I didn‘t expect any nice food on the main tourist street. After wandering up and down the 5-6 restaurants we decided to dine in the oriental restaurant.
The service was very relaxed and a bit slow but he understood all our requests and the food was excellent.
We had the greek salad and a Zinger sandwich.
Prices were in our eyes ok and not that expensive compared to other adventures we had in Jordan.
We recommend this restaurant and wish you bon appetite.

Thank Rangimania

Both the food and customer service were outstanding! A great way to end the day after exploring Petra.

Great food. Near entrance to the ruins. Not much to look at but worth it for good food. The babaganoush is excellent.

We arrived quite late but the owner accepted to serve us which was very friendly. We ordered baba ganoush, lamb grill and lamb in a traditional pot which was very tasty!

Gorgeous food with friendly, warm service.

we ordered stuffed eggplant, tabbulah, baba ghanoush and hummus to start, perfect size plates for sharing, all came with lots of free pitta bread and tasted sooo good!
I had galayet for my main which was delicious and my boyfriend had the mixed grill which came with chips. He ate every morsel!
It is priced averagely for a meal here in Petra and cheaper than our hotel was offering (and included a much bigger variety than our hotel.)
The manager came out to talk to every guest and checked we were all enjoying our food.

If we visit Petra again we will be back and will recommend to anyone visiting!
