Delicious, friendly and incredibly reasonable. The meal I had here was the best that I had in Kuwait -- a fresh arabic salad paired with a perfectly cooked fish in a masala-like sauce. The specialty here is fish. If you ask for "spicy fish," you should be able to get what I had. Prices are incredibly reasonable and the people watching here in the evening is spectacular. If you are discrete, it is easy to get good shots of people shopping in the market.

The sign isn't in English so you may need to ask around. Located in the center of the vegetable market. A few staff speak English. They are incredibly friendly.
