1. Huashan Teahouse (Huayin, China)
This restaurant takes the meaning out of working for your food. Located at the top of Mount Hua, visitors must tiptoe across wooden planks nailed to the side of the mountain and then climb one of the world’s steepest staircases protected by a little fence. If you make it to the restaurant… you eat for free.
2. Modern Toilet Restaurant (Taiwan)
They say don’t shit where you eat, but that’s not the case at Modern Toilet Restaurant. Enjoy your poop swirled chocolate ice cream or drink out of a plastic urinal while sitting on (you guessed it) a snazzy acrylic toilet.
3. Hobbit House (Manila, Philippines)
Inspired by Tolkien’s Lord of the Rings, a college professor by the name Jim Turner created a bar staffed by “little people”. It was so popular that they opened up another branch in Boracay.
4. Hello Kitty Dreams Restaurant (Beijing, China)
There’s no such thing as too much. Imagine, a pink restaurant filled with Hello Kitty chairs, mirrors, stuffed animals, balloons, pictures, and more. And if that isn’t enough, even the food you eat will be shaped like the adorable kitty.
5. Lainio Snow Village Ice Restaurant (Ylläsjärvi, Finland)
The Lainio Snow Village Ice Restaurant is made completely of ice and snow. It melts during spring and is built from the ground up every winter. There is no dress code, but I’d recommend something along the lines of a parka.
6. Alice in Wonderland Restaurant (Tokyo, Japan)
You don’t have to be half mad to dream this up. The Alice in Wonderland Restaurant is decorated with a big clock, bunny tails on chairs, a Mad Hatter Tea Party Room, a tiny entrance, and more.
7. Hajime Restaurant (Bangkok, Thailand)
These aren’t your regular boring robots. At Hajime Restaurant, four samurai shaped robots bring delicious Japanese cuisine to your table and then clean up after you leave. They even do a dance routine!
8. Ithaa Undersea Restaurant (Rangalifinolhu, Maldives)
The first undersea restaurant in the world, Ithaa is located 16 feet below sea level and seats 14 people at one time. The transparent roof offers a 270° panoramic view of various sea creatures.
9. Baggers Restaurant (Nuremberg, Germany)
Take a ride down the world’s first roller coaster restaurant where you order off a touch screen menu and the food is delivered to you through a steel track. The question is, who do you tip?
10. Dinner in the Sky (Brussels, Belgium )
The sky is obviously not the limit at this restaurant in Belgium. Here, a crane will lift you and your entire dining experience 150 feet up in the air.
