Burger King

Reviewed By AbuHammad - Salmiyah, Kuwait

Still one of our few fast food places that just does not feel like fast food when it comes to the quality. The bread, the burger patty and the salad still pretty good.

Al Boom Steak and Seafood

Savor the charcoal-grilled seafood, steak and other specialties of Al Boom. Kuwait visitors will want to experience this unique dining venue aboard a traditional Arabic dhow. Sumptuous teak with gold-leaf accents gives this landlocked vessel the atmosphere of luxury sailing. Complete your VIP experience with expertly brewed coffee in the Captain's Diwaniya.

Reviewed By Daniel S - California

The restaurant is inside of a converted sailing ship that is permanently built into the landscape near the Radisson Blu Hotel. It is not on the water, but on land and it is totally stable. It is a steak and seafood restaurant. They take major credit cards, and can take large parties. We found the staff to be great, with attentive service and the food was very good. The main dish selections all come with access to a large variety of appetizers and salad items that would be sufficient to be a meal on their own if one wished as well as desserts. Like almost everywhere in Kuwait, the establishment is dry with no alcohol being legal to be served. You can expect equivalent of $70-$90 per person to visit for the inclusive meal. Being at a very nice hotel, the price seemed normal to me for the quality of the meal and service. I would advise to go try it if in a group, but maybe not as a lone individual.

The Early Bird

Reviewed By AOmeiri - Kuwait City, Kuwait

It’s not easy to find the place, and my recommendation is to be an early bird since the place is small with few indoor and outdoor tables and gets full easily. Everything was tasty and the portions are huge, the staff is pleasant despite being busy

Mais Alghanim

The history of Mais Alghanim Restaurant dates back to the previous century when our founding father Edmond Barakat (Abu Emile), opened a canteen for the employees of Yusuf Ahmed Alghanim & Sons Co., called “Mess Alghanim”.Over time, strong ties and personal relations grew between Abu Emile, Kuwaiti, and Expatriate Families extending over three phases and three generations. The first phase commenced in 1953 during which complete meals and take-away services were offered transforming the canteen into a restaurant for one and all.In 1974, Emile Barakat (Abu Edmond) presided over the business from his late father marking the beginning of the second phase. Under his leadership, the restaurant moved to the old Kuwait Television station in 1987 where it was registered at the Ministry of Commerce and Industry in the name of Yusuf Ahmed Alghanim & Sons Co. It was at this time that the name was changed from“Mess Alghanim” to “Mais Alghanim”.Abu Edmond’s vision brought Mais Alghanim forward into the beginning of the third phase in 2003, to its present location, a building of true traditional Kuwaiti design, preserving the heritage and genuine tradition. With further development of this phase, Mais Alghanim continued the journey of hospitality by opening its doors to welcome guests at a new location in Mahboula in 2010.Hence, after more than 50 years of successful service, the late Abu Edmond’s brothers and eldest son continue to welcome you with the same spirit through Generations of Genuine Hospitality, and Good Food

SOLO Pizza Napulitana

“Pizza unites” was the message and the journey was long. The passion sparked in 2000 at Pizza Ciro, and all that came after was a fire to bring the true taste of Neapolitan pizza to Kuwait. A series of trials and error in the backyard with nothing but enthusiasm and a wood-fired oven. It was time to dig a little deeper and pursue it a little harder, with the help and guidance of Pizzaioli such as Enzo Coccia, Giulio Adriani shaped and kneaded the concept of simplicity and personality in our own pizza dough, with God’s blessing and patience SOLO was cultivated in the heart of Sharq, the taste of Napoli was born in Kuwait in 2011. #GodBless

City urban ‘underground’ atmosphere - little to no traffic and close to building yard but no noise from that but gives an interesting big city atmosphere.
Pleasant service and the pizzas are crispy and topped with fresh ingredients.
Next door is a strange outdoor hanging-out place with non-italian style music that put us off unfortunately.

Le Pain Quotidien

Reviewed By Ghadeer2014 - Kuwait City, Kuwait

I had a big and delicious salad at Le Pain Quotidien, Marina Crescent. The menu listed 10 different salads. I had the Quinoa salad with green lentils, cabbage and avocado..etc. the size of this salad was a main meal. It was satisfying in a healthy way. I had Watermelon cooler for a nice refreshing drink. It is December now and the weather is cool. I highly recommend the marina cafes for a relaxing family time and with friends.
