Description: 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.

I can't comment on the authenticity or otherwise of the restaurant but I enjoyed my evening of conspicuous overconsumption and introduction to the intricacies of Arabic etiquette.

i enjoy the architecture there, the food quality is great for such restaurant and in comparing with local food supplier, the price is normal and average, you will be lucky if you find parking there

It was really nice to experience a traditional meal in Saudi Arabia. We ordered the big set up to share. It was way too much food for even 4 people. We ended up bringing more than half of it home. The meat dishes were great. The sweet bread was delicious. We got to try a bit of traditional Saudi dishes.... More

I like this place for the ambience, but the food leaves a lot to be desired. The food is good, but doesn't match the expectation it raises with the ambience.

With the traditional decorations and outdoor seats, Najd Village served wide selection of Saudi Food. The worst thing about it is that it is little bit expensive

If you stay in Riyadh this is a must seen. First when you enter you can sit near the entrance to have arabic coffee. Then you can go and eat in the patio where of course there are no proper table. You eat on the floor with your bare hands and the pure authentic arabic tradition. If you like arabic... More
