Stopped in from the heat. Had the Indian Masala. Wow, tasty, spicy, wonderful. Nice staff and made to feel welcome. Would recommend highly.

This is a great pub. Wednesday night it was busy with a great atmosphere and attentive service. The local blonde beer was pretty good and the draught Amstel was good also. I would happily come here regularly

I can't be objective about Houston's - different people want different things from a pub - but it's my favorite watering hole in Amman. It's cozy, the staff are wonderfully idiosyncratic, it's never loud there (except maybe on karaoke night, which I scrupulously avoid) and...More

We thoroughly enjoyed reading your review. Thank you very much for visiting us and we hope to see you again. We certainly did not agree with the previous management's way of naming dishes ;)

Have had a few evenings here. Food was not great, but if you're at Houston's you're principally there to drink. In which case stick to bottled beers; the one time I tried the draft Carakale it was distinctly off - they clearly don't clean the...More

Food was among the best we had in Jordan, high quality and tasty. Very kind staff, never loud, very clean. We liked the relaxed attitude towards alcohol: they sell it but it isn't the main thing, as much as you can also find families! Recommended!

We went for lunch it was quite which we prefer. Good service food was nice. Salad was huge!! I enjoyed a pint of Jordan’s only Microbrewery beer they feature. Fantastic happy hour prices from 6-9 so highly recommend a visit during this time.

We came here for dinner and drinks! We were staying at the Kempinski and didn’t want to pay for the expensive food there. You can’t beat their happy hour prices for beer and their food was good too!
