I love it

The place is nice for a family day out, you can have your coffee or tea in one of the coffee shops and restaurants in front of the marina. Good for shopping, cinema and walking.

A huge iconic mall located alongside the beach so everything has a sea view. Has everything: a fish market, restaurants, childrens play area, cinema, and more. Well worth the visit.

The architecture is traditional Persian, similar to what is found in Bastak in southern Iran. It is modeled after wind-catchers (badgir). This type of architecture was common in Kuwait before the discovery of oil. The mall itself has lots to offer and includes a fish market.

Sharq mall is pretty clean, however you can't spend sometime there you just go if you need to buy something from specific shop or from the hypermarket, it's few steps from the hotel I'm accommodating in but I would take a taxi to go to any other malls which have some excitement
