“An Amman institution”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 25, 2013 via mobile

In a small alley next to the Arab Bank. Look for the crowds. You get in line in the alley and when you approach the ticket window tell him what you want. You'll pay for it here and he'll give you a ticket. Go inside and give the guys your ticket and they'll give you your plate of sweet heaven! Two varieties of knafeh to choose from: if there are two or more of you, get both and share! Fantastic.

“Sweet heaven”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 10, 2013

Hole in the wall establishment in downtown Amman selling fabulous pastries. We had a plate full of 5 baklava-type cakes drenched in syrup, for only £1, eaten on a stool in the alleyway outside the shop. Great value and a great experience

“Delicious Knafeh”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 8, 2013

Either you have it at their site or you take it to eat later, this is one of the best places in Amman for the famous Kenafeh with cheese.

“A world best”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 1, 2013

No travel foody should leave Amman without making two stops at Habibah. When the locals frequent all the locales, you just know it must be special. Try the kanaafe. Saw grown men eat it as if it were pizza. Wish I could have taken some back home.
