I just came back from there, we were thinking of places to go for dinner but we were out of names. All 3 of us had our no-no restaurant, we contemplated: Maki, Chillis, The Noodle House, Don Mario’s, Oriental Cuisine, Ricardo, Fridays, Burger boutique, Sliders, Prime n Toast.. etc. But each and everyone of these was turned down by one of us. You’d think a dinner won’t be that complicated, but it is in our case.. always.

Just when we were thinking of bo6a6 o badiyan and falafil for dinner Kuwait Towers restaurant was mentioned. To make a long story short, after a little while we agreed to go there. The place in my opinion is amazing, the Kuwait Towers location and the view were just perfect. Everything else was crap. Pure Crap. Seriously.

It’s a buffet, an over priced buffet (coz the food sucked), with bad service, bad food, bad everything. I mean what a shame to have that magnificent location and view and to be placed at the top of a frickin landmark! and have it all go to waste with a well below average food?

Wouldn’t it be amazing to have a great restaurant up there? A 5 star place where people would reserve tables a month in advance to get a chance to taste an international chef’s dishes (daydreaming?). My friend was telling us while eating “If this was in Dubai we’d be hearing about world renowned chefs visiting the place every month and the place would probably be one of the IT places in town.”

A little piece of advice, DON’T think of going there, it was a big mistake that will never happen again. And if you ever had guests come to Kuwait, take them there in the afternoons, let them enjoy the panorama view, and then leave.

Made me regret not having a falafil for dinner. What a shame.

    I agree with you 1000%.

    Once I was hosting a friend from UAE and we went there. The food was soooo bad that I feel so a shame to invite him to that place.

    Yousef, I know its a shame! I said the same thing to my parents when they suggested to eat there. I was like: khalat elma6a3m?! They used to have good food and service before el’3zo as my mom would say. Bs sj 7araaaam this great scenery deserves a 5 star cuisine! :(

    That is very sad, I always knew it was bad but never bothered trying it! I don’t know why they just open up a bid for companies to take it for a higher rent and prepare the location for one of the good restaurants in Kuwait!

    The facilities needs a major overhaul and upgrade, and if they can’t manage a good restaurant then they should leave it to those who can!
