    Smoked salmon bagel
    1 more image

    This restaurant is fine for quick snacks.
    We ordered Cheesy chicken past, Caesar Salat, Smoked salmon bagel, \nd cheese garlic bread.
    We then had coca cola and one iced cappuccino Total came to £sud. 63

    Favorite Dish: The smoked salmon bagel was adequate and the bagel was spread with mayonnaise , and had lettuce leaves with the smoked salmon, which was not sliced as fine as I would have expected, but was tasty.

    I have used this as a takeaway pizza place.

    Favorite Dish: The margherita is nice with a thin crust, plenty of tomato and cheese The pizza is large, but when there are hungry children involved it is safer to buy two!

    lazeez /Delicious: popular takeaway

    by uglyscot Written Feb 28, 2010

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Lazeez  takeaway

    There are two shops of this name , one in Amarat and the other in Riyadh. Both are busy, especially at breakfast time with a constant flow of people coming to collect sandwiches to have during their breakfast break. The surroundings are nothing special, but the food is good and cheap.

    Favorite Dish: The taamia [felafel] is light and good, and the kofta is made from fresh meat, and served with tahina sauce. Both are good and filling.

    Universal Coffee: True Italian

    pizza

    This unassuming building from the outside, is something else when you actually taste the food. Apart from a modest sign beside the gate, you'd probably mistake this for a private house. Inside the courtyard are tables with bright yellow parasols.
    We had a table for 8 and ordered a mixture of pizzas and meat dishes, fruit juices and then ice cream. The bill came to 342 SP.
    The service was quite good, and the food was first class, even my husband's cappuccino, which he rarely enjoys outside Italy.
    Meat dishes are around 32 SP; Pizzas about 25 SP, ice cream 10 SP and fruit drinks 9 SP.

    Opening hours:
    Lunch 12 - 15.30
    Dinner 18.30 -23.00

    Note: during lunch and dinner 4.5 SP cover per person per table and 10% service tax and 15% VAT are added to the bill

    Inside is a display of paintings for sale, and hand-made jewellery which looked very nice ranging from 35-100Sp.

    Favorite Dish: The margherita I had had a crisp thin crust and was absolutely delicious. My son and a daughter had lemon escalope which was tender and out of this world, with sauted potatoes with rosemary,
    The oven cooked lamb was also tender and tasty. And the pizza napolitano was devoured.

    Kandhar meat market: Fresh lamb

    by flynboxes Written Nov 14, 2009

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    lamb salat, bread and hot sauce for dipping
    2 more images

    If you are going to eat one local dish here you need to try the fresh grilled lamb (salat?). The northern Arabs tend to like the grilled goat but the local Sudani's prefer the more tender lamb.
    If you are a bit concerned about hygiene here...no worries. I tend to have a sensative stomach but no problems here. They charge by the kilo and then after the butcher chops it up they hand it off to the women in the back who add a little local spice to it over hot coals and cook away. If you are not brave enough to eat here it is still worth checking out the meat market.

    Favorite Dish: A Sudani steak house? Well as close as it gets....there are numerous stalls here..try and choose the one with the most people in it...a sign that the food is good

    The roof top of the Bougainvilla Guesthouse: Into fresh air

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The roof

    I had breakfast here a few times and dinner once. The menu changes daily but the food is fresh and cooked to order. It is on the roof and when I was here in Oct the flys were not a problem..just warm air and a chance to interact with some of the many NGO workers staying at the Guesthouse.

    Favorite Dish: Depends on the night..the staff is very attentive. all of my meals were fine

    Pizza Connection: Pizza?

    by flynboxes Written Nov 14, 2009

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Not a lot of local places here..this one stands out because it is clean and does not have a separtate section for women and children to eat in which seems odd to most westerners but in this region it is a sign well run establishment as they do not attract the younger immature males that pester women.

    Favorite Dish: Pizzas are fine here..they also sanwiches, pasta and salads..the inside is spotless and they have an upstairs dining area with a view of the street.

    Sorry that I don't have more info on the place as I forgot to get it. My friend took me here my first night..you can get shwarma, hummus, and other snacks for a couple of bucks here. When we ate here on Monday night it was full with locals as well as younger UN/NGO kids..it had the feel of a college cafateria.

    Favorite Dish: It's all good here...my favorite place in Khartoum.

    Havana: Quick eats

    by flynboxes Written Nov 14, 2009

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This is a popular place with the expat crowd as well as some locals. More or less a sandwich shwarma shop. I got a quick bite here on the way back to my friend's place since she could not stop at Ozone due to security issues for US Govt. employees

    Favorite Dish: This place is a bit average but close to the Bougainvilla and UN offices in Riyadh which makes it popular

    Grand Cafe: kabab, kofta?

    interior
    1 more image

    This large restaurant and takeaway is Egyptian owned. The decor is simple but pleasant, painted in terracotta and a bisque shade. There is a clearly labelled WC.The restaurant apparently has a busy lunchtime clientele during the working week but on the Fridays we went only 5 tables were occupied. The service was fine and the menu was varied and about average. A salad bar is in the centre of the restaurant, self-service, at £5 Sudanese per head. Fine chapatti -like bread was provided which was very good.
    Outside there is some parking, but beware of the begging children. One approaches your car. Give him a coin, and immediately others appear from nowhere.

