We got Tender Lamp chops, delicious kebap and fine hummus, yoghurt and cucumber for a fair price. Double check the fatura as per the advice provided by a previous review. Friendly server regardless. With pleasure again

I stopped in to this restaurant after a full day of saying "no thank you" in Petra. The staff here was very kind, and the food was great! I had a vegetable sandwich (in Pita, of course), and it was one of the best I have had in Jordan. I also had the yogurt beverage and knafeh. All was great!... More

The food here is very good and the staff make every effort to keep the customer happy. "For you yes" seems to be their slogan and do all they promise. I had an excellent mixed grill for JD6 no hidden charges A bonus on a cold night is the warmth provided by the barbeque.

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
