Now THAT'S what we call an Olympic restaurant bill (Pic)

That’ll be £5 for the fried rice… oh, and £19,000 for drinks.

YOU KNOW WHAT it’s like. You’re there having a lovely meal in a restaurant… then the bill arrives with a nasty surprise.

But it’s not usually quite this nasty. A redditor posted this image of a £44,660 (€57,000!) bill which they say their waiter friend presented to a group during the Olympics.

So that’ll be £5 for the vegetable fried rice… oh, and £19,000 for a 160-year-old bottle of Hennessy brandy.


Gawker says it has identified the restaurant in question, which it believes is China Tang at London's Dorchester Hotel. The menu reveals that the £19,000 Hennessy is just a half bottle.

Gold medal for that waiter.
