WHERE DO I START!? Beit Sitti is a GREAT TIME! We went in June 2015 -- and had a blast! We walked from Downtown Amman to Beit Siti -- (not far at all). We walked in to this beautiful restaurant/lounge -- converted from the girls' Grandmother's house -- which sits on a hill overlooking Amman.....incredible views. We were greeted by... More

As an American chef I was very excited to explore Arabic cuisine quite simply because there is not much of this type of food available in the states. I'd like to start by saying Maria(and her sisters) was an exceptional host and was very knowledgable. The rooftop setting hosts a breath taking view of the city and is well suited... More

We visited Beit Sitti as part of a work social event during a conference in Amman.The concept and story behind this restaurant is so wonderfully real and heart-warming. A fantastic Jordanian culinary and cultural experience without the pretense that usually go with business dinners. Such fun in an authentic setting - loved cooking on the terrace. The lovely Maria hosted... More

While we enjoyed our evening at Beit Sitti, we are very surprised that it has achieved such a high rating on Trip Advisor! The idea is fine, and the setting very nice, but we were critical of the following: 1. It is NOT a cooking course. The customers are given largely trivial tasks to perform, such as chopping the parsley.... More

This was a really lovely thing to be able to do while in Amman. The venue is quaint and Maria and her helper were fantastic. Additionally, they were very accommodating while we were scheduling the class. The food we made was great and the product for sale allowed us to go home feeling like we might be able to re-create...
