Atmosphere: 4/5 Hospitality :4/5 Services :4/5 Food :4/5 Price : Low Overall : A vegetarian place that has a couple of delicious appetizers to offer that make you full in no time. This place is typically a restaurant for the locals, but tourists would enjoy too. The only downside here is the heat, as it offers only outdoor seating.

Oh my God, it's the first time I enjoyed eating that much. You can choose between the homuse, Arabia flafel ,and beans. The service there is so good. Every body try it if you are there. Or you can pick a sandwich if you are in a Harry. Thanks for the good management. A really nice place.

Really tasty falafel sandwiches. Very fast service- we sat down in the alley by the restaurant and it was not as clean in surroundings but the food was good and filling. We ordered 12 sandwiches, drinks, broad beans ( fool) and pita bread for 8 JD!!!! So cheap!

Generous portions of hummus and other local vegetarian dishes are lovely presented in typical jordanian Setting. Very suitable for the Backpacker Budget. Go for the set combo.

We ordered everything they had and never regretted it. Amazing fetteh, falafel and much more. Does not get more local than this. We did not see any other tourists here (contrary to Al Shami, Papaya or Ali Baba). Best mezze in Aqaba

You know you are in the right place when the locals are patiently waiting for a shared table on the street. Best food I have had in Jordan all for 3JD. Across the street from the main mosque, below the Amer hotel.

There isn't an English menu, but the staff invited us into the kitchen to explain what the options were. They even gave us some free falafel to try, and it was the best falafel I've ever tasted.
