“Highly recommended!”
Reviewed 24 April 2014 via mobile

For authentic food in Amman, this is excellent choise even by local's standard. This is huge and busy restaurant, so don't expect that much privacy. But you can expect good service, everything came to table so fast that you don't have to be afraid of starving! Try Mansaf, traditional tender and mild lamb dish, but ask it to be served in traditional way too (on big sharing plate). Definitely recommended!

“Tourists trap but food was quite good”
Reviewed 23 April 2014

Brought to this restaurant by our driver. From the start, it felt like a tourists trap. Seated outdoor underneath the tent. We were there at around 2:30 pm. The place was buzzing with package holiday makers whom were undoubtedly being brought there by the travel agencies. The atmosphere was smoked filled as patrons were allowed to smoke in the restaurant and open air. The starters were good and of many choices. The grilled meats were tasty but the famous Jordanian dish, mansaf was just OK. Despite having added service and government taxes to the final bill, the staffs still expected tips which is really annoying. Service was prompt if you termed it that when you are still eating, they cleared the plate away from you. Otherwise, a somewhat OK introduction to Jordanian cuisine.

“best restuarant in amman”
Reviewed 16 April 2014

It is by far (in my opinion) the best restaurant, that serves middleeastern food. I like the atmosphere and the service is superb. my only problem, which is common in Amman, is smoking.
