Welcome To Beit Sitti

Established in 2010 Beit Sitti came about by sisters Maria, Dina and Tania to keep their grandmothers legacy alive.

Beit Sitti offers a cook and dine experience where you come and learn how to prepare a traditional Arabic meal with the help of a Hajjeh, and then get to eat the food that you prepared, in their grandmothers house found in one of Ammans oldest neighborhoods, Jabal al weibdeh.

Book your session for either breakfast, lunch, or dinner and come learn how to prepare a four course arabic meal using seasonal vegetables picked by our local women. Then dine in our home to enjoy the fruits of your labor.

Book your session in advance as we only open upon reservation

Good Words Good People

  • “Authentic, fun, feel good cultural experience”   We visited Beit Sitti as part of a work social event during a conference in Amman.The concept and story behind this restaurant is so wonderfully real and heart-warming. A fantastic Jordanian culinary and cultural experience without the pretense that usually go with business dinners. Such fun in an authentic setting - loved cooking on the terrace. The lovely Maria hosted us and her energy, passion and easy-going attitude made us feel welcome and relaxed. Chill out, expect an experience and not a chef's course. The food was delicious, if I do say so myself 🙂 Love this place and I personally think it is great value, despite certain other reviews on here. The only sad part is that I have to now return to bland Swiss food.

  • "Be quick, before the word really starts to spread." Should you want to get a glimpse into the story behind some of these cherished Jordanian dishes – like muskhan (chicken with pine nuts) or mansaf (lamb, yoghurt and rice) – pop into Beit Sitti on Jabal Weibdeh, a Jordanian run cooking school where you can eat and cook to your heart’s content with no one else around. Be quick, before the word really starts to spread.

  • "A great experience for locals and tourists alike!" Has a great homey feel with its furniture, family pictures hanging on the walls, little trinkets that you would only find at your grandma's house, and the staff to compliment it. Very friendly and hospitable hosts giving the true sense of what it is like to be a guest in a Jordanian home. You also get the priceless tips that are only taught in a grandmother's kitchen: taste the latest batch of freshly pressed olive oil, taste the freshest spices from the market, and find out which spice you shouldn't go home without. Chopping, baking and tasting delivered with passion: My idea of a dining experience at its best.
