Salmon in garlic-butter sauce and Lamb Korma

For the main course, go for a beeline to the salmon and korma. These two are by far the best of the fare paired with the yellow basmati rice when I went there with my brother. There is a wide choice for appetizers and the Arabic mezzeh never fails; the de-shelled shrimps were excellent also. Forgo... read more

Went for lunch with my family. Restaurant after renovation changed its name from Animato to Fork and Knife = ForKnife. Wonderful place, amazing varieties of main dishes, great service, nice desserts and fruits. We tried buffet and no doubt it deserves every riyal we paid.

The breakfast buffet is very poor, there is no selections for dessert. The foul was finished and we requested to refill it which took so long and we were already bored of waiting. We just ate some fruits and left. And the fruits definitely don't worth that much. Will never visit again for breakfast. We might consider trying dinner one... More

Most nights the food was cold. The selection was OK. The soup was probably the warmest item on offer. The last two nights we saw an improvement

We used to go here often a couple of years ago and I gave a high review then. We went today and were disappointed. The breakfast buffet is smaller than before, the chef completely forgot to cook the eggs for me, the service was very limited (taken to a dirty table, slow to get a welcome drink, servers more concerned...

I can't complain - the variety of menu is just enormous... you can stay forever enjoying the food & having a breakfast meeting in this place. The waiters are very attentive... worth the time.

This is a great breakfast buffet because it is not HUGE and it is not small. There are cooked items like sausage meats, often pancakes and/or waffle items, fresh fruit, made to order omelettes, lots of breads, good choice of Arabic items, foul with all of the fixings, always has a good business but welcoming to those of us who...

Wide range of breakfast foods including American, Asian, Middle Eastern and British. Very friendly staff to keep your coffee cup filled and whisk away used plates. We have particularly enjoyed the "shot of the day" which is a nice combination of freshly squeezed juices.

I ate both breakfast and dinner here when staying at the Movenpick during a conference. The variety of food in the buffet is very nice, and the produce seems fresh. The atmosphere is what you would expect from a hotel buffet restaurant; in other words, don't come here on a first date. But overall I can't complain.
