Malaysian netizens go bananas over Raj’s Banana Leaf fiasco


An Indian restaurant in Bangsar has been exposed for washing dishes with dirty puddles of recycled water as exposed in a video that has gone viral.

The restaurant, Raj’s Banana Leaf, today (29 May 2018) apologised for the incident, blaming it on supposedly new workers.

The restaurant is a Bangsar restaurant. It is yet to be seen if restaurant goers will buy the excuse.

Here’s is the apology from the restaurant shared on the Facebook today (29 May 2018):

Dear customers,

We would like to apologise for an unfortunate incident by our newly recruited staffs at our Bangsar outlet recently. This has never happened before, and should not have had happened. We also want to assure you that Raj’s Banana Leaf consistently passes the health inspections conducted regularly.

We are very sorry by the regrettable actions by our new staffs and understand that this is not acceptable. We will continue to monitor our kitchen attentively and carefully, as hygiene and cleanliness are our top priority. Strict actions have been taken against these staffs and we would also like to ensure you that it will not happen again.

We truly understand your concerns. However I hope you will still give us a chance to serve you in the future. Please come back for a complementary “Buka Puasa” dinner at Raj’s Banana Leaf BANGSAR outlet only from 7.30pm-9.30pm on 31-05-2018 (Thursday) and feel free to personally get in touch with me if you have further concerns.

We very much appreciate your patronage, and again, we are sincerely sorry for what had happened and ensure this would never happen again.

Thank you very much.
