Went here with my customers and had a great time. Locals actually picked all the food, I just have snapshots and great memory of an awesome place.

Have eaten there several times.. Supposedly traditional cuisine of central Arabia. The locals aren't impressed. Friends say it's very touristy. Plenty of food. A nice place to take westerners for a sampling of Saudi food. Foreigners can say they sat on the floor and ate Saudi food and take selfies.

Nice restaurant which is hugely popular for its local heritage setting. The seating, furniture, interior all very saudi looking and its is really colorful. There are open areas and also rooms for privacy and larger groups. The food was very local and very nice. The price is reasonable too.

Took my parents and children here for lunch. We had a banquet for 5 of us and there was so much food we didn't even nearly finish it! The restaurant is a traditional Arabic restaurant where you sit on the floor and eat traditional Arabic food. The food was great and there was lots of different local food to try.... More

Najd is decorated as an old Arabian house with wide rooms with beautiful handmade carpets covered with curtains to keep privacy. Waiters dress moroccan style and that gives a touch of exoticism. It is a great spot to drink Arab tea with dates, talk for a while and finally get a nice full meal. Portions are very big and the... More

Description
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.
