Chinese Restaurant That Weigh Customers So They Don’t Eat Too Much Apologies

A Chinese restaurant that came under fire for its controversial policy of weighing customers before they enter has apologised.

Chinese Restaurant That Weigh Customers So They Don't Eat Too Much Apologizes

The Chinese restaurant says it is “deeply sorry” for any upset caused after staff put the scales by the doors as diners arrived.

The fried beef outlet in the city of Changsha staff placed scales at the entrance for customers to weigh themselves before ordering.

They also installed a sign next to the scales telling customers how much they should order based on their weight.

The guide at the restaurant suggested that woman weighing under 90lbs should order no more than two dishes, while men weighing 70-80kg could have up to three.

President of the Chuiyan Fried Beef chain, Tan Yan, said that despite the controversy, over 1,000 groups of diners had gone along with the idea.

She said:

The activity was voluntary. Many female customers like to weigh themselves, and their body weight sent to their phones, not shown on the scales, so it did not breach their privacy

Tan said the restaurant’s campaign would continue, but the company would try to improve it
