I have been here several times and always enjoy it. Its a bit of a drive out of Riyadh but not that far. Its such a well maintained racecourse and I enjoy the view from the grandstands. There are different sections for males and families but the conveniences are great. For the first time we had to pay to enter... More

If you want to go posh there is a gorgeous restaurant with a wonderful buffet. If you just want an afternoon outing with the kids, take the public entrance, pay for the entrance fee, buy coupons for food cum raffle. Just after the entrance there are some stalls selling local snacks and handicrafts. Take a seat at the bleachers or... More

Fantastic social atmosphere, and a great Ladies Day out! Safe and friendly environment plus excellent food and horse racing. It doesn't get better than this! Opportunities for western women to enjoy sporting and social events, as an all female group, are very few in Riyadh. This venue is very welcoming to ladies. Will definitely go again and can thoroughly recommend... More

I went there with a group from a conference and was nicely impressed. The food was good, particularly the lamb. The challenge we had is that the room was set in a crescent shape and is very difficult to use for a presentation or video. Also know that the acoustics are awful for presentations. My suggestion -- do the presentation... More

Friday afternoon. This place really fills up. It's virtually free and with little kids, it's good fun. They loved to see the races. I'm not a gambling person, but nonetheless entertaining.

To get a crowd together for the drive out of Riyadh was never an issue! Everybody wanted to go. Cost, for the spread was acceptable. Waiters were top of the range, friendly and made one feel at home. The entertainment....well groomed horses and the racing around the sand track. Splendid! The food was 5 star quality. Well prepared and a... More
