for over 5 years, and I can say without a doubt that this has been our favorite dining experience so far. A cozy, beautiful setting, delightful hostess, and incredible authentic Jordanian food. Thank you so much for a memorable night!

Bait Sitti is a must-do experience in Amman. Our group learned to make delicious home-made Jordanian food in a relaxed and beautiful atmosphere. The dishes were made of fresh, local ingredients. The recipes were not too complicated, making it possible to attempt to make them at home. A great place to bring a group of friends or visitors to the... More

Managed to book for 3 to introduce a business partner to Jordanian cooking, ended up as a team building activity; highly interactive, keeps mind off work, laughter, jokes and good company. Got introduced to three other foreigners visiting Jordan for different reasons , got by a fancy dinner, made by us, on a Mideastern cultural table carrying an international conversation.

Beit Sitti ("my grandmother's house") is a great little place in the old center of Amman where they host Arabic cooking lessons. They'll accommodate anything from one person to large groups and will teach you to make any dish you're interested in. The restaurant feels like a home - and most likely was - complete with decades-old family photos on... More

Visited this place having read great reviews about it in a number travel magazines and guides, and it lived up to all the hype. The setting is charming, the house is homely and beautiful and the staff wonderful. We were shown by Maria how to make a number of local dishes and sides. Maria is one of the three sisters... More

Best Sitti is a good Amman experience. It is in a beautiful house, and you will gain insights into Jordanian cuisine while getting your hands dirty. If you don't expect a true cooking class and don't expect your best meal in Amman, you can spend an enjoyable evening that will definitely leave an impression. Beware that the restaurant/house is difficult... More

We were persuaded to join a large group for dinner cooking lesson as opposed to our own 4 person private lesson. The house is magnificent, its history very interesting, the meal and company was great, The group was 20 people, our "cooking experience" was chopping one onion and cucumber, then watching some final prep by our host, followed by a...

I've taken several cooking classes while traveling, and this is probably one of the best ones I've ever done. First off, the venue itself is unbelievably charming. Classes are held in the house above the Beit Sitti restaurant. It is a beautifully done up old building that will have you take almost as many photos of the house, as the... More
