Interesting place

Had drinks and shisha here. The atmosphere was lively, and the shisha was good. The tea was also good, but it's fairly difficult to mess up tea. Recommend for a stop after eating dinner at Hashem's.

Nice place for dinner, good choice of food and great quality. Since it is in downtown it may be tricky to find a parking space but it is worth it. Another good thing is a dvd shop downstairs, also called Jafra. A lot of movies you would hardly find anywhere else, and cheap, like 1 jd.

We stopped by Jafra in June 2015, while we were walking around downtown Amman. We sat in the Balcony, and had some coffee & shisha (both which were great!). We were heading to a cooking class -- so we did not eat.....I ordered the Strawberry smoothie -- it was very fresh and hearty (heads-up....comes out room temp.). The balcony had... More

The cafe is based in down town Amman where historically all the banks and commerce was once located there before moving some of the major companies to uptown Amman which is modern but lacks authenticity that downtown amman has to offer from souvenirs, fresh juice especially Sugar cane, to original old souks ( markets) for textile, gold and even a...

We had lunch and drank mint lemonade, both food and drinks were excellent, the service was fast and good. The place is very busy even though the prices are fairly elevated. I would definitely recommend this place to anyone who can afford it. We were called by Jordanians sitting next to us to join them and to try their meal,... More

The food here made the smokey and noisy environment worth it. We went here on our last night in Jordan at the recommendation of our guest house. I was starting to get sick, and don't tolerate cigarette smoke well at the best of times, but usually don't mind hookah too much. This restaurant however, is just full of smoke of... More
