Finding Pakistani flavored Karahi and Kabab’s in Riyadh sounds like a blessing to us. After reading some views online, we decided to give a try to Spices Village, a restaurant located in Olaya near Kingdom Tower. As you enter the restaurant, the environment looks very calm and peaceful. On weekends, it is almost filled with families but the place is always tidy and clean which makes it our priority to have dinner when we are craving for Desi food.
After you place your order at the restaurant, you are served with this crispy fried Papars with green chutney. The appetizer is a good time pass while you are waiting for your delicious main menu. The Papars taste quite different and nice with green chutney which is not very spicy.
Last time, for our main menu, we ordered Boneless Chicken Handi with Beef Kabab, Naan and Rotis. The serving in traditional Handi (earthenware) gives a nice presentation.
The Boneless Chicken Handi was delicious. I liked the spiciness and tenderness of chicken. The gravy was rich in nature. It was priced at 35 SAR.
One plate of Beef Kabab has four pieces. It is just for 20 SAR. The kababs were so juicy, soft and perfectly cooked.
The Naans were very soft and chewy. Their Naans are the best so far I have tasted in Riyadh. You can also order Garlic Naan or Kalonji (fennel seed) Naans as well. They also taste nice with Karahi.
The service at Spice Village is great. Within 15 minutes of your order, you get your food. The staff is quick and efficient and they keep you asking if you need anything.
Spice village offers wide variety of traditional Desi food with Pakistani flavors. You can have a look at their detailed menu in the pictures below.
