Restaurant fines diners for leftovers

A Saudi restaurant has started fining diners if they order more than they can eat.

Fahad Al Anezi, owner of the Marmar Restaurant in the city of Dammam, said he wanted to avoid wasting food.

He also wanted to encourage customers to be less extravagant with their orders, reports Gulf News.

"There are many clients who make large orders in order to impress the people around them and boost their social prestige," he said.

Diners were made to pay an extra charge which was decided depending on how much food they left, he added.
