10 Ridiculously Unique Dining Experiences You Should Try Before You Die

Take the opportunity to try out these ridiculously unique dining experiences at some of the world's most bizarre themed restaurants, at least once in your life time.


Toilet-themed restaurants are nothing new in China. Customers sit on "toilet seat chairs" and meals are served in ceramic toilet miniatures and bowls. Instead of serviette or napkins, customers wipe their hands and mouths using toilet paper. The restaurant is also decorated with various shaped urinals and toilet seats on the wall. Sounds fun!


Aurum is a newly opened hospital-themed restaurant in Clark Quay, Singapore. As you enter the Aurum, the restaurant's reception resembles a morgue. The lightings remind you of the ones in the operating theater. Customers sit on golden wheelchairs and the meals are served on the operating tables. The cutleries used for the meal include syringes.

Just next to Aurum, there is a bar called Clinic which lives up to its name. Customers are served by waitresses in nurse outfits and may enjoy alcoholic beverages sipped from mock drip packets.


In 2005, Dorothy Moore opened The Dining Dog Café in Edmonds, WA, USA, a pet-friendly restaurant for dogs and their owners. It is one of the few restaurants in the US which accommodates pets as well as their pet-loving owners. The menu includes Doggie Cocktails, Appetizers and Dessert Tray.

The Cabbage and Condom is a popular condom-themed restaurant in Thailand that promotes safe sex and family planning. The menu consists of mostly condom-themed dishes, for example "condom salad" and the after meal mint which is normally distributed after each meal is replaced with a packet of condoms. Many types of condoms with various colors and textures from all over the world are displayed on the wall of the restaurant and the collections make very interesting decorations.

Duvet, a restaurant in New York city features 30 customized, designer dining beds as the "seats" with tables, catered for extra comfort. Customers are also offered to wear customized bedroom slippers when they enter the restaurant. Duvet serves fusion American cuisine and a vast range of alcoholic beverages, suitable for private parties.
Rude Service

If you like to experience rude service, (maybe once a while), you can go to Dick's Last Resort in Chicago, USA. This is the place where you can not only enjoy a wide range of choices on the menu, but also have lots of fun from watching the waiters who will inflict rude jokes and humor upon the customers (including you).

The Jail is a prison-themed restaurant in Taiwan. The layout is just like any other prison with sliding iron bars and metallic aluminum floors with waitresses dressed as sexy wardens. Customers will be given the option to be handcuffed and taken to their own prison cell with a dining table and comfortable seats. This is where patrons can enjoy good food and soothing music.
Anger Release

If you are under stress and need an alternative punch bag, you can visit Rising Sun Anger Release Bar in Nanjing, China. This is a place where customers can release their anger caused by stress and problems in daily life. They are allowed to throw and smash the plates and glasses and even hit the waiters who have been given special training for the job.
Body Platter

Hadaka Sushi, a sushi restaurant in Los Angeles, USA, introduces the sensual concept of "Nyotaimori" which basically means a female body as the food platter. Usually the woman chosen for the task is a beautiful model who will then lay down as still as possible on a serving table. Most parts of her body will be covered with banana leaves where clusters of sushi will be placed on them.


For those who would like to experience dining in total darkness, you can visit Nocti Vagus Dark Restaurant in Berlin, Germany. The well-trained waiters who will serve you are blind. Customers will be entertained with special cultural programs which are presented as well in total darkness.
