Excellent food not the best service

If you want a place for traditional Jordanian/Palestinian breakfast for your family or guests, this is your best choice. Pros: 1) delicious food. 2) spacious restaurant. 3) good service. Cons: 1) very difficult to find a parking space. 2) over priced for the food type served, yet justified for the location in Western Amman.

Abu Jabara Khalda branch is just perfect spot it was near our hotel - walking distance from Ibis, and the MENU just amazing, a lot of dishes that you can't try in just one visit, fast service, hot freshly backed bread served each few minutes, you will just fall in love with the place , much recommended :)

If you want to be very gassy for at least 24 hours then visit Abu Jubara. They only have a few options on the menu which are the hummus, falafel, fatteh and fool. All dishes are ok. Do order mint tea with your meal

This restaurant serves only Hummos, foul, falafel...etc. The falafel they serve are delicious, as well as the other plates. Great place for breakfast. The downside is that it is crowded and the service not great.

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
