Ashneer Grover Likes Service Charges Being Levied At Restaurants, Here’s Why

On this episode of Sunday Brunch, we had the opportunity to enjoy some ‘doglapan’ with the one and only Ashneer Grover! Our Editor-in-Chief, Kamiya Jani, met him at his residential place, The Camellias, in Gurgaon. A lot of startup owners have shifted to The Camellias because buying a residential property saves taxes. And yes, we got that information from Ashnner himself. He also told us that he prefers when restaurants levy service charges because he doesn’t have to think too much about it. Scroll to read more.

Ashneer Grover Prefers When Service Charge Is Mentioned

We played a fun game with Ashneer Grover where we gave him some options and then he was supposed to rate them on a scale of 1 to 10; 10 being his favourite word, doglapan. Upon hearing this, he seemed really excited to play this game. One of the options was ‘service charges at a restaurant’, and he was all for it. He explained that service charges should be levied at restaurants because then it becomes easier just to give the tip as mentioned on the bill.

He told us that he doesn’t have to think about how much of a tip he will give. Thus, the tip mentioned is much easier for him. He also joked and said that he is aware that when he enters a restaurant, there is a fixed 10% or 15% service charge. So, he is better off paying that fixed amount and he said that he loves it when places have fixed service charges. What do you think is better, a fixed amount of service charge or paying how much you want to?

Continuing with the same game with a rating scale of 1 to doglapan, we asked him about expensive food at single-screen movie theatres. He went on to laugh and said, “That is 20 on doglapan. Matlab hazar rupaye ka popcorn se mehengi cheez, per gram maine nahi khareedi. Sona bhi usse sasta lagta hai.” (Buying gold feels cheaper than buying popcorn for 1000 rupees, upon comparing both per gram.) Yes, we feel the same; popcorn doesn’t feel like popcorn when you are paying that much for a tub. They sure feel like they are gold-plated. Do you agree or not?
