What a fabulous meal in an unexpected place! Every time we visit Madaba we are sure to visit Darna for a lunch my whole family enjoys. Our favorites are the flavorful lamb shawarma and the tasty and fresh cheese or vegetable manaqeesh. The owners are...very friendly and make you feel at home. I wish there was a similar restaurant in Amman.More

We got takeaway from this restaurant several times during our stay in Madaba. The staff are very helpful and can speak good English which was useful as they don't have an English menu. We had a great chat with one of the men who worked...there as we waited for our food to be made. The wraps ('sandwiches') are really delicious and cheap, the pizza is OK (maybe a little under-cooked). Would definitely go back again.More

The best Shawarma I’ve ever eaten! Also had the Dayna pizza as well as the fries. Darna does it right! The people are so friendly, the customer service was fantastic and the food is delicious. Easy to find Darna’s big red sign right by St...George Church and the shops.More

Our hotel was walking distance and our driver had told us about this restaurant before, it's good pizza quickly served, it doesn't have sitting place, so maybe it's easier to carry pizza

if you’re going to Madaba you must stop here! This family owned business will not disappoint. Just thinking about it makes my mouth water. They have the most amazing traditional food I’ve tried and the pizza is the type of quality you’d find in downtown...New York City. They are very friendly and helpful in giving you advice on where to shop as well.More

Great food and great prices! They have fed our group multiple times and everyone has enjoyed it :) Salah (one of the owners) was welcoming and personally made sure we had everything we needed. We will be back!
