A naked restaurant opening in London now has a waiting list of nearly 30,000 diners before it has even opened - but only a tenth of those will actually have the chance to eat there.

The Bunyadi, which bills itself as Londons naked restaurant, is set to open in the capital for three months.

But, despite the doors not being open until June, 28,984 have submitted their email addresses to Bunyadis waiting list, charmed by the idea of a Pangea-like world of wood-flame grilled meals and a ban on Instagram.

But those hoping to get a spot at one of the wood-hewn seats might be disappointed - because the 42-capacity restaurant will only be able to seat around 3,000 during the pop-up period. 

In the restaurant, diners will be allowed to wear clothes. But it will also have a naked section - where photography is strictly banned - in which gowns will be provided, which people must fold and put on the seats on arrival.

The website says they aim to create a world free from phones, electric lights and even clothing, using natural, home-grown ingredients to envelope clients in the atmosphere.
