A wonderful intro to delicious Arabic Cuisine!

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... read 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...

Such a good evening! It was like being in a TV cookery show, having fun, learning some things then eating fabulous Arabic dishes ( and being given doggy bags to take home.) Definitely not to be missed if you are in Amman.

I've attended this restaurant twice for cooking classes, both times with a large group of friends. Feel free to book a reservation if you're a couple or even if you are alone. You won't regret it.

I spent a lovely afternoon at Beit Setti to learn how to cook a few Vegan Jordanian dishes. Maria was extremely nice and very accommodating. I did learn a lot from her, she teaches you lots of cooking tricks. Food was super yamicious, Maria and Tania both are such sweat hearts and I will definitely pay beit setti a visit... More
