For every rupee I earn, I pay 30 paise as tax (30%). When I take that 70 paise to a retaurant, I can only buy stuff worth 50.4 paise as I have to pay 20% VAT and 10% service charges.
So that means that the can of Guinness that I thought was 350 bucks actually cost me 700 bucks of my earned salary!!!
They levy service charge because they think people do not tip enough!!
All the taxes/charges included here are the ones that the eating joint or the government force me to pay. Tip is something that is my option or judgement on service.
Guinness was good. It was just the racist manager at Q'ba that bugged me. He was licking balls of the Italian guy on the next table and when I wanted better seats he said that all tables were reserved (in a fucking empty restaurant). I asked for the bill and immediately moved to the next place.
Few things about Guinness that I distinctly remember were that it tasted like black coffee and I felt so full and non hungry after drinking it. Good. And 700 bucks :(
