Lunch for 4, sat cross legged on carpet, outside in the shade in February, circa 30C. Maybe one of the best experiences - try the Mahi (camel) it´s a bit like lamb. Breads are also great. Overall great food, served fast, and great ambience....

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.

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.
