I have been to this restaurant many times (and their previous location further down the gulf road which was somewhat more down to earth). The food is simple and tasty and the home delivery service is also good. I'd recommend the chicken livers in pomegranate sauce!

If you're prepared to invest in a good meal, it's tough to go wrong with Mais Alghanim. Their food is fantastic and their service is excellent. I've never visited the Kuwait City location, but I had their delivery (be prepared to wait for it) and dined in at the Mahboula location. The Mahboula location has fantastic atmosphere, very clean and... More

Mais AlGhanim is , i think, the first reasturant to offer Lebanese food in Kuwait. They have a daily fish in addition to the fixed menue. The food is tasty and the price is good.

Mais AlGhanim is a very large and popular Lebanese restaurant. Their menue is extensive and the food is very good. The service is a tad slow yet it's worth the wait. Be prepaired to wait for a table or go early (before 13:30 for lunch - before 19:30 for dinner). Enjoy

The food served wasn't very good. Place does not live up to the over-the-top hype that it gets from the local community, quite average!
