The Sanbok has an unbeatable location right by the sea-side on the Alkhobar corniche aptly catering sea-food. This is a fine dining restaurent and quite pricy. A party of four could well cost anywhere SR600 upward however the ambience is absolutely enchanting especially in the day time. Service is excellent but if you ask them to suggest a menu for... More

I went there last week following the comments on this restaurant. The quality of food was correct. Not great food. Of course the waiters were busy watching the football world cup but I was watching as well so no worries... The bad surprise was the bill! Almost 300aed for a local fish + steam rice. I dont recommend. Better quality... More

I have been going to this place for several years, and always had great food, and excellent service. But in June, was very disappointed. The staff was too busy watching the television of the World Cup matches, was difficult to even get waited on. Then when the food came, the fish was freezer burnt, dry, overlooked, the side dishes were... More

I visited Dammam on business and my colleague took me to Al Sanbok for lunch. Superbly prepared and presented seafood in comfortable surroundings with a fine view over the water. All of the dishes we tried were very good but the stand-out selection was the lobster. Highly recommended and I will definitely return

Great fish selection and the iced fish counter is impressive. The food was well prepared and the service was attentive. I found the atmosphere to be a bit hospital like a antiseptic. Value is not great as the prices are very high for the overall experience.

We had a very lovely nighttime view of the causeway to Bahrain from our table. The staff was very welcoming and offered us a sweet drink and marvelous fresh baked flat bread. We didn't order fresh fish, but the menu is incredible. They will prepare your fish any way you like but they give a lot of suggestions. We had... More

Superb restaurant in every way. The service is excellent and they offer an extensive selection of fresh fish and shellfish, which is neatly displayed. You can have your selection of fish prepared in a variety of ways.
