KUNMING / WUHAN - When Han Peng walked into the Astsidjmoy Maid Restaurant in Kunming, Southwest China's Yunnan province, he needed a moment to take in the scene.

The new themed, or "cosplay", restaurant had striking purple dcor and waitresses in French maid outfits who greeted customers by calling them "master".

"I heard of this restaurant on the Internet and brought my girlfriend here," Han said.

Like a lot of other patrons, 19-year-old Han enjoyed the experience, at least at first, which explains why the Japanese-style restaurants are popping up in cities across the country.
