Make the most of your restaurant meal with these 5 essential tips.
Fast food isn't often the healthiest and cheapest alternative for feeding ourselves. But we all have some of those days when we grab something to taste, and our simplest choice is to turn by another quick-serve eatery or nearest burger joint. But don't worry, with the help of these restaurant hacks, you will get fresh and healthy food with discounts on the entire bill. Unfortunately, these are some of the essential things that not everyone is aware of.
Before paying the bill, keep in mind that you don't need to pay any extra tax since India's GST has been implemented. However, restaurants charge you separately as service charges in the bill. Service charges mean that you want to pay money after being happy with the restaurant's service. Let us tell you that it is the customer's choice whether to pay or not. So the next time you go, pay your bill only after removing it from the service charge/tax. However, it is up to you if you still want to go ahead and pay the service charge.
When you go to the restaurant and ask for water, you are asked whether mineral water or plain. Mineral water means bottled water; apart from the price, the restaurant also charges you by putting their tax on it. But even if you order plain water, only mineral water is served to you because it is taken out of the water purifier and given to you in a glass.
Whenever you order beverages in the restaurant, ask them to bring it without ice. It has two advantages: you will get the exact quantity, and second, you will get the right taste, which gets spoiled due to the previously poured ice. However, later you can put ice in it.
Most restaurants do online promotions to increase their business and attract customers by giving various discounts. So before you go to a restaurant, it is ideal for checking about it online for any special deals, offers or packages.
Many restaurants have special discounts for unique customers. So if you are their regular customer or a special deal running in the restaurant on a particular day, you will benefit from the bill.
