I think I would call this a dinner with a difference, rather than a cookery course. We got in last minute while they were renovating. We were allocated to a table and offered a choice of soft drink. Unfortunately, these were swept away by staff before we had had a chance to drink them. Our table was given the task of prepping veg for tabbouleh. Then, either squeezing a lemon or chopping garlic. That was as much cookery as we did as after that we were told to help another group put toppings on mini-flatbreads but with 12 or more of us around a small table, it was not possible for everyone to be hands on. Then we watched the other dishes being made.
Food hygiene standards were good.
What we enjoyed best here was the food itself and the conversation and social evening we had with other guests. In London, we go to Supper Clubs and this had a similar vibe.
We brought our own wine which we handled ourselves, as per the local protocol.
Total bill was 79JOD which had to be cash only as no connections for card possible.
We thought this was good value for what we ate and the sociable experience.

The food there is very good for the price, and they are inexpensive. Qussai Nawafleh and Ahmad Farajat are very friendly and hospitable staff there. A very unique and authentic dining experience in Petra, highly recommended.

Dropped in without a reservation and glad they had space for us. The food is fresh and really tasty and it’s a great way to meet fellow travelers. A unique experience.

After reading all the excellent reviews we ventured out to the Petra Kitchen to find it a building site.
It would be helpful if tripadvisor could not state so confidently “open now”

Indeed, we agree.

However, it takes days for TA to approve any changes and there was some unforeseen maintenance we needed to address. Apologies for any inconvenience.

The food is very good and the staff is friendly. Wonderful mint lemonade. We did the cooking course as well, it's just what you need for an evening in Petra. We took with us the receipts for delicious traditional meals. Highly recommend it.
