That's fucked. Mongolian Barbecue is cheap meat and mostly veggies, and for £12, you should get five bowls if that's what it takes to fill you. Think about all the people who go in there and eat about £3 worth.

I bet they lost more profit by doing this than they kept, because it comes across as unfriendly, dickish, and miserly.

Then again, if the guys were being ricks about it (and they kind of look it), karma ftw.

It's good to know that the US hasn't got the monopoly on greedy fat fucks.

Why not? It doesn't say with an asterisk in small print * But still not more than allows us a healthy profit.

I'm not defending the restaurant for violating their own sale's pledge, I'm just pointing out a truism.

Most people don't likely take it as a serious challenge, though I think the "rules" imply you're going to eat more than you normally would, "to get your money's worth." Sometimes they seem to raise prices in anticipation of people eating more than normal, so that if you eat a "normal" quantity, you're paying too much.

Also, if you're going to advertise it, it would almost seem worth marketing when people "take up the challenge." Otherwise, the proprietor just seems like a jack wagon.
