Me and my friends went to asir lounge at the globe and we really enjoyed the whole stay. It was a great experience and the food is good, It was a pleasure to meet the chef from Switzerland and ask if everything was good. This personal touch makes our stay comfortable and we promise to come back again and again.

We ordered Turkish coffee, cheese cake and a chocolate cake . The quality of food was average when compared to the price they charge ..... More

As this place is located at the top of one of the famous towers in Riyadh city, the Glob give the beauty and luxury to you. enjoy your visit with preferred pre-booking at the cigar bar or enjoy the international food at the restaurant. good for couples not recommended for families with kids.

This is a nice place to unwind with family and friends. We were here for a celebration of an anniversary of our friend. The ambience and the food are a cut above the rest. Slightly on the expensive side, but in the end we retain memories of how we were pampered. Best visited in the winters. The view is superb!

great view, nice lounge for Cigar, but the food is not that much. I went there couple of times and decided its a coffee and cigar place only not for food.
