Everything tastes good and it was well served. Server Mustapha was especially great. The only thing they need is a non smoking section.

We visited Al Quds restaurant with a recommendation from a Jordanian local friend and we were not disappointed! The Mansaf is really good! Made with tender lamb meat but with a bit of fat, a yellowish rice and a yogurt-based sauce! A must-try
