“Nice Lebanese restaurant ”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 3, 2014

Nice food against a reasonable price, good diversity, not very comfortable dining areas due to tight separated sections.

“Very nice Lebanese food!!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 10, 2014

The restaurant is situated in the heart of Tahliya.. Staff is very courteous and the food is served quite quick.

I would recommend to go for a Abdel Wahad Kebab platter. It has everything, Lamb, Prawns, Chicken, Beef and Fish.

Do try the Saudi Champagne (its an Apple Juice with Gas...... lol ;) )

Overall and very good place to visit..

One problem is they have written "No Smoking" outside, but customers do smoke. Its sometimes not very health.

“Great Lebanese food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 6, 2014

Abdelwahab is our favourite lebanese restaurant in Riyadh. We have been going to this restaurant since 2007 and we love it. The appetisers are top quality especially the Makanek and the potato with coriander. As for the main dish, their best is the Kharoof as its a speciality dish for them but my advice is to order some yoghourt with it. And for the desert you should order the mahalabia or the kataief with cream. The staff are friendly like all lebanese restaurants.

“Average food, average service at best”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 1, 2014

Having been seated, we ordered chicken soup and 2 plates of shish tawook one spicy and the other not.
The chicken soup had a single piece of chicken in it and was not one of the best we have had.
When the shish tawook came we found that both come none spicy and therefore we returned one of them back to have it replaced with spicy shish only to be informed that they will not grill another plate for us but can provide us with Tabasco sauce!
If you are already in Tahlia and craving Lebanese there are a number of other restaurants, walking distance that serve Lebanese with better quality and better service.
