Our menu at work reads

Curry dishes - £5
(Includes boiled rice or chips - fried rice 30p extra)

Chips- £1
Fried rice £2

If, for example, you ordered a chicken curry, with chips and fried rice, how much would you expect to pay?

YouTheCat Wed 24-Jul-13 23:45:55

£5.30

But you're going to tell us you get charged £7?

I'd say £7 -chips included but you pay extra for a portion of rice

No way would I pay that for a canteen meal

Oh right, have re-read. Yes £7 then, if you have chips and fried rice.

£5.30 for the curry and rice with 30 pence tacked on for fried rice. Then chips on top.

TylerHopkins Wed 24-Jul-13 23:49:09

£7

MagzFarqharson Wed 24-Jul-13 23:49:25

£7 here too, does seem a bit steep though.

lborolass Wed 24-Jul-13 23:49:47

I'd say you could argue £6.30 - £5.30 for the curry and fried rice plus an extra £1 for the chips. Did you get charged £7.30?

Dayshiftdoris Wed 24-Jul-13 23:49:49

£6.30

The dish is £5 with the rice, add 30p for fried rice then £1 for chips

£6.30 smile

BuildMeUpButtercup Wed 24-Jul-13 23:50:09

I'd pay up to £5. Definitely no more than that though!!

D0oinMeCleanin Wed 24-Jul-13 23:50:57

It's where I work at a takeaway, not my canteen and but it's bloody expensive I admit.

I charged £6.30 because it works out cheaper to put the fried rice with the curry and then pay for the chips.

I spent 15 minutes explaining why it wasn't £5.30 and he still didn't get it. After repeating myself for 15 minutes he demanded his money back and is complaining to my manager in the morning and reporting us to trading standards and he's going to have me fired hmm

He was sober.

Rummikub Wed 24-Jul-13 23:50:59

My head hurts. What's the answer?

Floralnomad Wed 24-Jul-13 23:51:13

£6.30

DespicableWee Wed 24-Jul-13 23:51:18

I would say £6:30 if you are paying the 30p extra charge for the fried rice with the curry, then the chips as an extra portion.

£7 if the chips are classed as being the side and the rice the extra. Im guessing you were charged £5 for the curry, then £3 for the rice and chips so paid £8 total as it all went through separately?

AmyFarrahFowlerCooper Wed 24-Jul-13 23:51:18

£6.30 - fried rice as my meal option and then chips as a side order

But I'm guessing unless you specifically say it like that you get charged £7?

Rummikub Wed 24-Jul-13 23:51:59

Oops, just saw answer. Yeah makes sense.

YouTheCat Wed 24-Jul-13 23:52:25

What an idiot. You were doing him a favour. Most places would have charged him £7.

£5 for curry and chips and an extra £2 for the fried rice.

kim147 Wed 24-Jul-13 23:52:27

£6.30

If you get curry with fried rice £5.30 plus £1 for chips.

Or

£5 for curry and chips plus £2 for fried rice = £7

So as a customer, I'd argue for the first.

SoleSource Wed 24-Jul-13 23:52:51

£5.30

TylerHopkins Wed 24-Jul-13 23:52:51

I've changed my mind. I reckon £5.30. The £2 portion of fried rice is probably larger than the portion you receive as part of the curry deal.
