The Chinese Man was a customer at the Golden Mandarin Restaurant on Market Street in Manchester when Stan and Hilda Ogden dined there in July 1968 to celebrate Stan becoming a "managing director" i.e. running his own window cleaning round. Hilda had been given the restaurant's name by Emily Nugent and looked forward to sampling some exotic foreign food. She was therefore fascinated to watch the man eat with chopsticks from a bowl but brought crashing down to earth when Stan ordered the only items from the menu that he recognised - egg, chips and peas.
