Sheraton Hotel | Al Bustan International Restaurant in Riyadh Review
Al Bustan Entrance
Last Monday we got a chance to try out, a fine dining restaurant in Riyadh. I am referring to Al Bustan International Restaurant located at Sheraton Riyadh Hotel & Towers along at King Fahad road. The restaurant offers breakfast, lunch and a variety of theme nights.

Me and my family have a chance to try out the Asian Theme Night. Al Bustan has a variety of food to offer on that night from Japanese, Thailand, Chinese and more. For Arabs, a great variety of salad to start up your appetite are available. Check our pictures.
There are lots of foods to choose from appetizers to main course. We arrived at about 7:00 PM. The theme night is open from 7:00 PM until 11:00 PM. We are welcomed by their staff with a smile. The staffs are well accommodating and they will make sure that you will get the first class service that you need. The theme nights differs everyday in a week.
The area is designed where the buffet table is in the middle of the room and guest could actually request for a food to be cooked in the middle of the buffet table as shown in the pictures below. Donâ€™t worry the room is well ventilated where nobody can smell what is cooking in the middle.
Guest can choose from a variety of raw food like chicken, beef and fish and more.Â Guest can ask the chef to cook for them, they could even request for any spices or sauce which are available in the buffet table. I think it could be done in any theme nights that they have.
We started our dinner with fresh juice, served with a smile. The kids started to check out the available food and since they want grilled food, they immediately asked the chef to make a mixed grilled so that they could tried out everything. The taste is really good. The kids love the grilled beef; the taste is perfect for their taste. My wife loves the taste of their grilled potato.
I started my dinner with a salad. Al Bustan has lots of salad to boast of. I tried a little of everything from Tuna Salad, Chicken Salad, Beef Salad and more and all I can say is that they have a good chef who prepares this salad. It is perfect for my taste. Those are actually not an Asian salad but an Arabic inspired salad.
Love this Beef Salad !
I have tried the corn and chicken soup; I could say that the soup taste good but there could be a space for improvement.
Chicken and Corn Soup
My wife tried the noodles and she loves it, she told me that this is one of the best noodles that she tried here in Riyadh. We often eat noodles because as you know a noodle is one of the favorites of Filipinos. So we can say if itâ€™s good or bad.
As part of my appetizer I also tried the nice looking Japanese Sushi. And it has a good taste. I love it.
After my appetizer and trying out the mixed grilled, I took my main course.
My main course consist of a little of everything, from fried rice, beef, chicken, and fish. On that night what they have is vegetable fried rice.
They also have a variety of dessert from Arabic sweets and Asian Sweets such as Cake, Gelatin (Gulaman), Leche Plan. (made from a mixture of egg yolk and sweetened evaporated milk) and more.
After my dinner they have provided us an Ice Cream from Baskin Robbins.
Of course my meal will not be completed without a freshly made Espresso.
It was a wonderful experience, the ambiance is great, love staff, the whole family enjoyed the night. (Is this a post birthday celebration? J )
Hope our readers could try out the same experience that I have.
