Choose the Jordanian/ Arabic meals as they are fabulous! Cheap and cheerful and very filling. Add a Turkish coffee and a couple of delicious baklava pastries and you've eaten like a king!

Found the food to be decent. Not sure what everyone is complaining about. We ordered, were served promptly and our food came out delicious. 8 Jordanian for large size 'sandwiches' or what Aussies call doner kebabs and 2 drinks. About $10US.

Tried their Shish Tawook and Arabic Shawerma, the food was good and well presented. I just did not like their Fattoush, the tomatoes were not fresh. The grilled items are recommended.

Good place to have dinner. Many locals are stopping by to grab some take away. Fresh food, mostly shawarma and Arabic starters like hummus, mutabbal, tabouleh. Open late in the evening. Highly recommended by the people from Wadi Musa

We ordered sheesh kebab, shawarma plate, lentil soup and a hummus. The quality was average..the shawarma chicken was dry and the sheesh kebab lamb meat was hard to chew. The lentil soup and hummus were nice and kept the dinner from becoming a failure. Total bill was for 17 JD.

After a major hike in Petra, I came here to have dinner before going to sleep. My hotel was last than 100meters from here. I got the mixed grill, lentil soup and coke. Soup was little too watery but good. The mixed grill was very good. I paid in cash. A little expensive but not too much.

Quick service, limited menue, more a type of snack-bar for a quick bite. They serve mostly fast food, but it's nice to eat if this is what you're looking for. Not very cheap for the food you get.

Thank feijeD
