    The place is good, many filipino go to these restaurant. Quality and quantity over price is good.

    Favorite Dish: Chicken broasted here is very good, you can choose between kubos or kapsa rice. Plus they will give you potato fries. Price is at 8 riyal. You'll get half of the chicken divided into four.

    there are a lot of shops in this road. mostly are (I think) influenced by the filipinos. This place is good because this is near the beach.

    What to buy: There are lot of things to buy in here, (clothing, food, grocery, eletronic equipment etc....) even most of the banks are in this street.

    What to pay: just search for cheap stores in here.

    2. NEVER TAKE PICTURES in the street, mosque, banks or any oil company if u don't want Saudi policemen to catch you and put you in jail.

    3. NEVER ATTEMPT TO TALK TO LADIES outside even if with same nationality (unless you are husband & wife - but don't forget to bring a copy of your marriage contract); otherwise you will be in great trouble!

    4. NEVER BRING BIBLE OR ANY CHRISTIAN IMAGES for obvious reason that they are our Muslim brothers. Respect their beliefs or you may not be able to return to your home country alive.

    7. NEVER CELEBRATE CHRISMAS even in a private room 'coz some policemen are roving around and they might search for some parties being held during this day and who knows---all of you might celebrate Christmas in jail.

    8. NEVER DRINK ALCOHOLIC DRINKS (homemade alcohols - SADIQUI) or else, jail is waiting for you.
