I'll cross that off my list for the 'sights of the north' tour. At least there was some of the old decor to 'enjoy'. I expect that avoiding arson is a reason so many places are tightly sealed up. There will always be firebugs who get a thrill out of torching things.
My dad had a colleague visit from Germany once and took him for an Indian. The guy foolishly asked for the hottest they had and then had to suffer eating it to avoid losing face. I never saw the point in that. Food is to be enjoyed.
