Well... if you're considering any act of arrogance to piss off the manager or whoever... I hope all your food has already arrived. If not, perhaps it would be for the better you leave anyway.
Diplomacy goes a long way... Confrontation isn't something that work very well in the context of asian cultures.
The clear unequivocal position in law is that it is not illegal to take photographs in the situation that you have described - illegal meaning commission of a criminal offence, or even for that matter, stretching it even to apply to civil liability.
However, given that you are on their premises, they are able to stop you from taking photos and if you continue from that point forward, they do have the right to ask you to leave, failing which you could be guilty of criminal trespass. Note however that they do not have any remedies for photographs already taken nor the right to demand that you surrender or delete any photographs.
The sticky situation then arises if you are halfway into or just starting the meal - do they have the right to ask you to leave. My view (which is not as unequivocal as the above two paragraphs) is that if this condition was not drawn to your attention prior to acceptance of the contract, they would be in breach of contract by not fulfilling their end of the agreement; ie to allow you to consume your food in peace. This is of course, merely for academic argument and it is not likely this will become an issue in real life as most pple will guai guai stop taking photos and then consume their food.
No.. the question is what are you going to do? You probably won't be able to tell he spit in your food anyway.
Bakerzin is another place to keep an eye out.

anyway on the other hand the auntie in the restarant clearing plates was real polite, totally enjoyed her service, even described to us the item servings and stuff and was smiling all the time
You look like a famous chef, they thought you trying to copy thier dishes
Strictly speaking, the term "illegal" is used to mean that the act, if committed, would render the person liable for a criminal offence (e.g. theft, trespass etc).
However, there are others who use the term "illegal" loosely to also denote liability for a civil claim. For example: "It is illegal not to deliver the goods after you had signed a contract to provide them".
I was trying to draw a distinction between the two in regard to the level of confidence I have that the act was not illegal.
Imagine there is a coordinated effort to actually go down to these places as a group of let's say 20 photographers...each sitting individually, then we all start shooting food photos when it arrives, all together, wonder how would the manager react...just a funny thot
Or maybe he will make it like a competition.....whoever has the best food photos will be entitled to lifetime discount.......keke
