In the ongoing battle against food waste, this tactic is certain to divide opinion. It certainly gives a new meaning to 'fine dining.'
According to German Pulse, several all–you–can–eat Asian buffet restaurants in Germany have begun hitting diners with fines for leftover food in a bid to prevent them from piling their plates too high with food they won't be able to eat.

The leftover food fines themselves are only one or two euros, so how likely they are to disuade diners from piling up their food is questionable, but Guoyu Luan, Yuoki's owner, is unrepentant, saying the service is called "all-you-can-eat”, not “all-you-can-give-away”.
