Chennai - The cost of drinking out in India

Old India hands would probably know this already, but this post is for those who're first-timers to India. Drinking out can be expensive - especially at hotel outlets. For e.g., see our drink bill at I-Lounge, Asiana Hotel below:

Note that the original amount (as per menu prices0 was INR 1754.20.

Then, we add the taxes, including 58% VAT for Wine/Liquor tax, on top of 14.5% VAT for food, etc.

Final bill? INR 2835.00!
