In the video, the restaurant claims that a man had visited their outlet and was begging for some food, “He said it was for two of his children who hadn’t eaten yet. We gave him some free food right away! He promised to pay us back when he has the money.”
“It's okay, the food is on us!” the caption reads.
According to mStar, owner of the restaurant, Shafiq Razak told reporters that the restaurant was about to close at the time of the incident, when suddenly he received a call from one of his staff who said that someone had come asking for food.
After seeing the man, desperately asking for help, Shafiq told his staff to prepare two extra large servings of food for him.
The father was unable to hold back his emotions and started tearing up when the staff brought him the food.
The video has since gone viral online and has gained a lot of attention and praises from Malaysian netizens, “Looking at this taught me something, there are people who have it worse than us,” one person comments.
“Thank you for helping the man. We all have different lives and different challenges that we go through every day and sometimes, we can’t do it alone. We, too, need help.”
