An an all-you-can-eat buffet in Chengdu, China closed its doors after just two weeks because customers ate too much and also cheated, causing the owners to go over $100,000 in debt.
From Matador Network:
Hoping to attract a loyal following, the restaurant allowed diners to buy a $25 all-you-can-eat card giving them unlimited access to the buffet for an entire month.
