If you're not in a hurry this is a great restaurant with delicious food and a nice atmosphere. I would give it four stars instead of three but the waiters were not easily tracked down and for me the language barrier made it hard to order. Many Amman restaurants have someone who speaks English but Zaatar W Zait seemed to... More

I regret not trying this place earlier. I guess the name of the restaurant made it sound not special... but it was PERFECT! Pros: 1) Valet parking 2) nicely decorated place 3) outdoor sitting area 4) friendly staff 5) mouthwatering menu 6) fast service 7) best breakfast I ever had in Amman Cons: 1) could be pricey to some

I ordered food for home delivery . The person taking the order spoke good English. Food arrived in 25 min..very prompt and quick. The food was not tasty. I had asked for some extra Vegetables in the wild zaatar manousheh in multi cereal dough. I did not see anything extra. The dough was too thick and the filling was just... More

I love all their sandwiches and platters.. They have great bread and the quality of their ingredients is apparent when you taste their food. The place is very well lit and the atmosphere has become very family oriented. Currently one of my favorite breakfast destinations.. FYI NOT a good destination for anyone who's looking for 'gluten free food'

We were at zaatar w zeit tonight at 00:00 Am at midnight, I am really confused when the waiter came and told us please hurry up with your orders because our last order is after 15 minutes, and he mentioned that the employees bus will be waiting for them at 1:00 AM. Actually this is not the Lebanese standards that... More

I loved the restaurant from the outside, and the inside didn't disappoint either. The food was soooo good - we tried just about everything. Service was very good and the restaurant was clean. The staff are very friendly and quick. At the end of the meal, our waiter presented us with a gorgeous crepe filled with melted hazelnut milk chocolate... More

Valet service is the worst ever in Amman, they are very impolite, feels like you are facing a gang. I went three times there with my family. Very nice place, really great food, bit expensive, but hey, you get your money worth both in experience and quality of food. In all three times I had my share of valet trouble... More

This restaurant offers traditional jordanian food in more modern way. Although the restaurant is a bit pricy , but I liked all food offered especially Taboullah and Fataer which were irresistible. I advise to visit it if you like to have light and delicious dinner.
