Going for an Indian with British colleagues without having a few pints before!

I thought that was funny. I went there twice in the same week with different colleagues. The food is very good, the service very professional. The spicy sauce with the poppadoms is seriously spicy, by the way.Watch out how much you order, the portions are substantial.

Best Japanese restaurant in Jeddah

Prices have increased slightly since last time we were here 3 years ago but the quality is still the best, easily the best Japanese restaurant in Jeddah.The sashimi boat was the star that night. Plenty of premium stuff on it, 5 types of fish, octopus, squid, sweet prawns, bamboo clams, scallops or hotate and half of a cored lemon skin acted as a vessel to hold the salmon roe.The sushi boat was good too but the second best all night. The beef curry rice was overpriced. In fact I would say the beef and chicken dishes are priced at a premium.Thank you so much for spending the time to review Sakura Restaurant. Your feedback is highly appreciated, looking forward to see you again soon. to receive all our updates please follow us onFacebook: @sakuracpjInstagram: @sakuracpjSnapchat: @sakuracpjSincerely, Sakura Restaurant,
