Check out this Birmingham restaurant’s innovative way to say safe

Ming Moon, Birmingham’s most popular Asian buffet restaurant, is returning from lockdown with a brand new system to protect the health of customers and staff.

The unique contactless buffet allows hungry diners to enjoy the restaurant’s fabulous array of pan-Asian cuisine without leaving their tables. It means no queuing and that social distancing can be maintained. The system couldn’t be easier to use:

  • Customers are seated at their tables.
  • They download the restaurant’s special contactless buffet app.
  • Then they go to the menu page and choose five dishes at a time that will be brought to tables by our staff.
  • If they’re still hungry, they can order more which, again, will be brought to their tables. They can also order their favourite teppanyaki from the live station
  • Drinks are also ordered via the app.

Of course, the restaurant is also adopting a raft of other measures to ensure the safety of diners and staff. Ming Moon’s owner Dorian Chan explained:

We’re thrilled to be welcoming back customers, but we were determined to take every sensible precaution to ensure their safety. Our unique contactless buffet is a fantastic way to help to maintain social distancing and to ensure diners have an enjoyable, stress-free meal.

Ming Moon’s famous buffet table will remain the focal point of the restaurant, with a full range of mouthwatering dishes ready for customers.The live cooking stations will also be operating, serving cooked-to-order specialities.

But people will remain seated and the dishes they select will be brought to them by waiting staff. “It maintains all the choice and excitement of our famous buffet selection, but with no queuing.”said Dorian.

The smart, modern restaurant offers a range of Asian cuisine including Cantonese, North Chinese, Sichuan, Thai, Japanese and Indian. The live cooking stations offer teppanyaki, dim sum, sushi, BBQ and noodles.

The restaurant is due to reopen on August 1.Ming Moon is participating in the Government’s Eat Out To Help Out scheme, which means the restaurant is able to offer even better value than usual.Under the scheme, customers can enjoy 50% off their food and soft drinks to a maximum value of £10 per person Mondays through to Wednesdays.
