Review: Mughal Mahal Salmiya

In: Food, Reviews

It’s been a while since we ate at Mughal Mahal. And I can’t recall ever eating at their Salmiya branch. I guess the main reason would be that you can hardly see the sign board since there are 3 more prominent ones nearby and the entrance is at the back of the building! Anyway, we [...]

Review: Thai Chow King

In: Food, Reviews

Both Ro and I were in the mood for some Thai so we decided to drive down to Reggai to our favorite Thai food restaurant. Among all restaurants we have eaten at in Kuwait, this has the most homely feel. The staff are extremely sweet and warm to you and the fish in that big [...]

Q8NRI.com

In: Kuwait, Reviews

There is a relatively new website out there called Q8NRI.com [link]. Sonal the webmaster sent me a mail today introducing his site. Nice domain name and neat idea to have a dedicated forum for NRI’s in Kuwait. For those who don’t know, NRI stands for Non-Resident Indian. There are a couple of sites targetting Indians [...]

Review: Shanghai Express

In: Food, Reviews

So you’ve been lugging 20 bags around the mall like a porter for your wife and the stomach is now blocking out all commands from the busy shopper. As you reach the food court the most prominent signboards are the Lebanse tree and Santoor. My stomach drags me towards a more Indianish Santoor but hold [...]

Michelle highly recommended Barbeque Nation so we decided to go out on a double date with her and Shyam. Its a very neat “Live-Grill” concept. We reached the restaurant around 7.30pm and were taken to our reserved table. We ordered our drinks and in a few mins one of the waiters came over, took away [...]

Review: Al Bustan Radisson

So it was my birthday last week and my wife decided to treat me to a nice sea-food buffet. We went to Al Bustan at the Radisson in Salwa. It was a very pleasant dining experience. We were greeted by two very friendly staff at the entrace and shown our table. We started with some [...]

Review: Ruby Tuesday @ Avenues

In: Food, Reviews

It was around 9.30 at night and Ro just got off (pretty late) from work. Now she was exhausted from working late and so was I from being made to unnecessarily slog at the office the whole day so we decided to eat out. The nearest place I could think of was the Avenues.  So [...]

Review: Oriental Restaurant

In: Food, Kuwait, Reviews

  It was late and we were hungry so we decided to pick one of our favourite restaurants in Salmiya… Oriental. We eat there pretty often and its time I put a review up. There is usually a nice guy at the door with a big turban and an even bigger smile. They do have [...]

Review: Pizza Hut or Pasta Hut?

In: Food, Kuwait, Reviews

We were shopping at Salmiya center when we decided to have dinner out. It was a long time since I ate at Pizza Hut so we decided to go there. First thing that stood out was the big PASTA advertising all over the palace. Seems this new menu was introduced about a month and half [...]

Review: Zaika – Bollywood Theme

In: Food, Reviews

Took a wrong turn one day while returning home and we noticed Zaika. Its an Indian and Chinese restaurant. Decided to try it out. We went fairly early for dinner so the place was empty. First thing, they need to fix their front door! Other than that the decor was pretty nice. Its a total [...]
