“Nice Indian food but the Original one”

Very tasty Indian food but not the "original" Indian as it's modified to suite arabs and other nationalities so it's not as spicy as it should, still taste good but the place is "Always" crowede you should have plenty of time if you want to go there.

Makani has wonderful Indian food. The restaurant is not fancy, but the food is excellent! Service is great, but get there early because there is usually a wait to get a table. The Chicken Tikka Masalah is to die for. I large serving is about $6 US. Rice is separate but very cheap! If you dont like your food spicy just tell the waiter "No spicy" and you got it with out any loss of favor!

This restaurant is amazing. While the service and cleaning are very low standard, the food is so great. Their prices are so reasable as well. I still can't believe the waiting lines in weekends.

This hotel was recommended to me by my friend, He described it as the best one in Riyadh, so I was eager to jump in, he even told me a waiting period of one hour required on any day.

It wasn't like that though. Food average, Costs Less, Interior traditional and dull, Parking Too difficult, Its a OK place to visit to try Indian food but dont go with a very high expectation, Items are made to suit Saudi peoople (less spice), so u need to tell them for extra spice if you love.

Try Kasturi Kabab..its good
