The Best Indian Restaurants in Amman

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.

    1. Hey, I haven’t heard much about these places. I know there are more restaurants serving Indian food, but not sure how authentic it is. Have you been to these places and can vouch for them?


  1. I’ve been to Chappati. I did not like it, only because I come from Bradford, UK. Where they serve th best curries in the world😊
    Chappati was very South Indian style, very creamy and saucy. Between 10 of us we tried variety of dishes but we’re disappointed. Suppose it depends on you palate.


    1. The list was created by polling Indians in Amman, so I think they would have to be polled again to know their favorite 😀
