Chinese Restaurant Goes Viral For Their Extremely Honest Menu

How would you feel if the restaurant you were eating at gave surprisingly honest menu descriptions of their food, one where they call one of their own dishes, "not THAT good?" It's certainly not the norm, but for Aunt Dai, a Chinese restaurant in Montreal, Canada, that's exactly what they describe their orange chicken to be when compared to one of their other dishes.


Such honesty has proved to be refreshing for many, as the restaurant recently went viral for their highly candid menu, resulting in a dramatic spike in sales.

Twitter user, Kim Belair, tweeted, "Aunt Dai is my favourite Chinese restaurant in Montreal, but the REAL treat is the menu, featuring extremely honest commentary from the owner."


Owner Feigang Fei had more gems on his menu, commenting the following to describe the restaurant's satay sauce beef:

"This is new on our menu, I did NOT have chance to try this one yet. According to a lot of customers, this one is very popular, I still don't have chance to taste it. Looks like I should spend more time eating in my own restaurant."

Fei told TODAY, "The whole idea is just to let people know what they’re ordering. A lot of people found it very funny [and] very helpful. I was so encouraged by them." He continued, "We are not always the best food restaurant, but we try to do our best every day and to satisfy our customers and not oversell anything."
