“Good but poor service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 10, 2013

Food quality is good, but staff is very rude & seens like they only want to serve arabs, non arabs have to face tough language & faces without smile.

You should try Foul (beans on Saudi way), Mutabaq ( knid of pastery filled vegitable), and Masoob ( Banana mixed with baked bread) which may be offered with many extra additions such as honey,cream, cheese)

“traditional saudi food.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 10, 2013

if you in for trying new stuff, then you have to visit abuzaid, though its better to dress like saudies ( a thoub) will be nice, the food is hot with so many dishes, all of them you must know how to eat. yet its a little bet ciaoatic, no lines or waters. you have to serve your self.

“does the job”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 15, 2013

I am not a fan of this kind of food, but to be fair this restaurant is actually good. prices are incredibly low and the food is good. You should definitely try it if you visit Jeddah.
