The hotel is very impressive and had heard many good reviews about eating there at various restaurants. Four of us went for high tea to celebrate a good friend leaving. Two of us ordered the Oriental high tea and two ordered the other one. I had an oriental and to be honest was not impressed at all. Presentation was good but food ... not impressed. The bread was rather dry, pastries a little dry - definitely was not freshly prepared! I had ordered water with lemon, had to ask again for water and lemon, received water no lemon, asked again for lemon, finally received it. Friends had to request more water for tea - a hotel of this calibre should not be asking for top up of water - one would think that they have been trained correctly to be able to walk pass and ask if there is anything that we would like. They were very fast to want to remove the plates even though food was still on them!!!!. and we had to ask twice to please do not clear until empty or we have indicated that we are finished. Would not recommend as apparently there are better places for High Tea in Riyadh with better quality food.
