A restaurant in the southern Chinese town of Shenzhen, where seats are similar to toilets and plates are designed as commode, is gaining popularity. Known for its slogan ‘dinning on a toilet’, the restaurant is decorated to resemble big lavatories, with two big toilets at the front entrance.
Customers sit on toilet like seats which are covered with colourful glass. Glass-top dinning tables are shaped like squat toilets. Lin, the boss of the four-restaurant chain, got the inspiration to set up a “toilet-themed” restaurant after visiting an exhibition in Paris on toilets.
“No. 1 toilet ice”, the most popular dish is made of ice balls, rice dotted with coconut and served in a small toilet-like platter. The dish looks like something one would flush down a toilet, Xinhua news agency reported.
The manager of one of the four restaurants was quoted as saying that the restaurant was quite popular with young people and business is very good.
