Why shouldn't a restaurant called "London Restaurant" in Hong Kong have anything to do with London or anything British?

In one episode of a TV series that aired in 2017, which incidentally has nothing to do with visiting restaurants and in no way explains why, they are in Hong Kong and find this restaurant called "London restaurant"(see first screenshot) in English letters.

However, when entering the restaurant (which strangely requires an elevator to get into the building) it doesn't look like what I would call "London" or "British". There are tons of people (all Asians, which is not surprising) and a lot of noise and stress when "waitresses" pull and push large metal containers on wheels (with food). There are plenty of tables, bright lights and the atmosphere really has nothing to do with London or an English / British environment that I can say. (See the two other screenshots.)

Why does this restaurant have "London" in its name? It even does attempt look like something you saw in london? I'm not a London expert, so maybe I'm wrong, and is this in fact some kind of restaurant that they found efficient and copied to Hong Kong?

USA – I booked a British Airways flight that flies from London to Philadelphia on a "Visa Package" (I have an Immigration Visa Approval Form I-797).

Nobody knows whether the current travel restrictions will be lifted by April 21. The lifting of the restrictions is a political decision that will be made in the future, and the people who will make the decision may not even know what they are going to do.

The longer you wait to trade, the smaller your options and choices will be. And if your options and decisions narrow, your tensions and uncertainties will increase.

Therefore, it is best to now change your flight so that it arrives at the approved airport, and as @phoog comments below, to ensure that you can enter the United States as an immigrant if you are not from the UK, Ireland or Ireland the Schengen area and has been outside all these areas for at least 14 days.

What self-defense weapons are legal in London against a single attacker?

I will fly to London again to work and I look Asian. The corona virus causes racists to attack Asians in London – reported in Sky, Guardian.

I still don't make cotton why What self defense weapons are legal in England? has been closed but not What self-defense items are allowed in India ?. I tried to focus on one option here – when only one person is attacking you and nobody is around.

Trains – Purchase a night ticket for the night from Cornwall to London from Canada for May 2020

You can book sleeping cards on the GWR website. Enter your departure and destination stations (London Paddington is the right London end point for the Cornish Sleeper) and set the time to late in the evening. The sleep train is highlighted in the search results. The tariffs with which berths (beds) can be bought are also highlighted. Note that flexible tariffs such as Super Off-Peak Singles / Returns have a surcharge that must be paid for a berth, while inflexible tariffs apply to either a seat or a berth. Make sure you know whether you are paying for a berth in a compartment (ie a bed) or just for a seat. If you have an odd number of people, you may also have the option to share a compartment with a stranger of the same sex (one compartment has two berths arranged as bunk beds) or to pay more to occupy one compartment alone. Note that the sleeper does not run on Saturday evening.

GWR offers e-tickets for delivery options for people living abroad, which you can collect using the mobile app. If you prefer, you can instead print out a physical ticket from a machine at your station of origin on arrival – if you consider that you need your original payment card to collect it. I don't think GWR will send tickets abroad, but I could be wrong.
