The food was good but nothing special. Over priced which is not acceptable. The service was so bad. I prefer to spend money in other place.

As usual, Al Sanbook remains the best restaurant for fine dining in Al Khobar. It is the best by far. Mr. Orlanda is doing his best to achieve 100% satisfaction for all customers. He is very professional. Food is super delicious.
