Less crowded than the newer malls, Souq Sharq is a great place to get your main shopping done. True they have lost some of the main brands but Shaya remains with some of its major brands. Food choices are mainly fast food with one or 2 options of a more casual experience. A good out door place with cinemas, it... More

The mall is fairly old and has an interesting 5.5 meter water clock probably the only one in the region. Surprisingly the car park is facing the sea and the cars get the best view. The mall has a shopping centre ( Sultan) and few minutes walk would take you to the fish market

we like the place which is in middle of the city and with nice selection of items along with nice sitting area in front of the beach. Recommended for family purchases and for evening visits

Decent mall with a good variety of shops and restaurants... stick with chains though.. or ground floor cafes, because the restaurants upstairs use scary cheap meat and chicken.. particularly the Chinese and Arabic ones... Sitting on the marina is quite lovely, and there is a supermarket, which is great.

What makes this mall unique is the location being overlooking the beach, lots of parking places, and it's amazing exterior that comes from the fine days of the past. It used to be the " it " mall in Kuwait in the past, end of 90s. now with the avenues and the other malls around Sharq Market is no longer... More
