 Morse Code, just to something that _looks_ like Morse Code.

I'm glad you said that cos when I was in the audience I couldn't match
up what I saw with what the program was (although I only got as far as 
character 3 so assumed there was some kind of preamble).  Mind you,
I only do 15-20wpm aural, barely 1wpm visual.

 Really? Mine says "Marvellously hostile staff", "rudest restaurant in
 the world", "madhouse", "the abuse gimmick". Golden Dragon all the
 way!

They are not rude - its a lie.  The correct term I think is apathetic.
However, don't expect eye contact while taking the order (they will be
watching other people while you talk to them).

Mind you, when you have a Wong Kei gold card (like myself) you get
a private table away from all the commoners - and the people will
actually talk to you.

Funnily enough the times I've complained about the food they've done
something about it fairly promptly. Sure they tutted and rolled their
eyes but they did actually fix it.

It's cool because you end up sitting on the big table and
meeting other people by 'accidently' lashing them with noodles.

I think it's a case of knowing what to expect. If you expect quick, very
cheap food, that tastes OK then you are fine. If you want a romantic dinner
for 2, forget it and go to any of the other places 2 minutes walk away.

For anyone not familiar with Wong Kei, this is the place where several
of the staff were jailed for "clubbing the customers like seals", I
think the newspaper report went. Zagat rates the service as
"legendary".

On the upside, it can feed Piers to capacity and you'd still have

Does EC2 count as central London ?

The White Hart in Clifton Street (near Liverpool Street station) has a 
private room that would be big enough.

They do food and as a plus point, it has it's own bar !

I'll check out costs etc if people are interested.

Certainly did. Sorry I didn't get to meet many people or stay very long, but Thursday 
nights are notoriously busy for me.

 I'd be interested in any opinions that people had about the venue as
 I'm still looking for a new home for our social meetings.

It didn't seem too bad - my pints were 2.50 each, which for central London isn't bad. 
There were certainly space issues, however.

I quite fancy the idea of going to different pubs, rather than sticking to a "home", 
but I'm like that so feel free to ignore me :-)

Hmm. yeah. There was a bit of a mix up - I booked in advance and asked
for seating for 30 people but when I arrived they'd done standing space
for 30 instead. Which was a bit of an arse.

See the points people have with noise and smoke though.

The TVRs were 34 quid each but had about 8 shots of vodka and 8 shots of
tequila in and 6 cans of redbull.

Which is quite expensive but not *that* bad. 

I liked it because it only took 20 mins to get home :)

Ok, I've heard of TVR's but yet to see one.  Would someone like to give me
an idea as to how many of these things are meant to be consumed by how many
people.

How is it presented?

The impression I get from above is thas it is 1 TVR per person, in a 4
pint pitcher to last all night.
