I went to this restaurant based on recommendations from a few Jordanians. They warned me that this place is expensive. The food was perfect for my taste buds and I loved it. I tried hoummous, fatte, falafel and foul. Foul and fatte were superb and must try. Falafel is crispy and soft at the same time. A wonderful experience!

The food was very good and the service also. The restaurant was very clean. I enjoyed every bite of thier falafel and Hummus. I didn't like their "Fatteh" that much as the taste is normal and you can eat the same dish with amazing taste in other restaurant such as "Al-Kalha". The bathrooms located downstairs and I think it is... More

Food is not great but good, expensive and service is bad, I was waiting for my order more than 20 mins and it was just falafel, humus and broad bean. The place is great and clean. I have to mention that you have to pay 26% as a tax!

Taken here by my hosts in Amman. The falafel was good. It's always fun to watch the bread being made. However, I can't say that the hummus and other dishes were special in comparison to the large number of excellent choices that were available. Maybe a better place for breakfast or lunch.

I went there twice for breakfast, so now I clearly can say this place is over priced, the tea made of tap water and that can be tasted in the tea, I couldn't drink it. I believe people who rate this place high don't know other places with good hummous and falafel.

This is a resturant that serves arabic breakfast all day. The hummus fatteh foul falafel and the fresh pita bread are all great. Prices are higher than your normal falafel shop. Try hummus with pine nuts and saminah balady l.

Very well prepared food. Clean place. But you should expect it to be very crowded on Friday mornings specially that it offers dishes that are suitable for breakfast. It is much more calm in any other time. They offer a limited menu ( hummus, fool, felafel) but food is very tasty.

Thank Asma Q
