Modern Toilet – Taipei


Why would anyone make a toilet themed restaurant? More to the point, why did I go to such a place? Curiosity, curiosity got the better of me. At Modern Toilet you are seated on a toilet, the table is a bath with a piece of glass on top, food is served in mini urinal looking plates, bowls look like toilets and many other bathroom inspired items. The idea must have caught on in Taiwan as Modern Toilet has many different branches all over the country.

The food was OK, nothing special, average pasta served with some soup with ice cream for dessert. Despite the average food, I had an enjoyable meal here because the whole place had a very fun vibe. Looking around you could see people laughing as there food was presented to them and I found myself doing the same.

Certainly an interesting place , check it out…

    Oh dear! I’m not sure being served a Mister Whippy style ice-cream in a toilet bowl looks like a tasty treat I’d like to indulge in. LOL.

    lol i love the opening line of ‘why would anyone want to go to a toilet-themed restaurant’ and then proceed to visit one yourself. because hey, everyone loves a little crazy. i’m just disappointed there wasn’t a toilet roll dispenser on the side of the table for your serviette needs. lol

      LOL how could anyone say no to a toilet themed restaurant… A toilet paper dispenser would be a good addition to this place.
