WATCH: “Greedy” Chinese Tourists Use Plates to Scoop Prawn at a Thai Buffet

A popular seafood consumed worldwide, shrimp or prawn seem to be a favorite food ordered in restaurants. In fact, it is one of the foods that easily gets consumed in an “eat-all-you-can” restaurant.

Several Chinese tourists, who obviously love shrimps, were caught using their plates to hoard prawns at a buffet restaurant in Chiang Mai, Thailand. A video of the incident was posted online and quickly earned the ire of netizens.



One of the female tourists was caught stuffing four plates with the seafood as others clamber on each other to hoard the shrimp. Unfortunately, the group of seemingly hungry but greedy diners took more than they could chew as piles of plates of shrimps were left untouched. Photos of the wasted food were shared on the Twitter account of People’s Daily China.

While some commenters claimed that such strange behavior is commonly observed in a buffet restaurant in China, others insisted that not all Chinese behave in such manner.

“It is so humiliating! Not all Chinese people act this way. I have to say that most of the mainland Chinese no longer behave like this,” one commenter wrote.

Shanghaiist reports that the shocking behavior of the tourists in the video was caused by the expensive price of shrimp in China. Apparently, one customer was charged 2,700 yuan or a little over $ 400 for a plate of prawns in a restaurant in Qingdao in China.
