Previously, we shared how a China TikToker was perplexed by the rather arbitrary pricing of mixed rice eateries in our country which left many Malaysians amused.

Now, another local eatery which imposed an arbitrary charge on its customers has gone viral on social media, this time causing the ire of many Malaysians.

In an anonymous message shared with @meinmokhtar who posted it to X (formerly Twitter), a Malaysian father shared his shock after an eatery in Kuala Lumpur charged him an extra RM5 as a ‘fine’ for leaving the table messy after eating.

As of the time of writing, the sharing went viral with over 697,000 views and more than 2,900 likes.

Eating with his family, including a child under the age of 2, at the restaurant in Kampung Baru, the man also complained about what he considered an expensive price for the dishes that they ate there.

He shared,

“This is the 1st time I got ‘fined’ RM5 at an eatery for having a messy table (my child is under the age of 2).

“Stir fry kailan with salted fish, omelette, siakap 3 rasa (3-flavoured sea bass), no Tom Yum, for RM55. Super expensive. Plus the ‘fine’ too.”


Disappointed, the man asked whether an eatery is allowed to charge customers extra for leaving a table messy and whether he could report the matter to the Domestic Trade and Cost of Living Ministry (KPDN).


Many Malaysians were perplexed by the arbitrary ‘fine’

In the comments, many Malaysians were perplexed by the arbitrary RM5 charge for having messy tables, though many think that the RM55 price was reasonable.

One commenter said that this was the 1st time they ever heard about eateries ‘fining’ customers for having messy tables. They added that the father could report to KPDN if the eatery didn’t have any notice about the charge visible on the premises.

Meanwhile, another commenter joked that the eatery owner must have been a prefect when they were at school, hence why the arbitrary charge for messy tables.

Besides that, one commenter shifted the blame to the family itself for not having the decency to clear the table after eating and such a ‘fine’ is justifiable as the eatery’s staff had to clean the table afterwards.
