Was I ripped?

This is a part of our Cambodia forums to chat about anything Cambodia-related. This discussion forum is at the top of our site because it's usually the busiest part of the expat community chatter with random topics on just about everything, including expat life, Khmer politics, Cambodian blogs we have or have come across, or whatever else our members want to discuss. Whether you're an expatriate, tourist, Cambodian or random traveler just passing through South East Asia, you are welcome to talk about anything or start new topics yourselves.

A 15 dollar bottle nets them 5 dollars at 5 per glass. Expensive wine wines are priced the same way, just not sold by the glass.
If my F&B managers worked with those margins; they'd be looking for new jobs.
:lol: I'm glad an expert pitched in to confirm what I was thinking and that it is bollocks. With that kind of margin a restaurant would make more money not selling wine at all and merely charging corkage on customers BYO.

In Ontario it was priced the same converted to US currency. The LCBO has an excellent inventory system; the province only had 5 bottles and Toronto 1. And I got it!
