Rib Room


I am a very picky person when it comes to my steak, I have had some amazing steaks over the years and so I know quality meat when I taste it. There are so many different kinds and so many ways to eat it. I think Middle Easterners and Arabs don’t know how to enjoy a steak they have this strange fear of seeing red, a little red doesn’t mean blood but they most people don’t listen and ask for it well done so it becomes like a piece of rubber and they won’t really know what they are missing.


When I try a new place and it seems relatively good I tend to go with Medium Rare with any of my meats, I go with a few different cuts depending on what I feel like. Its usually between the Rib Eye and Porter House since those are the juiciest cuts. I have tried the Rib Room a few times at this point and I have to say they are very consistent with the quality of food they have. Out of all the meat places I have tried in the Middle East this is probably the best Steak place available, I have tried much better in Northern California but they are extremely good compared to what is available so you can enjoy your steak. The one main point is not to have an sauces on the meat or else you will miss out on the taste of the meat. My rules are simple when it comes to eating steak I only drink water and no sauces on the meat so that I can really enjoy a great piece of steak.


The Rib Room has a very nice selection of meat and side dishes to go with it. It is located in the Emirates Towers Hotel and it is worth visiting if you like steaks.

  1. damn I thought this was in Kuwait!

  2. bil 3afya.. it’s not about ‘red’/’blood’ to me.. i love a good crispy well done steak.. many people have told me the same, that 7aram i go for well done and should try medium well… i tried medium well before but it just doesnt cut it for me.. burn the darned thing and bring it to me! yum!!

  3. As someone who lived in the states – specifically NY and DC – and is used to steak houses/restaurants such as Mortons, Sam and Harrys, Smith and Wollenskys and Shulas – among others – I know Kuwait does not have any decent steak houses – pls dont tell me the Steak joint in Marriot or The Palms compare, they do not.

    Nevertheless, The Rib Room and Meat Factory in Dubai – among other excellent steak houses are indeed giving many of their US counterparts a run for their money.

    Kuwait has hundreds of restaurants and fast food joints, but it is very hard getting a truly decent gourmet meal in this country.

  4. rib room.. check for my next visit :)

  5. steak with mushroom sauce, yum yum. gaucho grill is good, did u try their steaks?

  6. *shudders* blood yekh,, yeah i’m ur typical middle easterner when it comes to steak!

    Speaking of steaks, have you tried terrace grill, the steak house in JW marriott diera,
    Dubai? It has the same name of that in kuwait, but with a MUCH better taste. I think it is
    the best stake house I have tried in the middle east so far. But will try rib room soon nshala

    seems like a nice place,

    I think gaucio grill is the best place for steaks in Kuwait

  9. i don’t know why my friends shout at me when i order my steak medium

    i might go try it next week

    the new york steak from Friday’s is better than gaucho grill,, it’s not bad but not fancy!!!

    i stayed in emarates towers for 15 days once last yr and never tryed the place…and its just on the corner from the lobby!! WHY? i call it (ignorance)

  11. I love steak, I always order it Medium so a tiny bit of Pink is around. I used to order it Well Done as I was scared of blood, but with Medium it leaves it soft and tender.

    I love getting peppercorn sauce on the side for extra taste :D

  12. i actually ate their once and their food is incredible…. unfortunately we dont have one as good in kuwait… as u said, arabs dont know how to enjoy a good steak

  13. Mark: Hell No! hahaha!

    MSB: eeekhhhh! Hell No!

    K: Hate me More!

    Amer: I still don’t think that the Dubai Steak Houses come close to the highend steak houses in the US. They got a ways to go. And in Kuwait the restaurant market caters to the public, that is the problem!

    Ms.D: yup!

    EniGma: Nooooo! Damn It!

    Hasan.B: The ones in Kuwait just don’t match up. Rib Room is by far better!

    lancer: Its horrible!! I tried it!

    vampire: They have no taste! Forget all those places! Try the RibRoom!

    abdvllah: Yup!

    pink: Damn, next time you should!

    ananyah: Forget any sauce!!! Just the meat is good!

    Fonzy: yup!

    Jacqui: Then you would enjoy this if you had the chance!

    Being a fan of stakes, I have rated “The Meat Co.” based in Medinet Jumaira, the best stake in the middle east, period! A South African chain, who would know more about stakes than them?!?!?

  15. zizo77: I just had the steak at the meat company and I have to say that the Rib Room is a lot better, higher grade meat and better cooked.

    guys you have to try the Gaucho Grill,best place in kuwait, see how they show you the steaks and explain each cut of steak and you see the chef cooking your steak from their open kitchen.
    And no need to tell you about the atmosphere you’ll forget that your in kuwait :)

  18. little me: I don’t think they even compare, I am one person that is very disappointed with Gaucho Grill, I think the better one in Kuwait is Terrace Grill.
