Naranj Kuwait (Breakfast, Buffets, Middle Eastern and Turkish).
The word Naranj is derived from Sanskrit nāraṅgaḥ “orange tree”. The Sanskrit word is in turn borrowed from the Dravidian root for 'fragrant'. In Tamil, a bitter orange is known as 'Narandam', a sweet orange is called 'nagarugam' and 'naari' means fragrance. In Telugu the orange is called 'naringa'. The Sanskrit word was borrowed into European languages through Persian نارنگ nārang, Armenian nārinj, and more specifically from the Arabic langauge نارنج nāranj.
Culturally in Syria, many of the old households were known to grow Naranj trees in their houses due to its beautiful flowers that produce beautiful fragrance. In addition to creating Naranj marmalades and dried confectionary fruits to be savored by family members and guests.
The Naranj is a typical Sham or Levant area fruit. This word was adopted as a brand name due to the fact that it is a unique fruit “bitter orange” and is known as a tasty and nutritious fruit. It was typically known to be a widely demanded fruit by travellers and traders that passed through the gates of Damascus.
Hence, we used this simple name to express our unique food taste and the fact that we are a Syrian restaurant that strives to offer simple, yet delectable and authentic Syrian and Shammy dishes.
