Amman definitely does Levantine food right, but what about other cuisines? Of course, you can find all types of restaurants that serve food from every corner of the world, but it doesn’t always mean it’s authentic. When it comes to Indian cuisine, there are quite a few places in Jordan that specialize in it, but would an Indian actually eat there? To answer that question, here is the official list of Indian restaurants in Amman that have proven authentic enough for an Indian to get a taste of what they are missing back home.
