I would never have realised there was a restaurant in this huge furniture shop - it's hidden away, upstairs in a corner,,,,,

I've eaten here a few times. The atmosphere here is very homely - the restaurant is pretty unusual, insofar as the furnishings have price tags attached and are all very individual (I hope that makes sense....) - different kinds of tables and chairs depending on how you prefer to sit for your meal. It's always been quiet and very relaxing. There's also an outdoor seating area, if preferred on cooler days.

The menu is varied. Servings (by Kuwaiti standards!!!) aren't very generous but the food is tasty.

What I've noticed, much to my discomfort, is the fact that smoking is allowed. As an asthmatic, I've choked a few times.

An English tea garden minus the foliage! Excellent scones with clotted cream, great design your own pastas and salads and good a la carte choices. Reminiscent of eateries back home.

Visited with family. asked for a table by the window-which was given to a group who arrived after ask b'cos of 'miscommunication. We tried to order mango smoothies only to be told they have run out of ice cream. then they were out of ginger for another smoothie. bunch of jokers running the place.

I love this restaurant/Cafe! Its in a fantastic furniture store in the Marina Mall.

The food is really unusual compared with most fare in Kuwait, try the veg tart or any of the soups or salads. The menu changes for the seasons, but they keep some of the best stuff on all the time. And they even Cater for parties.

This place has the BEST friday brunch, have the benedicts or granola, or the french toast, you will not be disappointed.

Best part though, there is lovely outdoor and very clubby beautiful indoor seating and lots of westerners and some arabs that are a cut above the rest in terms of manners and behavior.