    Favorite Dish: I had meat kofta with vegetables and rice the first time we went.. The vegetables could have been cooked a few minutes longer, but otherwise the food was mediocre. My daughter and grand-daughter had mushroom picata which they ate with relish. Next time we went I had breaded escalope which was excellent, and was given two huge pieces which I couldn't finish.
    A doggy bag is available to take home what you can't eat.

    This fairly new restaurant is something special. It was built in typical Lebanese style using traditional Sudanese materials and decorations.
    The service is good. The dining rooms are spacious.The food is excellent, and the puffed up traditional bread is replenished when it gets cold. Valet car parking is available.

    Favorite Dish: We had the mixed grilled meat which was excellent :consisting of grilled chicken, beef, lamb kufta, chicken wings and chicken kebab. This was served on flat bread with vegetables.
    We had a plate of fish which was also excellent, and accompanied by french fries and mayonnaise salad.

    Aroma Cafe: Italian-style

    Interior decor
    4 more images

    Cafe Aroma is on the ground floor of the Khartoum Technology Academy building. The decor is supposed to be rustic with clay pots , a pergola and hanging plants, but the walls somehow failed- my grand-daughter said it looked like melted chocolate only light brown.
    Service was good, but only two tables were in use on the Friday lunchtime we went. However,it is busy in evenings and weekdays.
    The toilets are acceptable, though one cubicle lacked toilet tissue.

    Favorite Dish: Apple Juice Fizz @15 SDG per jug
    Chikki Frajitas @25 SDG
    Scalopino @22 SDg
    French Fries are free.
    tax and vat to 20% is added to basic charge.

    Solitaire Riyadh: cafe and restaurant

    by uglyscot Updated Sep 22, 2009

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The restaurant exterior

    The restaurant is fairly new and very popular as when we went most tables were occupied. The decor was not overpowering- wood, sandy coloured wallpaper, brick doorways and wooden [even if plastic!] dados.
    The service was quite good, but little touches were missing- the condiment set had splashes of sauce on the body of the bottles. The waitress managed to spill a bottle of Coke and glass of ice when she came to serve us.
    The dishes were tastefully arranged with an oriental touch.
    The menu gave plenty of choice and had Italian, Mexican, Chinese, and American dishes.
    There was little choice of desserts , so we passed.

    Favorite Dish: I ordered Chicken rolls "Solitaire style', which were like a Chicken Kiev with herbs in the filling and mozarella cheese- stringy and soft. The dish came with roasted vegetables and french fries, and a bowl of mayonnaise. I couldn't finish my portion, as I'd already tasted my daughter's Veal Emance zurichoise- a sort of beef stroganoff with mashed potatoes. The potatoes were not as dry and fluffy as I would make, but my daughter said they were less soggy than usual.

    All in all the meal was enjoyable.

    Salt n Pepper: what a menu

    by uglyscot Updated Sep 22, 2009

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This restaurant is very nice. The decor is unassuming, with an earth tone wall colour and wooden decoration. The service is good , but SLOW- maybe because we were a group of 20. There was a flat screen TV on one wall, with sound off. Toilets were clearly labelled.

    The menu was like reading a report. Such a lot of choice from soups, starters, international, Indian, pasta, barbecue, fish, chicken, deserts- you name it and the choice was vast.
    Prices were a bit over the top. A plate of rice was extortionate!

    We paid about 25 SDP per person

    Take aways are also available

    Favorite Dish: I had chicken meshwi- a half char-grilled chicken with onions and tomato. It was good. Everyone else was satisfied with their choice.
    The Pina Colada finished too quickly....

    Amwag: great takeaways

    by uglyscot Updated Sep 22, 2009

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    1. Takeaway
    This is a great place to get takeaway food for a change. You get a large size aluminium foil container with a large roll, two sticks of kebab [one lamb, one chicken], a decent piece of grilled chicken, a delicious piece of fish, pickles, some fries , a savoury roll and condiments.
    My husband and I usually share one as a snack, but many offices bring one container each when holding meetings .

    Favorite Dish: 2. Restaurant:
    Through from the busy takeaway area, is a restaurant on two floors. Downstairs it is mirrored. Service is excellent and the food superb. Clientele cosmopolitan , and families bring their children.

    For 23SDG you get a bowl of delicious soup, a large plate of salad and a main dish.
    The fish is very good- and I'm not a great fish eater! Then the mende- slow cooked lamb or chicken underground can be excellent. The kebabs are great, but I think I'll opt for the lamb cutlets as favourite.
