This is the original Fish Market restaurant, before the big fancy one of Americana opened up near Kuwait Towers. I’ve been going to this place for years, ever since it only had 6 tables. The food there is amazing, everything is cooked to perfection.
You know the fish and other sea food is fresh, because you get to pick it fresh from the piles right in front of you. You choose the fish, shrimp, scampi, crab you want; and tell them how you want it cooked. You can also order off the menu; like pasta dishes, salads, oriental, rice, and other side dishes.
This time we got lucky, and found fresh Scampi. These are not easy to find in Kuwait, let alone fresh like this. We had a grilled She3em, a fried Zbaidi, Lobster & Scampi with mushroom cheese sauce, salad, fries, and fried rice. Our bill was approx. KD40 for 2 people, which is a little expensive. But it’s pretty reasonable when you eat fresh fish like this.
Their phone number is 2575-5522. This Fish Market is located in Salmiya, at the entrance of Salem Al-Mubarak St. If you’re coming from the 4th Ring Road, then it’ll be right in front of you, just past the traffic light, on the right side beside the parking lot. Here’s a map to show you where it is exactly.
