Our Jordanian friend first took us to this fancy place that looks like a palace on the outside (on Talateen street next to Ferarri). The decor is very nice and you can sit in a private room. The food was typical Arabic/Lebanese type to my palette, perhaps a little pricey for equivalent at Assariya but not bad by any means. Mixed grill and seafood soup were very food.

You will never regret your visit to this restaurant!!!!! EXCELENT food!!!!! If you like Sirian/Lebanese food this is the best place in Riyadh! It's an open buffet with plenty of delicious options from apetizers to main courses and deserts. It costs 150 SAR per person and it's worth it indeed!!! Besides one can make amazing pictures since the decoration and furniture of the restaurant are beautiful. Don't miss the best restaurant in Riyadh ever!!

I know places that are cheaper with better food and place to sit.
The food is not good at all and the staff are not helpful.
I would say it's more of a reputation than real

I loved the decor at Sit Elshaam restaurant, absolutely gorgeous. The food was very nice but portions are too small for such steep prices. I don't mind small portions so that food does not go to waste but then prices have to be adjusted accordingly. Worth going for the atmosphere but make sure you sit at the open table are and not in those little booths.

The restaurant is nicely decorated, high qualtiy finishes and the food is just great, as if you were eating in Damascus. Service is nice and the portions are quiet big.
Desert is average,
