This is a traditional Saudi Arabian restaurant where EVERYTHING is traditional, from the food, decor (think 1950's Riyadh) & dinning style (on the floor). It does not seem to have a website, which is why I think I haven't seen any foreigners there. This is a hidden gem I believe particularly western visitors would enjoy. Truelly authentic.

The place to go for an authentic Saudi Arabian dining experience. Attentive staff and quality and quantity to the max. No need to book the open dining areas just turn up and dine. The private rooms require booking. Parking at the front can be rather manic, but plenty of room on nearby streets. Enjoy and take your camera.

This is my place in Riyadh. Every time I have to travel for business, I always like to end my days lying in the floor of this local restaurant, like a local, enjoying superb lamb, rice and chicken. A must go in Riyadh. Probably the best value for money in the KSA.

Najd Village - Riyadh, is a genuine traditional restaurant offering many Saudi plates. The atmosphere goes with the name, and the food is tasty.
