Wonderful and peaceful location in the heart of Amman: nice rooms inside and a beautiful garden outside; when air coditioning is on I suggest the latter as I'm not a fan of polar temperatures. Waiters are very kind and efficient. Food is good and served in great quantity. It's a place I'd like to visit again if I'll ever get... More

Wow. What an experience! My friends and I arrived early - but not early enough - for a table reservation. So we enjoyed some appetizers on the rooftop while watching world cup soccer. Once our table was available we went downstairs. The ambiance is amazing! You'll dine among the palms with city views next to a lovely mosque. The food... More

A truly fantastic and authentic Jordanian dining experience. From the warmly welcomed greeting through to the fantastic service and high-quality Jordanian cuisine, I would highly recommend Sufra restaurant. The setting in the gardens tranquil with a beautiful waterfall in the centre is just delightful. The quality of the food and hospitality is second to none. We only ate here one... More

We were impressed with the setting (garden, little fountain) of the restaurant and satisfied with the quality of the food. What Sufra really lacks is trained and professional personnel. It was obvious that certain groups of apparently wealthy local patrons were favoured by the staff while other guests/tourists were overlocked and not served.

Such an amazing idea to turn an old house into a vintage restaurant, I loved the experience of going to Sufra. The food is excellent as is the service, serving local Arabic food was great and close to home cooking which is healthy and clean, the staff were so friendly, and that's a perfect restaurant for visiting on Fridays with...

Hidden on corner of Rainbow Street, an absolute gem: beautiful secluded garden with fountain, elegant tables and place settings, superb service, outstanding food. Highlight was Jordanian signature dish: mansaf; absolutely delicious! A fabulous, romantic evening; the highlight of our dining in Amman

What a charming restaurant on Rainbow Street! Lovely villa turned restaurant serving delicious arabic dishes, many traditional "home cooked meals" at their best! Mezze is amazing especially the meat pastries.....could have eaten more of them.....but wanted to save room for the many tempting dishes arriving to the table. You can watch the bread coming hot out of the oven....this restaurant... More

Loved loved loved every mezze we tried, with the exception of the fattoush. The best was the dimseh-- a phenomenal lentil dish with pomegranate, tahini, and chili. The fried vegetable appetizer was also amazing, simple but perfectly seasoned. We enjoyed as well the grilled white cheese had a delicious cinnamon-sugar flavor to it, and the spinach pastry. My meat-eating friends... More

Being pedantic (vegetarian) we thought we would still try the local deli, even if most cuisines around the world would not really cater properly to us veggies. Really liked the food here, and definitely one of the best Arabic meals I have had in a long time. Would recommend this for sure the same way this was recommended by a... More

The restaurant is located at the first circle in Amman, and is set in an old house thats been renovated. Sit outside in the summer and enjoy the great weather. Its also lovely and cozy in the winter. They have a dish of the day and you can order a la carte. Wonderful arabic food - tastes just like grandma's... More
