Porkers off the menu as chubby diners banned from naked restaurant

Podgy diners will be weighed and shown the door if they are found to be too tubby when Japan’s first naked restaurant opens next month. Anyone who is more than 15kg (33lb) above the ideal weight for their height will not be allowed to enjoy the fare at The Amrita in Tokyo. As all payments have to be made up front, they will not be entitled to a refund if they are barred. Also banned will be anyone under-18 and the over-60s, as well as anyone with tattoos.

If you are more than 15 kilos (33 pounds) above the average weight for your height, we ask you refrain from making a reservation

Amrita restaurant rules

The Amrita – Sanskrit for immortality – will open on July 29. The list of rules asks visitors not to “cause a nuisance to other guests” by touching or talking to fellow diners. Those who meet the restaurant’s entry requirements will wear paper underwear provided by staff and be asked to lock away mobile phones and cameras in a table-top box. Guests will fork out up to 80,000 yen ($750) for dinner served by muscle-bound men wearing G-strings plus a dance show featuring male models. Without the dancing, a meal will cost up to 28,000 yen.
