  • Review by Ghena of Da Esmat Italian Kitchen
    3 years ago
    I haven't been to the new location, so I cannot comment on that. But food-wise, I LOVE it. This is one of my favourite restaurants in Amman, I always tend to gravitate towards it when I'm craving italian food. My favourite dish is the mushroom risotto but I've tried a lot of things off the menu and I'm always impressed. Their home made tiramisu is sooo good as well. Their prices are pretty reasonable compared to the quality of food.

    Small place in Abdoun, next to treats and beans. I've tried it a couple of times and wasn't disappointed. The quality of food is good, it doesn't take long for your food to be prepared and the kitchen is open so you can see that they're clean and use fresh ingredients. I tried their kani salad and sweet and sour chicken with rice and loved both. We ordered a couple more items, and everything was up to standards. I would recommend this place if you want some asian or italian food and want a quick meal.

    A relatively new place, it's only in its first year. The owners are lebanese and make mana'eesh and pastries that are really good. I tried their "mohamara" with cheese, spinach and cheese with parsley and they were all really good and their dough is thin. There prices are reasonable as well. There is a parking lot in front of it so it's not difficult to find a place to park your car. محل جديد ما صرلو سنة فاتح٬ لديه منائيش زاكية، جربت المحمرة مع جبنة والسبانخ والجبنة بالبقدونس وحبيتهم كلهم. اسعاره مناسبة و في مصفات متاحة
  • Review by Ghena of Abu Khamies Pastries

    We have been getting mana'eesh from Abu Khamis for years now, and it will always be one of my favourite places. My favourite is the salami and cheese, but their zaatar, white cheese and eggs mana'eesh are also really good. The only problem is there are no parking places! It takes ages to find somewhere to park.
  • Review by Ghena of Brisket

    The place itself is really small, only a counter and a couple of tables but they do take advantage of the space outside and have tables there too. The food is amazing, one of my favourite burger places in Amman. I've tried almost all their burgers, including the chicken sliders and brisket-on-burger, and they're all really good. However, you do have to go relatively early because sometimes towards the end of the day they're sold out (which indicates that they're really good). The food takes not too long to be served and it always comes hot and fresh. I recommend you try this place at least once but just be aware of their prices, although I do think its worth it.
  • Review by Ghena of Rakwet Arab Cafe

    I went there yesterday and I really liked it. We sat outside, ordered cheese and zaatar mana2eesh, tea and argeeleh. The service is good and the food was good too. I really recommend this place for people who want to chill with their friends or family, and have a good time. The only bad thing I can mention is the parking. We had to park on another street because there is no place to park around the cafe, but it's normal to do so in AlWeibdeh since the streets are small.

    Its a good place to chill with your friends in, or for meetings since its not noisy at all. They have a good variety of drinks and food, I tried the truffle sliders and they were very delicious. The service is great and the staff are very friendly. You can choose to either sit outside or inside, both are very organized and the tables arent crowded together like you see in other places.
  • Review by Ghena of Shawerma 3a Saj

    I tried the meat shawerma and chicken shawerma, both were pretty good. Not the best I've had, but it's good and the portions are filling.

    The food was good, the service was okay but it took them a long time to get us the argeeleh as well as the drinks. Overall i have an average experience there

  • Review by Ghena of Cattleman Joe's

    We tried the ribs, the grilled chicken burger, the hawaiian burger, the chicken burrito, chicken tacos and a couple of appetizers including the fried pickles.. everything was great and the food came quickly. They also offer a ramadan menu, with soup, salad and free dessert. The place's decor is really nice, inspired by the western culture, the waiters were dressed like cowboys. They were very friendly.

    The quality has decreased over the years, their food isn't as good as it once was. The service was okay, the waiter wasn't friendly and had a frown on his face the whole time.
  • Review by Ghena of Seed
    3 years ago
    I can honestly say Seed is one of my favourite places in Amman. I always leave satisfied, the place has good vibes and all their products are healthy. I've tried all their smoothies and juices, even their seasonal ones. My favourite permanent one is strawberry delight, and my favourite seasonal smoothie is their tropical chill. They use all fresh ingredients, you also have the option to create your own smoothie/juice, which is amazing. I've also tried their sandwiches and salads, and I loved them. They even make their own peanut butter and almond butter, but I have yet to try them. I've heard good things about them though. The place is very clean and the decor is lovely, you can take your order to go, or sit outside and enjoy it. They also offer delivery, which takes about 25-30 minutes to arrive and the drinks arrive cold and fresh.

