Lovely meal and service. Good price. Very enjoyable evening. We went upstairs to get away from traffic fumes and cigarette smoke

This place is packed with locals and the prices are reasonable compared to those places closer to the Petra entrance. Don't expect it to be "fast".

This is a busy place, especially downstairs, although they have a lot more seating upstairs. The restaurant is nice and clean, and the staff are very courteous. The food is good, reasonably priced and they serve quite big portions!
