  • If you're coming to Kuwait, it's the must go attraction. If you're going there to shop, don't expect to find too many local products instead you will find a few Persian shops with some products that you won't find elsewhere. In the middle of the market there is a restaurant chain that makes food directly bought from the market, which will make the pricing vary every time you visit. In the outer rim there is a chain of restaurants that mainly sell Iranian grills in the outdoors, with a nearby kids playground and a ground fountain that kids love to play with. All in all Mubarakeya is worth visiting at least twice once for lunch and a second for dinner.
  • A lot can be done to make the mubarakiya experience even better, but it still is one of the best experiences you can have in Kuwait. The souk is huge and offers a variety of shops, cafes, and restaurants. Going there is a must for everyone visiting Kuwait for the first time.
  • It's a traditional place you feel like we go back to history
  • A beautiful place full of traditional ambiance
  • I love this place. It's reminding me with the old markets in our Arabic countries
