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

The decor is really nice and seems to be a good example of authentic Saudy traditional architecture. Food was good but serving is a litle bit frust. All in one, i recommend if you want to make an idea of Saudy tradition.

The replica bedouin decor which is as close to the real thin without going to the desert sets the mood for a traditional feast. Make sure to bring your appetite and be prepared to be seated on the floor, as is the tradition.

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.
