Would you pay S$20 for a bottle of mineral water at a restaurant, even if it is a 2 Star Michelin restaurant?
Would you expect a bottle to S$20?
That’s what gave one young lady and her 2 makan kakis a shock when they dined at Waku Ghin at Marina Bay Sands.
The trio spent S$1750 at the restaurant in total, ordering 3 set meals and additional drinks.
The unpleasant surprise came in the form of the cost of mineral water – 3 bottles for S$60, not including 7 percent GST and 10 percent service charge.
The price of a bottle of Sea Breeze alcohol, at S$15, was even cheaper than a bottle of water.
A restaurant that has earned 2 Michelin stars is deemed as “a restaurant worth a detour, indicating excellent cuisine and skillfully and carefully crafted dishes of outstanding quality.”
At the astronomical price of S$20, we’d expect Waku Ghin’s water to come from no less than Mars!
