Location and contact

The ruins of the Greco -Roman city of GERASA are located in Jerash which is one of the largest and well preserved sites of Roman architecture in the world outside of Italy. We are proudly located in this ancient city that bursts with history, we have almost become a historical monument amongst the ancient ruins. No one can mention Jerash without thinking "Um Khalil" they are intertwined!

This is a great option of Arabic food. Both locations are indicated. Jarash has the view as a big plus, and Amman is really well decorated and the same good service and food.

I had one meal here when I was working nearby. Everything was excellent. They also serve beer. The only negative is that it is not cheap.
