Brawl over restaurant meal

RCMP had to be called to separate a brawl outside a Richmond restaurant in which customers allegedly attacked the owner and his wife.

According to Chinese language social media site WeChat, the fight started after a family of five refused to pay the full bill at the Chuan Ku BBQ Restaurant Friday evening.

It’s understood the dispute began inside the restaurant over the customers’ claims that some of the food was raw and their subsequent offer to pay only $50 of a $147 bill.

The argument then spilled outside and one of the customers could be seen apparently trying to punch restaurant owner Roger Wang on the head, while he was on the ground.

Wang’s wife was on the ground at the same time, with another customer appearing to be on top of her.

“I tried to stop them from walking out of the door and told them to wait for the police,” Wang said. “They pushed me on the wall. My wife came out and wanted to stop the fight, but a family member kicked my wife’s belly.”

As they threw $50 on the table and tried to leave the restaurant, Wang contacted the police for help.

“Several employees of the restaurant and patrons were engaged in a physical altercation that allegedly stemmed from an accusation of improperly prepared food and the payment of said food,” said RCMP spokesperson Cpl. Dennis Hwang.

“The parties involved did not appear to be seriously injured and were assessed by emergency medical personnel. No arrests were made following the investigation of the incident.”
