Only Fact (onlyfact.in) performed a reverse image search to uncover the true narrative concealed in the bill’s screenshot. The outlet found a News18 article with a reverse image search. The article’s headline read, “US Man Ends Up Paying Rs 45K at Gordon Ramsay Restaurant After Misreading Menu.”

According to reports, Jeffrey Paige, a man from New Jersey, USA, went on a dinner date and tried a new dish without thinking to check the rate card. Thinking that the American Wagyu was more expensive, he decided to acquire a 12-ounce portion of 5A Japanese Kobe. But when he received a charge for $600, or Rs. 45,000, he soon saw his mistake.
