    Well if it is this group of persons eating lunch there they will be annoyed if waiter keeps announcing the price as though they cannot pay.
    When they get the bill for the Sing$1,200 sultan fish they will be even more angry - and say why so cheap? Why recommend us such a cheap fish? think we cannot afford better is it?

    why are the views so divided between the ang moh issue with prawn at newton and this 1.2k fish at rws? i wonder if it is ang moh reporting this, will it be a different response?

    (the man could have recommend u a D300 or D5000 instead)

    So in this case i think the guy trusts the 'professionalism' and the service of the waiter/waitress too much.

    So lesson learnt to all: Always ask the price before agreeing...
    Agree. Good to ask if not be prepared to pay and pay

    Newton is an over glorify hawker centre, cum tourist trap..... you don't expect to pay high class restaurant price for hawker food....

    High class restaurant in RWS are meant for well paying customer.... you can't expect to pay hawker price while eating there.....

    Ang mo so what.. If Ang mo get a $1,200 bill after eating at high class restaurant and he never ask for the price in advance.., he should also suck thumb.

    The key difference between these 2 issues is, One is a hawker center where patrons are supposingly price conscious. If prices are not within normal (Hawker center) expectation, the vendor should inform the patron.

    The Other is high class restaurant where pple with deep pockets and "face conscious" visit.. Waitress needs to exercise discretion so as not to provide any opportunity for the "high-end" patron to lose face. The prices are also not expected to be "normal" as they might serve some exotic stuff. If the patron is concerned of the price, he should take the initiative to ask.

    These 2 case are different in nature..

    For those with really deep pockets, what is $1,200....

    A while ago someone makes a comment like "$600000 per year is peanuts".. that would roughly translate to one $1600 meal per day..

    If $1600 per day can be peanuts to some pple..

    $1,200 can also be peanuts to some pple.. maybe that's what the restaurant feel about their patrons....

    if this young chap will buy me fine dinning, I'll take the initiative to ask the price, so that I will not end up in an embarrassing situation.

    I think you ask waitress about price before ordering is less embarrassing than bargaining with the cashier for discounts when paying. I would think Mr Liu is a walk-in diner. Usually for corporate diners, they would have asked their secretary to reserve and order the dishes in advanced. So they know the cost of the meal in advanced.

    Just don't know if he is paying out of pocket or charging it to company. Maybe the company is questioning the amount and refuse to reimburse him so that is why the big hooha.

    What's the fuss here? When Channel NewsAsia (CNA) promoted the consumption of an endangered species, I don't see people making a big hoo-hah over it?

    He should have know that eating in casino restaurants are never cheap, since he wanted to eat there, then he should be prepared to pay whatever price stated to him.

    Most of the food are priced 2 to 3x above market rate.
    Not forgetting casino's restaurant are meant for those freaking rich people who can afford to gamble tens and hundred of thousand dollars.

    your analogy got one error, yes they recommend you take d3s instead, but the bill should come to 70K.

    its a $6/100g fish sold as $68/100g~

    but ok lah, there indeed are people whom are willing to pay 10 fold the prices for things sometimes
    pedantic.
