We were so lucky that our first Jordanian meal was at Sufra. Everything we had was superb! We ate incredible chicken livers in an amazing sauce, kubbeh, spinach pastries, grilled pita and pickled olives to start, and then shared the mansaf, Jordan's national dish of the most tender lamb over the softest rice with nuts, and a hot yogurt like...

We arrived without a booking on the evening of Mothers' Day so the restaurant was heaving with families! Even so, we were made to feel most welcome and a table was found for us. Service was efficient and friendly, despite the restaurant being so full and the food was simply heavenly! The flavours were so delicate and this was real... More

Maybe we were unlucky and/or chose badly, but this was not the memorable dining experience we were looking for on our last night in Jordan. The surroundings are very nice (we ate in the no smoking conservatory) and the atmosphere was qute buzzy, but sadly the food was indifferent and the specialy lamb dish we ordered was nearly cold when...

If you want traditional Jordanian food that is excellently prepared in a lovely and pleasant setting with great service, this is the place. Situated on Rainbow Street, you're in a good location for a nice after dinner walk.

I visited Sufra with a local Jordanian, and it was such a treat! The place from outside can be deceptive but once in, it's fairy tale like! Good ambience, excellent food spread and the taste was one of its kind! I'm so thankful to my Jordanian colleague for showing me such a lovely hospitable place!

The food was very good. Chicken liver as a start was very good so were the eggplants mezzes. The main dishes were also very tasty but so expensive compared to what you will pay for in other restaurants. We wanted to order as a dessert the pistachio icecream with candies which was ... 6JDS.

Sufra Restaurant is definitely one of the best in Amman. Centrally located, great food and beautiful to eat outside in summer. Busy on Fridays so book in advance, and no alcohol is served, but authentic middle eastern food at very convenient prices.

If you are in Amman, the choice of restaurants is vast. But Sufra has wonderful local fare and a lovely, homestyle atmosphere. No alcohol, but who cares. You can have a drink before or after when you are back at your hotel!
