    Toilet-themed restaurant in China flushed with success

    Beijing Diners in China are overcoming their reservations by flocking to a new toilet-themed restaurant where business is booming.

    Customers at the Modern Toilet restaurant, in Kunming, Yunnan province, eat on seats converted from toilets.

    Urinals hang on the walls as decorations and signature dishes include 'excrement ice cream', 'toilet bowl hot pot' and 'fried poo sticks'.

    Owner Xu Liang says the restaurant has proved more popular than expected with students, in particular, keen to try the experience.

    "We had a survey before opening, and 20 per cent of people wanted to try it, 60 per cent weren't sure, while only 20 per cent found the idea unacceptable," he said.

    "Sometimes unusual combinations can work. A toilet and a restaurant are complete opposites but combined together they make for a unique experience."

    Regular customer Yang Siwen, a university student, has eaten at the restaurant three times since it opened two weeks ago.

    "I originally went in because I thought it was a toilet but then discovered it was a restaurant and decided to give it a try," she said.

    Next time when you go to China be careful to choose the correct retaurant and toilet otherwise you might be caught unawares like going for Toilet and actually finding the restaurant and vice-versa. :D

    Unless one is perennially constipated, why should a toilet prove a delight on which one has to sit to eat?

    I have not understood the psychology that makes one ecstatic to eat and pretend to defecate simultaneously.
