Kenny Rogers Kuwait- Abandoned

Curiosity always gets the best of me and for years I've wondered what it looked like inside the restaurant. I had some help in getting a sneak peak inside and I was not disappointed. I expected it to be ruined like Hard Rock Cafe was but it looked like it closed at the end of the shift and that was it. It looks like there was a train that ran around the place at one time.

I ate at KRR in California a long time ago and remember the food was pretty good with roasted chicken and plenty of sides. According to their Wiki page the company was bought by Malaysia-based Berjaya Group in 1996, filed for bankruptcy in 1998 and was bought by  Nathan's Famous, Inc. for U.S.$1.25 million and it's still open in Malaysia. 
I love the this theme

Old Pepsi design, who remembers this?

With a little work this could actually be reopened into a pretty nice place. I would hope they could restore the old Kuwaiti house it's built into as well as there aren't many surviving properties left.
