It's not often that you get to eat inside an actual vintage wooden sailing ship. The ambience is lovely and not too kitschy. The appetizer buffet is comprehensive and delicious. Although the main courses are pricey, the food is delicious, well presented, and service is outstanding.

I wanted an early dinner so I reserved at 6 pm tonight. I wanted to have lobster so I ordered the grilled one based on the recommendation of the waiter ... Started with the buffet salads which was acceptable, but when the grilled lobster arrived, I was shocked ... Two small half tails, grilled to a maximum and burned. It... More

I went to Al Boom for a family get together. I had reserved my table but when I reached there I realised that there was no need of reserving the table as it was half empty.( mebbe cos it was a weekday). The staff was very helpful and courteous. The starters and salads were self served and plentiful, so you... More

This traditional dhow restaurant in a purpose-built Boom starts with a massive selection of salads, soups, breads and other starter dishes, buffet style. You then chose your main course, cooked to order, steak and seafood. Finished off with dessert. I found the steak too salty and peppery for my taste and the whole mean was exorbitantly expensive for a three... More

One very interesting experience that should not be missed. The boat is absolutely gorgeous. The service is amazing & the food, we'll let me put it this way, if you don't get the steak & lobster, the food is amazing. I had the paneer makhni (one of the best ever) & my sister had the zubaidi fish (local), which was... More

When you walk into a restaurant shaped like a boat, you might assume (and you're often right) that it's the décor and surroundings that are the main attraction. Not so at Al Boom. From the variety of fresh fruit drinks to the rich buffet and the main courses, everything here is carefully done to maintain quality. You get a generous... More

We had a wonderful time eating at Al Boom. The Staff was fun, friendly, and helpful. The food was GREAT! There were 5 of us, each ordered something different, and we all truly enjoyed the food and took some "home" with us. The "buffet" for starters and sides was plentiful! I would definitely go again.

I was here when they first brought the boat into Kuwait. An amazing restaurant, but a bit cramped The food is very good, the waiters are courteous, there is nothing NOT to like.

Having eaten here a couple of times before we knew what to expect. It's a fun place to take friends & family who are visiting us in Kuwait as it's set inside a traditional wooden dhow (Kuwaiti fishing boat). The selection of starters from the buffet is the high point of the food (the selection from the main courses on... More
