the day before yesterday, a friend of mine orders a greek salad from casper & gambini (sharq, around arraya center) - as the menu states, he pays 2,150 kd for the order - yesterday, he and a couple of guys decide to visit the restaurant instead of ordering in, but to everyone's surprise, the price of the salad jumps to 3, 450 kd!
he calls the waiter and asks him if the portions were the same for table & delivery, the waiter confirms the exact match - then the next logical question was about the price discrepancy, to which the waiter replies that delivery is actually cheaper than table or dine-in!
the guys were all puzzled as why would delivery be cheaper, like 38% cheaper!?! no wonder the restaurant is always empty! i mean what is casper's objective, drive people away from the restaurant and encourage delivery? if so, why pay a fat rent for such a big space in the first place? can someone explain??
thanks ramy for the story - if i were you, i'd order the salad to the office, then take it down to the restaurant and eat it there, slowly, very slowly just for spite!
