Indian restaurant in Florida receives USD 2020 tip, social media post goes viral

A Florida-based Indian restaurant’s social media post about a whopping USD 2020 tip left by a generous patron has gone viral. Masala Mantra, an Indian bistro in the Cape Coral area of Florida put up a post on Facebook about a customer who left a larger than usual tip after a meal. 

The restaurant shared a photo of the invoice of the tip which showed the order total to be USD 269.51 plus a tip of USD 2020.

The extraordinarily large tip is part of the 2020 'Tip Challenge' which started a year ago to encourage tipping to help out restaurants in distress due to the COVID-19 pandemic and its effects on the food and hospitality industries.
