Extremely different with a cool and chill atmosphere, good food with a twist! If you are with friends I recommend to take the sliders burgers as are fun for everyone on the other hand stay away from ordering more than one pizza as it will be delivered with intervals of over 4/5 minutes between each pizza! Staff below average knowledge! Just desperately in need of training!! Also on the other hand the restaurant host and the manager can make up for the rest of the staff as they are extremely good and helpful! Overall was a nice evening with enjoyable good food and really unique ambience!! Well-done!!

B+F is different.... It is not just a restaurant or a burger joint. It is a concept. It is not just the food, not just the environment, not just the music. Most of the execution of the concept is very satisfactory. Food is very good in the sense that when imaginative it goes beyond limits, when standard the quality (eg. the actual meat in the Sliders) is very good. It is not as noisy as other burger joints; it seems that the music and the overall "darkness" helps to this direction. Staff needs more training, again so as to adapt and comply to the overall concept. Drinks could have been more imaginative. The Tokyo salad is a must. B+F needs a little bit more time to settle as a total offer and - then - it could excel as a unique proposition in Kuwait.

This is my favorite place to eat in Kuwait. I really believe they've done it right and they do everything best: appetizer, main course, deserts, and drinks!

It's really famous in Kuwait for having the best burgers and sliders. The price is pretty reasonable in Kuwait and the atmosphere is amazing yet a little dark, but you'll still feel like you're in another world. The name came from the central huge open grill in the middle of the restaurant, you can see the chef cooking burgers and steaks with flames flying up!

This is my recommended list to order:
Appetizer: Dynamite Fries / Chopped or Tokyo Salad / Dynamite Shrimp
Main Dish: Rome Burger or Midnight Sliders.
Drink: Burnt Wood
Desert: Red Velvet Chocolate Lava

One point to help you plan your experience there, the restaurant get really busy and most of the time it is full, but the good thing is that it is located at the 2nd best mall in Kuwait "360 Mall", so first go to the restaurant to book your place and give them you phone number, walk around the mall for some shopping and looking around until they call you :)

Good luck and Enjoy!

Every time I am in Kuwait I just have to pass by b+f. Surprisingly, it's one of the best restaurants I have ever been to.

Let's start with the pros: 1. Great setup; 2. Friendly and attentive staff; 3. AMAZING FOOD

Now to the cons: 1. If you go there durning the evenings you may end up queuing for 45min to get in (you cannot reserve in advance), still totally worth it; 2. The food is on the expensive side, yet again, totally worth it


Tip: don't stick with a main dish, order some of the starters (e.g. Tenderloin lollipops, coca cola ribs, the spicy fries with melted cheese, etc.), as each one is an experience in and of itself

Well then, B+F seems to be one of the best choices in Kuwait. The design of the store is very contemporary and very original. The dark colors and the excessive use of metal make the place full of mystery but also relaxing after a day full of shopping. The fact that they do not make reservations is one of the very negatives that I could mention. The service is towards the customers is professional and efficient with no delays or faults. However, the waiters should act more professionally to each other and not fool around when they think that customers do not see them. The food is of high standards and for Kuwait I would say exceptional! Tokyo salad is one of the most inspired and tasty salads ever had. Sliders are a great idea especially if you do not want to eat a lot so you can share with your partner. The burgers are really tasty and seems to be or good quality of meet. The complementary “wanna be champagne” non alcoholic beverage at the beginning is a very nice gesture on behalf of the restaurant and it gives a nice flair. Overall, it is a place that we will be visiting constantly.
