I was promised this would be good Syrian food - and it is ! Tasty, nice ambience, good service - definitely worth going for that authentic touch!

This is one of our favourite places to eat in Amman. The food is reasonably priced and and good quality. This is a good half way house between the slops you get downtown and the pretentious show in places like Tanoureen/Fakr al Din. The decor is lovely and the staff welcoming and attentive - a rare treat in Amman. This is our go-to place for when we need our fix of Levantine food.

If you feel like hanging out with UN, NGO and other foreign workers, THIS is the place! Apart from the people working in the service, everybody speaks English, or its Indian, Pakistani and north American dialects.
People met their girlfriends in Rwanda, boyfriends live in Paris, some proudly proclaim that they will be going to Iraq (or the Kurdish capital, to be precise, but technically Iraq, its true) and just come from Afghanistan, another tells that his Moroccan Arab dialect lets him speak to the Jordanian waiter.
Food is ok, average. Quite good, but not exceptional.
Prices are modest.
So, go there and hear the latest story from the oh so present aid circus in Jordan.
If you stay at the Belle Vue hotel, it's most conveniently located on the opposite side of the road. Just be careful when you cross.
