BANGKOK: Embarrassed by two of his compatriots’ bad behaviour, a Chinese man came to a Bangkok buffet restaurant to pay a bill of 2,600 baht (US$70) after a clip of two Chinese women fleeing without paying went viral on Chinese social media.

The owner of About Beef Lava Grill in Bangkok did not release the name of the man when he posted his picture on his restaurant’s Facebook page on Tuesday (April 16) night.

The post said that after a clip of two Chinese women fleeing from the restaurant on April 12 instead of paying their bill of 2,696 baht, a good citizen of China came to the shop to pay it.

The post said the Chinese man could speak a little Thai, and recounted that a clip of the two women fleeing the shop went viral in China.

The man said he was embarrassed by the behaviour of the two Chinese tourists, whom he did not know.

The post quoted the man as saying that he felt sorry for the loss to the restaurant so he decided to pay the bill.

After the shop realised that the two tourists had fled without paying the bill, it posted footage from the shop’s security cameras in the night of April 12.

The footage showed the two young Chinese women – one in white dress and another in black – bolting from the shop to their parked car and speeding off.

The post pleaded with the two to come back to pay the bill or else employees in charge of overseeing their table would have to shoulder the cost. - The Nation/ANN
