That reminds me of another couple of toilety things.

The best toilet in Australia is in the restaurant on the 35th floor
of the Sofitel hotel in Melbourne's CBD. Picture a toilet with full
glass walls (no-one can see in; you're 35 stories up, remember), looking
out over Melbourne, which is a very flat city (and hence you can see
for miles).

There's a lo-res pic here (down the bottom):

Not sure how you'd be able to recreate that from your 1st-floor
restaurant though, Madhu.

Something else that's cool but no doubt ridiculously expensive:
a restaurant called 'Cargo', in Melbourne's Docklands, has toilet
cubicles with clear glass doors. As soon as you lock them, though,
the door frosts over to opaque white. I assume there's some sort
of LCD-like thing in there, but I've no idea what.

(Actually, I just read that they're $AU15,000 each. Ouch.)

They're not without their problems though: a friend's mother was
there when someone went in, sat down, and didn't lock the door (she
thought it was one-way glass). Much hilarity ensued.
