We visited the abu halifa branch and it was simply awesome. The indian waiter helped us to get our fish made in indian spices, loved everything from food to ambience to service.

All is perfect, many varieties of cooking style and flavors. Waiters should be more aware of the available cooking style. They either should be good speaking Arabic or English, but bad on both is not an option.

We went there for dinner; the location is next to Kuwait towers on the seaside, good ambience and interior. Seafood is so fresh with different ways of cooking according to your taste. Staff are so friendly and helpful. I think the prices are reasonable and I recommend it

Many people spoke about the Fish Market restaurant so I went to try it with my mother & boys. I didn't make any reservations since it was a week day and didn't expect it to be full. I was greeted by a hostes and escorted to a table. I told them that I prefer another table to avoid the crowd.... More
