A couple surprised a Middletown waiter Saturday by leaving him a tip of $1,000,

A Facebook group that’s filled with good news about dining in the Middletown-Odessa-Townsend area had some great news on Saturday: a $1,000 tip.

“I’m really grateful for the $1000 tip I received from a customer this week,” wrote Ken Chen, a veteran server at Sushi Yama, on Middletown’s Main Street. “In addition to this generous tip, I feel very thankful of all of the tips I have gotten as not only are they able to help us workers economically, but also make us feel as we have satisfied our customer with our work. I love that there are so many people helping to support waiters like me (and other small business workers) during this time.”

Chen also posted the check, with some identifying lines blacked out, to the group. 

 

“Such an amazing gesture!” Jackie McClain wrote in one of many encouraging comments. “Our country is still good and kind.”

Restaurant owner Kent Chen — no relation to Ken — said Sunday that the couple who left the big type were regulars, and did not want to name them. They sat at the sushi bar for lunch on Tuesday and ordered five special rolls, a salad, iced tea and sake.

“We were surprised,” Kent Chen said, noting that the tip was split among the staff. “Thank you. Very nice.”
