Oriental Cuisine

Oriental Cuisine is the best Thai restaurant in Kuwait, situated in Sharg area close to Amiri Hospital. I was first introduced to the restaurant when the owner, also owner of Oriental Princess Salon, told us about it. At the Salon, they have menus of the restaurant. I grabbed one and tried their food nearly 2 years ago. I basically called them to place the order, drove to the place, picked up my food, and ate at home! I was shocked on how the place was FULL! Its really tiny!

Since then I have been there few times and dined there only once on a lunch break during work!

So I made plans yesterday with my little sister to go there after work, to have a good meal and take pictures for you guys to see… and maybe give it a try!

If you’re on Gulf Road, heading south, take the right turn at Burj Ahmed & Diwan AlMulla (Opposite Elysium). At the roundabout when you see this hotel, thats where Oriental Cuisine is





Thats how small it is from the inside


So I kick-started it with Thai iced tea…. hmmmmm GOOD!


Then we shared Hot & Sour Seafood Soup (Don’t ask me what’s in it!) – A very YUM Tom Yum!



And to have an idea of whats in it (hmmm mushroom, lemon grass, fish, squid, shrimps, mushrooms.. and more)


and hmmmmmm! The mix of spices and herbs makes it oh-so-good!


Chicken Satay



Dark Thai Chicken Noodles



Shrimp and Cashews



The shrimp dish contains yummy water chestnuts!


Sweet & Sour Chicken



I really wanted to try this Black Sesame Dessert but we were SO FULL we could not finish our dishes! Maybe next time ๐Ÿ˜‰

  23. i loveeeed this place.. not originally a thai food fan.. bt when i went here i fell in love wd the food.. specially their soup whch i forgt the name and a dish called morning glory.. it was sooo simple and sooo gud. is their menu available online at all by any chance? planing to go agian tomrow !

  24. the manager there the female thai lady has no respect for the people coming to the Restaurant.

  25. Hello Ansam, Thanks to you, we found out about this place. Just wanted to say their food is nice. However, I feel it is very difficult to reach them. They have no menu for take away order, no substitue number or email. Sometimes, it is very easy to reach them but sometimes there is no answer! Thanks for the post though.

  26. Sorry, got them – Please do not post the earlier post. Thanks but it would really help if they had a mobile number. Tks

  27. Ansam ive been there and loved it!!
    They have my favorite soup!! Tom Yum :))
    We have to go there together inshala babe

  28. They have also expanded so now on the right side is a much larger area that they turned into part two of the restaurant and they left the original small one as well….
    Seems its doing so well and always full so they had to expand it ๐Ÿ™‚

  29. I am trying to call Oriental Cusine since morning and I cannot reach you, please can you call me on 97269503 as I want to make a reservation for 10 people to come for dinner today at 9:00 pm for Thai food.
