Very nice restaurant with a huge selection of dishes. Better to go there with a local friend that can help on the better food selection. Really nice location... there are also real falcons! Suggested

The food was delightful, the atmosphere seemed very genuinely Saudi, and the privacy of the curtained-off rooms allowed for a relaxing atmosphere while eating.

This was a random trip but what an experience!!! This was my favourite meal during my stay in Riyadh! The exterior of building itself builds in the mood and once we stepped inside was like a very traditional welcome with a waiting area with very local seating arrangement. Then we were allowed a room since we were a big group... More

If you are looking to try the traditional food for the middle region of Saudi Arabia, you have to go there. Even the style of setting area is like our traditional buildings.

Good for traditional food. Waited quite a long time for a room as the queue was so long, but it was worth it.

This is the best place mainly for tourists to try traditional food, it is very popular and very busy with locals too because of it is so excellent food. The overall feel of this place make you feel as if you are in a very old Saudi house which adds much to the experience. The place in winter can get... More

This restaurant is the best to try a typical Saudi Arabian home dishes. It has dishes from all over Saudi but mostly from Najd. The ambience is true Najdi, where the walls and rooms are clay built. The ingredients are fresh and the bread is made in front of you.

This is a typical old fashion Saudi Restaurant with fantastic atmosphere eating on carpet in front of a fire place. They have a good variety of dishes , beef, Camel and Chicken. I love to drink the cold yogurt in metal dish and the sweet. At the end you enjoy drinking the tea in small glass cup

Description
This is a traditional Saudi Arabian restaurant where EVERYTHING is traditional, from the food, decor (think 1950's Riyadh) & dinning style (on the floor). It does not seem to have a website, which is why I think I haven't seen any foreigners there. This is a hidden gem I believe particularly western visitors would enjoy. Truelly authentic.
