To be honest, I was not sure what to expect when my colleagues said we were going to have a traditional Saudi dinner. Like most, I do not have deep experience in Saudi culture and cuisine. The food at Najd Village is wonderful. Flavorful. Served...More

I had a really enjoyable meal. The food and surroundings feel like an authentic Saudi desert dwelling, even in the middle of Riyadh. Camel was tastier than I expected, as was the sour milk.

This is a traditional authentic restaurant where you can feel yourself in a desert. The ambiance of it was original but that's all. There is nothing special about the taste of food, typical normal food. Touristic place.

I enjoyed the traditional dishes of rice and chicken - so many varieties and large portions means nobody could leave hungry! There was a welcome qahwah (Arabic coffee) at the start, and of course, we finished with a couple of date-based desserts. They were very...More

A full 5 rating for the food. Najd is the central region of Saudi Arabia. Literally meaning highland or upland. A remote location which was not at all inviting to foreign invaders. As such its cuisine would have been guarded from outside influences. Moreover a...More

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.
