Octopus Garden Chandelier

A popular Asian seafood restaurant in Jeddah sports an enormous lobster attached to the front of the building, bridges and waterways filled with fish inside, and interesting basketweave lighting. This chandelier consists of an octopus from which several other sea creatures hang, providing lighting. The food is great too, and diners are ushered in to individual dining rooms for privacy.

    That is certainly a different chandelier. The whole restaurant sounds memorable. Do the individual dining rooms help maintain the rule of segregating the sexes except for close family?

    • Yes, Louise, it is for the privacy of the families dining. Most restaurants have a family section and a section just for single males who are unaccompanied by any female members of their family. The family sections often have private dining rooms for each party or screens or curtains to give the diners ultimate privacy from having the women seen by anyone else, except the waiters who aren’t really considered as “real men” to them.
