Shocking Bill and Miscommunication

Apart from the shock over the price, Liu also encountered miscommunication issues with the restaurant's waiter regarding his order. The issues were eventually resolved, although the beverages received were described as bitter and strong. Liu indicated that with the price paid, he could have enjoyed better food elsewhere, such as at Burger King or Starbucks, and warned Anjappar Restaurant to improve its service. This incident reflects a common complaint by many visitors about the perceived excessive rise in food and beverage prices at certain restaurants and eateries.
