Kelp Restaurant

What is Kelp?
Kelp is one of Neopia's finest restaurants. With it's fantastic location in the centre of Maraqua and it's delicious courses on the menu, its one of Neopia's hot spots; everyone wants to go there and everyone wants to be seen there. That's why it's very hard to get into! Apart from the getting in Kelp problem, the second problem might be the huge wallet you have to bring if you want to dine there. Eating a full 3 course dinner and having a drink to go with it, will easily cost you around 70,000nps!

Getting into Kelp:
When you arrive at Kelp, the Scorchio waiter will ask you if you have made a reservation. Of course you don't have a reservation since it's not possible to make reservations, but you say your name anyway, it doesn't hurt to try. Then the waiter will either tell you that the restaurant is already full, and that if you want to dine there, you really need to make a reservation next time, or you will be seated by a Scorchio Waiter.

name eh?
I am afraid I dont have anything under that name. There are no more tables available, we are a very popular establishment you know. Maybe you should call in advance next time.

If you get this, don't let it put you down, keep on trying, just keep going back and keep saying your name. You will get a moment where he will let you in there. You will see the following happening:

Miss/Mr name... Wonderful, someone will seat you momentarily.

As you click on momentarily a Uni waitress will welcome you.

The Uni Waitress:
The Uni waitress will explain to you how Kelp works.

Basically she will tell you that you can click on the four different menus on the top of the page. There are Appetisers, Main Courses, Desserts, Cocktails. You can choose one item from each menu. You do not need to pick one item from each menu, you can also just have a drink if you like, but one item from each menu is the maximum you can order.

You need to make up your mind quickly on what courses you want, if you hesistate too much and it takes you a long time to decide, you will find yourself being kicked out of Kelp and you need to try to get in again!

Eating at Kelp:
When you're done choosing the courses you want, you click on 'Eat'. On that page you will see the items you have selected, and how much it's going to cost you. Then you can click 'Eat your food'. And your active pet will get to eat all the delicious things you've picked out for him or her. If you're lucky your pet will not be able to eat everything, and you get to take home leftovers with you. This means you get to actually keep one of the items that you ordered and paid for. In order for this to happen you do not need to order 4 items from the menu's but it would increase your chance of getting leftovers. If you want to increase the chance of getting leftovers, make sure that your active pet is bloated or very bloated before you let him/her eat the food.

I need a nap.

I am not sure I will be able to eat everything... Can I take something with me?!? Your pet is allowed to take some home. We have already boxed up the leftovers for you!

The avatar:
Getting the Kelp avatar 'Bon Appétit', has everything to do with these leftovers.

Getting this avatar is random when you dine at the Kelp Restaurant and take home some leftovers. This means that you might not get the avatar if you get to take home leftovers!
