A convenient eat-in or take-away restaurant right in the center of Wadi Musa, with a cheerful, bright, and clean interior. Service was very good, and the portions of food were incredible given the price!

Very tasty food - and loads of it! It's always a good recommendation to see local people dining - and here there were lots. The food did not disappoint.

We enjoyed the grilled meat at Al Arabi, especially the Shawarma Arabia mixed dish was to die for. Only non-alcoholic beer available. Prices very moderate. Parking not too hard to find in the side streets.
