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.

Ate at the Ad Diriyah branch. The food and ambience is trying to recreate "traditional". Slightly spoilt by juice being served in plastic bottles rather than freshly made. For the price, I don't think the food is of sufficient quality.

Riyadh seems to be a place where you search for a taste of Old Saudi Arabia. There are a lot of modern buildings and places to eat. Yet Najd Village feels like you are going back in time. I went to the original restaurant on Takhassusi street: what a fantastic authentic interior, and cool garden. Everything here is like a village house. The service is very attentive (although don't expect perfect English—there is an English menu). I loved the chicken and rice and the stewed lamb. This is an experience that should not be missed by a visitor. The owner is a very nice guy as well. Must come here!

Visited the place with family. they have a nice traditional saudi menu of maghbous etc. They also have a full meal platter for three to four persons. meat and chicken are nicely cooked. Service is good and the ambience is traditional where people have to sit on the floor . Give it a try.

This was a back in time experience. The ambiance and decoration gives you a feeling that you are part of the past. Very enjoyable and relaxing
We were 5 and ordered a sufra for 4. The food was a lot.
I would rate food as 3.5/5 except for maglooba 4.5/5

Good for family or friends gathering as it has private rooms
