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

It was great to go to the races Riyadh style. The buffet whilst not cheap was fantastic - the quality of the food and its presentation both excellent. The service was also really good and our glasses were constantly topped up with sparkling apple juice, we were also provided with a free 'race guide'. If you want 'to do' the... More

Around 160SAR for an all you can eat buffet in a relaxed setting watching the horse racing. In the dinning section, females may remove their bat capes and relax with family and friends, wandering onto the balcony to watch the gee gee's go past! Well worth a trip and the money...

A day at the races in Riyadh cannot be compared to horse racing anywhere else in the world. Firstly entrance is FREE. If you wish to have a meal that you will never forget, you pay SAR 180-00 and the buffet on the first floor that is located across from the finish line forms your "suite" or from the balcony....

Where else in the world would you get to watch the royalties race their top horses from a private box that serves a delectable buffet for less than $50 (180sr) per person?? It's a pleasant way to spend an afternoon with your friends, socializing and perhaps wager on which prince will walk away with more money or a brand new... More

All in all a very nice way to spend an evening, some reviewers feel it is a bit expensive, however it is good value for money (approx SR180 per person)....beware,,as the horse race season is at the cooler time of year the road to/ from this place can get...
