Not sure if I missed something but I was expecting much more from this street. We walked all of it, there are cafes, shops, and restaurants throughout the whole street but I did not see it as alive as I would expect, maybe because i came at 9pm on Friday but I did not see much. We had dinner in Fatarti restaurant and it was really great, good prices and big portions.

In an otherwise metropolitan city Rainbow Street has a tourist charm. The street is vying to get into the famous street bracket but it has miles to go before it can be a global landmark. There are at best twenty to twenty five shops selling a range of touristy wares : mostly local products. Plenty of eating options, including an Indian restaurant called Rakoon. The road is open to traffic and it gets rough too with cars driving up a steep incline. Worth one evening definitely.

Great place to escape the hectic downtown area 10 minutes down the hill. There are various bars, restaurants and shops around. Some bars, like Books@café and Wild Jordan, have good views off the city.

Rainbow Street has definitely changed since 77-81, the years i used to live in Amman. Before there was just the Rainbow Supermarket and the Rainbow Cinema. Now there are many restaurants, bars, souvenir shops but the locals tell me that Jabal Weibdeh is gradually becoming more popular than Rainbow street. However it is worth visiting the souvenir shops to hunt for your souvenirs, and trying one of the restaurants in the evening. During the day there were not too many people around so it is better to come in the evening.

This is a street extending from Jabal Amman 1st circle. From several places along this street one can have a panoramic view of the city center and the old town. 50 years ago it used to be the main street in Amman's most lavish neighborhood. Currently it is a tiled street with restaurants and cafes on both sides. The best time to experience this street is during the afternoons and evenings of the months of April to November. There are also some souvenir shops on this street that sell local handcrafts.

I drove through rainbow street, a lively bustling place. I cannot find a place to review Amman in general and hence am posting it here. Amman is such a unique place for the region and many probably do not realize it. It’s safe, modern and accessible. First off unlike what I found on many online resources, visa on arrival is very convenient and they accept credit cards. Due to past info, I thought we needed only cash and went through money exchange and got ripped off. Get money from any atm after. As a city, it’s maintained really clean and seems very organized. It’s a great place to visit. They have great food, very friendly and hospitable people. Only reality check was that your American dollar is not as strong to be able to spend lavishly.

We stumbled upon this great little falafel spot as we were walking down Rainbow Street. We bought a small pack of six falafel balls just to hold us down until we about where we wanted to go for dinner and just so that we could taste it. It was a bit dry and slightly undercooked perhaps if we weren’t rushing the guy it would’ve come out well done.

This is about 1 KM street full with different types of restaurants and variety of food.
At the beginning there is fast food burgers and nice cafes.
If you pass by the Arab bank to the you will find Mijana resturant.
After that pass the British council and you will find famous Falafel restaurant AlQuds.
Walking more to for sightseeing and also to visit Sofra resturant and wild Jordan.

If you're looking for a nice selection of restaurant choices and shops, this is the place to go. I was pleasantly surprised by the variety of food choices, from little shops, to coffee roasters to nice international/eclectic restaurants. It is a hilly area, so if your not a big walker, you might want to take a taxi.

I think we may have missed the idea behind the build up of Rainbow Street. Yes, it’s a long street, however, what you go there for stops halfway. And the street is pretty much made up of souvenir shops and restaurants, not much else. The bar in the picture is the exception.
