Viral restaurant in Foh Sang compounded by KPDN
KOTA KINABALU: A restaurant in Foh Sang which went viral recently on social media following a netizen’s complaint about its expensive food prices has been compounded for failing to put a price tag on the food and drinks sold.

Sabah KPDN Director Georgie Abas, in a statement, Saturday, said the was inspected on Friday by a team of law enforcement officers.

“During the inspection, two officers in plain clothes made a ‘test purchase’ of the food and drinks complained by the netizen before other uniformed officers came to carry out further investigations,” he said.

The inspection, he said, found that the price tags at the restaurant were incomplete and did not state the additional charge for the food that the customer wanted to add.

They also found that the restaurant failed to put price tags on two canned drinks sold on the premises.

The restaurant was then compounded on the spot amounting to RM200 for offences under the Price Control and Anti-profiteering Act 2011.

“The restaurant has also been advised to update the price list of the food and drinks they offer so that it is clearer and to display the food price list in Malay in addition to the existing Chinese.

“Further monitoring will be done from time to time on the restaurant to ensure the owner will always comply with the set regulations.”

KPDN, he said, always welcomes any information and complaints related to the misconduct of traders.

Consumers are also reminded to exercise their right to obtain a purchase receipt from the trader.

If the trader fails to provide a receipt, the customer can submit a complaint through WhatsApp (019-279 4317 / 019-848 8000), the complaint portal (e-aduan.kpdn.gov.my), or the call centre (1-800-886-800).
