Continuing to be both popular and busy, this behemoth rolls on. However, while still reasonably priced, quality appears to have been reduced to meet this.

Al-Najdiyah Village

Reviewed By adamgB2040YJ - Riyadh, Saudi Arabia

If you want a glimpse of what traditional Arabian food is like, this is the place for you. With a plethora of western and contemporary restaurants in Riyadh to chose from, one might ask themselves where they can find classic Saudi cuisine. This is the place.
Although they have a range of middle eastern appetizers and sweets on the menu, the main courses are one hundred percent Saudi.Any attempt to describe the menu would not do it justice nor would it be an easy task since aside from cabs, the classic rice pilaf with either meat or chicken, very few of these dishes are known to those that haven't had the pleasure of dining at a Saudi's home.
Not only is the food good (though it will never beat home cooking), the decor showcases the design aesthetics of the old Nejdi homes. This experience must be tried at least once, but based on the waiting lines, you will be more than happy to become a repeat customer.

Najd Village

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.

Reviewed By Joepure - Los Angeles, California

To be honest, I was not sure what to expect when my colleagues said we were going to have a traditional Saudi dinner. Like most, I do not have deep experience in Saudi culture and cuisine.
The food at Najd Village is wonderful. Flavorful. Served with great pride. Helpful service staff to explain the flavors and make suggestions. Food was sumptuous and as evidenced in the many photos - served family style in comfortable group rooms.
A must try if in Riyadh - as it's great to escape the hotels and malls!

Piatto

Reviewed By Jorn H - London

We were invited here for a business dinner.
The service was very quick, friendly and attentive. There is a very nice salad as a complimentary starter.
The food is very good, fresh and tasty.
There is quite a large selection.
The place is very stylish - in fact a bit too stylish if one likes the simplicity and austerity of some great restaurants in Italy.
Definitely worth going if one happens to be in Riyadh.

Our steaks are "wet-aged" in a controlled environment to ensure tenderness and seasoned with secret blend of 17 herbs and spices. Our chefs understand the nuances of beef and are expertly trained to prepare a perfectly grilled Steak.

Reviewed By Rob Z

Excellent service but the quality of food is not that great. The Blooming Onion is the greatest attraction, however, when it comes to steaks, the chef needs to learn the difference between Medium (our request) and extremely well done. So disappointing. Yet I may visit again still. The Blooming Onion is really good. The Peach Melon Mojito is really awesome.

Lusin

Prepare yourself to savour an evocative cuisine to celebrate the centuries old tradition of a proud people. Lusin serves its guests enticing Armenian specialities renowned for its distinctive aromas and flavourful preparations. Take a gastronomic journey and be tempted by a collection of exquisite dishes that feature pomegranate tanginess, along with an aromatically rich aftertaste such as Manti, Kabab and traditional appetizers aplenty.

We went as group of friends and we set out side in the balcony. Was great and a little bit gold. They give us blankets and there was heaters. We enjoyed our delicious dinner. I recommend it.

Al Orjouan

Savor a delectable assortment of culinary delights at Al Orjouan, widely regarded as one of the finest buffet restaurants in Riyadh. Breakfast, lunch, and dinner are served daily in The Ritz-Carlton, Riyadh dining room's relaxed and refined atmosphere, while a traditional Friday brunch service begins by greeting guests with Arabic coffee and dates before serving a lavish spread of Oriental and International favorites.

Reviewed By Khalid K

It’s quite difficult to begin this review as there very few restaurants/hotels that the Ritz-Carlton can be compared to.
The food was absolutely incredible! Whether in terms of flavor, variety, presentation, or organization. At Al-Orjouan you can enjoy cuisines from all over the world, including Italian, Indian, Chinese, Middle Eastern foods with many other options being available. All of the food is very well organized by both originating country and intended course (a substantial consideration when taking into account the selection that is offered).
The service staff members were absolutely lovely and incredibly welcoming! You will always feel like you are dining amongst family and that the service staff is truly joyous and pleased to be serving you. During my visit I was served by a splendid gentleman called Abhishek who was always pleasant and prompt in dealing with or responding to any requests.
Finally the venue (does one really need to mention the venue when talking about the Ritz-Carlton?) is absolutely mind blowing! A real grand palace an absolutely gorgeous romanesque design. To get an idea of what the Al-Orjouan restaurant looks like you can find many photos through a simple Google search (while the photos are nice, this is one place that looks much better when experienced in reality!).
I believe that Al-Orjouan is worth every penny, and you will in no way whatsoever regret giving this place a visit. A must-see indeed!
