I have been going there for over 20 years. The food is still great. A little pricey though but worth it.

Went there with couple of business colleagues. What a spread of food. The Amman bread are the best, and surprisingly veg options are as exotic as non-veg ones. Terrific!

We ordered takeway lamb kebabs, sambousik and kubbeh. The kebabs were juicy and tasty and not too salty, served with halved fried onions and tomatoes - 10/10. The service was helpful (the menu is in English and Arabic) and the food was ready in about 10 minutes despite us ordering just before sunset during Ramadan - the busiest time of... More

Did not taste bad, but not worth the money spent. Food lacked a chefs touch. I ordered many items. Fried shrimp were burnt, Pigeon was great but plain, food was dry...needs sauce option. Salads were separately charged, mansaf tasted ok but meet was clearly frozen, and Laban was salty. Fries were good, tabouli was too sour and lacked anything else... More

Ward Kabab is a very pleasant respite. We ate numerous meals here during our weeks in Amman. Both the lamb and the chicken kababs were "to write home about." The lamb chops were generous and tasty. Garlic cream was fantabulous. Pita was fresh, light and fluffy almost reminescent of a Mexican sopapilla. Seasonings were generous, but not overwhelming. The staff... More

I was in Jordan for almost a week and ate several meals from here. I was never displeased with the food. The food was terrific every time. I wish we had this resturant in Charleston.

Description
Ward and Kabab Restaurant is one of the leading Middle Eastern restaurants in Amman. It opened its doors to the public in the Summer of 1997. Located in the Wakalat Street, which is considered a hub for international clothing lines. The street went through numerous transitions throughout the years.Recently, the terrance has gone through a major transformation, which made it one of the street’s major attractions. During the summer months, the terrace can seat up to 50 people. The restaurant has a seating capacity of 100 people, with a designated area for non – smokers. It specializes in genuine Lebanese cuisine, offering a wide variety of authentic lebanese Mezzes, grilled kebabs as well as local specialities such as Mansaf and Qedra made with the highest quality of ingredients. On top of the Restaurants loyal client base, we have been fortunate to host several prominent and famous figures, ranging from politicians, writers to actors as well as performers.
