A Saudi "light" version of True Najd-style dining

If you have westerners to entertain in Saudi, a trip to Najdi village will give them a taste of Saudi food, dining, and hospitality, without the flies, camels, and heat interrupting their experience.

Incredible Saudi food. We were only women and had our own room which meant once we had finished we could lay down in the room (much needed after a heavy meal!). I tried the banquet on the second visit and it was just as delicious

If you want to try the saudi traditional food. This is the place. The best. Try jareesh with hamees( lamb meat ). Also maqloobah with lamb meat a good choice

Traditional saudi food, low on spices, with all the rice/bread sides, enjoyed in a room like area , sitting down on traditional carpets. Food served in traditional utensils, and best enjoyed with hands rather than silverware. The ambiance is unique, and fun to experience. The food is above average, and if unsure, ask the waiters what their best sellers are... More

I saw this restaurant after searching on Trip Advisor and thought this could be a perfect end to our trip to Riyadh. Al-Najdiyah Village is an incredibly authentic Saudi restaurant where you're able to sit in private rooms on the floor which is covered in rugs. I was informed by our Saudi colleague that the restaurant is popular with Westeners... More

I took many of my Western guests to this restaurant. It provided them with an authentic food experience every time. I strongly recommend reservation to get the private rooms. Minimum order around 400 is required but will be consumed for a a party of 4 or more

I visited this place with my friends recently and I must say that the food spices were really not the type we are used to having and we felt it was just too bland. The feel of the place itself is really good and nice village setup which is different from other hotels. Nice place for photography.

Liked: the food, atmosphere, decoration, the service, the coffee is great! try to come in a large group because the smallest portion is enough for 2-3 persons and to taste many things you will need to have a group. Disliked: wait time for seating
