Astra Lounge - Shaab, Kuwait

Trendy Idea, Poor Execution


Restaurant Category : Italian, Lounge, Mediterranean

Astra Lounge - Kuwait: After a second visit to Astra Lounge in Shaab, I confirmed my first impressions. The best thing about Astra is simply the atmosphere, nothing more.

The outdoor seating is not your typical restaurant seating but much more of a lounge, hence, the name I suppose. There is not much of a view, unless you call watching others a view, that is, when there are others to watch. The trendy lounge music enhances the atmosphere but really does nothing to improve the food or the service.

The food is average at best, definitely not worth the high prices and the service is fair; both times, it was slow and inconsistent. Maybe this is what they think trendy means.

To keep in step with the chic and trendy theme, they have a minimum charge which is part of the reason it is not consistently busy. It would be a great place to go for coffee or desert but with the minimum charge, it forces you to buy more than you really want or need.

I would be more apt to go there more often if there wasn't a minimum charge and would probably stay longer if it was busier. I think by changing this one thing, they could turn Astra Lounge from average to Bombastic. Astra Lounge is a good idea; it is just not executed very well.
