Saudi Arabian restaurant Wadi is opening in Riyadh's Laysen Valley



The new concept will launch before the end of the year.

We love Saudi Arabian cuisine at FACT, so we're excited about this latest foodie news – Wadi is coming to Laysen Valley in Riyadh. Scheduled to open before the end of 2023, the new restaurant will specialise in Saudi fusion cuisine. 

When we visited Laysen Valley, we spotted the hoarding for Wadi. The name comes from the Arabic word for river. The concept aims to combine high-quality ingredients and a luxurious atmosphere to create a one-of-a-kind experience. Plus, it will offer a shisha menu.

Wadi Laysen Valley

So far, we know that Wadi in Laysen Valley will be designed by Paul Bishop. Founded in 2014, the award-winning design firm is based in Dubai and Miami. The group are responsible for exceptional designs across the region in hospitality, retail and residential projects. 

Even if you've never heard of Paul Bishop, we're confident you'll have spotted some of his work. His design hits include the restaurants BOHO Social, En Feugo, Sumosan and Torno Subito. Plus, the hospitality projects include Paradise Harbour Club & Marina Hotel, Rotana Rayhaan and SLS Hotel & Residences Dubai.

Wadi Laysen Valley

Laysen Valley is located near Riyadh's Diplomatic Quarter. The area combines restaurants, residences, retail, hotels and offices. Laysen Valley is home to an exciting range of restaurants. Most recently, Bagatelle Riyadh opened in the area and we were one of the first people inside to review the restaurant.
