361A9530-as-Smart-Object-1-copyLusin is as authentic as you can get. They have delicious grilled meats and traditional appetizers that give you that tangy Armenian flavor.

Location: Centria Mall


Paul-10France is well known for its beautifully buttered pastries and sweet heavenly desserts. And thankfully, there’s plenty of that at Paul. This place is truly ooh la la, and as soon as you get there and take a spoonful of that Crème Brûlée, you’ll be very pleased.

Location: Thumama St.


VILLAVilla Restaurant is an underrated place that serves great Thai food. Get some red curry chicken, mango salad and tom yum soup to go and enjoy it while watching a movie with some good company.

Location: Oruba St.


subslide-1Romano’s Macaroni Grill has been making a good argument for casual Italian dining in the city. The interiors give a nice homey Italian vibe that perfect for the family, with serving size to match.

Location: King Abdulaziz Rd.


IMG_6478We love Chinese takeouts as much as the next person but if you’re looking for fine dining and Asian flavors, then you can’t go wrong with Hong. Their dumplings are sumptuous and the king prawns are indeed royalty.

Location: The Ritz-Carlton Riyadh


361A3481While there’s a lot of Japanese restaurants to choose from in Riyadh, for this taste bud adventure, we’re leaning towards Yokari. Simply because it’s a restaurant that would appeal to those who don’t necessarily have a taste for sushi (although their selection is equally good). Must try: The black cod.

Location: Centria Mall


Firegrill-03For a healthy spin on Mexican food, Fire Grill is a brilliant place that’s got you covered. Their rice bowls and burritos make all the difference. They even sing you a cool song when you order a burrito. That’s what we call a fiesta!

Location: Tahliya St.
