a whopping rm600 fish head curry at famous mamak restaurant.
an expensive simple meal.
fish head curry worked out to be rm150 a bowl
restaurant claimed high pricing due to size of fish head
diner believed excessive charges because of restaurant’s prime location
a receipt posted on social media by faudzy asrafudeen sayed mohamed has gone viral, with the diner sharing his view that he was “exuberantly overcharged” for the fish head curry.
a dinner for two families at a popular restaurant in kuala lumpur last weekend ended on a shocking note when the diners were presented with a hefty bill for fish head curry.. .
the receipt posted online on nov 20 showed the price of the fish head curry was rm600, which was for four bowls, or rm150 a bowl.
the total bill for the meal, which included other dishes and beverages, came to a grand total of almost rm1,000..
astonished by the bill, faudzy said in the post: “i feel that i have been exuberantly overcharged…what do you all think…i have decided not to patronize the place again…so all please beware…please share this with your friend.” .
when contacted by mstar online, faudzy, a 56-year-old director of market development, said that he had not expected that a simple meal at a restaurant would be that expensive.
he said that this was not the first time that he had eaten fish head curry and that he was usually charged between rm50 and rm80 per bowl.
“i didn’t look at the menu because i usually know the average price to pay. even though i had budgeted for this meal, i was shocked to see the price of the fish head curry there.
“i asked the cashier to explain the bill to me. he said that the price of the curry depended on the size of the fish head..
“if the head is big, it will be priced between rm120 and rm150, while the smaller ones would be between rm60 and rm80,” he was quoted as saying..
