Have been to this place many times. It's not expensive, but there are few things which makes the overall experience "Average". Wait time to get the table during weekends is too much.

This place is great, whether you want to eat in or get food delivered. The value is great, taste is great. This is one of the few places that actually delivers food out in the desert in Kuwait, just send them the drop pin, amazing.

Loved the whole concept..the decor and atmosphere, no reservations policy. Food was tasty and not pricey. Exactly what I was looking for on a short holiday to try something very traditional.

The food is not tasty at all. The person who knows khaleeji food he would know how bad the food was. The atmosphere is crowded and noisy. Plus you have to tip the waiters to get a table without waiting.
