I went for a special occasion looking forward to some nice sushi and formal environment during lunch. It was completely empty and the couches clearly showed their wear and stains in the midday. Possibly it would have been better at night when you can't notice that type of thing. The sushi was okay for taste but much more expensive than... More

One of the worst restaurants in Riyadh in terms of service! It was really bad and there was a lack of professionalism. I will never go back again ever!

The food is good...The burger is great. Drinks are average. I like the decor it feels young, funky and fresh but the waiter service in this place sucks big time and for this reason I may not go back.

What a pleasant evening. The dinner was delicious. Sea Bass was one of the entrees and it was cooked to perfection. A great dining experience well worth the price. You could cook your own pieces of sheared beef and the vegetables were cooked properly and delicious.

You have to ask for medium cook if you are looking for medium well and medium well if you want well done. It is more like a cafe rather than a restaurant by the... More

Saw this place on tripadvisor and decided to try it out on a busy Wednesday evening. Well we were not disappointed, food was very very nice with a wide range of options on the menu. Service was very good and the casual atmosphere was nice. Very good place to eat in Riyadh
