Furusato: Fresh Japanese food in Riyadh
We've been looking for a Japanese restaurant in Riyadh and finally we found one and it was recommended by family friends.
Furusato, I heard about it in the Phil. and it has 2 branches located in manila and makati, I never realized there is one branch here in Riyadh it is the most expensive restaurant we ever tried but it’s definitely great and worth, the food is fresh and the ambience of the place is very warm and peaceful. They have numerous room and cubicles with nice decors.
They offer fresh sushi, sashimi, tempura, sea food special, beef teriyaki etc..etc.. I love it all and absolutely I am a Japanese food lover.
Favorite Dish: I love the california roll, sashimi and sea food special.

The Family section is on the 2nd floor with pretty stained glass designed the service is good and waiters are dressed up well.

KOREAN PALACE (Bee Won): Korean food!!

We chose this restaurant to celebrate our 9th year wedding anniversary, we had a great dined in here and enjoyed the Korean and Japanese food we ordered. They offer buffet every Thursday 6-10 pm and so offering catering service and party reception.
The building exteriors and interiors are quite old, their motif is red with some unique decors, it has a spacious reception at the ground floor, second floor is the main area for single section and family section.
Favorite Dish: I like their korean BBQ with korean side dishes
Mama Noura Juice Center: Shaurma

TOI Taste of India Restaurant: Most hygienic yet low priced Indian Food in Riyadh
During my frequent business trips to Riyadh, TOI Taste of India restaurant in Batha Main street is a never-miss place for me. A neatly set place, TOI offers Indian delicacies with a difference. I love the biryanies, Indian layered flat bread (parottas) with rich curry varieties, tandoori chicken and some South Indian ethnic dishes. The best part I like is the lowest prices one can expect in its class and the friendly service of the guys there. I liked the broasted chicken but the french fries and sauces are a bit unsavoury. And the South Indian meals featuring rice and hot curries are not recommended unless you are adventurous enough.
The downside is the congestion in Batha and parking problems however I have learnt to overcome it by parking behind the SAMA headquarter building and walk through the alleys traversing the bustling 'life' that has become somewhat an excitement to me.
TOI is located in Batha Main street, near the second pedestrian cross bridge, near Shifa Al Jazeera Poly Clinic and behind Mist multi-shop
Favorite Dish: The best combination I had from TOI was chicken tandoori, parotta (Indian layered flat bread) with what they call 'beef supreme'. You may request the beef mild as the regular can be too fiery.

Sizzler House: Dont Miss the Sizzling Food
I have been to Riyadh just few days back. My friend took me a restaurant named 'Sizzler House'. It is located on the Tahlia street near Al Araba petrol pump. On the outside, its colors and decor feel you like you are appearing a cozy, warm place. On the inside, its even better. They have a waiter greeting on the entrance and suggesting a table based on your friends with you.
The whole restaurant has a cool atmosphere with the most stress relieving seating cushions. Each of us were provided menus very elegantly and we ordered 3 dishes from it. The food arrived to the table warm and mouth watering aroma. It was a ever reminding experience. I recommend my friends and you readers to visit this restaurant.
Favorite Dish: Shrimp Fahita because of its nice aroma and taste. Also because I love shrimps.

Buffalo Southwest Cafe - Tahaliya Street Riyadh: Smokin' Buffalo Wings
Simply amazing...I've been there twice already. Good for families too as its got a special kids zone.
I've written a review on my personal blog http://samzplanet.blogspot.com/.
Favorite Dish: Buffalo Chicken Wings, Chicken del rio etc.
Gulf Royale: Gulf Royale
Gulf Royale offers Chinese and other Asian cusines. The foods were all served fresh and hot though nothing special about the taste. All of the foods that we tried were all ordinary to the taste.
Their Chicken Satay doesn't even have a peanut sauce which is a must for the said course.
So, if you would ask me if i would dine at this resto again..i would say no..there are lots of chinese/japanese resto that is worth the money.
Les Bernaches: Mercure Hotel
We celebrated our 3rd wedding anniversary here at Les Benchaes.The in house resto of Mercure Hotel.
The selection of food is surprisingly very limited - for soup, appetizer and even for main course. The only consolation you'll get is the dessert. I've tried all of it and they were all equally good!
The price is bit pricey for the food, service and ambience.
AL Bustan ~ Sheraton Hotel: Take your Pick
Al Bustan is one of the in-house resto of Sheraton Hotel (Riyadh) aside from La Piazza Resto. They have themed buffet everyday of the week (for the month of October) e.g. BBQ night, Asian Cuisine, Seafoods Night, Greek and Mid Eastern are just a few.
The waiters are all attentive with the needs of their guests. They also provide special gifts/toys for kids/children.
The selection of food is really great. Served fresh and hot!
**The themed buffet varies every month
Favorite Dish: I Love their Salmon, Maki's and their mouth watering desserts!
I've read from a fellow Pinoy blogger that DUO restaurant (pronounced as "DIO"" offers delish Italian food. And so, Abdul adn I decided to try it.
The place is so nice especially the open area for family section. It is like a typical restaurant though they provide cubicle type of seating for family section.
The open area boasts with high ceiling, lamp posts and beautifully decorated walls and windows.
We tried their chicken breast with 3 pepper sauce and chicken in mushroom sauce...the verdict? both are ok and would give 3 stars out of 5.
The dessert is divine..it's Chocolate fondant.The rating? 5 out of 5
They have buffet for 95SR inclusive of drinks between 6-8pm during Ramadan.
They open from 6pm til 12 midnight during regular days while they are open til 2am during the Holy month of Ramadan.
They add 15% service charge from the total amount.
Favorite Dish: Chicken breast with 3 pepper sauce _ 42SR
Chicken im mushroom sauce - 42SR
Softdrinks - 7SR
Chocolate Fondant - 25SR
Diamond Restaurant: Diamond Restaurant
We celebrated Valentine's Day here at Diamond Restaurant. As recommended by friends, it is a very romantic place to celebrate special events but with the company of my then 8 month old daughter, it was like eating in a regular food chain. Don't get me wrong..i enjoyed it but the romantic part was kinda unnoticeable for me.
Anyway, the food are all great..attentive waiters and the whole place/ambience is really nice. Dim lights with red and gold color effect!
There are cubicle type tables but its nice to see open tables next to each other..something new for me for a restaurant in Riyadh (except for Spazzio in Al Mamlakah)
We had crabcakes, Chicken Fried rice, chicken with cashew nuts..a complimentary dessert plus a refreshing green tea wrapped up our dinner
Pizza Amore: Pizza Amore
Pizza Amore is one of the many restaurants located along Tahlia St. An area where high end restos can be found. They have single section at the ground floor while family section at the second level. We actually had a hard time goign up to the 2nd floor coz there was no elevator and the stairs is so steep.
The interior is really nice with red orange color combination but its not really that spacious..Food presentation is really good but the amount of serving is far beyond my expectation for such an expensive price.
We ordered for a salad, Raviolli and Pepperoni Pizza (in house specialty plus its made of homemade dough)
The Raviolli taste good but not even good for a single serving. The salad was ok but the pizza was a total disappointment. The taste was so plain! They have complimentary bruschettas and fresh breads
I read lots of positive reviews from trip advisor that they have really nice pizza but for me it didn't pass my taste..Well, we have our own judgement and palettes.
