comment If a hotel staff asks me for buffet food, can there be consequences if I bring him food?
Sigh. Yes, I did read. I didn't jump to conclusions. Yes you used the phrase 'if in doubt, pay' but it's buried within sentences like 'nothing can go wrong from your side' which from other forums is just plain untrue. I've not voted yet, but currently I disagree with this line of answering greatly, sorry. 'Be proud of yourself' for stealing from the restaurant? Nope.

A quick search of other forums including seeing people be arrested for doing this - it's theft.

The point of a buffet is that the food there is yours to EAT your full, not to take for others. The restaurant makes money based on a calculation of how much the average person eats. If people start taking extras for homeless, beggers, towel boys or even left overs, the restaurant will suffer.
