Reydan restaurant, Jeddah…great restaurant where the locals go

This place has some seriously fantastic food. They serve a traditional bedouin feast, where a selection of food is placed on the floor in the centre of a ring of seated guests. Makbus and Lahm Mindi (casserole of meat, usually lamb, or chicken with rice) are particular favourites. The lamb biryani, slow roasted lamb shank buried in a mound seasoned basmati rice made with walnuts and raisins was great too.

“THIS TASTES SO GOOD”… that is what goes through my mind every time I take a bite. The chunks of lamb are tender, juicy and bursting with flavor.

Overall everything was great and plenty of food for us.  Didn’t cost that much either.  Very nice find.  Only one minor note, the workers there are a bit hard to understand and may not understand you that well so you may have to repeat yourself or go with someone who speaks Arabic.  However, to me that’s a sign of a very authentic and delicious place. This is the true truth because I always say it as it is…
