Had lunch at Hashem on recent trip to Amman, this is a hidden gem. Located in the old city, but fortunately our local guide took us there. By far, this is the best Falafel we have ever had. Very original home made recipes, simple menus...More

This amazing place offers you full table with hummus, falafel, fresh vegetables and tea for less then 3 dinars per person. You won't find better price and better quality!

Great place for people watching in Amman and a great lunch. Vegetarian, with excellent falafel and hummus. The best hummus and falafel in Jordan. The hummus was so creamy and falafel was light and flavorful. Cash only.

According to their website it is open 24/7 but if you're not sure you can call them before going in. People go there for breakfast, so anytime after 7am sounds pretty safe to me.
