Reviewed 21 February 2022 via mobile

It's a very well-known restaurant in Kuwait; this place has its own ups/downs throughout time; it depends on the management running it in different times of its history. Today, we had lunch with friends after a long time in this restaurant. I definitely felt some...improvement in the menu, style of cooking, quality of food. Only one major mistake when the grilled food came to the table it was barely warm. I notified the management, and they fixed the problem. Good food presentation, taste, very good service, great location. Price mid to high.More

We visited the restaurant on August 6. As usual, clean, professional and tasty food. The newly introduced item in the menu, Chicken Shawarma is not even worth one third of its price. Exorbitant charge on drinking water bottles. Almost 1 kd on each bottle.

I never tried a dine-in on this restaurant but in our company we used to order from here twice and once I ordered for myself. I never really like their food. Even the salad don't have a nice taste at all. This restaurant is so...popular so I was kind of disappointed when I tried their food. The staff though are super nice to send me better new food.More
