11 Of The Maddest Restaurants In The World


While researching an alternative place to eat in Dubai for eclectic rock band 30 Seconds To Mars we came across 'dining in the dark' at the Fairmont. A unique experience where you're served food by waiters wearing night vision goggles and you eat your entire meal in pitch black. Hhmmm sounds a bit creepy right?

Any way... it got us thinking of the most mental places you can eat around the world. Here are the best we found (three from Dubai of course). You just simply can't make some of this up..

Barbie Restaurant - Taiwan

Apparently there's a massive market in Taiwan for restaurants which are totally Barbie themed. As you can imagine it's filled with Barbie references and all things pink.


Hajime Robot Restaurant

Robots serving you food and dancing about the restaurant, this is a place of the future we reckon.


McDonalds Batumi

They might serve some of the worst (or best depending on how you look at it) food in the world but you have to hand it to the designers of this McDonalds building and the local planners in Georgia. More Michelin star than Mc Chicken sandwich.


Rogo's Roller Coaster Restaurant - Yas Mall, Abu Dhabi

An unique dining experience in our very own Abu Dhabi, this places serves you your food on a roller coaster. For the inner child in all of us!

Monkey Waiters

Not sure if we condone monkeys at work but we can't help but love their little suits.

Japanese Toilet Restaurant

The theme of this place is the toilet....the walls, seats right down to the bowls you eat from are toilets. There are some strange people in the world.

Tree House Restaurant - New Zealand

This amazing natural restaurant in New Zealand allows you to enjoy some delicious food in a beautiful setting.


Dinner In The Sky

This incredibly unique concept travels all over the world. Not for people who have a fear of heights...this seems a little terrifying to us!


Cannibalistic Sushi

This is just plain odd. This sushi spot in Japan recreates human bodies out of sushi including organs made out of fish.


Dine With The Fishys - Ossiano Seafood Restaurant, Atlantis

Another great Dubai spot, Ossiano Seafood Restaurant offers one of the most stunning and unique dining experiences.


Heart Attack Grill - Las Vegas

Why they are proud of this name we're really not sure, what we do know is you'll come out of here with an extra belt-buckle loose. The also give food away free to anybody weighing over 350lbs. Shocking stuff.
