Four ladies who went to dine at a Japanese restaurant in Lagos literally bit more than they can chew after they racked up a bill of over N111,000k in one sitting.
Skabash.com learned that the embarrassing incident occurred at KOI restaurant and lounge in Victoria Island, Lagos state.
One of the affected ladies, Jane, told our correspondent that she was shocked when she saw the huge bill.
She said the situation temporarily made them stranded as they had to make calls to source for funds to pay the bill
Jane explained that it all started when she and her friends went outing to celebrate with a colleague who was about to relocate to the UK.
According to her, they wanted to give their friend a treat before she departs the country.
‘’We wanted Amanda to have a memorable meal on her last day in Nigeria, so we planned to have a meal at some highbrow restaurants on the Island.
‘’One of our friends suggested that we try something new with Japanese cuisine, so we opted for KOI restaurant and lounge,” she said.
Jane noted that their night out became dramatic after she learned about the huge bill attached to the cuisines on the menu.
‘‘The restaurant uses bar codes which you can scan to access the menu, after I ordered one drink, I learned that that drink alone cost N8,000. I immediately wanted us to leave that place but we had already placed an order and the cooks were preparing the meal.”
‘’Even when they brought the meal, I lost my appetite because of the huge bill we had to pay. The total amounted to N111,375K, I couldn’t believe my eyes. What saved us was that a colleague who is a banker volunteered to cover the bill while we pay her back later.”
The lady who is married told our correspondent that while some of her friends called their boyfriends to bail them out during the incident, she refused to call her husband because she knew he would be very angry about the embarrassing situation.
Jane promised to stay far away from any Japanese or Chinese restaurant in the future, noting that their meals are unreasonably expensive.
