Best Falafel in Town

Take it from a local who loves her falafel; this place has the best falafel in town. It has been around since the sixties and refuses to sell falafel pieces. It only sells sandwiches. Delicious! If you like some heat make sure to ask to have some chilli (shattah) added.

I tried this place for 100 times now and it still taste the same as ever, they use the sandwich bread unlike other places which use Arabic flat bread , so you may try it as a change. On Friday they open at evening only

the best falafel sandwich in Amman since forever. Super simple yet super delicious! No place to sit, it is a takeout place only. Very good value for money.

Hole in the wall type operation with only three choices: plain bread, sesame seeds bread, spicy sauce or not. Simple no fluff. However it beats any falafel and falafel sandwich I have ever eaten. The deluxe sandwich (falafel in sesame seeds bread with spicy sauce) is a mere dollar but the flavor and the very polite service evokes all the... More

Didn't expect that sandwich to be that good. Falafel, pickles, tomato, yogurt on sesame bread (or regular bread) . For about a dollar. Can't really go wrong there. Made fresh , super good. Great service.
