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.

Food was great and original. Abundance of choices to suit many tastes. Service was quick. The setting resembles old triaditional Saudi Arabia.

“Best Place for traditional Saudi dishes”
Reviewed July 29, 2012

Best Place for rice, meat and traditional Saudi dishes. its always full and need to come early every time find a place to set. I advise anyone to try the non-rice dishes even if their names are a bit strange

“Can't go wrong”
Reviewed July 12, 2012

Succulent dishes, unique setting and for once, an open concept (not very common in Riyadh). The service is good albeit sometimes slow because of the flux of patrons but the prices are reasonable. All the business associates I took there loved the place.
