I did not know what to expect but the cheese with honey was delicious. I do not eat dairy at home but I had no issues eating this cheesy dessert. There was perhaps a little too much honey for my taste, but it was very...good.More

On our last day in Jordan we took a food tour of Amman. Our last stop was at Habibah Sweets. I read about Habibah before but never visited. I'm very happy we did. Our guide handed us a delicious slice of heaven, Kunafa. Having tried...many variations in the middle east, this one was near the very top. The kataifi/chesse ratio was on point. It wasn't over the top sweet either. Just right. Next time in Amman we will surely stop at Habibah and sample some of their other sweets.More

Even though this place is known by Jordaniens and tourists alike the quality was incredibly. Staff was very friendly and stuffing us with free treats. I wanna eat it everyday without stopping. This sweet is from heaven

Even though this place is known by Jordaniens and tourists alike the quality was incredibly. Sweet heaven is availibly in various shapes, flavours and textures but most visitors are drawn in by the fresh and incredible Kunafa. Staff was very friendly and stuffing us with...free treats. Prices are fair and we highly recommend a visit - a must in Amman.More

Omg, we tried the Konafa, a type of baklava with cheese. To put it short, this regulated in a food coma. Despite sounding a bit strange, baklava with cheese is ridiculously good. The balance of mildly sweet with mildly salty is a pleasant surprise. The...toilet was pretty horrid.More

Recommended by two local friends for the best konafa in town..absolutely agree! Delicious and cheap :) For two coffees and 2 konafas (small piece is like a brick, good enough to ad 1kg to your total weight ;) we paid 2,90JOD (tried it somewhere else...as well, to compare: bad konafa, 8JOD ). Don't expect a fancy restaurant. Also: one of the dirtiest toilets I've been to in Jordan :(More

Queues out the door. Quite chaotic, we had to go with a local to know what to do, no system. But kunefe was delicious, they have 2 main types we tried both. Delicious and very rich so make sure you bring water.

I thought the reviews and ratings are exaggerated but once I tried it I couldn't agree more! This is one of the best sweets I have ever tried and I think there is no place where this tastes better than here at Habibah's.

As Knafeh lover without a doubt the best Knafeh I had during my stay in Jordan... And I tried quite a lot! In a small alley in the old part of Amman, a line, mostly locals, were placing their orders. You have to find a...seat somewhere outside on the sidewalk since you can't sit inside. Delicious Knafeh with a turkish coffee from the stall next door.More

Habiba sweets sells different range of Arabic/middle eastern sweets, but the specialty of this place is kneafe. one of the oldest types of Arabic sweets its a must after a lunch meal try both "ne3me" and "kheshne" you can feel that cheese taste melt in...your mouth, one of the best desert experiences ever. note that the store packs for travel every time i am in Amman i purchase 2kg of kneafe for travel.More

Line moved quickly and efficiently, the taste of the kanafeh was outstanding and served warm, ready to eat. No places to sit inside but plenty of space to stand/sit just outside - enjoy it on the paper plate after eating at Hashem next door

Worth a visit to join in with the locals, although it's not like a western sweet shop! You have to try Knafeh at Habibah but it wasn't to our taste! Worth the experience

Each night when i was wandering downtown i saw this long line of people outside a shop, each coming out with a paper plate with a dessert so i thought this must be good so i lined up too and came out with my own...portion on a paper plate. The desert was delicious and found out it was called KUNAFA, with a cheese base. Now i know why this little shop is so popular as it was one of the best desserts that i have ever tasted.More

Mainly "kunefe" and some "baklava" . Kunefe is is being offered in two different types: with cheese or cream. All re heavy on butter and fried in oil, but they are very tasty.

I do not think they accept credit cards. Better to go with JDs.
