My favorite local restaurant

I've been to this place several times with both Western and local business associates. The ambiance is fantastic and the sound of the running water (re-created stream) is really soothing.

Indeed if you are invited to a dinner with locals in a Saudi home, the experience may be much more authentic, but for an introduction to local food and to Saudi, it is just perfect! Food is good enough, service is a bit slow..., décor is just perfect and the atmosphere is superb. Do not miss it! What a pity... More

Once you enter the restaurant, you feel that you are living at least 50 years ago. You can have a arabic coffee, dates and sweets or you can have full meal with a variety of Meat or chicken Kabsah. Amount of food is more than you can eat. I always take our guests from outside the country to have some... More

May be the place and other related service somehow represent the Najed (middle region of Saudi Arabia) life style but the food taste is not really something I would recommend

Excellent restaurant serving diverse Saudi delicacies. You sit on the floor and are served a huge array of rice, meat and breads. Authentic flavours and lovely village style ambience with attentive service. Highly recommended if you are visiting Riyadh. We sat in the family section in a private room.

We were couple of foreign families and one Saudi family sharing a traditional dinner. Plenty of tasty and delicious Saudi food in a very good atmosphere. When ever you go to the place, you need dogie bags for left overs - so that you can enjoy also in the next day. Pizza you can find from everywhere- but this unique... More

Fabulous all round! Take a private room with a fireplace. Inexpensive, delicious, wonderful staff, traditional Najdi decor. Great with a group!

If you are looking for a traditional experience in Saudi Arabia this is the place. The dining areas are covered in rugs and seating is on the floor. Rice, beef, lamb, and chicken are all part of the meal. Don't pass up the chance to visit and experience this traditional meal.
