Caesars Chinese Retaurant

I don’t know if this review will be very fair since the place I am reviewing I have been visiting for 26 years now. Yeah that long, and my parents were visiting it before I was born. The place is called Caesars Restaurant and its located in Salmiya. Its one of my favorite chinese places ever.. worldwide. In-fact every time I have chinese food anywhere I have to compare it to Caesars. Caesars just recently moved to a new location since their old place got demolished recently. The new location is adjacent to their old building so regular customers can find it easily. The new location is larger, is better decorated and now contains a lot more private booths. All the waiters are extremely friendly. I spend the first 5 minutes of my arrival saying hello to all of them. Its good to see them all. Some have been around since I was a little kid and have actually watched me grow up. I love the new private booths, they are very comfortable and they dont feel claustrophobic at all. For appetizers I ALWAYS have crab soup and prawn spring rolls. As I said previously, every time I have chinese anywhere else I have to compare it to Caesars and when it comes to the starters, Caesars wins by a mile. Their crab soup is simply the best soup I have ever had and I dont mean best chinese soup I mean best soup.. ever! The spring rolls? You can ask Nataly about them. When we go we usually order 2 plates of prawn spring rolls, one for her and one for me. Each plate has 6 pieces and they all disappear very quickly. For the main course I always have the sweet & sour chicken. Ofcourse I have tried their other dishes like the popular sizzlers and noodles, but I just can’t get enough of their sweet & sour dishes. Nataly keeps trying new stuff, yesterday night she had the sweet & sour prawns but before she had the fish sizzler and before that chicken with mushroom and bamboo shoots. One more thing left to talk about and that is the rice. Once again Caesars have the best rice in the world. We always order the fish fried rice and its easily the best rice you can ever have anywhere. Now with all this excellent food you would think the prices are just out of the world. In reality, Caesars is a very affordable chinese restaurant. This is what we had last night:

1 Large bottle of water
1 Coke
1 Crab soup
2 Prawn spring rolls
1 Fish fried rice
1 Sweet & Sour Prawns
1 Sweet & Sour Chicken

Total Price: KD10.500

As you can see the price for a very filling chinese dinner for 2 is just ten dinars. and this included shrimps. Very affordable. The only thing stopping me giving the place a full 5 stars is consistency. Every now and then something might not taste the way its supposed to. Maybe its me, maybe I am too picky but this is a minor issue I have. Also the location, its not really the place to be in Kuwait. So for the final score I give it a 4.5 out of 5. For reservations or to get the exact directions, you can call them at 5732885 and 5733044.

Update: Seems I couldn’t even spell Caesars right. I fixed it now.

  4. rampurple says:

    u would think that after you have visited the place for 26 years u would at least know how to spell it “Caeser’s” … and COME ON… you got to rate it a full 5! If you don’t rate caeser’s 5/5 …. then what would get a 5??? how can u not rate a plus a full 5, if you have been going there for 26 years!!!!

    Anyways…. excuse my comment, but i took this personally since it’s my number 1 place to eat at.

  5. Mark says:

    can’t beleive i spelt Caesars wrong.

    please do not question my score. If you compare it to peackok (how do u spell it?) Caesars has some disadvantages. these disadvantages cost it the perfect 5.

    i have never given a 5 to any place but one day i will and you will understand what seperates a 4.5 from 5.

    Peacock sucks

  7. Mark says:

    sorry but no one does mongolian prawns in kuwait the way peacock does. plus who else gives u cajun nuts to munch on while u wait. their soup and appetizers arent that good but they got some good main dishes.

    I know this place.. It used to be next door to my favorite restaurant (Winners Restaurant) and that restaurant is my version of Caesars hehehe since I’ve been eating there ever since I can remember hehehe but sometimes the food just doesn’t taste the same, hence I agree with you with the 4.5/5 rating :P

  9. Patrick says:

    I miss Caeser’s, all I got here is Chopsticks, which isn’t really bad, and it’s pretty affordable, but the Sweet and Sour Chicken isn’t as good as Caeser’s, BUT, the Lemon Chicken and Orange Chicken are really good. I’m pretty much drooling thinking of the food, so I’m going to shutup now.


  10. rampurple says:

    aaaaah pat! Now you got me craving for the lemon and the orange chicken from chopsticks! Chopsticks kindou is also good…

    sigh… i got to go to caesers for lunch tomorrow

    Does anyone know if Winners restaurant is still open? That was the best Indian/Chinese food in the world. I miss it! It was next to C’s.


  12. Mark says:

    yeah Winners is still open, i just never liked it.

    The Caesars in Fahaheel does the best food. I ate at the one next to jarir yeaterday and it tasted crap compared to the fahaheel branch, also the staff got annoying whereas i personally find at fahaheel, they know when to leave you alone. I must say though, i havnt tries the salmiya one yet… btw, just found this site, and living it kuwait, its really kool. Nice 1 m8

    I became a Caesars fanatic during the early 80s (used to frequent the one opposite the Sheraton – now closed) and used to enjoy their sizzling stuff and the hot and sour soup, spring rolls and so forth. I always remember them bringing these white loafs of bread with a large bottle of water and some cut green chillies. I always prefered the Chinese Chilis to the Indian one down the road anyway. In terms of nostalgia CAESARS represents a pre-invasion Kuwait, when it was the Dubai of the Gulf, a more innocent, less materialistic and corrupt time.

  15. Moey says:

    it’s 3 minutes walking from my place, and my building has china house.. ever tried it

  16. Sabah says:

    Cool, never saw your post on Caesars. I’ve been going there since as far back as I can remember; it definitely is the best Chinese food place.

  17. Edmaraldo Dsouza says:

    Dear Sir,
    We have come across a very ill-mannered person by the name of Jerry in the Fahaheel branch of Cearsers. He has no decency to talk to ladies. Inspite of he having commited the fault, yet he has been very arrogant and rude in his behaviour towards customers. Kindly look into the matter.

  18. Jay Port says:

    How do I find it? I live in Jabriya.

  19. rahul says:

    the diced chicken chilli, and the chinese roast chicken, and yeah they do have the most exquisite rice.
    like the top blogger, i can’t help but compare all chinese restaurants, even the ones in hong kong to caesars. very nice ones in hong kong btw, and in india.

    my fav. one (not considering decor) would have to be the one in town. jay, you’ll find that one in the vicinity of the sheraton and the city churches.

    Caesers brings back some memories its one of the first restaurants I visited as a child and I share your views on this restaurant ,it was the first time I had the sizzler it was amazing nothing I have had nsince then has been so tasty.
    I remember also in the old days there used to be a bakery by the same name where you used to get the best puffs and small pizzas,I remember during Christmas the plum cakes used to be out of this world ,thank you Mark and Nat for this blog it does bring back pleasent memories of old kuwait,the country we were born and loved so much

    Hey Mark… I’ve never been to Peacock.. do they serve Cashew nuts or Cajun nuts? Cajun nuts being different kinds of nuts with Cajun Spice?
