Great falafel and hummus place. Clean, good service and delicious. Order lots of dishes to share, and a falafel sandwich it's amazing.

This is my 6th visit to Jordan and Abu Jbara is one of the places I MUST go to when I visit (several times during each visit). I cannot eat falafel anywhere else anymore except at Abu Jbara. I tried the falafel with foul sandwich for the first time and it was oh, so delicious. I still don't know why... More

Since my first visit in 2009, on my visits to Amman (not often enough, I might add - I love the city & the people) I always look forward to a visit to Abu Jbara. They consistently have the best falafel and hummus I have eaten anywhere in the world. It's neither fancy nor pretentious - the clientele includes families... More

Yummy fresh bread delivered every five minutes to your table. Simple Arab food, falafel, beans, hommus, salad. Can feed a family of 6 for 24JD eating everything on the menu. Open 24 hours with an open, light airy feel.

Abu Jbara in Amman has the best hummus and the best falafel in Amman. Their restaurant on Madinah street is huge but the service is fast...the prices are expensive for what should be a commoner type of food. Friday morning their hummus/ falafel take out is too but they are very efficient and the lines move quickly. highly recommended

Ok so the ambiance is nice but the prices are ridiculously expensive for a falafel shop, and the service is not that unique!

We were just amazed at the long lines of people queuing up on Friday before prayers with their own crockery to be filled with felafal, hummus and ful to take home. We loved the felafal. Ful was a bit too sour for my liking but all in all a great experience if you want to taste the local breakfast!

This is a huge restaurant open 24 hours and half the restaurant is for take out which includes burgers and other items among falafel and humus. The inside is a huge seating area where you get served while seated anything from the menu and you get to try their homemade olives and pickles and speciality bread.
