Too many options, if you narrow down the cuisine for us it might be better

I'm guessing you're looking for local food, then try Freej Sweilah
It's kind of near Marina Mall, Salmiya

Give it a try
You won't regret it!

you can use talabat website to order which is easy to use, and all you need to know is your own address since ur new here.

best part it shows all locals food, other than foreign.

If you're looking for traditional and authentic Kuwaiti food there are a few restaurants that are worth checking out; Freej Swaileh, and Bait Dickson are both in Salmiya and are relatively close to each other, they're both great, authentic in flavor and i think they're priced roughly the same. For something a little less known and with a cozier feel with just as good food, try Shatae AlWatiya in Kuwait City, the restaurant is actually inside a small old Kuwaiti house just behind the Catholic Church. Suggested dishes; machboos laham (rice with lamb), machboos dajaj (rice with chicken), balaleet (sweetened vermicelli flavored with safron and cardamon served with an egg omelette) the last one sounds weird but you only live once so its your loss if you chicken out.

For traditional seafood try Shimam in Kuwait City.

Shimim in the middle of Souk Mubarakia (next to vegatable market) for grilled fish and kebabs
Sabaidee in Salmiya or Mahboula for Thai
Freej Swaileh in Salmiya for Kuwaiti food
Taste of Jamaica in Mangaf for Jamaican food
Al Habesha in Hawalli for Ethopian

Unfortunately, I don't believe Taste of Jamaica is open anymore...

I think Khaneen is a must try.

A mid-end Kuwaiti restaurant, probably the best tasting Kuwaiti restaurant.
