Noth­ing is for free: ask how much food ‘ex­tras’ cost be­fore say­ing yes

7 Days in Dubai - - WELLBEING -

In re­sponse to the let­ter ‘Ex­tra charges leave diner with sour taste’ (Sept 13), many con­sumers at food and bev­er­age out­lets pre­fer to leave with a sour taste about the ser­vice and bill just be­cause they hes­i­tate to pop the ques­tion: “How much does it cost?” Ask be­fore you nod your head with a yes, espe­cially out­lets where you pay be­fore re­ceiv­ing your or­der. I al­ways do that be­cause I know that staff are trained to up-sell ev­ery­thing on the menu and close a big­ger fig­ure every trans­ac­tion. Nawaf AG UAE
