Mandatory tip at Alhambra Palace?

ks1112 | Sep 29, 2007 08:39 AM

Hi:

Went to Alhambra Palace last night with some friends. There were four of us total and I was surprised to see a 20 percent gratuity added into our bill. I know many restaurants do this for larger groups but I've never seen this for just four people. The huge restaurant was barely full so maybe they're just that desperate? Just looking for your thoughts on this...

PS - Skip Alhambra Palace for the food. Save your money and go to Noon-o-Kabab or Semiramis on Kedzie.
