Basically, the restaurant is like a gigantic toilet where people eat instead of shit. Most of the seating is based on toilet bowl while they do have non-toilet bowl seat as well. If you fancy eating in the toilet, then this is the right place.

The baked rice – Toilet Bowl Chicken Baked Rice and Cheesed Baked Rice with Curry Chicken taste almost like those in Wong Kok and Kim Gary. Of course with the concept of having your food in a toilet bowl instead of the normal bowl makes it extra special.
