The place is an actual old Jordanian house turned into a restaurant. The house is vintage and cozy. The music in the background adds to the scene. The Chef... More

Our group of ten (two families with three teenagers each) had the best time with Maria's cooking school in her grandmother's home. Maria was a fun and friendly hostess and the food was absolutely delicious! We really enjoyed the experience of learning about the different ingredients and learning how the dishes were prepared. There were many smiles and much laughter... More

Chef Maria and her team made us feel at home in what turns out is actually Maria's ancestral home - the culinary school is set in her grandmother's house, with wonderful décor and family and cooking lesson pictures. We got to cook a wonderful dinner meal consisting of four courses, in a fun, relaxed but also educational way. The result... More

The first thing that struck me about Beit Sitti was the beautiful setting in which we were to prepare our meals. As the winter sunshine brightened up the soft-coloured walls and we partook in cooking traditional Levantine food on the spacious terrace, I truly felt like I was in someone's grandmother's home. Maria was a great host. Her tips on... More

It was amazing Jordanian cooking experience. Maria has passion for cooking & was able to include everyone in the group. great atmosphere, excellent food. A place worth visit, group of tourists from around the world. The entire experience was warm and inviting. I highly recommend"Beit Sitti" means "My Grandmother's house".

I loved my experience at Beit Sitti. I was looking for authenticity, better understanding of Arabic cooking and culture, new culinary knowledge - and fun. And I got all of it. Beit Sitti's chef Maria combines both truly Jordanian cooking and professional culinary education. I strongly recommend this place for everyone interested in Arabic cooking.

Learn to cook traditional Levant cuisine in grandma's converted home. The instructor is fabulous! All the diners participate in making the meal and learn cooking skills and techniques. A truly interactive experience. Great for tourists and residents alike.
