“Real Caribbean Taste”
Reviewed November 27, 2013

Okay so like I have bought take out from here quite a few times and I have also eaten inside the restaurant. I have never written a review on this place because I did not think they would need my review. Kinda funny how most customers think like that. If it wasn't for this joint I would never get to eat any affordable Caribbean food here in Kuwait. There is one other place but it does not really have that feel of a meal cooked with the love my mum and grand mum always cooked with. The Chef is an actual Caribbean boy from Puerto Rico who knows what he is doing and does it with a passion that I don't see in other joints out here that only want to get your money. When I see the place busy with satisfied customers I always think to myself that its great to see a a fellow West Indian doing good so far away from home.

“If there are 30 better restaurants in Kuwait, I have yet to find most of them...”
Reviewed November 25, 2013

Caribbean Hut continues to do what it does best - serve simple homecooked food to a high standard.

If you are going home with a smile and a full stomach for less that KWD3.5 per head, I don't believe you can beat it for value for money.

Yes you can get better facilities, decor and music if you are happy to pay KWD10-15 per head elsewhere, but I believe that Caribbean Hut continues to punch way above its weight by offering a personal touch, a chef who is passionate about what he serves and a chef's father who so wants to see this establishment succeed.

On to of this, still the best free wifi in Kuwait.

We had Empanadas, Shrimp Mofongo, Cuban and Puerto Rican stews and leche flan to finish...

And I agree with an earlier reviewer - The Pina Coladas are to die for!!!

“Still going strong!!!”
Reviewed November 23, 2013 via mobile

So its been a while since I have been able to go to my favorite restaurant do to my job. I was sooooo happy to be able to go last month. I had me some mofongo de camarron ( shrimp ), some tostones, empanadillas, flan and the best Piña Colada any where in this part of the world. I was even surprised to see that they dropped a spot on the top ten list. Every time I have been there I see satisfied customers so it surprises me that there arent more excellent reviews. I hope this guys keep going and serving Puerto Rican food for decades to come.

“Tasty food and nice friendly atmosphere”
Reviewed November 23, 2013

Tasty simple food. Friendly service....As it was our first visit and not knowing Caribbean food the owner was more than happy to explain the type(s) of food on the menu. In the end we asked him to choose for us...we were not disappointed. We left with full stomachs and a smile on our face...What more do you want? We were 4 happy diners from different countries (Bangladesh,Iran,Thailand & England) so no matter your culture give it a try.....

“A Taste of Home”
Reviewed September 27, 2013

I wish I had written this sooner as I had intended to because this place is worthy of a review. I moved here recently and was surprised to find out there was an actual Puerto Rican restaurant. I'm Puerto Rican myself and can attest that the food is what you'd find on the island. Very humble yet inviting atmosphere, owners are very friendly, and the cost is, in my opinion, underpriced. If you're ever in the mood for something different give this place a try! And as for Puerto Ricans in Kuwait this is a must if you're craving the taste of la isla. :) 5 stars
