“Fattening”
Reviewed September 26, 2013

I was not particularly impressed with TGI Friday's. Their food is not particularly healthy and the service is really poor.

“Shame...”
Reviewed June 8, 2013

Thought we would try something different so went to TGI's on King Abdullah Road for dinner. With my wife, we were in the family section on a non-weekend evening. The service was slow and the place was a mess. Children running around everywhere (including under our table, and through it a couple of times). Strangely this was western families allowing their kids to run riot. Cant imagine this sort of behavior in the UK or elsewhere for that matter. Such a shame as it ruined a nice evening and made us feel bad for being British.

“Don't wait for "Friday" to go.”
Reviewed May 26, 2013

The off day visit (not a Friday) allowed us a casual, relaxing break from long, tedious hours in front of our computers in the office. The scenery of items were pleasant reminders of places visited in the United States of America and promoted conversation about our memories. Atmosphere dominated over the menu.

“nothing new on Friday”
Reviewed May 19, 2013

TGI Friday lost also in the capital of Saudi Arabia on quality. Seems like food is pre-cooked and just warmed up to be served. This makes the food not fresh, it more or less loses taste which is the case meanwhile in many TIG Friday across the globe.
