Please watch out if your coming to Singapore for a holiday or trip and you find yourself at boat quay looking for something to eat.
I have lived in Singapore for nearly 20 years now and brought a friend to boat quay last week for dinner, we ate a Thai restaurant, we only had the following, stingray , frogs legs a vegy dish , pineapple rice and 2 beers, now I know for a fact anywhere else this would have only cost 50 to 70 dollars, so when the bill came and it was 247 dollars you can imagine my shock.
The trouble is my friend paid and it was not until he had settled the bill with his credit card did I find out how much it was.
I felt terrible as it was my idea to bring him there.
There was a couple sat on the table next to us disputing their bill when we turned up, I did not think much of it at the time, but now I know why.
The trick they pull, is to repeat you order back to you very quickly, and as they walk away say "large" or "big"... If you look at the menu you will see a small portion is 12 dollars medium about 18 then large jumps up 50 or more, the thing is you not getting a large potion your just paying for it.
