Puzzlement turned to surprise for a March woman in an Indian restaurant last night when she was quizzed about her previous visit – and then given £20.

It turned out the customer had dropped the £20 note on the floor following her last visit – before Christmas- and staff had been waiting expectantly ever since to return it.

The woman posted on a Facebook public forum today that “I was so taken aback last night in a good way when I visited Shah Jahan for a meal.

“When ordering he asked us when we last visited...I recalled just before Christmas. “The waiter said that night when I left I dropped a £20 note near my table.

“They proceeded then to knock the £20 of our bill....what can I say?
