Really great foods, taste like a real Turkish Cuisine. Only the place is always full especially during lunch and dinner, and you cannot do the reservation. Most of the waiters speak only Arabic or Turkish (not English)

Was there for the 1st time. Easy to locate. Spacious even on a busy Friday lunchtime. Paid 310 sr for Khayal mixed grill (on a bed of perfectly-cooked long-grain rice, roasted tomatoes, green chilis & delectable eggplants which my very picky son surprisingly liked); small dish of mixed starters; corn salad; 2 tall glasses of pomegranate juice & 2 glasses...

Excellent food quality at a very reasonable price. Khayal offers great selection of kebabs and lots of tasty salads. The place is very nice and comfortable and the hospitality is great. I love their dates and coffee to start with. Service is always exceptional and you don't have to wait long for the food, even if it is crowded. Definitely... More

The place is still maintaining its top quality ingredients and Turkish style barbeque. My favorite is Kabab Eskandar which is layers of bread soaked in yogurt then topped with meat shaworma and a tomato sauce. The mixed grill is something you will never go wrong with and the juices they offer are fresh and delicious. The place is always busy... More

Been here so many times can't even count! Genuinely one of my favorite places to go in Jeddah for a meal. The food is reasonably priced and is good quality. I have tried a lot of the dishes available here. The best is the chicken pistachio kebab. Honestly very good and tastes unique too! Their mix grill pretty good too... More

This is one of the best Turkish restaurant in Jeddah. Food is simply too good. Prices are very reasonable. The one I like most here is there Ice cream Kunafa, a dessert to die for :)

Khayal is known for many people in Jeddah specially among singles and employees who want to have a quick meal for a reasonable price. They have very delicious Turkish food , I like a dish called " Iskandar " also their mixed grills dish is delicious. Now the negative thing about the restaurant is that tables are not very clean...

This restaurant was the best Turkish restaurant in the city. The only problem that downgraded them is dealing with the crowd! The service and food get worse when the restaurant gets crowded. Beside they have the rudest waiters ever.

Our group of 6 adults went to Khayal in Jeddah for a dinner out. We did not have a reservation and only had to wait for about 10 minutes for a table on a busy evening. We ordered several appetizers - hommus, babaganoush, grape leaves, melted cheese with meat and a few others. We also ordered a kil of mixed... More
