Ron Eade reported earlier today :
** "The Province of Ontario has reviewed and revoked its restaurant business name — [ Union Local 613 ](http://union613.ca/) — because folks may confuse it with a non-profit, bona fide labour organization." **

So I wondered, what other restaurants have potentially confusing name.  You know, like “Panda Garden” in Kanata, that ** _ DOESN’T ACTUALLY SERVE PANDAS! _ ** Or the Byward Market bar called “Liquor Store” which is _ ** NOT IN FACT AN LCBO OUTLET! ** _

**

** I asked OttawaStart’s Twitter followers if they were confused by any restaurant names.  You can see all the responses under the hashtag #confusingottawa .  Here are my favourites:

**
 Shawarma Palace

, while delicious, is disappointingly non-regal.
