Restaurants in one Beijing neighborhood have been ordered to limit the number of foreigners they serve.

Cafes and pizza bars in Wudaokou, Beijing, were reportedly ordered this week to serve no more than 10 foreigners at a time.

Three bars and restaurants confirmed they had received the orders.

The restrictions would last until two days after the end of the National People's Congress (NPC) — China's annual legislative meeting.

053A notice from a company called Pyro Pizza, reads: "Until March 22nd, every Friday night and Saturday, as requested by local authorities, we can only allow a maximum of 10 foreigners in our store at a time. We appreciate your understanding during these challenging times."

Workers at two restaurants said that police had made requests to limit the number of customers, particularly those of foreigners. An employee at another pizza bar said they couldn't let foreigners into their premises after 8 p.m.

051According to the staff, the orders were given last week, shortly after the NPC got underway.

It's unknown why establishments in Wudaokou may have been targeted. But its role as Beijing's university district, due to it housing both Tsinghua and Peking University, may have something to do with it.
