Great Jordanian Dishes

Great setting in a quiet old home on what is otherwise a very busy hectic street. The first thing you notice are the mismatched vintage dinner plates which make you feel you are at your grandmother's house.

Nestled in the corner of Rainbow Street is the elegant Sufra which has very nicely adopted a villa as the venue. Great food and service. The Shisha is very good and associated service prompt. Try the traditional Jordanian food here. Highly recommended.

The restaurant is located in a lovely old mansion with beautiful outdoor gardens. There is a good selection of local food and everyone is sure to find something to like. They are a wee bit heavy on the salt seasoning so be forewarned. Service is a bit slow so it depends if you are in a hurry or not. They... More

Sufra continues to be an excellent restaurant in all aspects! We were a large group, they accommodated all of our requests, including dietary modifications (I find that to be worth mentioning as in the Middle East this is not common or easily accomplished) and even prepared kunafah, which -although not as delicious as in Habibah- is hard to serve for...

Very nice restaurant - we ate in the patio and the service was excellent. It was little bit more expensive than the other places in Amman

Most appetizers were good. But by the time, I got to the main dishes, most of them were gone. Deserts were not good.

We went to Sufra in June 2015 -- at the recommendation of our Concierge. We had a few drinks across the street at Q, and then were also recommended to go to Sufra for some authentic Jordanian eats by the waitress. So we went -- and the restaurant is beautiful! We sat at our own bench in this gorgeous outdoor... More

Sufra is the best Arabic "home made" style food. It serves almost all traditional Arabic (Jordanian) dishes. However, not all are available everyday. The most popular, Mansaf, is available everyday but the other dishes (Magloubeh, Freekeh etc) are served on a certain day of the week. There are other basic dishes like roast chicken, kufta etc that are served everyday... More

We've dined here a couple of times and have always enjoyed the atmosphere and quaintness of this place. The meals are unique and rich and we always leave with leftovers because the portions are so generous.
