Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

Tasty and regional. Seasonal camel kebab and mansaf are great. Few extras, free tea at the end, so order juice with your meal :). The service was fast and very nice.

Excellent food, brilliant service. Very good value for money. Best food I've had during my 2 week stay in Jordan, travelling from Amman to Aqaba and many places in-between. 👌

One of the best restaurants in Wadi Musa. We enjoyed everything; food, service, hospitality. Twice, because we came back, and that should tell you something.

Enjoyed a great dinner at Zawaya Restaurant in Petra this evening. Our dishes included Mansaf and Zawaya special with cubed lamb. Tasty food and great service. Our baclava desserts were phenomenal - quite different from the Greek type and delicious.

As far as I know, you can order any dish and say that you don't want some ingredients in it.
