Alshaya is set to bring some of the world’s best loved food brands to the Arabian Gulf Street – one of Kuwait’s busiest and most popular seaside destinations.

First to open earlier this month was Kuwait’s best-loved coffee brand Starbucks in a stunning new location next to the upcoming Ahwet Zeitouna.  Also opening later this month are legendary steakhouse Texas Roadhouse, known for its premium steak cuts and 400 Gradi, home of the world’s best pizza and authentic Italian cuisine.

Enjoy an American-style dining experience from a new one-stop location; discover a common dining area featuring Blaze Pizza’s signature fast-fires customizable pizza, IHOP’s buttermilk pancakes, fluffy omelets and all-day American dining options, and Raising Cane’s quality chicken finger meals.  Designed for friends and families alike, this one-stop destination offers a friendly, warm and comfortable ambience, plus a fabulous view of the sea.  Even better, Raising Cane’s will also offer a drive-through service.

Making its Kuwait debut this November is popular Lebanese neighbourhood café brand Ahwet Zeitouna. Inspired by the warmth and bustle of Lebanon’s golden era, Ahwet Zeitouna will be the perfect all-day setting for gatherings; offering tapas-style homemade Lebanese mezze, saj, hot dishes, salads and desserts, at from a beautiful location.

Completing the ‘top ten’ are contemporary Indian brand Asha’s, which offers a unique dining experience and a stunning new interior design that will redefine modern Indian dining in Kuwait.   Neighbouring Dean & Deluca, the third in Kuwait, will provide an all new restaurant dining experience with beautiful contemporary interiors and, in early 2020, the first standalone restaurant for The Cheesecake Factory in Kuwait will offer an exciting new experience for diners.

“These new seaside destinations bring some our best-loved restaurant and cafe brands to more customers here in Kuwait and meets their demand for high-quality, innovative and international dining experiences. We look forward to welcoming our customers to our new restaurants,” said Matthew Holgate, President of Food, Alshaya Group.
