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.

I am a regular customer to this place. It has the tastiest falafel and hummus in amman. Also it is very clean. Service is quick and prices are higher than the average falafel restaurant but definitely worth it.

Only in Abu Jbara you can buy a humus dish and have it stored in the fridge several days without it getting bad. It even gets dried and do not come sour. They use real lemon juice and not citric acid, as most shops do, and the shop is immaculate. The only drawback is that the branch in Madina Monawarh... More

Whilst visiting Amman, we were recommended Abu Jabara and we are glad we went! Whilst we were in central Kaldan (an upmarket area), we took a trip to Madina Munawwarah St to grab some of their legendary food. It was well worth the trip and we absolutely enjoyed the food. Whilst I have never been a fan of falafel, this... More
