George Dalmon and Andy Miles have been visiting Mongolian restaurant ‘Gobi’ in Middle Street at least twice a month for two years to take advantage of the £12 all-you-can-eat deal, according to reports.
But during their last visit, the manager of the Brighton restaurant barred them after they each ate five bowls of stir-fry food.
They were apparently called ‘disgusting’ and ‘filthy pigs’ before being told ‘never to come back again’, with the manager saying the two diners were ‘eating him out of business’ and that he’s ‘had it with’ the two customers.
Mr. Dalmon told the BBC: “Obviously we've paid the £12 for the buffet and it says you can have as much as you like, but apparently five bowls was over the top as far as he was concerned.”
The owner who barred them from the restaurant is thought to be currently unreachable on a holiday, but according to reports has admitted to calling the two diners ‘pigs’.
Meanwhile, co-owner Peter Westgate issued an explanation. He is quoted by the BBC saying: “Like when the shark shuts its eyes before it feeds, they're like that.”
“They muck the buffet up for everyone, they push and shuffle people from the barbecue area and it's pretty sad really, because you can eat all you like over five-and-a-half hours - it's not an issue, you don't need to rush.”
The restaurant is thought to have said they were fed up with Mr. Dalmon and Mr. Miles’ lack of manners.
