A Japanese restaurant in Chinatown is giving out free meals to anyone who is "going hungry".

Free udon

The restaurant is also doing its part to help out the less fortunate.

A sign outside the place states that those who are "poor and hungry" are welcome to enter and receive a free bowl of hot udon, "no strings attached".

Their message was also stated in Mandarin.

All one needs to do is ask the staff there.

The free meals are only available during lunch.

Sake Labo also urged those who know of anyone in the area who is going hungry to direct them to the restaurant.
