One of the best Saudi traditional food restaurants. Food is very delicious and prices are reasonable. It is very crowded so pick a suitable time or you have to wait for some time to get a free place to dine in.

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.
