“Are you here to watch the game or destroy other’s property? We made the amenities available for you to celebrate the spirit of football, but you destroy them instead.”

“Next time, we will display the faces of those who came to spoil the mood of the football game,” the angry owner wrote.

“If this is how things are going to be, we will be thinking twice before allowing guests to come to our restaurant to watch football,” he added.

Restaurant crew had to stay up to 5.30 am to clean up

Shihan also shared that his restaurant crew had to stay up until 5.30 am to clean the entire restaurant before they could operate normally in the morning.
