I tremendously enjoyed the authentic Levantine food served at this restaurant, which sports a hospitable desert tent ambience. I half expected Valentino or Lawrence of Arabia to turn up at any moment! We had the Jordanian national dish of Mansaf -- lamb leg in a spicy, goat's milk yoghurt sauce. The lamb was incredibly tender and flavorful and the sauce salty just like it is in the Middle East -- salt is used to preserve the dried goat's milk yoghurt called ""jameed"". Portions were huge and came with pine-nut pilaf, complimentary salad or lentil soup plus all the pita you couls eat. Lamb came on the bone for enhanced flavor and delicious marrow. Owners and staff were very welcoming, friendly and highly visible. This place was a great all-round experience!
