Mumbai hotel charges Rs 850 for a boiled egg

MUMBAI: A patron’s revelation of being charged Rs 850 per boiled egg, excluding taxes, at a luxury hotel in the financial capital led to a social media furore on Sunday. It comes days after actor Rahul Bose had complained about paying Rs 442 for two bananas in a Chandigarh hotel. After paying Rs 1,700 for two boiled eggs and a goods and services tax at 18 per cent at Central Mumbai's Four Seasons Hotel, author-photographer Karik Dhar tweeted out a picture of his bill, further fuelling chatter on how star hotels charge for common items. Hotel spokesperson could not be reached for comments immediately. PTI
