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.

Being a woman it was really difficult to get around alone. So I visited this restaurant with a colleague. We were directed to the "family section" immediately, which is a whole floor separated in small departments covered with curtains so the women to be invisible to others! Despite that, the... read more

The restaurant both in the singles and family sections could do with a refurb and the waiters are not always as attentive as they should be. However the food is generally of a decent quality from a fairly large menu based on Indian, Chinese, Arabic and even Italian styles. The weekend buffet tends to be well frequented by families so...

We had fish & grilled shrimps, it was really good. The service is very good, but a bit slow, and we were there during a week day so it wasn't very crowded, but still.....Prices are a bit on the high side.

What do you expect from a restaurant who has not known improvement in both service and food for many years! Shawarma shops have better waiters!!!

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.
