“Damn Good Falafel”
Reviewed January 2, 2013

You haven't tried falafel until you've eaten here, says one popular travel guide. And this is 100% true. This is probably the best falafel I've ever had. That's it.

It is about food only, do not look at Hashem as a restaurant, this is more fast food kiosk at the corner with possibility to sit on plastic chairs. Service was OK and you do not expect more from this kind of place.

“Absolutely disgusting! Great location though”
Reviewed December 31, 2012 via mobile

I don't understand how did this place make it in tourist books.

It lacks hygiene! My tea had a dead fly in it! And the cup was barely cleaned.

They have another branch near mojamaa jaber which is slightly better ( hygiene wise).

The food is okay, i have had better foul, hummos and falafel in Amman.

The good thing about it is its location downtown. And its opening hours.

““Best hummus in Town””
Reviewed December 21, 2012

Amazing hummus, sweet tea, bread, kinds of falafels. Loved the sweet tea
This place is simply unmissable, It's located in downtown Amman one of the most popular places in Jordan. It's famous enough to reach. You will be lucky if you get a small table.. It's not one of this fancy touristic restaurants,

“Not healthy at all.”
Reviewed December 19, 2012

Very discusting food & service, the restaurant in downtown itself is a place of dirts and a bad smell of the sewage which comes from the Sewage Drainage inside the restaurant, add to this point, they use thye cheapest materials in their preperation, Falafel Oil is Balck; they use the same oil a hundred times daily, the waiter have a ver bad smell and appearance, the cashier is like one of the criminals with his ugly voice and look, and finally its prices are expesive like the 5 stars hotels prices.

I don't recommend it for any body to visit this place at all.
