we visited at the end of the afternoon, but there was still a lot of action going on. Fish was prepared and sold. Taking pictures was no problem at all. Also the spice market was very nice.

A nice place to visit if you are visiting Kuwait and a main destination if you love seafood, you can get very good deals to buy it fresh by going there in certain time and days

There's the usual selection of fish at wholesale prices. Although there's a wide variety, there are no places to cook what you bought. Still, it's bustling and worth a walk thru if you are looking for fresh seafood.

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...More
