Restaurant Sues Blogger in Kuwait, Could Set a Bad Precedent for the Middle East

Filed under: News — Tags: , , — Khaled A. @ 10:33 am

A blog from Kuwait, 248am is being sued by a Japanese restaurant named Benihana because of this review.

If the restaurant win this would set a bad precedent in the blogging world in Kuwait and possibly the rest of the Middle East. Will we see restaurants sue anyone who writes an unfavorable review on Qaym? (Qaym is an Arabic restaurant review site).

I do have one thing to say to benihana’s management:

Hmm, so when are you guys planning to open in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia? hmm?

Seriously though, stop this silliness, benihana and improve your restaurant.

On the first day of 2006, Applebee’s Riyadh was officially opened! They were working on it for a few months non-stop, very comitted to open on time. Unlike Chili’s, which was supposed to open October 2004! Applebee's Logo I went there, the food was great! (its on Tahliah St. if you want to go)

I’d link to a flickr image, it it wasn’t blocked! Here’s a nice pic of a triple chocolate meltdown
