Leave tip in cash at Yummy Yummy

We were astounded to learn, on our most recent of several visits to Yummy Yummy, the new Japanese Thai restaurant in Owen Sound,

that if you enter a tip on your credit card slip, your server (unless it's the owner!) does not see one cent of it. The only way a server gets any tips is if you slip him/her the cash.

This is absolutely unacceptable in today's world. Cultural differences do not make it OK to defraud a customer of that 10-20% of his bill that he might leave for the server. Even worse, to deprive staff of what is hard-earned income is despicable to say the least.

We are sure the Ministry of Labour and the Canada Revenue Agency would love to hear about this.

Heads up, Yummy Yummy - you are creating wonderful food - don't

alienate your customers by treating your staff unfairly! Because we love your food, we are giving you another chance here; however, if we hear that you have not changed your treatment of staff, you will

not see another cent of our restaurant spending.

Hi All,

As I said with my first post above (Reply # 1)…

TripAdvisor really isn’t the place for this info / action… as it IS NOT Travel Related… and a topic that strongly is relying on hearsay… rather than fact (it could be fact IF someone actually filed a complaint with the Labour Board against this employer).

As it stands now… this post clearly comes across here as a “Call to Boycott”… AND "discussion of possible criminal behaviour"... which is clearly against the TA GUIDELINES

TA – FORUMS POSTING GUIDELINES = tripadvisor.com/help/what_are_the_guidelines…

Cheers!

I've heard this before, and consequently, we almost always tip in cash unless the wallet is completely dry. Only rarely do I put the tip on the credit card.

Canada Eh

We will most definitely not go here for our 30th! My husband has been in food service for over 30 years. Waiters/waitresses make less then minimum wage, they survive on tips.
