Authentic Arabian food, antique look, tender succulent and lightly spiced meat. The khubis, curry and salads we're fresh and delicious. We particularly enjoyed the rich enormous amount of kabsa rice. The family section is private and beautiful.

If you want to try saudi food and you willing to set on the ground then you must visit it. The decoration has been designed as old saudi Houses.

When in Riyadh, I guess you must experience the traditional Saudi cuisine and Bedouin culture through the food. The restaurant is a very good replica of an old traditional mud house with a well, artifacts, and the traditions of years ago. We had our own...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.
