“Amazing”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 7, 2014

The owner of the restaurant recommended us an authentic Jordanian meal, which was so good! We also had greatest black coffee in the world with knafe (arabic dessert). We've met kind and nice people, enjoyed the meal and were surprised by the price at the end (in a good way :)) Highly recommended!

“Goat Cheese Pizza”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 6, 2014

I also come here for the goat cheese pizza, although last time I ordered it, it wasn't thin and crispy, but fluffy, thick, and chewy, like a ny pan style pizza. Was still good though. As for other dishes, they usually come in hearty portions fresh in oversized skillets, which is a good thing. Keep the portions good, and people will keep coming back for sure.

“Fantastic meal!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 27, 2014

Best meal of our trip to Jordan, the mixed grill was huge, each meat had different flavours and was delicious, the hommus was very nice and the fried haloumi delicious also. We sat outside and watched all the locals eating and smoking shisa, great place to people watch, and delicious food also! Highly recommend.
