But, be honest…

This weekend, Obeli, the chic all-day dining hotspot in City Walk is running a fun new concept to celebrate its first anniversary. It’s called the ‘Honesty menu’.

‘What’s an Honesty menu?’ you ask. Well, essentially… diners who are enjoying a meal here, will be invited to pay what they truly believe their experience was worth. And… as the name suggests, be honest.

How does it work?

After your dining experience, rather than receiving a bill, you will receive a scorecard and envelope.

Using this, you will need to assess your experience, and ‘contribute’ what you think is appropriate, all while offering candid feedback. And remember, be honest…

Your envelope will remain anonymous and you will deposit it in a box as you leave the restaurant.

Why is the restaurant doing this? According to Aisha Al Tamimi, founder of Obeli, ‘Our honesty menu isn’t just about transparency, trust, and exceptional hospitality – it’s our way of listening to our guests, putting the power back in their hands to decide what their dining experience is truly worth to them.’

It’s also the restaurant’s way of finding out which dishes get top ratings, and the best one(s) will earn a spot on the new summer menu.
