Authentic Jordanian food

This place is awsome. Friendly service and the nicest manager you will ever meet. Now for the food. I stopped by and ordered something small (Beef Stew) I asked if they had a plate that my grandmother used to make for me as a child (Stuffed Grape leaves) The manager told me that was a plate that... read more

Arrived to a dinner for 7 with friends, the owner/manager was exceptionally friendly and hospitable. Service was very quick and prices were very good. The mixed grill and the spread of dips and salads were fantastic. Some of our friends were going to be late even though we ordered for them, the owner offered to take their meals away and... More

My friend and I were on a hunt for traditional Jordanian food and after asking our driver for a recommendation we ended up here at Sand Hills and how happy we were that we did. Most importantly the food was absolutely delicious!! We had the Mansaf which is a lamb and rice traditional dish with pine nuts and a milk... More

Visited after a long day at Petra. We were greeted by Fekry who offered us a double serving of the Chicken Gallaya. It was excellent! Very good, attentive service and great value for money compared to the other places we ate.

My fiancé and I dined at Sand Hills restaurant a couple of nights ago after a busy day exploring Petra. Fekry was a fantastic host, spoke flawless English and recommended us the local dish Gallaya (sp.?) which was absolutely delicious. The menu was reasonably priced with both local and western options (if preferred). This was easily the best meal we... More

I don't understand why this restaurant is at #28. We had lunch there in our first day and went back for dinner that night. It served some of the best food we had in Jordan. They had arranged for me to do the final stages of Maklouba, the upside down chicken dish, tipping it out and garnishing it with herbs... More

We ate in the Restaurant several times, never disappointed. Fresh food great presentation and even had the owner come over for a chat. Great local history....away from center but close enough. Parking out side....great place to eat and watch people..... Worth visit and enjoying this place

Four of my friends and I came here after hearing a great review and we were not disappointed. The food is decadent and delicious. The owner is very friendly and we felt like we were family. He came by several times, first to show us how to eat our food and then to ask how it was. We ordered the... More