    I love their waffles, one of the best in Amman. Not a big fan of their crepes, but that's just personal preference. I've also tried their nachos and they're good. The place is clean and the employees are friendly. They prepare your order fairly quickly which is great.

  • Review by Ghena of Chinese Village Restaurant
    3 years ago
    We tried this place today and I was pleasantly surprised! The quality of the food was really good and the portions were generous, we liked all the dishes that we ordered (including chicken cashew, sweet and sour chicken, crispy beef, vegetable noodles, sizzling beef....). We were 12 people so we ordered a lot of dishes and the price was more than reasonable! There was no valet, but there is a parking space next to the restaurant so it's not hard to find somewhere to park your car. The place wasn't over-crowded and noisy at all, it was very pleasant. Overall, we were very satisfied and would probably go there again!
  • Review by Ghena of Vivid The Boulevard
    3 years ago
    I've been there twice, and both times I sat upstairs on the roof which was very nice. the weather was good, and the environment is very chill but my only comment is that the music is too loud and all over the place, they played all kinds of genres and I didn't appreciate the fact that I had to shout so my friend can hear me. The service was not bad, but we had to ask for our order twice and then they got us something we didnt order.. it was a while before we actually got what we wanted. Over all, this place is not bad. I had fun, and I'd probably go again just for the rooftop.
  • Review by Ghena of Najla Kitchen
    3 years ago
    My family loves this restaurant, so I decided to give it a try with them. First of all, the decor is really cool and homey, I loved the interior design of the place. It's a family-run restaurant, so the owner was there and I was pleasantly surprised to see that she personally cooks everything, even the desserts were homemade. The place itself is very clean, and I liked the idea that the kitchen is open, so you get to actually see your food being cooked which is great because you see how clean they are! Its a set menu so you don't have to go through the hastle of figuring out what to order, but it's also considered a downside for people who might not like that particular day's menu so I recommend asking what the menu is when calling to reserve. The food was amazing! There was so many appetisers, and they were all really good. 2 types of main courses (tabeekh) were served, both really great as well. The dessert trey was full of homemade treats like hareeseh and such. I had a really great time, and I will definitely be going again.
  • Review by Ghena of Fatty Dabs Burger Shack
    3 years ago
    This used to be our regular hangout place a couple of years back. I've gone a couple of times recently and decided I have mixed feelings about it. On one hand, fatty dabs serve good burgers with a decent portion of fries (which I really like). Their cookie sundae is my favourite! I order it every time I go. They also offer some really good milkshakes. But on the other hand, the prices are quite high but can be overlooked because the quality of food is good. However, the selection of music is poor, no one wants to listen to loud dance music while they're having their meal! The hygiene of the place can be better, the tables are not always clean and are too crowded next to each other. All in all, it's a good burger joint whose vibes cater more for teenagers, rather than families or large groups.
  • Review by Ghena of Miles Supermarket
    3 years ago
    It's a really clean and organised supermarket, with a wide variety of options to choose from. Even though the supermarket was full, the checkout was moving pretty efficiently and we didn't have to wait at all. My only negative comment is the vegetables didn't look fresh at all and the bread looked very stale.
  • Review by Ghena of Starbucks
    3 years ago
    I've never sat in this starbucks branch, I usually just go through the drive through. It's very convenient for people who don't have time to park and go inside to order, or for people who are just too lazy to do so. The guys that work at the window are super friendly and thankfully, they've never got my order wrong once.
  • Review by Ghena of The Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf
    3 years ago
    My friends and I used to go to this branch regularly, we'd usually sit upstairs but if the weather is nice, we'd sit outside. Its a very chill place with good coffee, my go-to drink was the hazelnut ice blended. They have a good selection of teas as well. The place is usually very crowded so sometimes its hard to find a place to sit, but the staff are very nice and would usually place a table for us outside.
  • Review by Ghena of Popeyes

    My favourite fast food restaurant, I love their fries especially. Since there is no Popeyes in Beirut, I have it every time I'm back in Amman! Definitely my guilty pleasure.
  • Review by Ghena of Pizza Lover
    3 years ago
    Pizza Lover has unique pizzas, which is why I love this place! We usually order the BBQ Chicken pizza and the Chicken Alfredo. If you want it delivered, it usually takes 30-40 minutes to arrive, and they arrive hot, which is very reasonable. But take-out takes less time. We call them, order the pizza and 15-20 minutes later we pick them up and they're always hot and fresh, and really good.

    I'm a regular customer at Azara and I don't plan on going anywhere else. Very clean and great decor, which I appreciate very much. the people that work there make you feel welcomed and comfortable. Overall, the environment is amazing and I love going there. (They changed their location, it's now in Sweifyeh)
