Some funny restaurant signs…


Buffet Restaurants

Buffet style restaurants seem to be opening everywhere at the moment. They attract 1000’s upon 1000’s of customers every single week and can’t be ignored. In the Middle and Far East buffets are very popular and the quality is very high with most 4/5 star hotels serving them. But still a lot of people think they serve terrible food full of MSG. What do you think? They are an essentially part of the UK restaurant scene.

With so many chef jobs available for Indian chefs and a key part of the UK restaurant scene – should immigration rules be relaxed for chefs? We’d love to hear to your views!
