I went there last night for Iftar with my company, I was in-charge of the event to I made the reservations. When I called to reserve, I made it clear that the number of people was 36 and I want one long table, they said ok. then I called the day before the iftar and confirmed my reservation again, and had them confirm that it was for 36 people and one long table. To my surprise when I got there, they had reserved 2 separate tables and for 32 people!
This might not bother some people, so what if we sit at 2 different tables? it bothered me a lot because I had a seating chart that we needed to stick to! not to mention that I had four people without a seat when the Athan had called because of course the service is so bad that it took them a while to get my another table and chairs!!
The food from the buffet was good, they had a good selection, and everything tasted well.
The service was terrible, everything you ordered was extremely late, or they didnt even bring it at all (which was the case for me when I asked for a Lemonade that never came) and the over powering smoke from argeeleh everywhere (even though we were sitting outside) made the experience a horrible one for me.
I do not recommend going there for Iftar, specially for large groups.
I love the atmosphere of this place, its small, quite, and seating fit for a burger joint :)
Their Campfire burger was really good, very beefy and juicy. The fries, chicken wings and ceaser salad were amazing as well.
They are clean and quick, prices are slightly higher than other burger places, but worth the portions you get :)
I ordered a cake from them for my daughters 1st birthday, It was a large cupcake, the cream frosting was not bad, but the chocolate cake inside was AMAZING!! it really was very delicious. Their prices are ok.
I also bought "Halawit Al-Jubun" from them, the plain one, and it really wasnt good at all.
The place is in Daheyet al-yasmeen, not in Deir ghbar.
I went there with some family and friends to celebrate my sisters graduation. It was a fun evening, the food and service were excellent.
I tried four dishes; Ravioli ( they were stuffed with too much spinach and not enough cheese, the creamy tomato sauce was incredible), Fettuccine Alfredo (no salt and pepper at all, but once you added the salt it was good). Crab Salad and the Halloumi Salad were excellent in every way! Their Lemonade is really good too.
Now they have separate areas for smoking and non-smoking, but there is no barrier, so its as if you are sitting with the smokers!
This place just opened up next to my work, I think about a week now.
They serve a variety of sandwiches on their in-house made bread. it is absolutely fresh and delicious!
The place is clean, and the people who work there are friendly and sweet.
I highly recommend it!
I am not sure this is the same place all the other reviews are talking about!
I went there on a Saturday afternoon, the place was empty, extremely dim, at first sight I thought they were closed! The selection was pitiful. I bought an original cheesecake, a Nutella Extreme something cheesecake, and a Apple-Cinnamon muffin.
The cheesecakes were horrible! they are not classified as cheesecake, they were bland and very elastic.
The muffin was actually good, alhamdullilah!
and they are over-priced compared to the size and quality of their desserts.
I do not recommend this place at all.
I put my daughter in this nursery at the age of 70 Days, she is now almost a year old and I am very satisfied.
The exterior of the building is not fancy, could you a new coat of paint, but the inside is what matters, the classrooms are clean and kept clean throughout the day. They are also very spacious. The staff are very friendly, some are not experienced with small babies but they are fast learners, and if you have any comments they do exactly as you want and do not have an attitude about it.
The best thing about the nursery is the fact that the entire nursery is equipped with cameras, and you can watch the live feed either on you PC or even on your mobile phone. I can watch my baby girl all day long if I wanted :D
I took my sisters there for lunch on Friday afternoon, it was extremely busy, and the service suffered because of it.
We ordered Tuna Melt sandwich, Queens Burger, a Burger with fried cheese (the name escapes me) and a which chocolate crepe, the food was extremely delicious! I highly recommend any one of those.
Now the reason I am giving this place an average rating is because of the service. We sat for about 15 mins before we had to actually call someone and ask for a menu. then we had to wait for another 20 mins before anyone came to take our order. the food didnt take long to come out, but when we ordered drinks as soon as the food came we did not get out drinks till we had finished eating. we had to ask 4 different waiters about the drinks!! maybe because the place was over packed, but shouldn't the judgment of service be when there is pressure and not when there is barely anyone is the restaurant??
