Well worth a visit to the high tea buffet, amazing selection of food at a set price. The views of the city are stunning and the service was good with friendly respectful staff.

“Friday High Tea”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 21, 2013

Excellent service and fabulous food. The views of Riyadh whilst you dine are tremendous and in terms of value for money in comparison to the alternatives it is good. Perhaps not a weekly option but well worth it for a special occasion.

“Spectacular view, delicious food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 30, 2013

We enjoyed a delicious meal looking out over the city of Riyadh from a stunning vantage point. The service was excellent and the beef with truffles and asparagus was perfectly cooked, beautifully presented and truly delicious. Desert and soup were outstanding too. We recommend this for a very special evening.

“Rediculus prices”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2013

The views are spectacular, but that's about it. The food is average, cakes and desserts good. Drinks (all non-alcoholic of course) were good but extortionately priced.
