There are similar policies in some places in the UK. I remember a Chinese eat all you can buffet I went to, which had some policy like this if you left food on your plate, but I can't remember how it worked exactly now.

When the sign says........." all you can eat"......you are defrauding the restaurant by taking more than you can finish.
With that logic, you also would be if you stopped before you were stuffed full as a tick. Doubt they care about that, though.

As for the policy ... it'd be the last time I ate at that restaurant.

Veering slightly off topic, but if the chicken is underdone, the diner should flag down a bus boy and let him know that the chicken is raw inside, so the restaurant can take it off the buffet before someone gets sick from it.

I suggest not taking more than a bite or two of an item off the buffet if you are not certain that you will like. If it is wonderful, go back for more. If you have two bites shoved to the side of the plate and tell the staff that you discovered that you don't like it, I doubt that they would charge for it. That isn't the same thing as a huge serving of spaghetti only half eaten.
