An Australian restaurant chain known for its “great burgers & rude service” is going to test tempers in Jakarta with an announcement that it will open in the Indonesian capital next month.

Of course, the rudeness is part of the gimmick at Karen’s Diner, which prides itself as the world’s rudest restaurant and a homage to entitled white women. The clips below show why it’s not exactly for the faint of heart (and why you shouldn’t bring kids along).

Recently, Karen’s Diner announced that it is partnering with South Jakarta’s Bengkel Burger to bring the former’s renowned service from hell to Indonesia.

A follow up post from Bengkel Burger says Karen’s Diner is coming on Dec. 15 and will occupy the same space as the burger bar, which is located on Jalan Panglima Polim.

We have reached out to Karen’s Diner for more information regarding their Jakarta venture, including whether they are bringing their wait staff from Australia or hiring locally, and whether or not they would accept taking on snarky writers whose dream it is to be assholes without any repercussions.

We’ll update this story as soon as we get a reply message from Karen’s Diner, which would undoubtedly come laced with expletives.

Karen’s Diner, if you read this and you choose not to reply to us, get fucked.
