“Love the ship”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 8, 2012

If you are in Kuwait, I think yoou should pay this restaurant a visit. It's located inside a ship which gives you a sensation of the sea. The food was good too, yet am not a fish fan

“Great way to say I love you to the wife.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 2, 2012 via mobile

Wow, surprised me did this one. Great food great atmosphere and the service was good but not excellent. The food really was well prepared and presented and tasted as good as it looked and was more than enough for me. I will be going back more often. The only draw back is the parking and then the walk up and down the hill to the boat.

“Excellent Business Dining”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 30, 2012

Have been to AL Boom on several occasions for business dinners. The hostess and dining staff are all about excellent customer service. The dining area is actually a ship with period nautical fittings which adds to the ambiance. The salad bar has everything you could want. Steaks are cooked to perfection. They will even give you a postcard to fill out which they will mail to anywhere you would like as a souvenir. It is a great experience.

“Consistent Quality for over 30 years”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 28, 2012 via mobile

Boom is the local word for show or wooden ship. This restaurant is housed in a replica of a ship that belonged to the merchant Marafi family. The restaurant serves a sumptuous salad buffet followed by a main course of your choice of grilled fish, chicken, lobster, steak , prawns or a combination thereof.

I started going there 30 years ago and I still love it.

Some people might complain that it is too dark (being in a hull of a ship) but that is part of the ambiance.

Great place to take newcomer or visitors to Kuwait for the first time.

“seafood, service, ambiance”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 4, 2012

Great menu, service, and atmosphere! Just the spread of appetizers was enough for dinner, this was followed by an outstanding selection of fresh seafood entrees, which was followed by decadent desserts. The reputation of this place is well-deserved!