I tried the Spaghetti with shrimps, it was good but had a funny flavor, and the chocolate fondant, it was good, but the sides were a bit over cooked, but it was good :)
Nice atmosphere, clean, slow service though.
I joined the Jeeran team in trying out this restaurant a couple of days ago, the company was lovely, which is more than I can say about the food.
The overall decor of the restaurant was nice and very clean, but I did not like the choice of music, and the lighting was a bit too dim.
I ordered a lemonade, there is no way on earth that that was made from lemons! it was very artificial flavored and fizzy!
The buffet items were not labeled so it was difficult to choose things. i only like 2 main things from the buffet, the Fattoush salad, and this chicken in cream dish (it was delicious).
The Ribeye pepper steak was the best part. It was extremely tender, and well seasoned, I enjoyed it very much.
I took alot at the menu, the items are pricey for sure, but it is a steak house in the end :)
I stayed at the Kempinski in Aqaba for 4 nights for my second wedding anniversary. Our stay there was delightful.
The rooms are extremely comfortable and elegant. Room service is prompt and refreshing.
All the staff are helpful and friendly.
The pools were always clean, and the pool area itself it beautiful, the cabanas and chairs are comfortable and relaxing.
We ate at the Am&Pm restaurant for breakfast, The food was ok, but the selection wasnt so great. For dinner we are at the Fish In restaurant, though the portions were small the food was delicious.
i must say that the prices were a bit ridiculous, but we were able to get the room at a special rate because it was still low season so it was great.
I highly recommend staying there for your next trip down to Aqaba :)
The Hair expert for Muhajab women is so talented. She can simply look at you and know what is appropriate for the shape of your face.
The salon itself is clean & well equipped.
They offer a discount for university students, which I think is very nice.
I like going to this Salon for many reasons:
- Excellent Hair and make-up artists
- very clean
- extremely friendly, and customer satisfaction oriented
- They keep their appointments and dont make you wait
- Many employees, so when you go there is always someone that will help you.
its so great that every time I go there is always at least 10-12 people.
When your having problems with your teeth, you dont want to go to just anyone.
Dr. Ahmad is a great dentist. He is very nice,patient, great with kids and professional, and does not make you pay for things or do things you don't need.
my family and I have been going to him for the past 8 years now and are always satisfied with the results.
His office is very clean, and the equipment is always sterilized.
The only problem is the parking, its in Jabal Al-Hussein so parking is terrible there.
I highly recommend him.
This supermarket is my favorite for imported goods.
If your looking for special sauces for exotic dishes, your favorite brand of cereal, or your just craving different chocolates then this is the place for you! I can never walk in there without buying at least 2-3 items I was not planning to buy.
The one thing I dont like is that it opens late! I was there at 9:30 AM this morning and it still wasnt open.
and they dont have fruits & vegitable, nor a meat section, only a deli.
So its not a one-stop-shopping, but it sure does have enough that keeps me coming back.
The employees are extremely nice, and the place is always clean. easy to get to and offers convenient parking
I recommend their meat shawerma. It is one of the most delicious meat shawerma sandwich I have ever tasted!
The place is very clean, and the service is great. The one thing I dont like about it is their outside seating, not very comfortable.
but all in all a great meal!
I see that there are mixed reviews about this doctor.
She was my doctor when I was pregnant with my daughter, and throughout my pregnancy she was excellent, and when during my delivery she was a great support and I delivered with her naturally without any complication (thank Allah i the first place and thanks to her as well because she knew what to do and how to help me)
My problems with her were #1. She only delivers in the Arab Medical Center. #2. She is extremely on demand, and therefore there is almost always a waiting time to see her even when you have an appointment.
Dr. Hind is an amazing pediatrician!
