Billing practice question

Hi there,

I was having lunch at the board's new favorite indian downtown, Thali (pretty inconsistent food IMHO). Here's what the menu says :

- Butter chicken, with choice of rice or nan : 7,50 $
- Rice : 2,50 $
- Nan : 1,50 $

I ordered butter chicken with rice and a extra nan. I was told by the register girl that I couldnt do that, and that as a general restaurant rule, I have to pick the cheapest side in my menu and pay for the more expensive side... So, despite argumentation (what if I just pay for the chicken + rice and decide for a nan later ?), I had to pay 10 $ instead of 9 $ i expected. No a big deal, but have you ever heard of such a rule being applied in other restaurants ?
