Murphy's recently opened its outside garden and it is a garden. Lots of green around you, something that we don't have too much of in Amman. The atmosphere is chill. The food is good. The beer is nice and cold. Highly recommended for a relaxed outing with friends.
So last week was the Chinese New Year (its year of the Dragon; by the way, so that means those born in 1940 * 1952 * 1964 * 1976 * 1988 * 2000), and every year my friends & I go out to a Chinese restaurant. This year we went to Shanghai off of the 2nd circle.
There is nothing special about the place itself decor-wise. But that being said, the layout is spacious & comfortable. You don't feel like you're having a conversation with the table right next to you.
We began with soup. 3 types were ordered: the Hot & Sour, Corn & Won Ton. The Hot & Sour was the best and most liked. The other two were a bit bland.
Then on to the appetizers - Chicken dumplings, shrimp dumplings, won tons, spring rolls and chicken balls. The winners - chicken dumplings, spring rolls and definitely the chicken balls. Very flavorful and portion-wise very generous.
the Mains (and we had quite a few - YES we enjoy eating in this group) were actually excellent. Not one dish that we ordered was not to our satisfaction. Highlights - Kung Pao beef, sesame chicken, lemon chicken, the broccoli & vegetable noodles.
The staff could have been a bit more attentive to when things needed to be cleared off the table or lazy susan (the round revolving tray in the middle of the table). But they more than made up for that by being very friendly and attentive to us.
I think the average price per person without the drinks was 13 JDs; and trust me we ordered alot of food.
So overall experience - Excellent. I'd highly recommend it!
الحلو بأراكس انه عندهم اشياء غريبة مثل الشاورما الصينية - كثير، كثير بحبها! طعمها غير ما بتلاقيها بمحلات ثانية و طبعا اللحمة بعجين الارمنية كمان كثير زاكية :) المطعم نظيف و الخدمة حلوة و الاسعار مثل باقي المحلات. والمحل مش بس بيقدم شاورما، عندهم كمان فلافل عالطريقة اللبنانية و مشاوي و معجنات - يعني تشكيلة حلوة
كثير، كثير حبيت فكرة بيت ستي. الواحد بيتعلم طبخة صح و بنفس الوقت بيكون عم يتسلى و يتنافس مع اصحابه. جو المطعم عن جد زي كأنك ببيت ستك و الكل اللي بيشتغلوا فيه رائعين. اذا بدكم طلعة غير عادية لازم اتجربوا بيت ستي!!!
Excellent restaurant that is truly authentic. the food is good and very reasonably priced. the staff are very friendly and obliging too. As one of the oldest establishments in Amman, it is a must for every jordanian and visitor!
