I went there with my wife and one of our friend, they were planning to go for the dinner somewhere else but unfortunately I insisted on this place, I quickly checked the reviews and most of the old reviews were saying the same thing that main course was served before the starters, so I thought it's not gonna be a problem anymore as these reviews are old very easy fixable but got very disappointed when the same thing happened to us. We ordered lintel soup, mushroom soup, chef's potatoes, Chef's special lamb rice, dawood basha. Lintel soup was okay, mushroom soup was good, special lamb rice was okay, but Dawood basha was below average. The potatoes were dry and it didn't come with any sauce, so when I asked they told me I have to order full plate of humus or something. They don't serve tap water so fill up your belly before coming lol. Drinks(mint laminde, laminade and strawberry mango mix) were expensive and below average. Also their service is way too slow as there was only one girl serving for all the tables so you've to wave a lot to get her attention. It's an over priced restaurant, it cost us about 45.6$ per person

We went as a group of 12 and we had good service. Food was good and halal. Quality was there but it was odd that the Mandi's on the menu were takeout only. For large groups, they didn't have much shareable options. The taste of the Jordanian dish was something I recommend, very well done and taste was there. It is quite pricey overall but I must say the atmosphere makes up for it. They have a beautiful dessert spread which looks fabulous, but we didn't try. I personally prefer other options in the region but it is a beautiful place, that has decent food.

The food and service was very disappointing. I walked in and all the tables were empty. There were no customers. Then I was told that the front two tables were reserved but everywhere else was available so I went and sat in the fancy green chairs but I was told that these are reserved. Me and my friend says there for almost two hours, nobody came to the reserved green seats. This made me and my friend very uncomfortable because we felt lied to. The mushroom soup was good but the roast 1/2 chicken was not good. The desert was enjoyed but the icecream itself had no cream, it felt like it was made with cheap shortening. I was so excited to try this place because the menu looks so good but it's horrible. Do not eat here. It's a waste of money and time.

First time trying Nafisa. I drove by it so many times and from the outside it looks so beautiful inside. Visited for lunch and had the quarter chicken with rice and salad and the Samak Harra (spicy fish) which came with a side of spiced fried potatoes. Both dishes were delicious. Before we left I also tried a variety of desserts, which were also delicious. My husband has a nut allergy and most of the dishes have nuts, but we ordered our dishes and advised the server of the allergy and they were able to accommodate by omitting the nuts. Lots of different dishes to try and vegetarian options available. My only complaint was that the atmosphere wasn't what I thought. The decor inside is exquisite, but has seen better days. I visited during the week for a late lunch and the restaurant was very warm, it didn't feel like the air conditioning was on, the tables and floors were sticky and had food crumbs and there were lots of flies flying around. The food was really good and I will order from them again, but wouldn't recommend dining in.

Loved my experience at Nafisah. The ambiance was nice. My dishes were fresh, delicious, enough for more than one person and came with good presentation. The service was somewhat slow and scattered but we went on a weekday and there was only one server. He was super nice and apologetic for any delays or misunderstanding. So happy to see good quality food with reasonable prices!!!
