Great traditional Jordanian food...was dubious because tour guide company driver recommended it and thought it was the Uncle Mohammed special, but real deal with terrific food, good outdoor courtyard ambiance, good and attentive service...ample portions, lots of different and interesting mezas...just go!

our tour guide recommended this place to us when we requested a reliable, consistent restaurant for a traditional jordanian feast. it did not disappoint! it's very large but yet each table still feels quite intimate. it was just my partner and i sharing a gigantic round table that filled up very quickly with lots of little dishes which were absolutely...

Nice setting & food. The summer setting is very nice in the form of Arabian tents & you can chose from different places to sit in the cold weather. The food is good & the price also.

Went there with the recommendation of our tour guide, since we want a Jordanian feast. And what a feast it was! We were ushered to our seats like VIPs! The chief waiter recommended a few popular dishes and we said ok. We started our meal with tapas, chickpeas, cucumber puréed and small chunks of BBQ meat. Washed down with lime... More

I had iftar here during Ramadan and the food was very good. It is difficult to serve good quality food for iftar because of the huge numbers you are having to cater for but this restaurant has it perfected. The mezze were all fresh and good quality. The chicken 'freeke' and meat 'makloubeh' were excellent. The waiters were quick to... More

I visited Amman as part of a tour in Jordan, but during Ramadan. During the day most restaurants are closed so our guide had a tough time keeping us fed :-). In Amman he took us to this restaurant for lunch, and as we were the only guests, I think they opened especially for us. It is a very nice... More

The food was fresh & very tasty, the atmosphere was a typical Arabian one, the staff were doing their job perfectly. My 4 stars review is because they don't service Alcoholic drinks, specially for a BBQ serving restaurant.

There's a lot of space here. In fact its huge and walking in we wondered about food quality. But we need not have done so. The food was really good. We were seated at large round tables and immediately served with mezze- the dishes placed all around. There were also a variety of chilled local drinks/juices to choose from. The... More

This is a very big place with lots of different places you can sit including outside. We were with a small group and sat inside. The food we had was mezze style and it was all good, but for that it was a bit 'same old- same old'. There was nothing unusual or special about the food compare to similar... More
