Another notable participant is Chef O'Bern, one of world's leading chefs who holds two Michelin stars at his restaurant Arkin. Many other chefs are also presenting a selection of their restaurants’ respective signature dishes and will offer new ones inspired by Saudi cuisine especially for the festival with an innovative presentation.

The festival also features prestigious restaurants such as Club Gascon and Elastin Street from London, Sylvester Wahid at Themix Hotel, Ida from Paris, Olmsted and Maison Yaki restaurants from New York, and Arkin from Hong Kong.
