foxnews.com – A Nepalese restaurant in the UK has left a bad taste in one family’s mouth after handing out a card informing parents to keep their children quiet while dining.
The restaurant, Nepalese Chef, in Gloucester has issued the laminated “polite notice” several times to families with small children, and claims no one else has been upset.
“We decided to hand it to anyone that turns up with young children to remind them that they have to be seated and children should not run in the restaurant due to hot food,” the restaurant owner Kashi Sharma said to SWNS, adding that most people were “absolutely fine with it.”
The notice was created after the restaurant experienced some issues with small children running around. It reads: “We request any customers dining-in with young children to keep noise at a reasonable level and to not let children run around the restaurant. It is dangerous as our staff are often walking around with hot food. Additionally, it is inconsiderate to the other diners.”
However, Sandeep Amin, who was visiting the restaurant to celebrate his birthday with his wife and seven-year-old daughter, was “shocked” and “horrified” by the notice.
I…I don’t think this restaurant is being unreasonable with this notice. Would you rather have your bad ass kid running around and end up with scolding hot food on top of their dome piece? As a former bad as kid I’m just saying the owners were just trying to avoid a lawsuit or worse and for them to even make this note means it was a problem in the past. So stop being offended by a note they hand to everyone that had kids and just eat the food and watch your snot nosed lil one sucka!
