M’sian Family of Six Goes Out For Normal Dinner, Restaurant Charges Them RM533
We all remember the Seremban chicken rice place that can charge up to hundreds just for a few plates of chicken rice. Apparently, there’s another place like that in KL City Centre.
A woman on Facebook shared in a KL community page about how she went out for dinner with her family, and they ended up paying RM533 for 5 dishes!
She said that she went out with her husband, child and 3 elderly family members to a restaurant in Pudu. She said that there were only 5 adults, and they did not order any alcohol at all, just a pot of chrysanthemum tea. They ordered steamed fish, steamed chicken, stir-fried tauge, some lala (clams) and some steamed meat patties. When the bill came, they were shocked that the whole dinner came up to RM533!
The bill breakdown goes like this:
- Tauge with bittergourd RM20
- Lala RM68
- Steamed fish tail RM258
- Steamed chicken RM88
- Steamed pork RM45
According to China Press, the restaurant didn’t really give them a proper receipt, it was just a piece of paper with itemised billing, and they couldn’t even identify some of the things that the staff wrote! When asked for a receipt with their restaurant name on it, instead of putting the itemised billing inside again, the boss just wrote F&B.
When asked why it’s so expensive, the boss said that they use the freshest ingredients. As the woman’s husband did not want to argue with them, they paid and left.
Netizens called the restaurant a “con shop” and they are now bombarding the restaurant’s Facebook page with bad reviews. After looking into it further, food review sites such as Foursquare shows that the expensive prices have been a constant, even from 2011!
The restaurant has now taken to Facebook to explain their prices and this is what they have said:
“We get our freshest and best fish from our fisherman friends and we only serve either the head or the tail. In a day, we’ll only serve 1 or 2, so, they are limited stock. Also for the chicken, it is not normal steamed chicken but BRANDY steamed chicken. We use quality brandy.”
What do you think about this? Do you think the prices are justified?
