“Cheap but very good food”
Reviewed January 31, 2013

We went to this restaurant twice during our stay in Wadi Musa: cheap and tasty food.
The first time we choose from the menu, the second one we had some sandwiches to take away.
For me finishing a dish from the menu (halabi kebab) with some appetizers has been a challenge, and I was really hungry :)
Their chicken shawarma sandwich is really huge and absolutely delicious, and so the falafel one.
The price/quality ratio of this place is really good and the staff is friendly and helpful.
My first choice to eat in Wadi Musa.

“It was a perfect place after a long walk in Petra site”
Reviewed January 22, 2013

The Restaurant offers range of food from Arab continent. After a long walk within Petra site, we were famished. we quickly washed up in hotel and rushed to find a place where we can quench our thirst and fill our stomachs. This restaurant was perfect. The food is amazing and the service is excellent.

“Excellent value”
Reviewed December 19, 2012

As lonely planet recommended, it is a great budget find in Wadi Musa. If you stay close to the Petra visitor's center, it's about 2km up (or 2 dinars by taxi each way). The falafel sandwich is delicious. Lentil soup is hearty. Chicken shawarma was okay. But all for 4 JOD and I had leftover for next day's lunch.

“Unassuming restaurant with great barbeque”
Reviewed December 9, 2012

Very reasonably priced restaurant in downtown Wadi Musa. A full plate barbequed chicken or lamb cooked in mid eastern flavours , with lots of fresh vegetables , and unlimited supply of bread for 5 JD. The ambiance is not great, but the food is.

“Good food”
Reviewed December 6, 2012

I ate here 3 times. The Halabi Kebab plate at 5 JD was rather tasty and filling. The kebab sandwich (2 JD) took some time to prepare. The shawarma sandwich was much quicker and cheaper (1.5 JD).
