This authentic Arabic eatery offers huge portions of Saudi food in a cosy setting. It doesn’t look much from the outside, but once you step inside you’ll feel like you’ve been transported into the middle of a desert camp. The decor is quaint, cosy and nomadic with sheepskins, Bedouin decorative features and little partitioned private dining areas with majlis seating. Come hungry as Saudi Cuisine VIP serves gigantic portions that are easily shareable between large groups. The madfoon is a huge helping of delicious rice topped with tender lamb; the meat is served on the bone and is accompanied by yoghurt and a bowl of chilli sauce.

Families be careful! As soon as you enter this Family friendly restaurant, there are 3-4 Concrete steps WITH NO HANDRAIL that you have to go down in order to reach the main restaurant floor. We had just finished lunch, and my Daughter who has a very quiet personality decided to go up these steps to have a look at the window. Suddenly, she slips from the side of the steps and falls smack down on the concrete edge causing a deep 4 cm gash in her chin. We where very lucky as I managed to get to the Emergency in time to treat her. The next day, I thought to pay the restaurant a visit so as to ensure this doesn't happen to someone else and explain what had happened and that the whole incident may have been avoided had there been a handrail fixed. When asking for the manager, he was not there . When insisting on speaking to him, I was asked from my phone number and was told that the manager will call me. Until today almost 2 weeks later and he still did not call. What a shame! I am very disappointed of how they have dealt with me and this is why I thought I spek out here. Take Care . . .

This place doesn't have much on an ambience, but the food makes up for everything else! Simple amazing chicken and lamb dishes, I think delivery and takeaway is the way to go. If they have a slightly more welcoming staff, this place could actually be nice to take friends and family in large parties!
