A new twist on old themes

As a previous reviewer has pointed out it is a home furnishings shop.... nice kitchen stuff as well; and a restaurant. Last ate there last month for Iftar (after the day's fast). Like the Christmas dinner traditional themes were there but with a new - and expert twist. The slow roasted tomato soup... read more

I would never have realised there was a restaurant in this huge furniture shop - it's hidden away, upstairs in a corner,,,,, I've eaten here a few times. The atmosphere here is very homely - the restaurant is pretty unusual, insofar as the furnishings have price tags attached and are all very individual (I hope that makes sense....) - different...

An English tea garden minus the foliage! Excellent scones with clotted cream, great design your own pastas and salads and good a la carte choices. Reminiscent of eateries back home.

I love this restaurant/Cafe! Its in a fantastic furniture store in the Marina Mall. The food is really unusual compared with most fare in Kuwait, try the veg tart or any of the soups or salads. The menu changes for the seasons, but they keep some of the best stuff on all the time. And they even Cater for parties.... More

I still come here every weekend sometimes friday and saturday but lately i've been asking myself "why?" ..it takes forever to have someone take your order, when they finally do they get it wrong, the menu changed and though they kept some of the favourites some disappeared (why substitute the mushroom asparagus stroganoff for thai tofu, or a sweet salmon...

Great restaurant with lovely staff but management gave decided that the special breakfast price is no longer required. This means my money is also no longer required, a real shame.

It's a little cafe inside the Marina Mall... if you wanna take a rest from shopping and don't want a crowded place THE ONE is the place to go.

Ask for the "make your own" salad menu and enjoy an excellent dinner. Who knew that pea pods were also callled mange tout? I do now! The ingredients are always fresh and the service friendly. If you're out shopping in Marina Mall give The ONE a try and you'll be pleased. My only dislike is that the smoking eating area... More
