“very authentic”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 11, 2014

The sweets in this restaurant are very delicious ask for his Konafa, if you don't like yours to be extremely sweet then ask them not to add syrup to yours, usually they do unless you asked them
there are many branches to this restaurant, the newest is in Al-madena street...the sitting is gorgeous especially during the summer they have outdoor sitting
but the food is not as great as the oldest branch the one that was established 70 years ago in the downtown Amman, although it is very small and there is no place to sitt but it is always busy with customers who only come to have his especial most wonderful Konafa. One last word if you are family with childdren maybe the newst branch is better for you as in the new branch they serve all kind of sweets that will suit any kids on any age

“Sweet”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 23, 2014

The sweet here has a different taste, it's mostly has the taste to be unique.

The Kenafah which they make here is the best Kenafah that you can ever taste in your life.

One recommendation to you,is to go to the downtown (wast albald) branch, where you can taste the original kenafa. But not the modernized one

“Best kunafah ever!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 21, 2014

Great and delicious fresh Arab deserts. In this always crowded restaurant, you can find one of the best kunafahs I have ever eaten.

“Sweet Heaven”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 19, 2014

We ended up at Habibah sweets just by accident as we were walking down the street and noticed some fresh sweets being made. We stepped and purchased some fresh sweets but the owner warned us to finish them within 24 hours. Back at our hotel I realized that this was the same shop I had read wonderful reviews on tripadvisor. So, next day we went back and bought two big boxes of their non-perishable sweets (within I day) to take home with us. If you have a sweet tooth try to visit Habibah sweets at least once.

“If you like sweets the must to try”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 16, 2014

Very tasty and specialized in Arabic sweets. There is Kafkah or a name like that which they are serving it warm and containing cheese which was really good.
