After reading a recent post about the funniest bar names, I recently was in Paris, and ran into an establishment called "Gandhi Fried Chicken", and my friends and I could not help but break down laughing right out front for what seemed like thirty minutes!

So I have to ask, what are some funny restaurant names you have run into around the world?

I think I have seen that one somewhere before.

There's a really funny named Nepalese restauraunt in Edinburgh, can't remember the name nor do I have a picture.

I've seen 'Fuk Mi' in a guys magazine before, the caption was;

"Can you imagine what they say when they answer the phones there??"
