Great place to grab a cheap and tasty shawarma or a nosh of falafel and hummous. Great little joint just up the street from the Petra entrance.

A convenient eat-in or take-away restaurant right in the center of Wadi Musa, with a cheerful, bright, and clean interior. Service was very good, and the portions of food were incredible given the price!

Very tasty food - and loads of it! It's always a good recommendation to see local people dining - and here there were lots. The food did not disappoint.
