Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

    Enjoyable spot, cleaner than expected when we visited. We chanced upon a local family and they invited us to a breakfast picnic. Worth a quick stop if you are in the Khobar area.

    Very clean mall with good choice of shops ( Perfumes,Clothing /Jewellery etc.)and restaurants in the food court area.The mall has expanded over the years since my last visit many years ago.It is one of the oldest malls in Dhahran/Al Khobar area.Many new shops are still expected to open as a lot seemed to have closed since the pandemic.Quieter in the morning and gets busier in the afternoon/evenings.Recommended for a shopping trip.

    Named after Sultan bin Abdulaziz Al Saud, the former Saudi defense minister from 1963 to 2011 and the crown prince of Saudi Arabia from 2005 to 2011 and officially known as Sultan Bin Abdul-Aziz Science and Technology Center, it is an exciting and educational place to visit with family. The center is situated at the corniche of Khobar consisting of seven main show halls, dealing with different sciences and technologies. It is a fun, interactive space where kids can learn about science. There are more than 350 scientific exhibited pieces and the IMAX scientific dome, the Astronomic Observatory, Educational Unit, Conference Hall, Temporary Exhibitions Hall, and Administrative and Services Facilities. The Center has extensive exhibits on wildlife, space and technical innovations, as well as an impressive observatory where lectures and seminars are held. The exhibits are presented in an interactive style making it interesting for kids and adults alike. There are also numerous experiments that visitors could participate in. At the IMAX theater the visitors can watch educational movies about animals and nature. The center also hosts several courses and conferences that are quite popular amongst locals as well as the expatriate community. With so much to see and do, the Center is a remarkable place that is well worth a visit.

    This place exceeded my expectations of what it started as a personal collection, then grew over 30 years to over 10,000 items. Sound tracks from the old days play in certain sections for immersive experience.

    The mosque is situated in a large garden facing the Khobar Corniche consisting of two prayer halls on a land area of 40,000 square meters. There are two minarets, about 49 meters high, on both sides of the main entrance. A distinctly Saudi architectural design, it is dominated by the character of the modern era with all its induction technology. With multiple entrances, it is widely known as a very spacious and one of the largest mosques in the Eastern Province with a capacity of 4,100 worshippers. Completed in May 1997 at a cost of over Saudi Riyals 24,610,000 (over $6,500,000) it is a good and clean masjid, featuring a separate women's section, wheelchair accessibility, a big ablution area, clean toilets, and a large parking area. The big park is generally used for walking, cycling, picnicking, and a playing area for kids. It is a monument in Khobar city. Close to this mosque are many civic facilities including a hypermarket, petrol station, fast food, restaurants, banks and ATM machines, etc. Adjacent to the mosque is a funeral home or mortuary where the last rituals of a dead person are held. Usually, the janaza (funeral) prayers are offered here and then the deceased is taken to the Thuqbah graveyard.

    We regularly visit this store due to its quality products and fresh produce. Mercato is a supermarket that offers a wide variety of items and can fulfill all your basic needs. They have an impressive selection of products, and the staff is always helpful and friendly. The pastries are particularly noteworthy, as they are incredibly delicious. The store is well organized and clean, with fresh products and good offers. The deli counter and bakery are especially nice, and the bakery items are freshly prepared. The store is medium-sized and neat, with a well-arranged layout. The ambiance and setup are both excellent, making for an enjoyable shopping experience. Their falafel is a must-try item! The food is fresh, and there are lots of promotions available, making for a reasonable price point. Overall, Mercato is a fantastic supermarket that offers fresh fruits and vegetables, a variety of household consumables, and great food options.
