Review: Think Cafe & Restaurant

For the past few months I’ve been studying for my MD, or some shit like that, and I’ve been struggling to find the most efficient location to get some work done. There are way too many distractions at home, and I get distracted way too easily in commercially developed coffee shops.

On March 20th, Think Café & Restaurant was officially opened and seemed to cater to my needs. Their description on facebook states that Think has a “professional yet cozy ambiance to hold ur business meetings, student group meetings and even ur chillin' out get-away hangouts.” Despite their desperate plea to attract customers in anyway possible, I was curious to checkout their “professional/cozy ambience.” To me, professional cozy ambiance sounded like the product of Kinko’s shagging East Village B Café – I was really eager to know whether Think is the perfect little place to finish up (or start off) my academic review.
What follows are some pictures and a brief review of Think Café & Restaurant

The pictures above portray Think Café & Restaurant just as similar as any other café here in Kuwait. Their menu was overburdened with carb-elicious desserts and fridge-d salads and sandwiches. There warm/cold beverages include Nutella hot chocolate, peach iced tea and a variety of energy cocktail mixes. In Think, however, there was delightful amount of sunlight coming into the café. It was almost like walking into a contemporary art museum.. without the nude sculptures of course. Though they do have several enlarged photographic art displayed throughout the café and is said that they will be switched out every few months. So if you do want to publicize your art, this might be a good affordable way to do so. The current artists are Zainab Dashti, Mothi AlShuwaihan, Mahdi Jaber Ali, Ali AlAttar, created a custom series dedicated to Think Café & Restaurant.

Bellow, you’ll begin to see that Think’s concept is definitely new to Kuwait. The café is well equipped with Wi-Fi, computer stations, and a printer station, above other things.

Here is one of the four computer stations. What is quite impressive about the work stations is that you get to have a little smart card that you insert into the computer in which you can save all of your personal settings and documents for the next time you log in. Pure genius!

The conference room displayed in the picture bellow these words is probably my favorite part about Think. Within the café itself, is a separate conference room available for anyone’s professional meetings or group studies. They charge K.D.15 an hour and it includes 8 beverages. The room is equipped with wires that enable users to connect their laptop to the flat screen TV for better projection.

Overall, I absolutely liked my experience at Think Café & Restaurant, however, next time I’m packing my own Little Mermaid lunchbox along with my books.

They’re located in Kuwait City, somewhere next to AlRaya.
Their Facebook group has more information including their contacts and address.
