I always make a visit to Abu Jbara when I visit Amman. A non-pretentious clean place with sturdy wooden tables and chairs. Good attentive and prompt service. Great homous, feti, foul, falafel just as the Jordanians like it. Good quality and tasty dishes. Don't expect any flowery service of... read more

We had an excellent breakfast of delicious dishes made from hoomus. Each dish was more delicious than the other. And piping, hot bread is served all along. My favorite was the feti hoomus! Enjoy!

This is definitely the best falafel in Amman. The restaurant is large and clean. The service is very fast, and the servers are very friendly. The location is a bit unfortunate as the traffic can be bad, but it's definitely worth a trip.

For me traditional food should be eaten in traditional busy city center but this is an expetion . I tried it fool,Humos,flalfil. It was OK for relatively reasonable price.

One of the best restaurants for breakfast and shoor during Ramadan, mashalah this place is always full, great food, consistency with the portions and taste, you can't expect a good service all the time, depends on your waiter, if he is in a good mood he will hook you up.

The service is great. The food is delicious. I like the Homos, Falafel, Fool, and Fateh. It is the best place in Amman to go and eat in restaurant such food. The price is more expensive than other restaurants but it is acceptable.

As someone who regularly eats hummus and falafel abroad, I did have some expectations for the authentic kind, but they were quickly surpassed by a mile. The food here is cheap and fantastic, service is quick and friendly, and the setting is nice and casual. The music and bread refills are a particularly nice touch, but then again, you can... More

This is a nice place to have a local breakfast Hummus and Foul and Falafil. When ever I am in Amman I like to have breakfast at this place cost arround 2 JD. The Falafil is the best you can have in Amman. Also in the same time it is not a fancy place it is just a l
