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.

Another excellent restaurant downtown Aqaba

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

I enjoy lunch in Chicken Tikka with Ahmad Tomah. Food was delicious. One thing what bothered me was woman next table. She was staring me so badly way but I didnt let her disturb my lunch.

I like it, I'd eaten there so many times and not once I had to complain about one thing, amazing place and always full, really always full, everything in the menu is good, they had one thing before and I wish they can bring it back, the menu was written in so many languages and I liked that even though...

Chicken Tikka is a nice alternative to all the standard Jordanese restaurants in Aqaba. Not a fastfood place as mentioned before but a local atmosphere. Chicken Tandori was good and the Pura bread with garlic dip is recommended. Mains are 4-5 JD.

This is by far one of my favorite restaurants in Aqaba. I eat here pretty much every third day when in Aqaba. Super delicious chicken, just love it!
