Traditional food at a great price! The most wonderful restaurant experience and most well known in the downtown area. The meal is only about 6 USD. Hot bread, foul (beans) houmous, salads... excellent service and delicious food!

Very good and cheap one. Just only they did not have the menu to read and no tissue paper. The food is excellent vegetarian (I guest, I did not see the meat there). But it has a good taste.

One of the iconic places in downtown Amman. Their food is good and prices are good too, they've been in the business for decades.

I can see why people rate hashem so highly. There is a nice atmosphere, the food is prepared hygienically and tastes okay.

For those reasons we returned for a second night. However, on this second night, we were charged more for ordering the same food (7 dinar went to 8 dinar for two people for the vegetarian). I had this changed back to seven and they meekly protested, suggesting their guilt in overcharging tourists.

Further, as soon as we finished, we were ushered out. Didn't feel good.

Probably a 2.5/5.

Food in Hashem (downtown) is poor even by Jordanian standards. But my main issue is with the hygiene standards, or rather the complete lack of them. If you go to the toilet (that customers and staff alike use) you will see what I mean. There are no proper washing facilities and these people are handling your food. There are much better places serving similar styles of food often at lower prices.
