Sufra is always on my list when inviting people visiting Jordan so they can enjoy the tasty food and lovely atmosphere the restaurant provides as it is an old house turned into a lovely restaurant. The food is not the only good thing there, the people working there are friendly, helpful and well mannered. The only down thing I would... More

Very well located at the busy and trendy Rainbow Street, Sufra is nicely decorated with a lovely garden and an amazing roof terrace. Best traditional food in town and at very reasonable prices. We have had the traditinal Mansaf which was out of this world. A place to visit again.

Sufra was recommended by the Concierge at the Hotel Kempinski where my friends and I were staying, And it was extraordinary. The atmosphere was great, and being able to sit outside made for a delightful evening. I would recommend reservations, and also to try a number of the salads that are on the menu. The Lemon MInt drink is out... More

My friend and I came here upon recommendation of a Jordanian friend during our 2-day stay in Amman. The restaurant is in a nice setting on Rainbow street (The street in Amman for dining and nightlife). We were told to try their Mansaf, the traditional Jordanian dish. I hadn't had it before so didn't know what to expect but can't... More
