The World’s Craziest Restaurants! Toilets! Roller Coasters! Tokyo Ninjas!

Dinner Is Served!


We’ve been a lot of places together, you and I…but it’s time to grab a bite in some of the world’s most unique restaurants – afraid? You should be!

toilet restaurant

Yep, it’s a restaurant in Taiwan that is designed to look like a bathroom – and all food is served in toilets! You sit on one and eat out of one…how can this be wrong? Check out the video!

They are clearly in on the joke, as this is the front page of their website…go there to see this place in all its glory!

I love the idea of a restaurant that so brazenly embraces their crazy side…I can only imagine how great the food must taste when it shows up at your table looking like this:

Shanghai’s Toilet Restaurant!

And now you can add Shanghai China to the toilet restaurant list! It’s a place called “Modern Toilet”, and it is obsessed with the most extreme aspect of what a toilet restaurant can offer!

A terrific writer, Susannah Breslin, visited the restaurant and wrote up her observations, and all I can say is, “OH MY!”

Here is a sample from her blog:

“I took a seat at a table. My seat was a toilet. The table had a glass top. Under it, there was a bowl. In the bowl, there was a plastic swirly turd. The place mats were decorated with smiling turds.”

And if that’s not enough, time to celebrate the wackiest restaurants in the world – let’s begin in Tokyo!

Welcome To “The Lockup”!

Yep, if you want more than a meal – like, you know years of solitude – then spend a night at this place, where you literally get locked up in order to enjoy your meal!

The “Ninja” Restaurant!

I actually ate here once, when we were filming with two “Ninja Warrior” competitors…you enter through a darkened passageway full of surprises…

Tokyo Ninja restaurant

In order to get to your table, you must cross over rivers, avoid the trap doors, and most importantly, you must avoid one of these:


“Ninja Akasaka” is a fun restaurant with a wide array of food, and terrific sushi! And speaking of sushi, what if you could eat at a restaurant where you catch your own?

At this restaurant, you are seated on a boat and you catch your own fish in a stocked tank below. Yes, you are seated, and then you are put to work!

I love the imagination of the Japanese – in fact, there is a book that celebrates what Tokyo’s restaurants are doing!

Crazy, Wacky Theme Restaurants: Tokyo – by La Carmina

Think you’ve seen it all when it comes to restaurants? Do foie gras, lobster and truffles strike you as humdrum fancy foods served in predictable settings? Looking for totally unique and bizarre restaurants? Then Crazy, Wacky Theme Restaurants: Tokyo is the book for you!

But that’s not all, look at these unique restaurants! Let’s start with a roller coaster ride!


The Long and Winding Road!

Culinary Concept: Roller-coaster service. At this futuristic eatery in Hamburg Germany, the waitstaff is a thing of the past. Guests place their orders via a touch-screen computer at each table. When the food — which, according to the restaurant, is based primarily on local, organic ingredients and cooked with minimal fat — is ready, it zips to the table along a twisting track from the kitchen above.

Restaurant: Dinner in the Sky!

“Dinner in the Sky” brings new meaning to skyhigh dining. If you have $40,000 to spare, you and 21 of your closest friends can lavishly dangle 150 feet above any city – with a menu including beef and foie gras mille-feuille (savory layered puff pastry) and Dom Pérignon!

Latvian Hospital!

And what about this: don’t avoid the hospital, eat in it! That’s the concept in Latvia, where you can enjoy a “medical” experience!

Hospital-themed restaurant

The restaurant looks like a medicine cabinet and the food is served in flasks and operating-room dishes – yum!

Stop Your Wining!

And finally, time to get a buzz on by going back to your diapers…

baby bottle wine restaurant

The restaurant is “Le Refuge des Fondus”, located in Paris.

Here is the culinary concept: Bottle service!

This tourist attraction in the Montmartre neighborhood first began offering patrons wine in baby bottles as a way to avoid the French tax on wine served in proper glasses!

So there you go, hope this helped you work up an appetite!

  1. Reblogged this on johnrieber and commented:

    Thanks to Beetley Pete for reminding me of these great restaurants!

  2. I have seen the ‘dine in the sky’ before. I thought the roller coaster was a cool idea, but I don’t think I would enjoy the toilet themed one! There used to be a pub called The Copper near Tower Bridge, where you could sit in the old cells of a jail, and enjoy your drinks. It has become a restaurant now, and very different inside.
    Best wishes, Pete.

  3. OK, that toilet thing is WAY WORSE than the ramen burger!!! LOL
