Reviewed August 24, 2012

Walk past Ali baba (rip off tourist tap), keep waling 2 minutes and up a small arcade. You'll see the sign. Dinneris upstairs if there is space. Food is great and the price is very cheap.

“Cheap restaurant with good food and really nice owner”
Reviewed May 22, 2012

The Al-Shami restaurant is located in Aqaba near the Suk in a small alley. The food was really good there and very cheap. We paid 11 JD for two persons including drinks and couldn't eat all of it. The owner is a very nice and friendly guy and the service was really quick. It doesn't look to nice though, also the alley where it is located, but it is clean and worth a visit if you want to have good local food for a low price in a friendly atmosphere.
