Reviewed By NZKiwiana - New Plymouth, New Zealand

good one night, so-so the next

Had a good meal one night, clean, pleasant, good service, and in particular the vege sawany was excellent - standout tasty. Complimentary mint tea. We came back the next night and were disappointed - we had the chicken sawany which wasnt as tasty, the chicken was pretty dry, and poor service. Four guys in suits had come in (maybe tour guides or something, there were a lot of buses in town that night) and they got all the attention. I had to get up and find someone to take the order and pay the bill. No mint tea. Overall average, nothing really to make it stand out in a crowd of similar restaurants lining the main street. Note that things get more expensive further down the hill nearer the entrance to Petra. The kebab place at the roundabout is a bit pricey for what it is. Overall Wadi Musa is an expensive little town.

Chilled spot for a drink in Wadi Musa

There are very few places to enjoy a beer in Wadi Musa so Time Out was a very welcome discovery. You'll get a warm welcome and a relaxed atmosphere in this cafe/bar/shisha, its a good place to chill before or after a day's hike around Petra.

The Petra Kitchen

Reviewed By dee6jay - Buckinghamshire

Great fun and great food

This was a lot of fun. The restaurant and kitchen has recently completed refurbishment and everything is sparkling and new.There were 16 of us from all over, including some children.Divided up into tables of six, we all helped prepare a 3 course dinner under the instruction of very cheerful chefs! Some of the food has been partly prepare in advance to save time, but we still did a lot and cooked traditional Jordan dishes. There's a lot of chopping!!! You are given a little recipe booklet to try out what you have learnt at home. Tea/coffee and soft drinks are included for free and alcohol is available to purchase. Vegetarians were catered for but you need to let them know when you book the experience.At the end you all get to sit down and eat the delicious meal you have cooked together.It was a great evening so do it if you get the chanceDear Dee6jay,thanks for leaving us such a wonderful review, your review made our day! We are thrilled that you loved your experience; our staff at Petra Kitchen will definitely be happy to read what you wrote. We put customer experience and satisfaction as our priority, and your review reaffirms the hard work we put in every day. So thanks for your kind words and we look forward to seeing you again at Petra Kitchen. Kind Regards,Samer Twaissi

Clean and friendly.

This is linked to the Petra Sella Hotel opposite. I was there for dinner. After 6.30pm they offer a buffet it a-la cart. I had the Buffet. Some good Salad options and 5 or so hot dishes.The fried rice and the lamb in a creamy sauce were especially good.It is a a bit lacking in atmosphere though and was not very full.Recommended as a change from the many BBQ restaurants in Petra.

Pricey

Lovely setting and well located near the entrance/exit to the old Petra.Nice outdoor and indoor seating.Very expensive. We had four large beers and one chicken shawarma and the cost was around 45 JD. OK as a one-off, but at that price it wouldn’t be a regular haunt for me.

Just Average

We came here for dinner and no other tables were occupied. There was some loud Bedouin music being played which was not pleasant. We ordered for Bedouin Soup( wheat soup),salad and Chicken Maqlouba (upside down local dish). The Bedoin soup tasted like instant Maggie stock added to it. The Maqlouba was average and a bit dry with a grilled piece of quarter chicken placed on top. We have tasted better Maqloobas elsewhere.
