Seven child-friendly restaurants to try out this week
Blaze Burgers

Trying to find a restaurant that’s suitable for your children is always a difficult task, particularly if there are big age gaps.

Your little ones might only want to eat chips, but you don’t want the older kids to get bored with unadventurous food.

Luckily for you, we’ve rounded up some of the best family-friendly restaurants to try out this week.

Read on to find out more.

Blaze Burgers
It’s a truth universally acknowledged that kids can be incredibly picky. They’ll refuse to eat things that have even lightly touched a vegetable they don’t like, or push away any food they don’t like the look or smell of. But at Blaze Burgers, everything is completely customisable, so you’ll never have to worry about rogue pickles or tomatoes ever again. And if they don’t like any of the burgers (which is almost impossible), there’s always chips.
Open Sat-Wed 11am-1am; Thu-Fri 11am-2am. Road 3819, Adliya (1774 4773).

Cucina Italiana
It’s next to impossible to go wrong with Italian food when it comes to feeding children – it’s not spicy and you can make pizza and pasta dishes as plain as you want, or add a gazillion toppings, depending on your mood. Cucina Italiana prides itself on its fresh ingredients and flexibility when it comes to dietary requirements, so whether your kids are gluten-free or refuse to eat meat after finding out where it really comes from, head here for a fuss-free meal.
Open Sat-Wed noon-midnight; Thu-Fri noon-1am. Al Fateh Road, Juffair (1700 1317).

Emmawash Traditional Restaurant
If your little ones have a bit of a creative streak, Emmawash Traditional Restaurant is bound to keep them entertained. Instead of offering up a children’s menu with pictures to colour in, you’re allowed to draw all over the walls. But be warned – you might struggle to get them to sit down and eat their food. This spot serves up traditional Bahraini food, so the whole family can get a proper introduction to the culture, or you can pick something simple like scrambled eggs.
Open daily 6am-1pm. Road 6905, Abu Saiba (1730 9030).

The Cheesecake Factory
Youngsters will do anything if they think there’s dessert involved, so they’ll be thrilled as soon as you tell them you’re heading to the Cheesecake Factory – especially if they’ve never been before. Not only is there a massive selection of cheesecake, there are also kid-friendly main dishes like grilled cheese sandwiches, mac ‘n’ cheese and mini hot dogs.
Open 10am-11pm Sun-Wed, Thu 10am-1am, Fri-Sat 9am-midnight. The Avenues, Road 4660, Sea Front (1711 0602).

Sofitel Bahrain Zallaq Thalassa Sea & Spa
Brunches are a big deal in Bahrain, but you’re not exactly going to want to take a group of youngsters to a hectic party one where the priority is on the drinks rather than the food. Sofitel Bahrain Zallaq Thalassa Sea and Spa put on themed brunches at its different restaurants almost every Friday, and your little ones are guaranteed to like at least something from the huge buffet. On top of that, there’s a special kids’ corner so you can enjoy your food while they run about making friends.
BHD36 (adults, selected beverages), BHD18 (children). Every Fri 12.30pm-4pm. Zallaq Highway (3888 5789).

Sumo Sushi & Bento
This chain offers up children-friendly bento boxes featuring sushi for your adventurous youngsters, breaded chicken nuggets with katsu sauce for those who are starting to branch out, and peanut butter and jelly sandwiches for fussier kids. Each box comes with a sliced fruit cut into shapes and a scoop of ice cream too.
Open Sun-Wed 10am-1am; Thu-Sat 10am-2am. Road 41, Juffair (1771 8090).
