Amazing foul / falafel / pickled veggies / fresh pita / hommus / and loads of local grown aged and pressed olive oil. Order it like the locals with some chai mañana (tea with mint). Amazing and flavourful. Made in bulk and cooked for hours - always fresh - always quality. Love this place.

Delicious fresh and hot falafel, bread and hummus. Service was friendly. While menu is limited and restaurant experience is mostly cafetaria style, try get a delicious dinner for 5 for US$25 someplace else!

Hands down this is my favorite breakfast place ever! I've tried falafel places in many restaurants in a couple of countries but this place always wins! Their service is quick and their seating spacious. Their variety of hummus and other breakfast dishes are a must try and their falafel is absolutely delicious!!! End your meal with their mint tea and... More

Went there for breakfast, very busy restaurant, well organised, not the best service, but good enough, food is delicious. Warning: they put a lot of olive oil, if you don't like it, let them know to reduce it. The food is simple and cooked fresh, adds to the tastiness of it.

The Abu Jbara restaurant is definitely a 'must do' experience' in Amman. Amazing flavours, freshest of ingredients and very quick service. Simply put Jordanian hospitality at its best. Tip: the menu is extremely well priced. Would I go back again? Yes, as many times as I come back to Amman!

The place in Madineh Monwsrsh place is very good . The food and the place are clean and enjoyable. Avoid in Fridays as it will be very crowded.

Thank Salma B
