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.

Simple, quick, delicious - recommended

Lovely food, efficient service, great lemon + mint juice (as everywhere in Jordan). We loved the puri breads! Yes, they were a bit greasy but made a nice change from flatbreads. (Kids said they tasted like doughnuts.) Shish tawook and chicken biryani went down very well with our kids. Nice salad... read more

The absolute tastiest, juiciest, tender pull off the bone chicken I have ever experienced. The menu prices are rock bottom, but the amount of food is so much that my wife and I can only order 1 meal from the menu and we split it. Service was fantastic. We were able to see the employees preparing the food and they... More

Been here for dinner and you get large portions. The meat is very tender and nicely marinated. Friendly staff. Would go here again.

We were the only Westerners in here which is a good sign - it was full of locals all enjoying the indain twist on BBQ chicken. The Chicken Tandoori Biryiani was excellent and so was the Chicken TIkka (with chips for some reason) plus the puri bread is good albeit a little greasy (like most Jordanian food). he best thing...

I've been here without lying about 50 times and I love it every time! The chicken is so good it's crazy. The restaurant is usually quite full but that's only a testimony to the good food. If in Aqaba you should eat here at least once. Cheap and good. I love it!

Second to Al-Shami, but not by much! Delicious food, popular with locals too. Whatever you order, make sure you wash it down with some polo (lemonade with mint) - perfect pairing!

This is a real small restaurant. Don't be taken back that you might be the only persons dining there. In Aqaba, the locals eat late for dinner. The puri bread is excellent. Good lentil soup also. You can get your chicken either spicy hot or not.
