It's been a while since I was last in khobar. Visiting the Sanbok brought back many happy memories. The standards have certainly been kept. Orlando still keeping things tight front of house with Antonio still reigning supremely in the kitchen. Food served is still of a high order, well presented and delicious. Very highly recommended for both their seafood and... More

Whilst the watron staff were extremely friendly... we waited forever for our order to be taken.. waited forever for drinks... the food was served cold... the aircon was set to freezing... we eventually had to get up to leave...

Its is my first visit to this seafood restaurant even though apart from fish they have a superb Ala crate menu, it become evident that these guys are professionals . Food, texture, presentation and service are amongst the best to be found in Europe. If in Al Khobar don't pass on on this place, its a jewel in the Crown.

Mosquitos everywhere in the restuarant and they offer no solution. AC is not working properly. I ordered Najel fesh but I am sure it is not Najel. Bad quality.
