Known as the best grill in Amman, Um Khalil does not disappoint. For about $40USD you are served twice as much food as a normal person can eat. The starters are many and varied. Undoubtedly the smoothest humus I have ever had, wonderfully spicy pickled...More

We visited this restaurant twice, though only intended to go once. However the Yahala was empty and forbidding, so we went back to the Lebanese House. The food was good if not exceptional, the wine nice and the waiters were attentive.

The ruins of the Greco -Roman city of GERASA are located in Jerash which is one of the largest and well preserved sites of Roman architecture in the world outside of Italy. We are proudly located in this ancient city that bursts with history, we have almost become a historical monument amongst the ancient ruins. No one can mention Jerash without thinking "Um Khalil" they are intertwined!
