This is one of the famous traditional breackfast or dinner Resturant in Jeddah. They have many locations throug out Jeddah. Their main speciality is the favs brans. The food is good and the service is fast. But the overall cleanness of the place is not up to standards. It worth the try and it's always good if you are in... More

Early in the morning you can have a great breakfast from Abu Zaid that would hold you the whole day. Meal customization makes your preference easily met. There are a lot of (Foul restaurants) but Abu Zaid has set a very high standard for the service and taste in all branches around Jeddah city. The meal cost might not exceed... More

Food quality is good, but staff is very rude & seens like they only want to serve arabs, non arabs have to face tough language & faces without smile.

You should try Foul (beans on Saudi way), Mutabaq ( knid of pastery filled vegitable), and Masoob ( Banana mixed with baked bread) which may be offered with many extra additions such as honey,cream, cheese)

if you in for trying new stuff, then you have to visit abuzaid, though its better to dress like saudies ( a thoub) will be nice, the food is hot with so many dishes, all of them you must know how to eat. yet its a little bet ciaoatic, no lines or waters. you have to serve your self.
