“A taste of your wallet :s”
Reviewed 27 November 2013

the food is excellent, one of the best Foul that you will ever taste in Jordan, the restaurant is huge, the waiters are not that friendly. however the prices are extremely EXPENSIVE and overrated, at the end we are ordering Hummus and Foul !!

but the total experience is good.

“Undisputed Foul in Jordan (Fava Beans)”
Reviewed 23 October 2013

The restaurant is testified by Lebanese, Syrians , Egyptians, Jordanians and other western countries nationals, be sure to ask for Foul , it might be a higher in prices compared to other restaurant , but its worth it.

This restaurant is the reason why Mr. Abu Jbara went from only one shop, to a dominant chain in All of Amman, the reason it didn't reach your country because he can only be in one place supervising his workers (the main restaurant) and the other branches are supervised by his sons

“A taste for every budget”
Reviewed 15 October 2013

Known for its excellent quality traditional Mesopotamian food such as Hummus & Falafel with a glass of tea and mint. Well to do families and friends take breakfast while limited budget guests take dinner. Same food and same price. Medina street where this restaurant is located is heavy with traffic day & night but the taste of the food will surely make a guest to forget traffic issues. It is open 24 hours/day..

“The king of falafel”
Reviewed 15 October 2013

Whether you want to have a quick sandwich or sit at the place and have a traditional meal, this is the place to be. A bit crowded at holidays, but simply because its one of the best.
The place is expensive, but at least you are getting crunchy Falafel, a superb round of dishes and best of all the bread is always hot from the oven.

“The Best in it's Class”
Reviewed 8 October 2013

Best one who serves Hommos and Fol In Amman. it's not a classy restaurant, most oreders are delivery ones, but if you are a tourist then you must check in there for a couple of time for breakfast....and if you are a Hummos and Fol Lover then you will be there more often.
