As other entries on this list prove, Chinese food has spread to nearly every quarter of the world. Due to a complex Chinese dictionary, inadequate English literacy, and poorly translated Chinese-to-English sentences, English-speaking guests may be left with unstoppable laughing fits when trying to make sense of Chinese restaurant signs.
This Chinese eatery has made it very clear that their ‘all you can eat buffet’ does not mean that it’s an ‘all day buffet.’ For lack of using better wording, they’ve finished off their sign with ‘YOU EAT – YOU GO HOME.’ We hope that this sign made you laugh as much as it made us laugh!
Only in India
Perhaps a restaurant sign like this one will do fine in some parts of the world, like where it was spotted in Mumbai, India. But to anyone in the Western world, it may just be a cause for some laughs at the ludicrousness of some of these restaurant rules.
It's giving military vibes, like, are we not allowed to read a newspaper or let alone talk to the cashier? Aren't restaurants supposed to be a place where you can relax and enjoy a few moments of food and freedom? Guess not every restaurant in the world got the memo about that!
Drink Beer for Your Safety
As the saying goes, "Fat kids are harder to kidnap," the same rings true with "The more you weigh, the harder you are to kidnap." That's the message that this brewery sign in the Phillippines is giving. Every restaurant or bar will have its own ways of luring in customers, and this brewery decided to keep things honest and open.
There is, of course, a lot of truth in this sign, as drinking more beer will indeed make you heavier and, therefore, harder to kidnap. Just make sure you don't drink too much to the point of becoming totally passed out. Because then it'll be easy to kidnap you regardless of your weight.
Cuppa Coffee to Start the Day
This sign seems to have missed a key element in the way that someone's face looks before they have had their first coffee versus after that first coffee of the day. So many people rave about how they can't happily start their day before that first cup of coffee.
Given that so many people rely on this beverage to start their day, isn't the second face with the cuppa coffee supposed to be a smiley one? Apparently, not for this cafe, but perhaps the people who'll stop and give the sign a second look may actually be lured in for their first coffee of the day, thanks to the confusion created by this cafe's sign.
We Didn't Need to Know
We're not so sure about you, but when we think of the dining experience, we picture fresh food that's been prepared on the same day and hopefully not straight out of the freezer. Of course, there's no way to enjoy certain out-of-season foods without the use of a freezer, so naturally, sometimes, an eatery is going to prepare frozen foods.
But do we want to know that the food is straight from the freezer? Hard no. Do we need to learn via the restaurant sign that the food is being prepared straight from the freezer? Also, a hard no! Perhaps this eatery needs to rethink the wording for this sign.
