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.

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
