I am a foodie, so I like to visit plenty of eating places. During the sorties, I observed a few things which might differentiate
pricey fancy restaurants from cheap budget restaurants.
Fancy : If you have to stay in a queue and have to be quiet, it is bound to be a fancy place.
Budget :You can be in a queue and shout to your hearts content.
Fancy : The “Fancier” the place, less the portion of the food.
Budget : The Portion does not depend on the cost, but on the whim of the chef.
Fancy : The waiters take their time to bring the dish to the table. They event wait an appropriate amount of time, before bringing the next course.
Budget : The waiters bring the food very fast, even though you haven’t finished your current meal.
Fancy : You can stay and chat as long as you want. Mostly, you wouldn’t be told to hurry up and leave as the guests are waiting.
Budget : Strong chance that people, ungraciously shouting, might form a queue and stand behind you till you complete the food , so as to book their seats.
