The restaurant with its marine ambiance has been a perennial favorite of both residents and visitors. Dinner is served in the hull of this hand-built boat, which is in the dry dock next to the Radisson Blu Hotel. Guests start their meal with a selection from the impressive salad bar. Next, a choice of top quality steaks and seafood or a combination of both is on offer. A savory platter with delicate sweets, fruits, and pastries provides the perfect finale. Coffee and dates are served upstairs in the comfortable diwaniya with its fascinating collection of maritime memorabilia. The sloping wooden floors and the staff in their old-style Kuwaiti sailors’ costumes add to the unique ambience. To eat at Al Boom is to experience an important part of local heritage.
