“Great Service, Great Food; you can't ask for anything more”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 13, 2012

We stopped by this restaurant which seemed at the time a little touristy, but once you're inside, you'll notice that there are actually a lot of non-tourists wandering around and sitting and eating. The other best part about this place is that the service is REALLY good. We didn't wait long for much at this place where we'd be waiting forever at a typical Jordanian restaurant. Normally, service is TERRIBLE.

The style of food was typical Middle Eastern, kind of Lebbanese. It was really really good. I had the lamb along with the normal appitizers and so on. I really liked the baba ghanoush in particular, it was really good. Their homemade pita bread was the side of a small pizza back home, warm and tasty!

I'd go back for sure were I to come back to Jerash.

“touristy food”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 21, 2010

Trust me, after walking the ruins for 2 hours, you will want to sit and eat, this is the closest restaurant around!
It is 10 JD.
We sat next to the buffet area.
Food consisted of a few simple salads, most of which are traditional sour ones;
A big dish of lamb rice, which the lamb is a little overcooked;
and then some chicken dishes and another beef dish, which is 100% fully cooked.
Go for the chicken legs which were less dry than the chicken breasts.
also there was some dessert which I didn't try.

Not exactly the best food or service, but a 10 JD buffet seems a standard at most tourist locations.

“not worth the money”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed August 29, 2010

at $10 per person this was not worth it. The food was not bad, but it was boring and geared towards the tour bus crowd.
