Midpriced with locals as well as tourists

We went for lunch and they had a buffet. It was about 10 JD per person, and the selection was good (some Western, mostly Middle Eastern). Relaxing, nice people. Argileh/shisha available. No alcohol.

A must visit place in Amman, they offer a very good selection of food, local and hot drinks along with Shisha. They have a nice balcony with limited seating options and a huge indoors area, they also have entertainment (singer with Oud) prices are reasonable.
