This is one of the best restaurants in Aqaba. Its a local place, and i'm sure the owner has never heard of tripadvisor. Its the exact type of place travelers should know about because its not in the typical guide books.

We went there on our first day in Aqaba. If you arrive from Scandinavia, it is such a cultural chock, but a nice one! we were the only foreigners in the restaurant. Great. The food was quite allright, not a culinary experience though. The service was good, and the atmosphere nice and friendly.

Our driver, Sam, suggested this restaurant as he thought it had good food and an great atmosphere. He arranged a table for us all to sit together and the restaurant were very accommodating. They were very busy, but all our food came quickly. Sitting with local families was a great experience and the food was wonderful - spicy Indian style... More

Chicken Tikka is also worth of visiting, but be prepared to wait for a free table as it seemed to be very popular during evenings. Our meals had pretty mild spices making them ideal and tasty for a western customer. Highly recommendable! No beer.

The Chicken Tikka was so good and the Baryani. Their Arabic salad was delicious as well. May not be as spicy as most Indian restaurants, but it's the closest you can get to spicy Indian food in Jordan :p

The ultimate backpacker's eatery! Very good quality food at small prices, the signature chicken tikka is a meal to behold. The small restaurant is popular with locals, which is a quality guarantee for anyone who wants to savour local dishes. There is inside seating and a few tables on the sidewalk outside - very informal, down to earth, and good... More

At first we were hesitant to visit this restaurant thinking it will be very much like many curry restaurants in UK, but we decided to give it a go. And we weren't disappointed. The chargrilled chicken was very tender and juicy and their pickles very good as well. I also loved their yoghurt drink. Absolutely everything was amazing and great... More
