The interior design reflects the traditional Kuwaiti ‘Sandoog’ while incorporating a modern atmosphere. Dar Hamad is comprised of five sections: the Restaurant, Outdoor Terrace, Chai lobby, Banqueting, & Sandoog Boutique. Each section represents a distinctive aspect of the Kuwaiti culture through preparation of only the finest recipes. The Food Experience What makes Dar Hamad complete is its creative implementation of the Kuwaiti cuisine. The cookery was carefully shaped to include influences from The Arabian Peninsula, Persia, India, and the Mediterranean to embrace the entirety of a modern Kuwaiti taste palate. Kuwait’s distinctive hospitality is also represented in the food with rich portion being a central guideline in food presentation.

Dar Hamad serves Kuwaiti food with a twist. The food is great. I have tried it for breakfast today, usually we go for lunch or dinner. We had shakshouka and dar hamad tray. Very tasty. For lunch or dinner try the doloma it is to die for it bursts with amazing flavors. Also the okra dish is yummy too... momawash is an authentic dish here in kuwait also worth the try
