Vegetarian Restaurants in Kuwait

Sunday, January 22nd, 2012

The Middle East country of Kuwait lies on the northwestern edge of the Arabian Gulf.  It is geographically situated between the gulf, Iraq, and Saudi Arabia.  As there is no nightlife to speak of in Kuwait (alcohol is prohibited), most people go to their favorite restaurants for an enjoyable night out on the town. Though a predominantly Muslim state, traditional dishes have meats as one of the ingredient but for those looking for a vegetarian fare, the choices are unlimited.

If there is one thing you can say where tourism is concerned in Kuwait it’s the abundance of restaurants that you will find throughout the country.  This also includes restaurants that are Vegan-Friendly and geared towards the vegetarian community.  Here is a listing of the most recommended vegetarian restaurants in Kuwait along with the cities where you will find them:


Udipi – located inside of the Dabbus Building features mostly South Indian vegetarian cuisine although the menu also contains several North Indian dishes and local Kuwaiti cuisine as well.
