It is not nearly as large as The Avenues but has a branch of almost every known chain of stores in Kuwait and also some independent stores not to be found anywhere else. The well-known outlets at the Mall are Hugo Boss, Givenchy, Massimo Dutti, Diesel, Zara, H&M, Debenham's, Mango, Oasis, Next, River Island, Racing Green, Arbash Diamonds, El Taher, Milano, Steps, Zara, Body Shop, Boots, Hassan Optics, Charles Jourdan, Fantasy, Sony, GNC, Mothercare, Kenneth Cole, IKKS, Monsoon, Adams, International optics and much more. Any true shopper would be delighted to be stranded in Sharq forever - with a credit card, of course. Debenhams and Sultan Center are the anchor stores located at either ends of the mall.
Sharq Mall also has the largest food courts of any mall in Kuwait, great if you are visiting with friends, especially if the gang cannot decide on one particular restaurant. It is a Kuwaiti style food court, which is a large open patio (open concept, but still in the air conditioning) where you can find Paul, Le Nôtre and other faux-French cafés. Bredz and Marina Café are the two good restaurants. It also has the usual food court stuff such as the Pizza Hut, McDonalds, Marina Thai, Hardees, Baskin Robbins and TGIF.
There is also a movie theatre and amusement arcade for the little ones.
