Great to walk through the area and see what the commotion is about ( late afternoon...very busy with sales.) Friendly locals who told me that they sell the best fish in all of Kuwait.....no hassle and... More

Not missing any market as such on my trips, I have seen a lot of different fish markets around the world, and this one is impressively clean and organized. Though the selection is not that impressive, there are definitely seasonal surprises. A hidden falafel place is the most interesting of all. In the fish market building by the East Entrance... More

A large , crowded and clean fish market with fish and shells from the far world and from the nearby arabian gulf ( please don't call it Persian gulf , this is not politically correct ) . There are times with more people... More

If you like fresh local fish and gulf prawns this is the place to go. The vendors are friendly though not all speak English by any means. Prices as with most markets depend on the seasonal catches. When the Prawn season is in full swing these are an excellent buy. You can pay a bit extra to have the prawns... More
