A restaurant in Canada was recently blown up by a generous tip from one of its customers.
Bambu Restaurant, an Asian fusion restaurant in Ottawa, posted on Instagram about a $ 700 tip it received last week from one of its regular customers.
According to a photo on the receipt, the customer gave a generous tip to buy a bottle of wine for $ 43.
“Thanks, it just doesn’t seem enough,” the restaurant wrote on Instagram. “How can we thank this amazing customer for showing his support by eating regularly with us and leaving a $ 700 tip to share with the staff today.”
