Chops were mostly fat and very small. Bread was cold. Chops tasted great though (however small portions for the price). Also check your bill. The server added items that we did not have.

My wife and me wanted to go to another place first, but when we found that closed our driver luckily drove us here. My wife said: this was the best food since we arrived in Jordan. I could only agree! Yes, it's directly at a main street. And yes, it's directly next to a mosque. BUT: that's oriental flair. We... More

If you can get the basic right you will do everything very well. This place by far offered some of the best BBQ i had tasted while on my trip to Jordan. The young kid at the front BBQ'ing knows his stuff and he will not be rushed for anything. We had been on the night tour of Patra, caming... More

Its a little restaurant up the hill which works as a butchery shop as well. So good fresh quality meat is guaranteed. Compared to other restaurants which may be located a bit closer to Petra main entrance this is definitely a better value for your money

Very well cooked meat and plenty of it. Mezze etc was again great had 4 between 2. Milkshake and lemon/ mint drink top notch. Lovely waiter chap (possibly owners son?). On side of road so noisy but regardless, authentic reasonable and we'd definitely go again

We came upon this place while exploring Wadi Musa shortly after arrival. Staff speaks limited English but shared menu and were friendly and welcoming. We were the only non locals eating that night but enjoyed the Jordanian specialties. This is an open air place and is not fancy at all. We had to wait a short time for a table... More

This place doesn't look like much from the outside but I would highly recommend it. The hummus was the best we had in Jordan, the bbq meats were excellent, so fresh and tasty. The staff were so helpful and really lovely. Have a lemon and mint juice - they're delicious! You must walk up the hill to get here from... More
