Again, a recommendation from our travel agent. This was better the Ali Baba... and less expensive. Two entrees and 2 bitter lemons was 15 JD. The grilled lamb was wonderfully seasoned and the grilled lemon/garlic shrimp superb. They comped us an appetizer of 3 dips with Pita and vegetables as well as mint tea at the end. service was great.... More

We ate here a couple of times and enjoyed everything we ordered, and the little complimentary dishes they offered. My son found one of the dishes a bit too spicy,so they took it away and came back with something milder very quickly. The upstairs balcony is good for watching the coming and going from the main Mosque across the road

Have been to this restaurant several times and I am always pleased with the quality of the food. The waiters have always been friendly to me and I really appreciate the unassuming atmosphere. When I first visited Aqaba this was the #1 restaurant and I can't see why it's position would have fallen at all. Keep it up guys.

To be honest, we didn't find the amazing personnel described. But the restaurant is authentic Jordanian, with locals eating at the tables nearby,Arabic music from the overhead TV... Meats were tasty, salads fresh, waiter did his best with English and we all managed fine. Great way to sample local food . I recommend.

Visited Aqaba with my friends in March 2017. This restaurant has amazing food, great staff, and cheap prices! We liked it so much, we returned the next day. I had the Mixed Grill - a mix of chicken, meat, and kebab, and my friend had the chicken tikka. Both were delicious! It's right behind the big mosque and up a... More

If you're looking for traditional Jordanian food without a huge price tag you must try Al Shami. Complimentary mixed dips (Baba Ganoug to die for!) With flavourful rice dishes. My favourite is the shish tawook chicken it is a perfect meal for someone new to the Jordanian food scene. Great for quiet meal for friends and couples. I highly recommend... More
