A restaurant in New York has banned talking at the table so people can eat in silence.

The eat restaurant in Brooklyn started silent four course dinners in August, after getting the idea from the way Indian monks eat in silence.

People eating there can only use their body language and facial expressions to communicate, until their meal is over.

The restaurant says eating without talking helps people to experience and enjoy their food better.
