Description: This place is Ausome! when it comes to food, this is a place to go when you visit Riyadh city. be sure that you have an empty stomach when you visit the restaurant and be filled by their TITANIC buffet every wednesdays from 9pm - 1am in the family section. From the appetizers, the main course, pasta, up to the dessert they all taste so great! The name TITANIC already implies how huge their selections are. Once you go up the stairs, they have this tall chocolate fountain with different kinds of fruits to choose from. They even have this crepe counter and you can choose your own filling, i tried the chocolate filling "YUMMY!" Also they have this mongolian style counter, wherein you choose your own ingredients and your sauce and they will cook it in front of you. I tried their seafood in 8 kinds of sauces and the mix seaood cream soup, the best! When you want to visit Al Nafoura don't forget to book a reservation and ask for the titanic buffet, since they are mostly full. The restaurant is very easy to find, they have a big boat outside and a big fountain made of lights. They also have their own fish market with real fish and it doesn't smell like your surounded by different kinds of fish, its super clean.

So outdatedd, tables chairs everything! Felt like it was dirty nd old nd I just wanted to leave! Had the appetizer of humos and tabbouleh etc. The vine leaves were horrible at best. The fish is fresh thats why I gave a 2 not a 1!

Been here twice now since I started working in Riyadh. Both times the food has been very good. Ask for chips and you get a massive plate for less than £1. Had Moussaka the first time, and an Arabic meat dish the second - both nice. You also get masses of flatbread, which although not that tasty, certainly fills a... More

Love the chicken shawarmas, not so much the lamb. Better lamb shawarma seasoning and flavor at Mama Noura's.

This place offers a variety of fish and shellfish done the way you please. Their fish is fresh and tasty. Though not very presentable. Basically it's a place where you literally only eat. I recommend trying Najil of Jeddah which is a tasty fish. The frying style can be random, good or bad. Inconsistent but with very little choice in... More

It can be quite difficult to find decent fish in Riyadh. Lots of hammour, which isn't the tastiest fish around. Al Nafoura has several branches. The one we went to is on King Abdul Aziz Road. It has a good variety of fish (hammour, salmon, sole) on the menu, more you can order specially from the market (tuna, snapper, and... More

Visited this place with a crowd. Families with children. Ordered the food from the live tanks. Great variety and choice in preparation style. Be sure to ask the quantities when getting the various types weighed at the counter. Good ambience.

If you would like to have some good quality seafood in a comfortable setting I would recommend this restaurant. The staff is friendly, service is fast and efficient, not much else one could ask for.

This restaurant comes with a theme. They have chosen for mountains or caves. In the upper floor, they have decorated the place as if you are in a cave, with fake rocks, stalactites and everything. Surreal! I wondered whether I was eating or being eaten. The food is great though and the service excellent. Worthwhile a visit.
