Diners in Xiangfan are enjoying the novelty of eating their meals in ankle-deep water, reports Xinhua Net.
News of the flooded restaurant spread and the restaurant is now packed with diners while waitresses say they are struggling to keep up with orders.
The owner said he was prepared to temporarily close the restaurant after the heaviest rains for 50 years brought floods to the city.
But he had a change of heart when he heard how the eatery's new wet look was bringing in the customers.
"It's very cool. Not only in temperature, but also for a fun new way of having a meal," said one diner.
