A frustrated diner has taken to TikTok to accuse a restaurant of “first-hand discrimination” after her outfit was deemed “too revealing” by door staff.
Katie Haywood was told to change her clothes before entering the venue MNKY HSE in Mayfair.
The reveller was visiting the London restaurant to celebrate a friend’s 21st birthday, before she was allegedly told to cover up.
According to Katie, door staff said she'd need to change out of her pink crop top and wrap-around patterned skirt that bared her midriff – as it may offend other diners.

The security guard went on to explain that Katie can’t enter the restaurant wearing her outfit because “there’s a lot of Arab families in here”.
She reluctantly agreed to rejig her skirt so that it covered her over – but claims she was made to do it in the middle of the road and in front of male members of staff.
But after being shown to her table she was allegedly asked again to wear a jacket – despite her friends also wearing revealing clothing.
She believes the only problem was that she was a bigger girl showing skin – but was allegedly ignored when she asked to speak to management.
The TikToker claimed: "I asked her to speak to management twice and they only got the management when my best friend complained at the end when I left. Then they ended up offering free food."
Do you think the diner’s outfit choice was “too revealing”, or was the restaurant discriminating against a “bigger or thicker” girl? Let us know your thoughts in the comments below.
