AL-BAIK

Reviewed By Nabil A - Al Khobar, Saudi Arabia

Maybe my taste buds are out of order, but I found the chicken nuggets tasteless, furthermore, fries were cold, no napkins on the tray, congested during lunch time, poor Seating just to mention few things. Certainly cheaper than KFC, and that what makes it famous in my view. KFC is greasy but certainly has a better taste.

It is OK. No great shakes but fast and tasty enough. I go back once a week or so. I would not call it authentic Chinese so much as Chinesish or sorta Chinese.

Ostorah Restaurant

Reviewed By jaseaton - Silver Spring, Maryland

To debrief our end-of-project presentation, we went to Ostorah for Lunch. We shared spaghetti, Mezze plate, lentil soups and chicken kabob dishes. All were fine without being even in the galaxy of gourmet. The dining area is a hodge podge of plain tables and chairs with absolutely no softening decor (though the lights weren't quite bare bulbs. Prices were average. Service was functional and polite. They got it done and we got it done.

This was my first visit to the restaurant. Had ordered Chicken Dum Biriyani. The taste was mesmerizing. Very good quality and quantity. Very much satisfied with the food. Had continued to get my dinners and lunch from this place for 3 days in a row.

The Shangri-La Chinese Restaurant

Reviewed By Frederick G

A definite must visit for all Chinese food lovers, this restaurant offers one of the best Chinese dishes I had tasted. It's even comparable to some of the best Chinese restaurants I've been to in the Philippines, Malaysia, and Singapore. Their Crispy Duck dish is something to die for and my wife in particular could not just get enough of their Chicken Noodle Soup. Prices are OK and the service is impeccable.

Fuddruckers Yanbu

Reviewed By 0504Traveller - Kenner, Louisiana

we were in Madinah and wanted something different so decided to eat at Fuddruckers in Al Noor Mall. Overall, the experience was similar to Fuddruckers in America, with some modifications
We were seated at our booth and our order was taken - this is different than in America. After our order, we were given small plates to grab some salad from the toppings bar. The toppings bar had a lot of similar items from America including the bbq sauce and melted cheese.
We had ordered the hamburger, the veggie burger and the mushroom swiss burger. each tasted very good and similar to what we would get in America. with the burger you had a choice of wedges, french fries, or veggies - we all got wedges which were good.
the only thing not good was the dessert, which did not taste good.

Located inside Holiday Inn Yanbu, this restaurant boasts of a spacious interior and a cozy atmosphere. A little pricey for the ordinary income earner (even here in KSA), but the service is quite good. As far as the quality of the food is concerned? Well, that is debatable. My wife and I ate dinner here a couple of nights ago. Seafood was their theme for that night. They had a wide array of dishes to choose from. The salad and dessert bars were outstandingly good. The calamari salad was so tasty and the apple pie was heavenly. The problem, I can only say was for the hot dishes. My wife and I were actually expecting some chef to cook something right of the grill or fry right in front of us (similar to what we experience in Radisson) which would be nice especially for seafood dishes like fish, prawns, and squids. But most of their hot dishes were not actually hot dishes. Majority of the dishes were cooked in white sauce with a mixed of Arabic spices. Don't get me wrong, the dishes were OK, the only problem is that it was already getting cold. For the price we paid we were expecting something really outstanding. We were a little disappointed.

Cascada Cafe & Restaurant

Cascada Café & Restaurant, we're providing to our customers & the best food service in Yanbu. We're providing a special coffee to our customer.

Reviewed By gurufvg - Cebu City, Philippines

This cafe located within the Al-Jawharah Mall in Yanbu Al Sinaiyah, KSA, serves more than just hot beverages and pastries.. They also serve pastas, soups and a host of other meals having chicken and beef. Given the location and size of the place, I find their menu items a little pricey. The food is good though. My wife and I had the vegetable soup, spaghetti bolognaise, and beef. Service needs room for improvement, overall though the restaurant/cafe is just OK.
