Anyone wondering what the sign in Chinese in the front window of the Peking Chef restaurant at 178 Hoe Street is all about, it is an advert for a waiter or waitress, who must have legal residence permission.

It is very kind of the Peking Chef to seek to abide by the UK's immigration laws. I do wonder, though, in what way the management of this generally well-thought of restaurant consider advertising only to people who can read Chinese demonstrates a commitment to abiding by equal opportunities and anti-discrimination laws. Most of the customers any newly recruited staff will be serving do not speak Chinese and the menus are in English.
