I have been living in Jeddah for years but never heard about White Restaurant until recently when a friend of mine recommended it to me based on his experience " couple of years ago " when he had a nice meal in that restaurant with white luxurious furniture ( None of the furniture he described to me does exist any more). I decided to give it a try and I went for " Iftar " together with a friend. They have a special offer (170 Saudi Riyal for two persons ) during the first 10 days of the holy month of Ramadan..Not bad for an " Open " buffet as described or at least how they call it. Singles are seated in the ground floor while families in the first floor. The silly thing is that the so called "Open " buffet is located in the first floor , which means that you have to take the stairs to go to the first floor to bring food...Very stupid idea and not practical at all. Imagine the traffic on the stairs with people having dishes in their hands , really terrible. The atmosphere is not nice at all although the staff is friendly but the layout of tables is not good, in addition there's a screen on which they were showing football game , is this a Restaurant !!??!! First there was no Audio but later on they put the Audion ON with all the noise the game. The Air conditioning is very noise , it sound like a plane over your head.There's a huge fan unit close to the screen right over the head of the people sitting there and which generate a very loud and annoying noise.
Now about food quality, what can I say...Its way below average , it taste like frozen food. Imagine they had chicken escalope but nothing goes with it , no potato , no vegetables ... The same for fish with a strange red sauce. No salt or pepper on tables, no Catchup or sauce !! The table is barefoot...You can't tell to which cuisine the food belongs too. I didn't like the fact that someone was smoking on the table next to us, this is really BAD !!!
One funny thing is that people from the street were standing in front of the restaurant watching the football game throughout the window. In brief, The restaurant has no identity , food quality is not good and the atmosphere is not encouraging.

The food is delicious, the location is suitable, on Sari street, the ambiance is unique, it is only mising the 'hooka' that was banned in most resturants.
