The best hommus, foul and falafel in town. Very helpful staff and quick service. The bread is also fantastic. But it is a bit expensive for a traditional food.

For a proper local meal of hummos and falafel, this is the place. Along with a few variations, this is the main thing that is available, and it is all delicious,which is why it is a hot favourite with the locals- especially the Fatteh. All the food is freshly prepared and served. There are no trimmings to the presentation, so it is very basic, but the price is extremely reasonable, and the staff always obliging and friendly.

Abu Jbara is one of the best Hummus and Falafel restaurants in Amman. I like to visit Al-Medinah Al-Munawareh branch to eat there with the family.

Good Service. Good Food. Nice Atmosphere. A little expensive for a Hummus and Falafel restaurant in Amman. Hard to park beside the restaurant as it is located on a main street.

I usually go there with friends and family. It costs around 20JD for 4 persons (7$ per person).

I go to this restaurant every time I am in Amman because of the very delicious hommus and falafel they serve. Very spacious and clean. Sometimes we had to wait couple of minutes for a free table because it was full.
Additional plus is the free homemade bread, brought directly from the oven.
What I also like about this place is that is not the typical tourist restaurant, instead it is mostly visited by locals.
