“One of the better Pakistani restaurants in Riyadh”
Reviewed October 17, 2012

We had heard a few good things about this place before visiting but it surpassed our expectations.

The best part of this place is that it is not reeking of spices. When you walk in you don't get jolted by the smells of fried onions and garlic which is a problem at other "desi" (Indo-Pak) establishments in the city. So, that means you don't need to worry about your clothes carrying the aroma for the next few days. In general it is very clean and does not have a 'cheap' feel to the place.

As the name implies, they have a lot of Pakistani barbecue (grilled items) and they don't hold back on the spices. The mixed grill gives you a sample of everything; I liked the lamb chops and tandoori chicken the best. The seekh kebab and chicken boti were also tasty.

The breads were prepared on site and the Roghni Naan was very well done (you can taste the butter in each bite...watch out if you are counting calories :-) We also tried the Chicken Ginger (very nice - I like it when the chicken is cut up into tiny pieces) and Mutton Handi (it was okay - a little overpriced).

Service was very good. We went right after Friday prayers and it was quite empty. Just watch out for the 3-inch ledge you must step over when entering the male washroom in the family section

“Best food in Riyadh”
Reviewed September 20, 2012

Excellent food

Just wish we had discovered it sooner

Their chicken is absolutely the best tasting chicken in town-not the dry smelly stuff u get everywhere else!

On the negative side waiters don't need to be so loud,We don't wanna hear their bickering lol
