"Tipping" Sri Lanka Local Custom Tip by Sambawalk
Sri Lanka Local Customs: 114 reviews and 114 photos
Tipping may be a culture or custom in one country but may not in another. It is common, by observation, that even local people would leave a rupree or two after their quick meal in local restaurant. As for the established restaurant for tourists, they may add on 10% service charge, but some don't in Unawatuna. Regardless 10% is added on to the bill or not, customer is expected to leave 10% of the total bill for the waiter.
I met an european couple and they explained that they would only tip for waiter who does his work more than usual. A barely servicing what you order on the table will get no tip. He also explained to some waiters who kept reminding him that "no 10% service charge is leived on the bill" the rationale of his "personal" principle.
After all, we may ask ourselves a question, do we get tipping from the work that we do in work place? The choice of tipping is yours.
