"There are many clients who make large orders in order to impress the people around them and boost their social prestige," the Gulf News quoted the restaurant owner, Fahad Al Anezi, as saying.

According to the report, the fine imposed on the dinners 'whose eyes or egos are bigger than their stomachs' will be decided according to the quantity of the leftovers.

Al Anezi said that the unprecedented idea has been largely endorsed by Saudis.
