We hadn't read the Trip Advisor reviews and having arrived in the evening on a cold February night, we wanted somewhere warm and with good food. We were welcomed and a heater was provided and the menu, which is not so long, explained. The food was good, and my son enjoyed the mansaf and Mohammed explained how to eat it... More

Mohammed was extremely friendly and the food was very good. It was a little expensive, but I think that is just the area. Overall, a good spot.

I ordered the Shawarma meal, told them to hold all vegetables and dips. Only the shawarma and fries. They failed totally. The food is decent and season salt on french fries.

We had a wonderful experience here. I found the food delicious! I tried the traditional Jordanian dishes and the owner showed me how to eat it in the correct way. They then ended the meal by giving us a traditional Jordanian desert. They were all so friendly. I loved eating there and getting an true Jordanian dish! I would recommend... More

We came here by default! We were looking for another restaurant on TripAdvisor and, when we couldn't find that one, ended up at Al-Wadi as it is easy to find. Sitting on the patio was great because it was election day and tons of trucks/cars kept driving past with the music blaring, the flags flying, the people waving and the... More

The restaurant is charming and welcoming, and all staff are very good and polite. We prove the Mansaf, a typical very tasty dish!

Tried their Maklouba and it was good. My partner tried their Mix Grill and it was below average. They have a nice setting but the quality of food require a lot of improvement.

I visited on a random Tuesday and it wasn't busy. The ambiance is nice because it's on the street. But it took 20 minutes for someone even greet us and ask for our order. It took another 30 minutes for the appetizers to come. Our meal came out about an hour and a half later and the plate was So... More
