Hyderabad: Customer charged Re. 1 for salt in restaurant

Hyderabad: A customer was charged Re 1 for the extra salt provided to him on request in new plush restaurant cum-bar, at Raj Bhawan Road in Somajiguda. According to sources, a man who was dining out with his family asked for some salt for the lime soda. When he got the bill, he noticed that he was charged Re 1 for the extra for the salt he requested.

Though the law permits restaurants to decide what items are chargeable and rate them, the restaurant is embarrassed about the goof-up. They have put the whole blame on the new software installed recently.

As reported by DC, later, the restaurant offered to pay back the customer a sum of Rs 150 which is the price of the lime soda. But the customer declined it.
