About
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!

Had a nice dinner here. The place is more chique than the other places I ate in, but still quite relaxed. I had a fantastic soup, tasty mushrooms, yummy salad and delicious kebabs. Also received an excellent yoghurt / pistache desert. Service was professional but...not very personal. Price: more expensive than most other places, almost European level.More

The Lebanese um khalil restaurant located in two locations the old restaurant located in Jarash a small city north of Amman and it serve Lebanese dishes, the atmosphere is lovely and the surrounding is nice and relaxing, the food is delicious and it is usually...full of locals and tourists. I know this restaurant since thirty years ago, the second branch is located in Amman which is fairly new and I did not visit it. I advice everybody to visit and taste the lovely food with Arak a local drink.More

Amazing food in a beautiful restaurant. Great service. We tried lots of different food and were impressed with everything. We went as part of a group tour of the area. Our group of 18 was no problem at all for the staff. I wish they...had a restaurant near where I live in the states.More

It was Friday .. so we are talking about a full reserved restaurant. I know working under pressure won’t bring the best from the working team.. but that’s what make the difference between good and excellence! As a food, it’s tasty and good.. The Kabab...may be the best I’ve eaten since a while. As a service.. it needs more improvement.. Very slow, and even not all dishes we ordered came.. which let us cancel some of the appetizers that never came! When I enter such restaurant and I know I’ll pay more than any other restaurants in Jerash, I understand that I’ll have a good service.. but what happened is completely the opposite! Again and again I’ll repeat it.. the food especially the Kabab is great.. but the service comparing to the price is below the expectations!More

This upmarket place is a splurge restaurant serving Lebanese style food. It is not cheap. We opted for the set menu at 20 JD per person, but it was far too much. The food was really great but we could not eat half of it...due to the quantity. Each dish served to us was lovely, no doubt and the hummus was the best we had in Jordan, anywhere. You can order a la carte and in hindsight this is a better way to go, but even then each dish is expensive compared to many other places serving comparable food. If you crave good tasty food, but not at these prices there are better local options.More

The restaurant is a hidden gem. Would highly recommend the Kibbeh, beetroot salad and the vine leaves for appetisers. The mixed grill (particularly the chicken) was delicious. The restaurant has ample parking and is great for book groups. Staff are very friendly and attentive.

Excellent food, we had a grilled mix and lamb tongue. Delicious pudding for a desert. Great coffee. Service was kind and attentive but not pushy. Highly recommended.
