An amazing experience. The owner will teach you to cook "Grandma's food". She is nice and very energetic, and very quickly we felt at home. Me and my wife had a wonderful time cooking and learning about their cuisine, and the final result was an incredible meal. Just one warning: Bait Sitti, in arab, means "my grandmother's house", so getting... More

I was living in Amman when I did this. I had visitors and a friend recommended Beit Sitti. We all went along, and it was definitely one of the take-away highlights for my visitor, and even for me during my three months as a resident of amman. A great house in Weibdeh, lovely atmosphere, and delicious food! Best of all,... More

Beit Sitti is one of the most unique cultural experiences available to travelers in Amman. Maria was an incredibly welcoming, fun and knowledgable host, teaching us many things about how Palestinian food is made and why certain spices are used. The experience overall is absolutely wonderful, then you add in the wonderful hosts, the stunning views of the hills below... More

Maria effortlessly makes everyone feel welcome at this really fun cooking course. It is set in her grandmother's house on the veranda with views stretching out over Amman. More to the point you learn to make some delicious food and sit down with everyone and enjoy the meal and atmosphere. Thoroughly worthwhile and a great way to become more familiar... More

We loved our evening at Beit Sitti! Hugely memorable and fun, and culturally rich and delicious! The entire experience was warm and inviting. We learned alot and enjoyed every minute. The meal was fantastic, but that was only part of the joy.

How many times does one have the opportunity to help prepare one's own meal in a restaurant? Here, there's that chance. One well spirited Maria will teach you and prepare together with you some typical Jordanian food. And the result was delicious, along with some local wine. If you are not familiar with Arabic food and want to know a... More

Our experience in April at Beit Sitti was a lot of fun. Our host Maria was very engaging and from the moment we arrived we were all put to work. The meal we produced was really delicious and we enjoyed eating it on a coolish evening on the terrace. If ever in Amman again we would love to go back... More

You will never get lost finding this humble home (ask any drivers and they’ll bring you), everyone's raving about it - and now I am, because it was the first time my newly-wed husband had ever cooked for me! Since our visit was during summer, we were warmly welcomed by some friendly fat cats and Amman's signature lemon-mint drink (lemonade)...a... More