I used to go to her as a child, and now with my own daughter I trust her completely.
She takes her time to understand the overall condition of the child rather than just the current symptoms.
She is recommended by the US and British embassies.
The only problem is that she is not on many of the insurance companies networks.
I work right across the street from it, and I've tried a few things from there.
My favorite is the chef salad with Italian dressing, the croutons they make are great, and the grilled chicken is beautifully spiced.
As for their sandwiches they are not bad.
The owners and the people that work their are great! I once ordered a mushroom burger and felt there wasnt enough mushrooms and sauce, the owner himself made me a new one and it was excellent, and did not charge me for it.
I have only tried a few things, and for me they were good, not great.
The Chocolate Fondant was pretty good, the size was plenty, and the price was bit above average.
Their waffles are enormous! but delicious :)
and their chocolate dipped marshmallows are not bad at all.
This is one my favorite places to go, I found it over a year ago, and have loved it from the first time i tried their Hot Chocolate.
My husband and I have spent many nights there enjoying the atmosphere and their amazing drinks. Our favorite drinks the hot chocolate (which tastes like real melted chocolate) and the French Vanilla Latte (which tastes like melted white chocolate) it is to die for!
The service there is great, they are very friendly and nice. They always make you feel welcome and comfortable.
I highly recommend that everyone try it.
I have been going to fitness one on and off for the past 6 years. When they became Vega I was slightly disappointed. The place is clean, and there are many cleaning members to assist you if needed. The swimming pool could have been bigger, and added more changing rooms to help accommodate the increasingly high number of members. The lockers are pitiful, they dont have nearly enough lockers, and many of them are too small, they barely fit my hand bag let alone fit a gym bag!
The classes are great! they have many various classes in the morning and the evening, but unfortunately none in the afternoon, so either you have to be late for work in the morning to be able to go to a morning class, or you have to stay late in the evening. I have gone many times between the hours of 2-5 and the gym is packed, but no available classes.
The other issue about the classes is that they dont have a maximum number of trainees! So if you go to Body Pump early, &the class has started, &it is already packed, many women will still come in & try and squeeze themselves with a step in between other women, its dangerous! the gym should limit the number of women per class & prohibit those who come after the class has already started to enter!
There is no need for the HUGE reception area!! they should have made the reception area much smaller and increased the space for the men's area!
Another issue is that the prices are ridiculous! it is expensive and they make you pay for the use of the entire gym! I can understand if someone has all the time in the world to come to the classes or work out on the machines, but for me my time table is different from that of the classes timetable, therefore why should I pay for the classes when I cannot come to the classes anyways!!!!
My final comment is about the road that leads to their underground parking, it is full of pot-holes and two stupid, very poorly made bumps, it affects the cars, for the price we pay they should at least pave that small strip in front of their gym!
I must admit that the staff and trainers are all very nice and helpful. Also they have a great car-wash service in their parking garage that I highly recommend.
There isn't much to say about this place, it sells coffee beans, mostly espresso,
It is the best coffee I have ever had!! nothing compares. its the only coffee I buy now to have in the morning :)
If you don't have a coffee maker and wish to try it, Sugar Daddys (In Abdoun) serves Lavazaa.
After reading most of the reviews I see that there are mixed opinions, So here is mine;
As a person who grew up on american breakfasts, I believe the food they serve is not far behind, it is delicious, well prepared and beautifully presented. but the portions are a bit awkward; for instance, the pancakes & waffles are huge, and the sausages and hash brows are tiny! so if a grown man were to eat there he would have to order multiple dishes to fill up.
The price is a bit above average but its still not bad.
The atmosphere is perfect for breakfast, and how crowded it is depends on the time you go. if you go on a Friday or Saturday it will be extremely crowded and possibly the service a bit slower than usual, but if you go on a weekday, it is more likely to be less of a crowed and quicker service.
One thing that always gets me when I go there is the coffee, they sure do know how to make a good cup of coffee :)
