“A treat to have - buffet lunch!!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 7, 2013

Have been a very frequent visitor to the wonderful hotel. Has a great lobby view and as you step downwards into the restaurant it is a wonderful place for a business lunch. Great menu, great seating, great food. A little over priced, but that's part of a quality hotel in town.

“Al Khayyam Restaurant”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed July 30, 2013

The restaurant is beautifully decorated, nevertheless, it fails to deliver the on food, service, and is overpriced (SAR300 per person).
Ramadan Iftar their in not worth 1/3 the price that they ask for. they service you as if they making you a favor. The service is too slow, and they give you that look as if you are begging.
What they call as specialty of fresh Iranian BBQ.
The rice is awful, any restaurant would make a better rice.
the excuse they gave is that they had 15-20 person party, which drained their resources. If they can not provide a good and timely service, with the right food, let them close the restaurant.
It was a bad experience for me and my guests.

“Buffet Lunch”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 30, 2013

An ideal place for buffet lunch. A huge variety of foods from many cultures and delicious. There are no licensed premises in Saudi Arabia. No alcohol is served in the country.

It is the best hotel in Jeddah and it makes us feel at home. The food and services are excellent. I would like to thank the Jeddah Hilton.
