Najd Village

Corner of King Abdullah Rd & Abo Baker Rd | 3rwerew, Riyadh, Saudi Arabia
(11) 2250034
Update restaurant details
Ranked #5 of 217 restaurants in Riyadh
Certificate of Excellence 2013
Cuisines: Afghan
Dining options: Reservations, Late Night
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 went for the first time for Saudi cuisine, and I am impressed. The food was amazing, quantity is good, two person can share one. Do try the labn as drink, instead of coke. You will love the way it is served. try to sit down and eat, it is really impressive. the staff is also courteous.

I've been to a few Najd Village outlets in Riyadh for team lunches or dinners, but the one at Takhassusi St, Al Olaya, Riyadh 12331, Saudi Arabia, Phone +966 11 464 6530 is by far the best. We were a group of about 15 mixed Saudi and Expat colleagues. But the Saudis took charge of ordering a veritable feast, and... More

I visited the restaurant in March 2014. I chose the camel (yes camel) "Kabsa" which came with rice, tomatoes, peppers, chilli and lemon. The dish also came with some dates as a side dish. Total price of 40 SAR. For drink I opted for Arabic coffee at 12 SAR. The camel was surprisingly tender and full of flavour. Very similar... More

A very attractive and tasty spread of local cuisine with traditional decor. My old bones, however, do not bend well, and sitting on the carpeted floor is a problem.

Very nice restaurant for local / arabic food (non lebanese) in beautiful and lovely arranged ambient. Our expat family enjoyed the meal, while sitting on the floor and sharing the plates with our guests. The service could be better, but for local standards it is OK.

From the outside you imagine that finally you have found the exemplary Saudi Arabia experience in fine food. This is a typical Saudi traditional food, but nothing fancy. The place is interesting for foreigners visiting the city if they wanted to get a taste for "cultural experience on carpet dining”. The ambience is worth as people come and go continuously.... More
