“In this last attempt to save our brand, we will give over 30% off curated sets for dine-in customers from 17 July to 17 August at selected outlets. This special discount is to thank you for your support during Circuit Breaker (we couldn’t have lasted this long without you) and to encourage you and your family to dine with us.”

The letter appealing for the public’s help said it is giving a 30 per cent discount for dine-in customers from July 17 to Aug. 17 as a show of appreciation.
