5 of us shared an excellent traditional feast menu prepared by the chef after a tour of the restaurant. The atmosphere is great, service is attentive yet inobstrusive. There is plenty of food so bring your appetites!

We were 5 people, eating the menu for 4 (120 SAR per person). The food was plenty, more than we could ever eat. And it was delicious. Greatlocation, excellent service. Highly recommended.

Best place to enjoy traditional food from central Saudi. Very authentic in terms of presentation and taste. You will also enjoy the private rooms for singles and families. You may like to be there on Tuesdays as they have open buffet with roasted lamb on fire.

Najd village is located across from the Diriyeh old town (which as of the writing of this review isn't open to the public yet). The area has recently been renovated and a although it feels a little touristy, it's really very popular with the locals. In the center is a restaurant called Najd Village that serves local food...

Very nice restaurant with a huge selection of dishes. Better to go there with a local friend that can help on the better food selection. Really nice location... there are also real falcons! Suggested

The food was delightful, the atmosphere seemed very genuinely Saudi, and the privacy of the curtained-off rooms allowed for a relaxing atmosphere while eating.

This was a random trip but what an experience!!! This was my favourite meal during my stay in Riyadh! The exterior of building itself builds in the mood and once we stepped inside was like a very traditional welcome with a waiting area with very local seating arrangement. Then we were allowed a room since we were a big group... More

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.
