BEST FALAFEL in the world!!

I have a thing for falafel and have tried falafel all over the world. This IS THE BEST!!! It is not a fancy restaurant but a traditional falafel outlet. It's a Simple place producing excellent falafel sandwiches for many years. Soft fresh bread, salad and great falafel. Great location in rainbow... read more

I've got to say they know how to cook lamb in Jordan. This is an authentic meal that I believe you better eat at home in any case their mansaf is really good.

I wouldn't call this a restaurant- although from reviews perhaps there is one at the back? We walked by there was someone frying falafel in the window he gave us a couple to try and we bought a couple of sandwich for something like 1JD. Highly recommended- fresh, hot and very tasty!

This place only does falafels and really good ones at that. You walk in, get a falafel sandwich made as per your liking, it is delivered freshly made in good time to you, enjoy till the last bite and then come back for some more. They are good at the one thing that they do. Must visit while on rainbow... More

These guys do one, and do it very well: falafel sandwiches. We stopped by here while walking through Rainbow Street and had a great falafel sandwich for an afternoon snack. This is a must-visit if you are on Rainbow Street

Good restaurant and good food and sweets but you can't help but noting how superficial the service is, there mus be more quality standards and procedures to prevent disappointing experience!

This is quick, efficient service, great price for a really good sandwich to take out. It's just what it needs to be: deep fryer going in the window, churning out delicious falafel, a couple guys assembling the sandwiches behind the counter. Nothing fancy, just really good. The sesame bread is wonderful and its long and flat, cooked like a panini.... More

You have truly not lived until you have had a falafel sandwich at Al-Quds. For any falafel connoisseurs, I am sure that the first image that popped into your head were falafel balls nestled into a warm piece of pita. But, think again! Al-Quds marches to its own falafel beat, instead placing your falafel inside a large piece of sesame... More

One of the best in town with value for money and consistent quality. I have been buying falafel from there for more than 10 years whenever I pass by the British Counsel. No place to eat, you have to take your sandwich and find a place around or go somewhere.

My friends in Amman tell me that this is the best place to buy falafel...I've not tried enough to know whether that's true or not, but I was certainly very pleased with my order. I had the spicy falafel, which was genuinely spicy!
