We ordered takeway lamb kebabs, sambousik and kubbeh. The kebabs were juicy and tasty and not too salty, served with halved fried onions and tomatoes - 10/10. The service was helpful (the menu is in English and Arabic) and the food was ready in about 10 minutes despite us ordering just before sunset during Ramadan - the busiest time of... More

I was in Jordan for almost a week and ate several meals from here. I was never displeased with the food. The food was terrific every time. I wish we had this resturant in Charleston.
