“Great falafel at great price!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 25, 2013

Very tasty food. Friendly chef made the falafel fast so no need to wait long. He gave free samples because he wanted to welcome tourists. Jordan's King and Queen ate there, got pictures hanging in the restaurant. Great price at 1JD.

The price and the food. Real Jordanian food, Falafel (the spicy ones with sesame seeds on the top were the best) hummus, tomatoes and mint salad, served with a pitta and washed down with mint tea. Excellent value..meal for two 10 euros...

“Never had such amazing humus in my life and never will till I come back here”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 22, 2013 via mobile

Humus with fresh tomato and onion ... Amazing and out of this world. Can't enjoy the same store bought crap in Canada now. Simple and basically was served at a plastic table with plastic sheet table cloths in the street. Prices more than reasonable. Advantage to this is that high maintenance, demanding people will skip this place hopefully, leaving a great atmosphere with happy, easily pacified people like me.

“The Best Cheapest Vege place in Amman”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 10, 2013

I liked everything. They smilingly accommodated 17 hungry adults in the twinkling of an eye. The food was fab. (nothing fancy, just really, really good). Full tummies and happy people, many of whom, in the course of 5 days, went back there whenever they could. The King of J. eats there too though not when we were in residence. Well he can easily afford the 3-4 dinar bill...
