Habibah has very successfully maintained their long heritage & maintained their reputation. I visited the store on Madinah Al Munawwara Street and bought sweets to take abroad. They provided nice packaging. The quality of the sweets was excellent and best of all there was signs of cleanliness and hygiene all over the shop which I really admired. Their Bakhlava is a must try for anyone visiting amman !

This is a must - do in Jordan! We went to the main Habibah ( the big one ) and it was amazing - the variety and amount of sweets to salivate over! Lots of assistance with the choices. We came back each night to try different sweets, and we equally pleased each time.

This little spot lived up to the reviews on this site and in the travel books. Service was friendly and some local clients helped me to understand the choices, and the ordering process--so it was a fun social experience as well as a culinary delight!

Travel and Leisure recently named Habibah’s knafeh one of the best desserts in the world (http://www.travelandleisure.com/articles/best-desserts-around-the-world/5). It is definitely worth seeking out. Finding it, however, is somewhat of a difficulty. Since there are multiple locations, looking for the Arab Bank is not always the most helpful. We found the location on King Hussein Street, I believe, which is near Hashem Restaurant (across the street, a few building down (?)). It is on the main street, not in an alleyway. No one spoke English (except for one guy), so we definitely had problems ordering. However, after blindly choosing the “soft” version (over the “hard” version), we were rewarded with an interesting, but tasty dessert. That location had an upstairs area with seating. The area is somewhat gritty; definitely the “real” Amman.

In a small alley next to the Arab Bank. Look for the crowds. You get in line in the alley and when you approach the ticket window tell him what you want. You'll pay for it here and he'll give you a ticket. Go inside and give the guys your ticket and they'll give you your plate of sweet heaven! Two varieties of knafeh to choose from: if there are two or more of you, get both and share! Fantastic.
