TripAdvisor review on Ren Chai; "Best Chinese restaurant I've been to in my life"

Ren Chai is the best Chinese restaurant I've ever been to. First off, the place is very elegant. There is a small pond with some fish behind glass, nice music, and many other small things that make the place beautiful. Now, there is one dish that many Chinese restaurants serve, a chicken and broccoli served with brown sauce and rice. However, it was not on the menu. I still asked the waitress (Her name was Raquel) if they had it. She replied no, but said THAT THEY WOULD BE MORE THAN HAPPY TO STILL MAKE IT. Wow. We have went there more than 6 times now. Every time, the waitress Raquel had us, and she REMEMBERED MY ORDER EVERY TIME. This is the order that wasn't even on the menu. She remembered my order, and my family's order as well. That is dedication. They bring amazing chips for free as an appetizer (fish chips, I believe) with some sauces. But the last time we visited provoked me to make this review. They brought my food in HALF the time they normally do. Raquel (apologies if spelled wrong) is such an amazing waitress at such an amazing restaurant –Michael

Classy, classy, classy. Food is delicious, staff are extremely professionally, prices are overrated but it worth a visit. I highly recommend for everyone. Forgot to mention that it is part of Atico group. Reviewed 9th September 2017

TripAdvisor review on Ren Chai; "Searching for a very Good Chinese FOUND it!"

A comfortable, refined food that happens to have great Diced chicken with cashew nuts with Steamed rice, also Corn soup with chicken, Hot & sour soup, Canton noodles with vegetables and Wasabi shrimp (but cant taste the wasabi flavor). Servers are friendly; helpful with ordering a balanced meal. The only problem, theres no enough parking… Excellent food! if your searching for a good Chinese cuisine, i highly recommend this restaurant. Reviewed 23rd July, 2017

TripAdvisor review on Ren Chai; "One of best in Amman"

Was a good experience loved the food, decent food portions could be bigger. Prices are bit expensive not as much as I thought we got a discount too was nice of them to do so. Definitely recommend it. Reviewed 8th July, 2017

TripAdvisor review on Ren Chai; "My Family Restaurant with an Exquisite Taste,"

Have you ever been to a restaurant more than once and each time you go there, your craving for the taste increases? Well, this is exactly my feeling about Ren Chai in Amman. Not only that I feel it is my favorite restaurant, but I just feel you can never get enough of its exquisite cuisine, and every time you go there, is like the first time. The Jordanian hospitality is coupled with fine Chinese cuisine; all this is presented in a “home” environment with a class A adaptation from a house into a restaurant that offers diverse ambiance between very public dining to a more private place, to a calm and breezy outside terrace.

TripAdvisor review on Ren Chai; "Authentic Chinese Fine Dining "

We went as a couple, the entrance is ambient with relaxing bamboo flute music adoring the refined Asian garden and the arching aromatic pink jasmine had us feel as though we were stepping into an ancient Chinese monastery. The foyer is grand and everything was immaculate from cleanliness to lighting and furniture to staff whom are well trained and really do make this place happen and outshine the rest. I felt a bit underdressed in my casual attire but that wasn't a problem at all. Ren Chai boasts an elegant boutique bar facing the dining area. the tables seat parties of all sizes were well spread out with proper distance for moving around. Ren Chai caters to mostly non-smoking patrons but do have a well ventilated smoking area. So this is a great spot for those wanting to escape Amman's suffocating fumes. We didn't have reservations but we were cordially seated at a comfortable yet privately tucked away table for two which was set up with bespoke glass tableware and the finest silverware. The waitress placed two Oshiboris (hot towels) after we were seated. They followed everything to the tee from being thoroughly versed on their menu to perfect serving etiquette. If you aim to impress your company, bring them to Ren Chai. You won't be disappointed. The atmosphere and the contemporary interior design go hand in hand. The dimly lit dining area adds to the experience. Nothing beats the calm ambience with an authentic meal. Ren Chai is one of the rare places that actually care about their regular patrons. I got to learn about Hikmat Kaddoura through their menu! I had the hot and sour soup which was the best ever, took me a decade back in my memory of China Town in NYC. My bf had the sweet corn soup which he loved! The shredded beef in oyster sauce is simply perfect and the serving is more than enough for two. We also ordered grilled shrimp with cashew nuts and vegetable. They also serve a variety of chicken, pork duck, scallops, grouper fish and lobster but we weren't adventurous that particular evening. They also serve a variety of vegetables, noodles and rice recipes as well as fritters for desserts. We didn't have space to eat anymore 😉 They also serve a fine wine and premium liquor selection. Price wise, I think they're not expensive at all. For the authentic cuisine, fine-dining experience and the service you are getting this is a mid range restaurant and quite affordable. It's not overpriced at all, those who seem to think so obviously haven't had a real fine-dining experience in their life. This is not an Arabized menu, when you come here expect authentic tasting Cantonese and Szechwan delicacies not the Chinese food you're used to in Jordan or the Middle East. Ren Chai is by far the best in the Middle East and is superior to Jordan's PF Chang. Thank you for transforming our spirits, we will be coming here more often 🙂 Reviewed Apr 12, 2017

TripAdvisor review on Ren Chai; "Unexpectedly good"

Amman does not have many Chinese options so we were pleasantly surprised when we visited Ren Chai for dinner. The restaurant is nicely decorated and we thought the food was tasty. There are quite a number of options in the menu, including some pork dishes. Beer, wine, and liquor is also available. Our waiter was super nice, even noting that... Reviewed Mar 13, 2017

We had a lunch for 100 people and Musleh took the order and gave us an offer in a very short time, within an hour of calling him. He was very accommodating and professional. On the day of the event, Rami and Musleh did a great job on serving all the food upon request all guests were very very happy with the food and service. The value for money was very good and all our guests loved the venue. We also orderd two special meals and they were served in a timely manner and were cooked as we wanted them."

TripAdvisor review on Ren Chai; "Hands down the best Chinese food in Amman"

If you have not been to this gem of a restaurant then you have to drop everything you are doing and come by. Everything here is beyond amazing.. I usually love to complain about my food and or service, but I didn't have one bad thing to say about Ren Chai. I use to come here when I lived in Amman and they have kept the consistency of great service and amazing food. For starters we had: Shrimp with sesame on toast - lovely but greasy, Chicken balls- very good, Main course: Half a duck - loved it.. loved the presentation and the pancakes the duck is served in, Sweet and sour chicken - beyond amazing.. the sauce is out of this world, Crispy beef noodles - also amazing, Crispy beef - good.. but not my favorite, Soft vegetable noodles - amazing amazing amazing. Off course I could not order dessert after all this food. Love you Ren Chai! Reviewed December 31, 2014
