    Steak House: Consistently classic soup and salad

    by MirrorCrax Written Jul 22, 2010

    steak house is a locally developed brand of steak restaurants who has earned itself a prominent place in the hearts and minds of both locals and experts alike. It's most notable sales edge is the all-you-can-eat soup and salad buffet, which is always fresh and tasty.

    The service, cleanliness and decor are excellent, and although they don't change their menu as frequently as friday's, applebee's and chilis, their consistent standards of high quality, cleanliness, freshness, good taste and service are notable, and assuring for many people.

    they have increased their prices several times in the past 6 years, but they're still worth it.

    I personally appreciate the smokey mountain chicken with baked potatoe and vegetables and soup and salad, which is extremely filling, especially with refill on soft drinks

    they also have a wide selection of steaks cooked to your liking, with the option of having it continue cooking infront of you (the black rock steaks)

    they have a a nice kid's area, and maintain excellent health and hygiene standards

    they've been having a special lunch special from saturday to thursday up to 3pm which i think is 35 sar for a sandwich, side item, soft drink (refillable) and open buffet soup and salad, which i think is very filling and excellent value for money

    Favorite Dish: personally appreciate the smokey mountain chicken with baked potatoe and vegetables and soup and salad, which is extremely filling, especially with refill on soft drinks

    I'm not big on steak, but the sirloin is ok, although it used to be thicker in the past

    also the new-world fajits is nice if you're in a mood of trying out several things, dipping and rolling , it used to be served in bigger portions 2 years ago, now its just ok for one person

    by anees Updated Jul 3, 2007

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    They have started their business with a hole in the wall sandwich shop some 15 years ago as i think, but now, they turned to become the most successful sandwich chain in town, with a very good business. and I love eating their sandwiChs.
    They have several branchs including two in down town Qatif, one in Alquds street, one in Saihat town.
    Qatif is about 20 km north Dammam city,

    Favorite Dish: All kind of sandwiches in very good prices. They have space for you to setdown and eat your food, and you can take your sandwiches out. You may prefer to set by the nearby sea side.

    Dammam fish market: Don't miss the fresh Sea Food

    by MirrorCrax Updated Feb 22, 2007

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This is basically a source of fresh fish of all kinds with the best prices you could get. There's a huge gap between restaurant prices for fish and what you get there at the fish market, it's just fun to go there and check out the fresh fish even if you won't buy.

    One of the signs you could look for to know if the fish is fresh is checking the eyes if they are bright and white circle is still there then it's still fresh another sign is if the gills are still bright red, the darker it becomes the older the fish is.

    Be warned that there a couple of tricks sellers may have when selling shrimps specifically, where they may put some big shrimps on a pile and tell you the whole pile is for the price of big shrimps and then when they start bagging they'll bag smaller shrimps for you which are beneath the few bigger ones...

    After you buy the fish (make sure the vendor cleans it) you may take it one of two kitchens who will cook it for you in one of three ways (grilled, fried or baked) for a real low price, you could also buy the rice, salad and drinks from there, usually in grilling each kilo is for 5 riyals

    Lokmety: Experience the Egyptian Koshary

    by MirrorCrax Written Jan 19, 2007

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This buffet has just the regular, not a fancy place really, but it has Egyptian Koshary, which is a mix of rice, macaroni, lentils, homos, fried onions, and tomatoe sauce, and its amazing!

    I personally like to buy a medium koshary plate, a shawerma plate, and then dip the shawrma in the garlic sauce then mix it with the koshary plate and eat it all togther, very filling, very garlicy, but very tasty!

    Chinese Garden: Chindian restaurant

    by MirrorCrax Written Jan 19, 2007

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This place is (((((supposedly))))) chinese, and it (((((Supposedly))))) serves chinese food, but it doesn't!

    It serves chinese food with Indian dubbing, the chicken sweet and sour, wasn't sour at all, was actually some lumps of chicken swimming in a red spicy liquid, and the rest of the food followed the same scenario!

    Beef ala Szechuan :Those beef strips which were supposed to be hot and somewhat thin and a bit crispy, were real soggy and sweet

    Not recommeded for anyone expecting REAL chinese food!

    Favorite Dish: none

    Al Bahar: not only seafood restaurant -Al Bahar

    by MirrorCrax Written Jan 19, 2007

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Al Bahar means the cpatain in arabic or just something related to the sea, but this restaurant doesn't only serve sea food but also other dishes, such as roat chicken, salads, bbq stuff ...etc.

    I used to go their for the fish at first, untill i discovered the fish market and the possibility of getting fresh fish there and grilling them there for almost half as much as in Bahar, and since we eat in the family section which has the cubicle sort of dining area, we figured ot, we'd just buy from the market and eat at home, but if the cubicle is ok with you, it does have good food after all!

    Tip: don't buy the fish fillets coz you get very small portions for much more than a whole fish

    Favorite Dish: Seafood soup

    Grilled Lobster

    The restaurant has dine-in, take-away and home-delivery.
    The ambience isn't that great neither for singles section nor family section, but the food itself is great, they serve lebanese food primarily with a hint of other arab dishes. and the service is above average.

    Favorite Dish: Taboula Salad
    Chicken Cream Soup

    A general guide to eating out in Dammam

    by MirrorCrax Written Sep 24, 2006

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    There aren't many poch restaurants in Dammam, but if we could pin point the concentration areas such as food courts with a lot of fast food places and some restaurants, marina mall and shaea'mall would be a good bet on the dammam corniche road, on first street there are a lot of lebanese restaurants such as abu-nawas, barbar and filfila, there's also dominoes pizza, subway, kudu, basma and others....

    Don't go for sea food in restaurants in Dammam, go to the fish market directly, select the fish you want and have them cooked in the kitchen there, otherwise you'll be in for a real high price for little portions in the limited number of sea food restaurants around
