This toilet-themed restaurant chain proves it isn't a flash in the pan. Owner Wang Tzi-wei opened the first Modern Toilet outlet in Taipei 2004; there are now branches all over Taiwan, as well as in Hong Kong and mainland China. The pictures in this gallery are from a branch which has recently opened in Shenzhen

...and eat big piles of chocolate ice cream out of toilet-shaped bowls

The restaurant chain's website says: "Our goal is to become The No. 1 Brand in Themed Chain Restaurants. In an age where creative marketing is king, even faeces can be turned into gold"
