Eating out for some is a regular everyday thing, while for others it is something they do occasionally. Which ever of these categories you fall into there is one things in common, we all go to a restaurant or an eatery.
Going to these places to eat means you will be meeting other people there as well as the staffs who work there . Here are some simple restaurant etiquette you should always remember and adhere to.
🦋Dress accordingly : You know the popular saying “Dress how you want to be addressed”. It applies here. If you are going to a fancy restaurant you dress fancy. If it’s a family restaurant, the type people go to with children you dress decent. Keep it PG 😉.
🦋 Be Respectful: Be respectful to the staffs and others dinning or eating at the restaurant.How do I do that you may ask.
1. By greeting the door man or the waiter. They are people too you know . Do not treat the waiter like a servant .
2. By obeying the rules of the restaurant. Example , Some restaurants do not permit public display of affection between couples , others request you not shout or raise your voice as it disturbs the ambiance of the place .
3. When you want to make an order or request for something or a service try to make eye contact first with the waiter and signal them politely instead of shouting or screaming out waiter . Because I don’t know about you but for me I think i rather not be rude to the person handling my food . You know 🤷🏽♀️.
4. You do not have to eat like savages and splatter or scatter food all around the table . I know it’s their job to clear and clean the table after you are gone but eating neatly and not turning the table into a dump site won’t cost you anything.
🦋If you do not like the food or service provided request to see the manger politely or leave .
🦋Compliment the food and service if you are satisfied with it .
🦋 You can tip the staffs if it’s allowed in the restaurant.
🦋Do not steal from the restaurant . Yes those extra sachets of sugar or ketchup you put in your bag . Not classy . Stop doing that .
🦋 Wait for your food patiently and if it delays calls the waiters attention to it politely . I know a hungry man is an angry man but always try to remain calm .
🦋Do not rearrange the restaurant sitting arrangements. If you want an extra chair or table you request it be done by one of the staffs
Above all only go to a place you can afford , Enjoy and be comfortable.
Sometimes it’s not the place but the person or people you are with .
La taste restaurant is a small restaurant at Riyadh Khartoum sudan, with an indoor and outdoor setting . I love the natural setting outside , the use of real flowers for its center pieces and the shade provided by a big tree 🌳. I am not one to “eat out” but I do enjoy coffee, tea and confectioneries . If you are in Khartoum I would suggest you visit this place. The price is fair and the food is nice .I give it an 8/10 .
Always remember to spread kindness ✨.
