Shawarma Mama Noura
The décor isn't glamorous or luxurious; at times it can be crowded and noisy but that's because everyone is lining up for the best shawarma in town and value for money, and Mama Noura is worth the visit.
While there may be plenty of 'nice' places to eat in Riyadh, this is the place to try something authentic, fresh and tasty local food alongside locals.
Phone ahead unless you are prepared to join a long queue before placing a chaotic order. Despite being packed with people, service is usually fast thanks to the speedy, hardworking Turkish staff.
Priced low to mid-range, expect moderately spiced and well-cooked sandwiches, middle eastern food, cous cous, barbecue grill, savoury pastries, pizzas, falafel, baba ganoush and amazing juices.
