Reviewed September 27, 2013

Great places for sandwiches and drinks. The Al-Arabi Cocktail (banana milkshake with fruit juices) is fun and tasty !! Falafel sandwiches fresh, hot and tasty.

“Recommended by Jordanians”
Reviewed September 17, 2013 via mobile

We met two Jordanians who both recommended this place. It's basic decent food and a simple place to get a quick bite to eat.

“Delicious after a long day at Petra!”
Reviewed August 15, 2013

We arrived at around 7pm, after we had checked 2 other restaurants and found them closed! Its a very homey-like restaurant with friendly Egyptian staff. We ordered Shawerma meals, which was quite filling and tasty. The dish consisted of home-made-like fries, Hummous, Salad, Falafel and ofcourse Shawerma (chicken wrapped with some sauce, pickles and greens in bread) all for just under 10 JD's (generally food is very expensive in Jordan, i dont remember the exact amount, but it was relatively cheap) One of the waiters brought up a plate of free chicken slices!

Only downfall - service is a little slow! but I would recommend giving it a try overall!

“Very basic and simple, but tasty food.”
Reviewed July 10, 2013

sometimes you need to skip the 'restaurants' and go for nice local simple prepared food. well.... this is the right spot to go to. they make simple local food which is very tasty and very cheap. you can keep on eating this stuff the whole time and ask for anything and the staff will accommodate you. If you are in Petra this is a must visit.
