Fine dining Lebanese restaurant Taleel opens in Riyadh

The menu spans soup and salads, hot and cold appetisers, and tajine and rice.

Longing for Lebanese food? Well, you’re in luck. Taleel has opened in Riyadh, and is filled with traditional dishes. Located on King Abdullah Branch Road in Al Quds District, here’s what to expect.

Taleel in Riyadh’s tagline is “when fine dining meets arts and culture”. The menu spans soup and salads, hot and cold appetisers, tajine and rice, mains and desserts. The dishes include an Armenian Tabbouleh, Kibbeh Labanieh and Tabbouleh Salad.

Taleel in Riyadh is easy to spot, thanks to its grand green exterior and white logo. The entrance includes a shimmering chandelier, high ceiling and floor-to-ceiling windows. The décor boasts a monochrome vibe with black and white tiles, dark leather seats and white walls, which are punctuated by gorgeous greenery.

The dining room includes a dramatic indoor tree with white leaves and plenty of potted plants. The venue is spread across two levels, and there is a statement wooden staircase. Take your pick from seats under the pretty lights or in the booths with curved walls for extra privacy.
