Buniyadi guarantees a natural experience to diners in London



A new restaurant guaranteeing a natural dining experience to customers is all set to open in London on 11 June. Named ‘The Bunyadi’ (fundamental), the restaurant will function on an off-with-your-clothes basis.

Seb Lyall, the founder of Lollipop, the company behind the novel restaurant, said, “We want to enjoy and experience a night out sans any impurities: no chemicals, no artificial colours, no electricity and importantly, no clothes. The aim is to experience liberation.”

Diners will have to leave their mobile phones and other gadgets at the door and photography at the restaurant is, obviously, prohibited.

“Upon entering the restaurant,” reported the Independent, “guests may change into a gown, which they can wear or remove during the meal which is served in a private room. There is also a ‘clothes’ section for those who wish to remain dressed while dining.”

“We have worked very hard to design a space where everything patrons interact with is bare and naked. The use of natural bamboo partitions and candlelight has enabled us to make the restaurant discreet,” he said.

The pop-up style restaurant, which has a seating capacity of 42, in the east end of London, has a wait list of 44,200 people and will be open for three months.

The customer will be given an option to even take off his gown, which is provided on arrival, he said.
