Delicious food no dought, beautiful place with nice decorations but it was over rated, difficult to reach for tourist from out side Jordan. And very very expensive comparing to other places with same quality. My bill was 45.2 dinars for only 2 main dishes and...a bottle of water( which they forced me to have) The worst thing they did which was so not professional is that when i paid my 45.2 bill i gave the waiter 50 he gave me back 3 dinars instead of 4.8 because they toke 1 dinar for charity without asking for my permission and they didn't gave back the small change 0.8 !! they should not do such a thingMore

Excellent choice for having dinner if you're close by Rainbow Street. Nice meals, good service all in a very nice vintage mansion.

Lovely place for special occassions. Some dishes are simply amazing like the fresh tabouleh and grilled cheese but other dishes (especially meat dishes) didn't live up to the expectation. However this place wins on ambiance and setting alone. A bit on the pricey side.

On Saturday July 4th we had lunch @ Sufra Restaurant Amman The appetizers where excellent & very delicious but to my unexpected expectations the Mansaf & the Kunafeh were the worst you can ever taste We were surprised that those two items were tasteless &...not delicious at all The mixed grill was good but probably they use more tenderizers than they should Although this was not our first visit & they are known to be great but I wonder why we were not lucky on that day Anyway I hope that they will improve next timeMore

Booked dinner here as recommended in the guide book. The food was really tasty and I enjoyed the national dish Mansaf. The lamb just fell apart. Service was great. The food was reasonably priced - less than £40 for 3 courses and soft drinks for...2- but this is probably a bit pricier than other local restaurants. The restaurant has a nice atmosphere and a welcoming decor. Definitely advise booking as it always seems busyMore

The restaurant is very nice with a wide menu of local food. Tried the mansaf, hummus and a salad with a fresh lemon mint juice. Hot bread coming out from the kitchen all the time. All delicious. The service very attentive. Definitely recommended.

We went on a Friday evening at 6pm and didn't wait for a table (nor had a reservation) and were seated right away.
