Is this Christchurch’s own Basil Fawlty?

I wandered past one day so I walked up the steps to see if I could see a menu.... I seem to remember he yelled at me that the menu was on the music stand - I hadn't spotted it as I walked up.

Oh I am so amused by cantankerous owners...we must try this place. I gather the food itself is pretty good?

I seriously thought this was just me. The man is so anti customers i am surprised he set up again after the earthquakes !!! When he was in New Regent street, my friend and I went in to order a coffee. Because we didn't have cash he ordered us out of the restaurant. He was very odd at the time and i suspect he has only got worse.

To conclude with a personal observation, how could ANYONE compare with the inimitable Basil Fawlty? Regardless, this guy seems so unreal - if we lived in Christchurch, I simply couldn't resist going to see for myself.

That sounds crazy. It's almost worth a visit to see this first hand.
