An easy way to try great local food

The usual Arabian food (houmous, ful, falafal, hot bread) done well in a bright, airy and clean restaurant. The food can be eaten in or taken away, I always find the staff very helpful although a bit of Arabic is helpful. The prices are cheap and the restaurant won't scare people new to the Middle... read more

Abu Jbara is the best restaurant for popular food in Jordan. it has the tastiest felafel ever. The prices compared with other restaurants which provide the same kind of food are a little bit high.

Always a winner when it comes to traditional Arabic food. Very affordable with a huge selection: hummus, foul, falafel, everything! Not to be missed!

My sister and her daughter came for a visit in the evening, and since Me and my wife were fasting we decide to have something from Abo Jbara. I went and order Fateh : fateh is made from arabic bread soaked with the water of the boiled Hummus , mixed with Hummus topped with Snober. Of course it was delicious... More

This place is becoming an institution in Amman. I always have breakfast there when I visit Amman. They serve basic Arabic breakfast dishes: hummus, fool (fava beans), fatteh, falafel and so on. Freshly baked Arabic bread is constantly provided. So if you're looking for a fancy quiet place with ambience this is NOT it. But it is a place that... More

I always take it as a good sign when patrons can see right into the kitchen, and that is the case with this restaurant. Looking at food being prepared, it all seems super efficient and very hygenic. Speedy service from staff, who speak no or very little English. But the food is the best I have had in a very... More

Abu Jbara is by far one of the best places to have traditional breakfast food .. It is clean, food is tasty, and served quickly .. Although the service is quick, the waiters rarely speak other languages beside Arabic, also they rarely smile, and may be sometimes rude .. The place is very crowded in weekends and holidays ..

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 :)
