Ahlan Wasahlan

The restaurant offers a wide selection of high-quality meat, seafood, and vegetarian dishes. Expect friendly service and Turkish flavours.


Ta'if is not particularly known for its restaurant scene, but there are quite a few local eateries scattered throughout the town. Grains such as wheat or rice and meats such as chicken or lamb constitute the bulk of Saudi cuisine (pork is normally not served in the country, as its consumption is forbidden by Islam). Yoghurt is often used in local cooking, and dates constitute a dessert staple. The signature dish to try when in Ta'if is a local variety of rice and milk pudding called "seleeg".
