“Better than the high-priced restaurants...”
Reviewed 30 April 2014

I had an excellent meal following a self-guided tour through Amman at Hashem - it's a true gem of a place. Fresh food, made with fresh ingredients (I saw a delivery of fresh veggies and herbs while eating) and at a fair price.

Some of the best falafels I have ever had in my life!

I was disappointed the following days when eating at higher-priced restaurants - the flavours were not the same.

“Terrific value and oh so tasty!”
Reviewed 28 April 2014

Quick, fresh and filling! The spread brought before us was absolutely delicious - fresh pita, humus, foul, tomatoes and bunches of fresh mint. This is a great little place open at all hours.. and can't go wrong for 4 JD a meal!

“Can't go wrong with a 4 JOD meal!”
Reviewed 28 April 2014

It's cheap as chips, in fact the cheapest restaurant we found during our week-long stay in Jordan. But the food is really good. Get the 'mix', that's what everyone gets. It's vegetarian but it's so good we didn't even really notice! You only get everything once - if you ask again (we asked for more tea) then you get charged.

Several locals recommended this place and I love it. Best falafel in town, the motabal there is so good as well.

“Great Falafel and Foul”
Reviewed 21 April 2014

Popped in here by myself on the recommendation of Lonely Planet, was not disappointed at all. Fantastic foul, hummus and falafel. Try the stuffed falafef too.

Great sweet tea also. In total costs a couple of diner

Good atmosphere and great place to people watch. Staff make the diners very welcome - even those new to Middle Eastern cuisine.
