We just popped in for a tea, thankfully, so I guess we spared ourselves from the more traumatic experiences. We asked for mint tea, and were brought ordinary black tea with a tiny twig of mint in it. We told the waiter "my friend, what you brought us was black tea, so sorry, but no tip for you", and he... More

All tourists seem to be taken here for lunch or other during their trip to Jerash. Please note: you must itemise what you want to eat and write the prices down. You do not get an itemised bill at the end - only a lump sum. Which is enormous, and there is no way of checking it. The food is... More

We stopped by this restaurant which seemed at the time a little touristy, but once you're inside, you'll notice that there are actually a lot of non-tourists wandering around and sitting and eating. The other best part about this place is that the service is REALLY good. We didn't wait long for much at this place where we'd be waiting... More

Trust me, after walking the ruins for 2 hours, you will want to sit and eat, this is the closest restaurant around! It is 10 JD. We sat next to the buffet area. Food consisted of a few simple salads, most of which are traditional sour ones; A big dish of lamb rice, which the lamb is a little overcooked;... More

at $10 per person this was not worth it. The food was not bad, but it was boring and geared towards the tour bus crowd.
